How do I create an entry?
To make a journal entry, select the corresponding date by clicking on a date in the calendar in the upper left corner of the screen:
Then type in your entry in the large white box at the bottom of the screen.
As you make entries, a “listing box” will appear at the top of the screen with short labels for each date where you made a journal entry. The label will include the date as well as the first few words of the entry its self. If you click on one of these labels, you will immediately jump to the corresponding date and entry of the label.

How do I copy or paste?
Sometimes you might wish to copy some words in one entry and paste them into another. For example, if you began to make your entry and then realized you had been typing in the wrong day.
To copy, hold down your left mouse button and highlight the words you wish to copy. Once you’ve highlighted the words you want to copy, press the “Control” (Ctrl) key on your keyboard while also simultaneously pressing the key for the letter “C”. This copies the text.
To paste, put your cursor where you want to paste the text by clicking in the appropriate date’s entry. Then press the “Control” key while also simultaneously pressing the key for the letter “V” and the computer will paste your text.
How do I print a journal report and what does it look like?
Select the date range by clicking on the blue dates next to “From” and “To”. Every entry within the date range specified will be printed.
Next, you can enter a name by typing the name in the field for “Author”.
Finally, you can "View" your document, "Print" your document, or export your document as a PDF or Word document by clicking on the corresponding buttons.
