    What about in the Android app?

  • Billy Pratt says:

    This did not help at all. I need to know how to change the DEFAULT COLOR for the notes icon.

    • Monty says:

      Hi Billy,

      Currently there is not a way for you change the default color of the notes icon. However, you can change the icon for each note that you make. While you are in the note, simply tap the note icon and you can change it to another icon of your choosing. Let us know if you have any questions. Blessings!

  • Sadi Machado says:

    Paid by the bible, but have not received anything so far, I wonder what happened?

  • Hi

    I would love to be able to underline and do bold, italic, and color coding in the notes editor – mainly on Mac and iPad. Any way to do that?


    • Monty says:

      Hi Ralph,
      There’s not currently a way to do this, but we are working on this for a future update. We don’t have a specific release date as to when this would be made available.

  • Danny says:

    I love Olive Tree, and I have extensively used the note section. Just one thing I would recommend. It would really be nice if there were more options in the note editor. It would be great if I could format my notes in an outline format. Would this feature be possible sometime? Love everything else.


  • Glenn says:

    I’ve found a great resource with this application. Concerning notes: if I am going through my note collection and want the main window to go to the note reference – can I do that? I see that I can open a pop up window with the referenced verses but I would like the main window to go there. Any options for that?

    • Monty says:

      Hi Glenn,

      You can go full screen on your notes by tapping the “two arrows” button in the bottom right hand corner of the popup window.

  • J.P. says:

    Is there a way to change the font size of notes?

  • Cedric says:

    Several years and still not able to format text with bold, underline, or italics or bullets. When will this be possible?

    • Monty Galloway says:

      Hi Cedric,
      We don’t have a specific release date as to when this would be made available. Thank you for your patience.

  • Jon Williams says:

    I have been using this app for a couple weeks and was typing away on my notes just fine. However, when I opened my notes today, I realized the font size had shrunk so much it is difficult to read. I’m not sure how this happened, but is there a way to increase the font size of my notes? I’m using a windows laptop.

    • Cierra Klatt says:

      Hey, Jon! Here’s how: Click Bible Study (upper left corner), Bible+ Options, Colors and Fonts, and change the size.

    Hello, I have your Bible app for many years, first ios, than mac, than android, now PC and android.

    I’m always on the look for a new bible app, as great as your app is, but the note taking is so minimalistic. I would like to change color, bold, style import a picture or if not possible, that I could export single notes (no not copy and paste text), or export all the notes and structure them in another windows app myself, or print them ALL out with bible refernece, so I could work with it……. Oh please please dear people of God, you have the gift of structuring and administration if you were able and called to make such a wonderful programm I do not have that gift really I need the help of those like you who have it, so in the body we all help each other….. please please please give the notes feature a priority, I’m sure many people will thank you for that.
    I could only find other bible apps that were so complicated (for me) that I gave up again……
    Please bless the body of Christ with good note function…

    God bless you and Grace

    Can I use bold, italic and underline in notes.

  • J.P. Wiegand says:

    Is there a way to increase the size of the notes icon, without having to increase the text font size? At a comfortable reading size, it is nearly impossible to select the note icon. Or, is there another way to view the notes I’ve attached to a verse?

  • Hugo Marins says:

    I’ve been using notes for a while, but now I discovered that the notes created are vinculated only to the current version. If I choose another version, the notes are not shown, NOT EVEN IN THE RESOURCE GUIDE!!!!

    That’s absolutely disappointing and nonsense! Of course, notes refers to the verse itself; they are not intended to comment the translation (at least not not only it); they are used mainly to comment the content of the verse. So, why is it not shown if I change the version? I can’t find a reason!

    I’ve discovered that I’ve been losing my time creating notes that I’ll cound’t find when I need It.

    So if I use 10 version, if I want to find my notes I’ll have to open all of them, one by one? I can’t believe it.

    Please, you MUST change it in order to make it usable!


    • Cierra Klatt says:

      Hi, Hugo. Sounds to me like you must be making word-based highlights. If you would like for a highlight to transfer across translations, it needs to be attached to the entire verse. You can do this by tapping on the verse reference and then selecting highlight. For more information on highlighting on different devices, you can view our help articles here:
