I cannot find, in the New Experience, any way to connect the note content with the highlight location. What am I missing?
I think there may be two different issues in your comment above:1. Unable to see what you highlighted
This is a significant problem with the new design. I find it greatly reduces usability, but I don't know if they'll ever do anything about it. Here are a couple of ideas on how to deal with it (I don't really like any of the options):
2. How to connect the note content with the highlight region
- Highlight the text. Then find your note in the sidebar, click on it, and from the "..." menu at the top of the note, choose Edit. You'll be able to see your content on the right panel and the edit window opens in the middle panel.
- If your screen is big/wide enough, open a separate browser window and put them side by side. Look at the highlighted content in one window and edit the note in the other window.
- Highlight something. Open the comment window. Try to remember what it was that inspired you to take a note and write something. Close the edit window to go back and reread the highlighted content, reopen the edit window and continue trying to make your comment. Repeat until you've completed your note, given up, completely forgotten why you were inspired to make a note in the first place, or gone insane.
If you have made a tag or added a comment, you'll see either a tag or a comment icon to the right of the text where you started your note. You can click on the icon and your note will open in the right panel.
If you are making notes on scriptures, you'll see verse numbers associated with your note on the right panel. This makes it easy to browse the right panel and find your notes along with footnotes. If you're annotating something else, like a magazine article or general conference talk, this is less useful, because you can see your comment, but you don't know to where it corresponds in the text.
