Find and replace text in an annotation

You can search your annotations to find (or find and replace) a word or phrase.

For example, while you are exploring your sources you might use annotations to record ideas that you want to investigate further, you can then search for all annotations which contain the word 'idea'.

Refer to Find and replace text for detailed instructions on find and replace.
