1. On the Projects screen, click New project.
2. On the Create a New Project screen that pops up, enter a name for your project and select the appropriate citation style and level. Click Submit. NOTE: Once you create a project, you will be able to switch seamlessly between styles and levels. So what you set up now can be changed later with one click.
3. The Dashboard screen appears. The Dashboard organizes your work environment for effective research. You can see assignments, create to-do lists, submit work, and act on feedback from teachers in an organized way, and all in one place.
5. On the Sources screen, click New Source and select the best match for your source from the choices given. The selections under "What is it" is dependent on what you select for "Where is it?"
7. Click Continue to go to the next screen.
1. Click Notecards in the navigation bar at top.
3. Input notes about your source.
TIP: Once you've created multiple notecards, you can pile them. Drag a notecard and drop it on another notecard to create a new pile, or use the Manage pile option above the tabletop to manage existing and create new piles with selected notecards. Notecard piles become the basis of organization within the Outline panel next to the Notecard Tabletop.
The right panel of the Notecards screen is reserved for your outline. The outline panel can be minimized if you aren’t using or working on an outline and you would like additional space to manipulate your notecards on the tabletop. Click the small arrow button in the top-right corner to minimize the panel or to show it again.
Alternatively, if you need more space for the outline, there is a gray “handle” between the tabletop and outline panels that can be dragged left and right to devote more or less horizontal space to the outline. This can be useful if you are writing longer phrases as your outline topic titles, rather than just keywords.
This article covers the following topics:
How to create items in the outline
How to reorder outline topics
How to delete a topic from the outline
How to link notecards to topics in the outline
How to export or print the outline
When you begin a new outline, you’ll find a sample topic and subtopic already in place.
You can delete these default items if you wish. Or, to edit these existing items, simply double-click or right-click on the title (Topic or Subtopic) in the outline, (or on an iPad, long-press the title and select the option to edit the title from the menu).
The edit button can be used also to modify the topic name. Select the topic first then click the edit button.
When you finish editing, either press "Enter" or click outside of the edit box to save the changes.
As you are creating your outline, you will be creating both “siblings” and “children” of existing outline items. Siblings of item “A” would be “B”, “C, “D”, etc. – they are at the same indentation level and are subtopics of the same “parent” topic in the outline. Children of item “A” would be “1”, “2”, “3”, “4”, etc. – they are subtopics of item “A”, indented right.
To add a subtopic under an existing topic (e.g., add subtopic “1” under topic “A”), select the topic and then do one of the following:
Click the green button with the "+" label.
Right-click (or long-press on an iPad) on the topic and select Add subtopic (child) from the menu.
Click the down arrow on the green button and select Add subtopic (child).
To add a topic at the same level as an existing topic (e.g., add topic “B” under topic “A”), select the existing topic and do one of the following:
Press “Enter" or "Return" (this is a keyboard shortcut).
Right-click (or long-press on an iPad) on the topic and select Add topic (sibling) from the menu.
Click the down arrow on the green button and select
Add topic (sibling).
Any topic (along with its subtopics) can be dragged to another location in the outline. You can either drag the topic with your mouse or use the arrows at the top.
Try the following ways to move a topic:
Drag a topic onto another topic to make the first a subtopic of the second.
Drag a topic and release it below an existing topic (you will see a blue line representing where the topic is about to be dropped). The first topic will become a sibling topic to the second. You can use this method to reorder subtopics under a single parent topic.
Use the arrows to move topics and subtopics down, up, forward, or back. If a topic or a subtopic cannot move, NoodleTools will let you know.
To remove a topic from the outline, select it and right-click Delete (long-press on an iPad) or click the trash can in the menu.
Deleting a topic in your outline will delete all of the subtopics under that topic, so please do this carefully!
A powerful feature of the outline in NoodleTools is that you can link notecards to topics in your outline. Later, you can begin writing a draft of your essay by exporting your outline and notecards to a word processing program. You can also print your outline with your notecards included (see “
How to export or print your outline” below ).
To begin, drag-and-drop a notecard from either the Notecard Tabletop view or the Notecard Detail view (using the drag handle in the upper-right corner of a view-selected notecard) onto a topic in your outline. The Detail view is below:
If you want to move an entire notecard pile into an outline topic, you can also do that from the Notecard Tabletop view. Dragging a notecard pile into the outline will add all of the notecards within that pile to the topic in your outline.
Moving a notecard into your outline does not remove it from the Tabletop or Detail views; it only associates the notecard with the topic in the outline. To distinguish notecards from topics and subtopics, notecards are represented by a small notecard icon, as shown below:
On the Notecard Tabletop, notecards that are linked to at least one outline topic are marked with a checkmark in the upper left, as seen below:
Once a notecard is associated with an item in the outline, you can move it around in the outline by dragging it onto a different topic in the outline. Instead of making a copy of a notecard, notecards can be added to the outline more than once, placed under different topics.
To remove it from the outline, drag the notecard out of the outline back onto the tabletop area (or select it and click Delete).
Double-clicking a notecard in the outline will open the notecard for editing.
You can export and print your outline with or without notecards. NoodleTools supports the following options:
Export as Web page: Export as an HTML web page that can be opened in a browser.
Export to Google Docs: Export to a new Google Doc
Export to Word Online: Export to a new Word Online document (This option appears only if you are authenticated via Office 365.)
Export to Word: Export as a .docx file that can be opened with Microsoft Word.
Export to RTF: Export as a .rtf file that can be opened from Word or any other word processing program that supports RTF.
