    1. We're still refining the presentation, but for now you can tell a passage was concatenated by the ellipsis (...) joining the non-adjacent strings of text.
    2. You can continue concatenating indefinitely (i.e., .c3, .c4, ...)
    3. Every time you use the note .c1, you start a new series of concatenation.
    4. Rather than capture that extraneous content, use the concatenate action tag to highlight and note the first sentence .c1 and the last sentence .c2.

      To concatenate multiple highlights simply add .c<number in sequence>, for the first highlight you would use .c1, for the second, .c2.

    1. In practice, you might not want to type out the full word .probability because typing without a keyboard can be frustrating. To help you type less, we created a shorthand feature. In the example above, you could note the passage .prob instead of .probability. The highlight would initially be tagged prob, but once you rename the shorthand a single time, Readwise will thereafter be trained to automatically convert to all .prob tags to .probability.

      Readwise does tag expansion, use a shorthand tag name such as .prob and rename that in Readwise to .probability and from then on Readwise will expand the tag name from there. If slashes are okay in a inline tag name this would make it easy to expand .question to .annotation/question.

    1. Simply highlight a passage and add a note beginning with a period (.) followed by a single word or abbreviation (with no spaces).

      To add a tag to an annotation simple use a . followed by a single word to create that tag like .productivity or .InProgress.

      I need to find out if / characters will break it.
