I've yet to switch to JWLibrary for highlighting because I am likely to buy a new iPad in the spring and there appears to be no way of making backups. I am still using equipd with its 9 different highlighting / underlining options.

I use the first colour for answering a) questions, and colours 2 and 3 for answering b ) and c) questions.

Colour 4 I use for lists of things, like highlighting the 12 tribes in a passage of scripture.

Colour 5 I use to highlight something I need to personally work on or I want to bring extra attention to.

JWLibrary 'only' has four highlighting options.

How do you use the available colours?

I highlight the ideas that I consider important, not necessarily the answers to questions, even though I look for the answer as well.

The colors do not matter for me ... use them just for separating classes of ideas sometimes .

Personaly I dont like the jw library for prestudying my watchtower due to my losing my underlining one morning after the app updated. Besides it takes too long to go from the bible to my watchtower and back again at the meeting. The JW library is a great reference tool, but I dont find it fast enough to replace multiple publications at the same time.

I try to highlight the main points, not the answer. I was always taught not to read the answer directly from the paragraph, unless I was making a direct quote. For this reason one colour is enough for me. That is not to say I don't use more than one colour, I just avoid it, because for me, muliple colours are just a distraction. Guess I'm just weird.

I literally thought I would not use highlighting in jw library till I could also write notes through the app.

But I recently got iPad and found the notes the multitasking way was a good alternative when using app for highlighting

So I love jw app becouse it keeps my publications way more organized then iBooks

I use JW Library for almost everything now. I'm a bit OCD, so having multiple apps to study/reference sort of drives me a little crazy.  :wacko: At one point I was using MoonReader, EasyPDF, Squid (used to be Papyrus) and maybe another app or two, all in conjunction. I've decided to just stick mostly with the JW Library app for the time being.

 

I do have a separate physical notebook/scrapbook that I keep things in just for me if I want to study further, save, remember later, etc. A conglomeration of notes on material I actually use at the meeting is distracting to me, as well, even if they are my own notes. Simple highlighting is great, it lets me focus on the main points or the points I want to apply or share.
