You can type your own tags or click on our suggestions.  Tags need to be made as one word or connected with a hyphen to be considered as one.  For example  Final Exam is considered as two words, by search.  However Final-Exam is considered as one.  When you are finished with notes, tags, and highlighting, click "save" to keep your work.

If you want to adjust the note or remove it, just hover over the highlighted area until you see the pop-up, then click on the pencil to edit or click the trash can to delete and remove.  

Clicking delete removes the note, the highlight, and any tags associated with that particular highlighted area.
