You can delete, or modify an existing name or color, as well.

Aside from that, the "Bookmarks" readies additional option as the "Bookmarks/Search All". This enables another function like sharable bookmarks.

  
    

5.12.1. Bookmarks - Add

When you tap [ + ] at either the upper-right /or bottom-right corner in the "Bookmarks", the "Add Bookmark" appears.

Once this is used, you will be able to re-display this with fresh results by just tapping [Find] > [Bookmarks] or an independent [Bookmarks] icon from the Toolbar, unless you get the regular "Bookmarks" back.

This auxiliary option enables you to use another function like sharable bookmarks aside from the regular bookmarks. That is what can keep something like bookmarks even while sharing text files between a Mac, PC, other devices, or Dropbox or Evernote.

This can search for all of what the regular search can search for. Then it looks for all occurrences of the search expression in the current text and then displays a list of results containing the searched strings, like the "Search All". Not only viewing a searched text, you can rewrite and edit any text including a response to the search while searching.

  
    

What makes this different from those regular Toolbar actions of the "Search All" and the "Bookmarks" is the following.

A. These two things specified here are memorized separately for the exclusive use of the "Bookmarks".

1. The character strings you last searched
- the word or phrase, or the conditional expression you typed to search for
2. The "Search Options" you last specified

B. Once the "Bookmarks/Search All" is used, tapping these two Toolbar actions will switch to displaying a list of pre-re-searched results in the "Bookmarks/Search All" directly, from displaying the regular "Bookmarks".

1. [Find] > [Bookmarks]
2.
An independent [Bookmarks] icon (Only on iPad or in landscape view in iPhone)

* These differences will remain unless you get the regular "Bookmarks" back. And which allows you to call a list of re-searched results by the pre-specified conditions in the "Bookmarks/Search All" every time quickly, and view any searched text repeatedly. This is what makes the "Bookmarks/Search All" 'another function like bookmarks'.

C. Regular bookmarks you added are not included in a Plain Text file. As equally, they are not saved on any server including of neither Dropbox nor Evernote. In contrast, using the "Bookmarks/Search All" keeps something like sharable bookmarks in any sharing text file and on any server, and lists them in iText Pad quickly.

* If you want to share text files including something like bookmarks between a Mac, PC, other devices, Dropbox, or Evernote, use the "Bookmarks/Search All" together with or instead of the regular "Bookmarks".

D. The "Bookmarks/Search All" is more flexible than the regular "Bookmarks". Because it has a wide potential of searching including identifying keys you demand. You can try to narrow subjects down, or alternate between one bookmarks and another one such as a table of contents, according to the situation. Any of you will like this strength. Make good use of this.

  
    

Before using this as a function like bookmarks, you need to prepare something like bookmarks that are aimed at this function in a text. First, just read this over once. Then plan ahead, and you will not be lost.

1. Tap [Back] at either the upper-left /or bottom-left corner of the screen to go back the regular text editing.

2. Then insert any word or phrase which can be a name of the whole bookmarks or each bookmark or a certain subject - such as "<BOOKMARKS>", "<BOOKMARK1>", or "<FAVORITES>", to all specific texts those are aimed at you want to bookmark in the Write mode.

* If you want simply to list all bookmarks, you can insert only one same name - such as "<BOOKMARKS>" to every specific text.

* You can insert several words - such as "<BOOKMARK1>", "<BOOKMARK2>", "<BOOKMARK3>", as required. If you want to list each bookmark or a certain subject individually, you can insert each different name - such as "<BOOKMARK1>" or "<FAVORITES>" to each specific text.

* If you classify those names according to a purpose, it can be easier to use. A list under the name's will be available.
- such as 'what you want to list with this function' are '<BOOKMARKS> between <CONTENTS> alternately', or '<FAVORITES> and/or <HEADLINES> by the category'.

* If the text file contains such word or phrase originally, or contains any conditional expression which can be specified as a bookmark name - such as "Chapter", you can omit this.

