5. Adding Notes & Attachments to references
• The Notes, Research Notes, and Abstract fields can each hold up to
64,000 characters, which is equivalent to about 16 pages of text.
• Use the Notes field to store personal reminders, such as the
location of a quotation in a book or the quotation itself.
• Use the Abstract field for a brief description of the contents of the
work.
1. Double Click on a reference to edit the details. Go to the fields
you require and type.
2. Right Click and select File Attachments to a add a file.
6. Creating Groups & Adding References to Groups
• Groups make it easy to break a large
library into subsets for later viewing. A
group simply points to a subset of
references that already exist in the
library.
1. Click on Create Group from the
Group menu and give it a relevant
name.
2. Drag & Drop references into groups
to keep references organised.
