I hope this hasn't already been addressed, but I couldn't find where it was. At some point out of memory I "highlighted" text in the same resource sometimes as notes and sometimes as highlights. Both are, of course, anchored to a Text Range. However, viewing them in the left panel of the resource requires choosing one or the other. I'd like to convert the notes to highlights so I can scroll through them in the left panel of the resource without having to switch between notes and highlights. I can easily enough change them one by one, but it's a bit tedious. Is there a way to batch convert them?

The short answer is no. However, you do have a couple of options. You could bulk edit the desired notes and highlights and store them all in one notebook. This would enable you view both the notes and the highlights when that notebook is selected. The easiest option however is not to select notes or highlights in the facets menu. Instead select the resource you want to view. This will filter both notes and highlights in that resource, sorted however you have it set to sort.

Thanks for the good ideas. I also realized that if I open the resource and then in the facet menu in the left pane select 'text range' (above screen shot), I can scroll through both notes and highlights in the order they appear in the resource.
