Since Spatial Hypertext can contain so much information at so many levels, it's easy to get lost. Even worse, it's easy to lose notes, to forget where a particular one can be found.
The Bookmarks feature helps you collect notes for later viewing.
To add a bookmark, just click the "Bookmark" link on the top right of this window. It will automatically be added to the toolbar on the left. This note can then be opened from anywhere by simply clicking on it on the bookmarks toolbar.
Bookmarks can be removed in two ways. First, all bookmarks can be cleared by clicking "Clear List". Secondly, when a note has been bookmarked, the "Bookmark" link is replaced by "Remove Bookmark" at the top right.
(at the moment, the "Remove Bookmark" option only appears after the Note window has been closed and reopened. Sorry about the confusion)
If you want to view the map area which surrounds a bookmarked note, simply click the view links button, and the map view will change to the level of the map where that note resides.
The Bookmarks tool has one more feature, the Import Tool. This can be used to share bookmarks with someone else. This is very useful for large collections of information, where it might take other people a long time to find all the notes that you think are very important. With the Bookmark tool, you can give them a set of bookmarks to help them find their way.
At the top of the list is a text box and an Import button. Each time you add a bookmark, the content of the text box is updated to describe the current set of bookmarks. To send someone your bookmark list, just copy the contents of the text box and send it to them, along with a link to any part of the site. Don't worry about reading it; it's designed to be intelligible to the software.
If you receive a link and a bookmarks list, simply (1) open the link, (2) clear your bookmarks, if you have any, (3) paste the bookmarks list into the text box, and (4) click import.
If you have bookmarks that you want to keep, but you also want to import new ones, just clear the contents of the text box, paste the new list of bookmarks in, and they will be added to your existing set.
Go ahead. Try creating bookmarks with the notes around this one. Don't forget to Step In and Up to experiment with bookmarks from different levels.
