Using Bookmarks in the Scripture Study Bible App
One of the most powerful way to learn the Bible is to compare different passages with each other. The Old Testament gives deep context and background to events in the New Testament, for example. Psalm 22 is an amazingly accurate prophecy of Jesus' death, resurrection and future Kingdom on Earth.
There are three tools that are useful for comparing different passages:-
- Open the passages in different tabs. To open a passage in a different tab, click/tap the plus icon in the tab strip. In the new tab that opens, either browse to the second passage or click/tap a bookmark or daily reading reference in the navigation page. Previous tabs will be left open and the required passage will open in the new tab.
- Open a passage in an entirely new window. In the bottom-right corner there is a “New window” command. If it is hidden to save space, click/tap the three dots to open the menu of hidden commands. The “New window” command will open a new window and allow you to position two (or more) passages side-by-side by arranging the windows on your device any way you wish.
- Save bookmarks to the passages to find them quickly later. If there are passages that you're thinking about and want to return to the next time you open the app (or later in the same session), you can bookmark them. The rest of this page describes bookmarks in more detail.
Bookmarks are a list of references that appear in the navigation-pane on the left side of the app. You can add any chapter or verse to the bookmarks list, and remove it when you've done. Unlike Tabs, Bookmarks are saved so if you close and re-open the app, any Bookmarks you created previously will still be there.
If you've configured a folder to store your notes in, and have used OneDrive or DropBox for that folder, then bookmarks are synchronized between different devices. Bookmark a passage when reading on your tablet and then research it later on your desktop computer, for example.
Creating a Bookmark
To create a bookmark for a chapter, navigate to the chapter and check that the window title shows the chapter you expect. Then click or tap the “Add bookmark” command in the command bar at the bottom of the window. The bookmark will appear on the left in the navigation list.
To create a bookmark for a specific verse, navigate to the chapter and then click or tap the verse to select it. From there, click or tap the “Add bookmark” command. Again, the bookmark will appear in a list on the left.
Removing a Bookmark
To remove a bookmark, first click or tap it in the bookmarks list to open it in a tab. The command bar at the bottom should show a “Remove bookmark” command. Click or tap that command to remove the bookmark from the list in the navigation pane.
