How do I set a bookmark?

  • You will need to open the book in which you want to bookmark.
  • Next you will need to place your reading position so that it appears at the top of your panel. (e.g. ESV Bible was opened with Luke 2:1 at the top of the pane)
  • You can then use the keyboard to set a bookmark by pressing key combination Ctrl+Shift+1 on PC or Cmd+Opt+Shift+1 on Mac (replacing 1 with which bookmark that you want, from 1 to 9).
    • In example below, ESV Luke 2:1 was created by pressing Ctrl+Shift+4 on PC or Cmd+Opt+Shift+4 on Mac => 4th bookmark.

  • Or you can drag and drop a bookmark using the numbered steps below. Dragging is holding down the left mouse button while moving the mouse (don’t release the mouse button while moving the mouse) and dropping occurs when you release the mouse button.
    1. Open the Favorites tool so that you can see Bookmarks on your work area. (see How do I view the Bookmarks tool? ).

    4. Drag the Tab for your book to the bookmark that you want to have it saved as (e.g. the image shows saving the ESV in the 4th bookmark).
