It is a good resource, but it seems the entire commentary is 'popularly highlighted' for me.

That's really OTT, and a very good reason that I don't have the "Popular highlights" Visual filter ticked!

Faithlife need to look at this overuse.

EDIT: the John 1-11 volume is bad enough

The reason those two are 'popularly highlighted' is that they are the main required reading for the very popular mobileEd course on the Johannine works by Ben Witherington. Nevertheless Logos should use this to gauge/calibrate the popular highlights tool.

That's crazy. A bunch of people must have accidentally selected large chunks of text and highlighted them and not known how to undo it (there's no Undo for highlighting so you have to delete the highlighting, and it's not immediately obvious how to do this).

The course itself highlights all the assigned readings.

I would like to highlight for you the absurdity of it all.

Wow. Ok. I guess I will simply turn off the feature for now. So it's not a bug?

Many  courses that have been updated, instead of the yellow highlights, it is a blue line on the left hand margin.  That is a lot easier on the eyes.

That wasn't the course needing to update, but a bug in delivering the custom highlighting style together with the note file(s) that used it.

However, it seems these count as highlights of the users who have a copy of it, and thus the "popular highlight" kicks in (grey, dotted underline) - or some have followed suite and highlighted all of it,  maybe with a green margin or whatever.

Uh-oh. Wayne Grudem's ST is showing the same thing...

Unfortunately, "Popular Highlights" quickly becomes meaningless if all these books that are included as reading for courses show the entire book as being highlighted for the purpose of the tool.

i am looking at my copy of Grudem on the iPad and only my personal highlights show.  I believe I turned this off on my computer though by unchecking something called Community highlights Or something similar.

Thanks Anne. I know that I can turn off 'popular highlights'. But this shouldn't be necessary. As mentioned above, it would perhaps be better for Logos to incorporate a different method for highlighting required reading for Mobile Ed courses.

We found and fixed the bug that was causing too many popular highlights to appear in that resource. Please let me know if you spot any more issues with the feature.

It appears to be fixed in the NAC John volumes that I have.

We discovered a bug in our document duplication code that led to sections of resources being considered far more popular than they actually were. After fixing the bug, I recompiled the highlights for all our current resources. 

If there are any other places where Popular Highlights look like they're off, please let us know.
