Hey, why can i only read 7.5 lines of my notes at a time when editing, which is like just 30% of my screen. The rest of the space is taken up by white space an note colors. Can’t I hide all this nonsense and actu see my note? It’s not a font-size issue. I’d love to edit more on my phone but the fact that I can’t see what I’ve written more than 2 sentences ago makes it really annoying. Outlines are especially difficult.

I don’t see the same white space. What version of the app are you running?

As is mine, please post a screenshot of the note you are editing as seen in the Notes Tool.

I'm trying to understand the difference in what we are seeing.

What model iPhone do you have? What version of iOS?

And what version of Logos do you have on the desktop?

This is a screen shot of just a random file. The font, I think, is 11pt (as I recall from my desktop version). Again, there's just so much space being used from the "Cancel" line down to the title and from the blank space above "style" down to the bottom. Why does there have to be so much real estate used for what's essentially 3 bits of information (cancel or done / style / delete). The "document" option is completely unnecessary, as that' already listed on the hidden menu at the bottom of the screen. 30% of my screen can be used for editing and the rest is just nonsense options that could easily be hidden. I just want to understand why, and if they can actually be hidden. 

I'm using a iPhone 6 with iOS 12.1.4

The fact that you show "Document" at the bottom shows you are still running the "old style" - Logos 7 - notes system whereas my screenshot is from using the new style system.

So it looks as though it is a lot better using the new system and I doubt if anything will be done to change things in the old one.

To move to the new system would involve upgrading to Logos 8 - available for free at https://www.logos.com/product/168880/logos-8-basic - on the desktop but please note that some notes features don't currently work in the new system.

That's what I think is going on - hopefully someone from Faithlife will be able to comment further.

Hey, thanks. I really appreciate it. Knowing that I can't win will help me not to fight it, ha. I'll look into the upgrade option!

Be careful because the newer system has fewer features but will eventually get updated to include most if not all of the old system's features.
