How To… Using the Highlighter, Bookmarks, and Notes on Brain Hive

Welcome to this week’s #TechTipThursday! With the Brain Hive eReader, you have the option to highlight passages, create bookmarks, and create notes. This week, we’ll show you how to create all three of them.


Open any eBook in the Brain Hive eReader. On the top bar, left-hand side, select the Highlighter icon to activate it.

Holding down the left mouse button, move the mouse cursor over the text you wish to highlight and then let go of the mouse button. A prompt will then appear allowing you to Save Highlight.

Repeat this process until you have all the passages highlighted that you wish and then select the highlighter icon from the top bar on the left hand side again to deactivate the highlighter.

To view all saved highlights in this title, select the highlighter icon on the bottom tool bar.  This will open and display all highlights in this title.

Bookmarks within the Brain Hive eReader allow you to mark a page and leave a quick note at the same time to remind you why you bookmarked the page.

To begin, select the Bookmark icon from the top tool bar in the eReader, then choose the option to Create New Bookmark.

On the window that comes up, you can bookmark and leave a comment on both pages (if you are using double page view). To bookmark only one of the pages, un-check the box on the one that you do not wish to bookmark. Select Save when you are done.

If a page has a bookmark, you will see a red ribbon on the top of it as shown below.
