Lesson 2: Consultant Notes
Where are we?
If you are doing exegesis on a text, you'll certainly want to take notes. You can take notes of course by writing them in a notebook, or in a word document, but at some point you may want to share your notes with other consultants. Paratext already has a good system for sharing notes between team members, now we will look at the notes system designed specifically for consultants.
Why is this important?
The consultant notes in Paratext are attached to verses and can be accessed when you're looking at that verse in any translation of of the Bible or in any resource. That way, when you are consulting with a team, or when you are preparing for a checking session, you always have access to your personal notes. These notes, however, are stored in their own project and as a result may be shared between consultants.
What are we going to do?
In this lesson, we're going to learn how to create consultant notes and how to work with them.