- Tips ;
If you want to make this same as the regular bookmarks, you can insert "<BOOKMARKS/each bookmark name you added>" to each specific text.
Then, you will be able to list them like the regular bookmarks with the Regular Expression "<BOOKMARKS/.+>".

* Like this, you can make a name hierarchically, providing you use the Regular Expression when searching. A list of the upper name mentions will be available.

Once the preparation is done, you can begin searching in the "Bookmarks/Search All".

3. Just tap [Find] > [Bookmarks] or an independent [Bookmarks] icon from the Toolbar.
It will return to this "Bookmarks/Search All".

  
    

1. Tap the search bar and type the word or phrase you have inserted - such as "<BOOKMARKS>", "<CONTENTS>", "<BOOKMARK1>", or "<FAVORITES>", then tap [Search].

iText Pad searches for all occurrences of the inserted word or phrase, or the specified conditional expression in the current text at once and displays a list of searched results like bookmarks. Unless it searches for anything, it will respond "0".

* By tapping [x] at the right side in the search bar, you can clear all the text in it.
* By tapping [Done] on the onscreen keyboard, you can just hide the keyboard.
* By tapping the [Bookmarks] icon at the right side in the search bar, you can set the "Search Options". If it does not appear, tapping [x] makes it appear.

* If you want to search for a text with the conditional expressions, you can also use the Regular Expression.
- Turn the Regular Expression ON in the "Search Options" and tap [Back], and then type.

- Examples ; 'what you want to list here' are A-F

A. '<BOOKMARKS> and/or <CONTENTS>' = <BOOKMARKS>|<CONTENTS>
B.
'<BOOKMARK1> and/or <HEADLINES> and/or <FAVORITES>' = <BOOKMARK1>|<HEADLINES>|<FAVORITES>
C.

It saves your changes every few minutes to safeguard your edits, in case iText Pad quits unexpectedly.
Make sure you save a file before closing in any case, or all unsaved changes will be discarded.

None Does not make a temporary file nor safeguards your edits.

Encoding Drag the slider to the right or left, and choose any you want from the the following character encodings. When you save files, iText Pad makes files with the selected encoding.

ASCII Takes precedence to save all the files in ASCII character encoding rather than UTF-8 character encoding. Only when the file includes the Unicode compatibility characters, iText Pad saves it in UTF-8 character encoding. This is the default.
UTF-8 Saves all the files in UTF-8 character encoding, even if the file does not include the Unicode compatibility characters. Choose this, if you want to keep the file-compatibility with other devices through the Dropbox Server or the Evernote.

Western (Windows-1252) Takes precedence to save all the files in Windows-1252 character encoding rather than UTF-8 character encoding. This is a character encoding of the Latin alphabet, used by default in the legacy components of Microsoft Windows in English and some other Western languages. Only when the file includes the Unicode compatibility characters, iText Pad saves it in UTF-8 character encoding.
Western (Mac OS Roman) Takes precedence to save all the files in Mac OS Roman character encoding rather than UTF-8 character encoding. This is a character encoding primarily used by Classic Mac OS, suitable for English and several other Western languages. Only when the file includes the Unicode compatibility characters, iText Pad saves it in UTF-8 character encoding.

Return Code Drag the slider to the right or left, and choose one from the following New Line codes. When you save files, iText Pad makes files with the selected code.

6. Handy Tips

  
    

6.1. What file formats can I open in iText Pad ?

You can open the following 3 files in iText Pad.

Plain Text file (.txt)
ePub file (.epub)
zip file (.zip) - Compressed from .txt and .epub

  
    

6.1.1. Let me show you more about a Plain Text File

iText Pad saves your text as a Plain Text file. Files have the extension .txt.

In computing, Plain Text is the contents of an ordinary sequential file readable as textual material without much processing, usually opposed to formatted text. Plain text files can be opened, read, and edited with most text applications.
See more > How can I exchange iText Pad files between a Mac, PC, or other devices ?

