Bar Ilan Software Support - Chapter 11 Personal Notes and Links

   

You can annotate Bar Ilan Responsa texts and add links from Responsa texts currently displayed on screen to other texts of your choice. Likewise, you can edit notes and links after you have entered them, save them to a file, print them, copy them to the clipboard, or delete them.

Adding Notes


    To add comments to Bar ilan Responsa CD texts which are currently displayed on screen:

1.    Position the cursor where you want the note to appear.

2.    From the Edit menu, click Add Note.

3.    The Edit Notes window will open up. In the Note box, type the text of the note.

4.    Click OK to save the note, or Cancel to discard the note. A note icon ( http://www.judaismshop.com/judaismimages/support/Note-Icon-11A.jpg) will appear next to the word you annotated. (If the word also has a link attached to it, a note-link icon (http://www.judaismshop.com/judaismimages/support/Note-link%20Icon%2011B.jpg) will appear next to the word.)

•   In the Bar Ilan Responsa Software CD you cannot annotate ordinary search results, only texts which are displayed in text windows or expanded display windows. However, note icons on texts which you have annotated will be displayed in search results containing these texts.
•    If you want to change the text of a note you had added, click the word next to the relevant note icon. Then click Edit Notes and edit the note, and click OK to save your corrections.
•  In the Bar Ilan Disc you can include multiple notes on a single word.
•    To edit multiple notes on a single word, click the word, and then click Edit; the first note will then be displayed. Edit it and click OK (or click OK if you don’t want to change this particular note). Then the next note will be displayed, ready to be edited.
Alternatively, you can edit multiple notes on a single word by clicking Tools, then Notes Manager. Then click the first note that you want to edit and click Edit, and click OK when you are finished editing it. Repeat until you have finished editing all of the relevant notes.


Copying Notes


     In your Bar Ilan Responsa disc to copy an existing note to a new location:

1.    Position the cursor where you want to copy the note.

2.    From the Edit menu, click Copy Note. The Notes Manager will open up.

3.    Click the note which you want to copy.

4.    Click the Copy button.

Adding Links


    To add hyperlinks of your choice from a Bar Ilan Responsa text currently displayed on screen to another Responsa text:
 
1.    Position the cursor on the word where you want to add the link.

2.    From the Edit menu, click Insert Link.

3.    To insert a link to a text in another open Bar Ilan Responsa CD window, click From Open Window. To insert a link to a Responsa text which is not currently displayed on screen, click From Text.

4.    Specify the text to which you want to link, and click OK. A link icon (http://www.judaismshop.com/judaismimages/support/Link-Icon-11C.jpg ) will appear next to the word where you added a link. (If the word also has a note attached to it, a note-link icon (http://www.judaismshop.com/judaismimages/support/Note-link%20Icon%2011B.jpg ) will appear next to the word.)

•    To display a link which you inserted, click the word next to the link icon. Alternatively, position the cursor over the link icon, and a tooltip containing the text of the link will appear on screen.
•    To display the text associated with the link, you have to click the link itself (underlined).


Viewing Notes and Links
    To view personal notes or user-specified links to Bar Ilan Responsa texts, do one of the following:

    Position the cursor on the word next to the note or link icon. A tooltip containing the text of the note or link will appear on screen.
    From the View menu, click Notes and Links.
    From the Tools menu, click Notes Manager. Then click the notes or links you want to view, and click View.
    Remember that to view the source associated with a link, you have to click the link (underlined).

Working With Notes and Links


    Within your Bar Ilan Responsa Program to view, edit, delete, copy (to the clipboard), save (to a file), or print notes or links:
 
1.    From the Tools menu, click Notes Manager.

2.    Click the titles of the windows you want to view, edit, copy, save, or print.

•    To change the order of the notes displayed in the Notes Manager, click the appropriate column, and the notes will be rearranged, in ascending or descending order, based on the column you clicked and the direction of the arrow at the top of the selected column.
