We've created the following How to guides to using Memorize·It. If you don't find what you are looking for here, it is probably in the manual. If you have ideas for other how to topics, or questions, please e-mail us.
Categories are very important and should be created for each deck. This allows having multiple categories within each file and creates a simple filing system, e.g., Chapter 1, Chapter 2, or Multiplication Table 1x, Multiplication Table 2x, or Spanish 1 Living Room, Spanish 1 Kitchen, etc.
You can create, edit (change) or remove the categories under Deck\Edit Categories. The Edit Categories Window shows Card Categories, with a rectangular box under it, and any created categories will be in the box. You will also see four buttons: New, Edit, Delete and Ok. To create a category, press the New button, and beside Category Name type in your category. Press the Ok button and you should see your category in the rectangular box under Card Categories. You can create many categories. If you want to edit (change) one of the created categories, highlight the category you want changed, press the Edit button, then make the change, and press Ok. If you want to delete one of the categories, highlight the category you want deleted, and press Delete.
You can assign categories to deck cards in two ways:
1.As you create a card (or
edit a card) in the Edit Window by clicking on the Title button. This
brings up the Card Information Window where you can title the card,
and add or change a category.
You will be given a choice to add a Subject to a deck when you save the file. If you give a deck a subject, you can later open multiple decks simultaneously with the File\Browse Decks menu item. You then can choose between subjects, categories and card titles.
To effectively use the Multi-Deck Browser, you have to customize your interaction with Memorize·It. To change which folders are included in the browse decks, you select File\Preferences and type the path to the folder in the Browser Search Path. For example, if you had two folders with cards: C:\memorize\spanish and C:\memorize\french, you could browse both subjects by using the Browse Search Path of: C:\memorize\spanish;C:\memorize\french. Just remember you have to separate each folder with the ;. All the decks in each folder listed will be included in the File\Browse Decks menu item.
All major word processing applications now support Rich Text Format (RTF) which is a textual description of a word processing file. Memorize·It does not support all RTF keywords, just the ones that are relevant in creating flashcards. The main reason to use RTF is to take advantage of the formatted text, with multiple type fonts, which can be imported into the flashcards. All RTF identifiers (key words) can be reviewed under Rich Text Format (RTF) Documentation.
The RTF identifiers are easy to use. The following import RTF file was created to show a typical example. It should be noted that all items in parenthesis are used as helpful information for the beginner and should not be used in an import file.
