9.  Give your new QuickMark a title and use the drop down menu to select the QuickMark set you wish to add your QuickMark to.  Once you have done this, click on Save.  Note that once you have saved a comment as a QuickMark you cannot edit it directly through the comment in the paper.  Any edits to QuickMarks made through the main QuickMark editor will result in the edit being visible in all papers where the QuickMark has been used.
