BTT Writer for Android™: Working with Footnotes¶
A footnote is additional information about a certain part of the text. The footnote usually appears at the bottom of a book’s page.
In BTT Writer, a footnote is shown as a black page icon that you tap to display the footnote.
Footnotes can provide further explanation when:
- There are names or other words that differ between various Bible versions
- Some versions of the Bible have words or verses that are not in the ULB.
To translate a footnote:
- In the source text, tap the footnote to open it.
- It’s not possible to copy/paste the footnote text.
- You may need to write down the translation because you can’t have the original footnote open and type into the footnote translation at the same time.
- Open the translated chunk in the Check view.
- If the chunk is marked as done, tap the “mark the chunk as done” toggle so that the chunk is not marked as done.
- Tap the pencil icon.
- Tap at the place where you want to add the footnote.
- Tap the Add Footnote icon at the top left of the translated chunk (this icon appears only in the Check view of the chunk).
- Translate the footnote in the source text into the “Add Footnote” pop-up and tap OK.
- The footnote icon now appears inline. Tap the check mark to save the changes.
To edit or delete a translated footnote:
- Ensure the chunk is not marked done and that you are not in Edit mode.
- Tap the footnote.
- Tap DELETE to delete it or EDIT to edit it.
- When finished, mark chunk as done.