In Plain Text, there are several character encodings and control codes that depend on what language or OS it uses.

Examples of the Unicode compatibility characters ;
* Precomposed diacritic letters, such as accented, Umlautzeichen, trema, etc.
* International Phonetic Alphabet
* Ligatures in the Latin
* Precomposed Roman numerals or fractions
* Mathematical Alphanumeric Symbols
* Enclosed or Circled alphanumerics and ideographs
* Japanese extended Kanji-characters of the "level 3 or 4 Kanji set", emphasis dots, or decorated characters

To distinguish the character encodings of the file between ASCII/ShiftJIS and UTF-8, you can use "Show Unicode Red" in [Settings].

With "Return Code" in [Settings], you can change the New Line code to CR+LF or CR.
* CR+LF (CARRIAGE RETURN + LINE FEED/code number:000D+000A), standard on Windows.
* CR (CARRIAGE RETURN /code number:000D), standard on Classic Mac OS.

 

  
    

6.1.2. How can I preview epub eBooks ?

With iText Pad, you can preview a variety of .epub eBooks, in text.

ePub (short for electronic publication; alternately capitalized as EPUB, EPub, or epub) is a free and open e-book standard, by the International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF). Files have the extension .epub. ePub became the official standard of the International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF) in September 2007, superseding the older Open eBook standard.

You can download over a million public domain books in the Open ePub Format from many websites around the world, including Google Books, and the Apple iBook Store.

When you open an .epub file in iText Pad, iText Pad automatically changes it into a text file including bookmarks. See more > How can I exchange iText Pad files between a Mac, PC, or other devices ?

Note that, iText Pad must be sure that the file you are going to open is indeed out of copyright under laws. Due to copyright restrictions, iText Pad can read only the standard non-DRM ePub files, so can not read the commercial DRM-protected[1] ePub files and non-public domain files.

6.2.4. How can I share iText Pad bookmarks with another iText Pad ?

You can bring your iText Pad bookmarks file ".plist" into another iText Pad, as well as the text files ".txt", if desired.

iText Pad creates another bookmarks file "FileName.plist" in each text file "FileName.txt". Each bookmarks' file has the same name as the text file. But the bookmarks' files are saved separately within the "(_Application_Support_)/ Attributes/ Documents/" folder.
To share bookmarks, transfer the bookmarks file together with the text file.

In the Finder on a Mac or PC, you can manually move a transferred bookmarks file "FileName.plist" so that the bookmarks file and the text file "FileName.txt" are not separated, and together within the same hierarchy's folder. Then you can re-bring the moved bookmarks file into your iText Pad or other devices. After you re-bring a bookmarks file, iText Pad will read/write the moved bookmarks file instead of the earlier one.

* iText Pad text file "FileName.txt" is saved at ;
"/Documents/ FolderName/ FileName"
* Text Pad bookmarks file "FileName.plist" is saved at ;
"/Documents/ (_Application_Support_)/ Attributes/ Documents/ FolderName/ FileName.plist"

1. Connect your iPhone to a Mac or PC with a USB cable.
2. On a Mac or PC, transfer the bookmarks file ".plist" onto the Mac or PC, by using iTunes or iPhone access apps as well as the text file ".txt".
You can transfer the whole of the "(_Application_Support_)" folder including the lower sub-folders onto a Mac or PC.
If you want to save a text file and a bookmarks file together on a Mac or PC, open "(_Application_Support_)", "Attributes", and "Documents" folders manually one by one in the Finder. Then select the bookmarks file ".plist" that has the same name as the text file, and move it out.

3. Connect another iPhone to a Mac or PC.
4. On a Mac or PC, transfer both the transferred files ".txt" and ".plist" into another iText Pad within "Documents" folder in the root.
5. Then you can move the transferred text file into any sub-folder in iText Pad, as long as a text file "FileName.txt" and a bookmarks file "FileName.plist" have been transferred together within the same hierarchy's folder.
