Ability to bookmark a packet

Hi, I am looking to mark certain packets of interest in a sniffer trace - is this possible? So far I haven't uncovered such a feature within Omnipeek or discussion of it online.

You can add notes to individual packets with the annotation feature in OmniPeek. Here is an excerpt from the Help file:

You can add descriptive notes to individual packets. The notes are saved whenever the capture window is saved to any of the native OmniPeek capture file formats. See Save file formats.

NOTE: Adding notes to packets is not supported in the Packets view of an OmniEngine capture window.
To add a note:
1. Select the packet in either the Packets List or in its own Packet Decode window.

2. Click the Edit Note button. The Edit Note dialog appears.

3. Type the text for the note and click OK.

TIP: You can also make a note on the contents of a capture window by entering text in the Properties dialog. Click the Properties button to open the Properties dialog.
