Hopefully an easy question--can you highlight text inside a "notes" tab?  It would be very nice to be able to manipulate the notes so internally they can arranged a bit better (especially for longer notes).  Thanks.

Sorry; that feature is not available right now.

As Fred noted, that feature isn't available.  What you can do is to change fonts, increase font size, change font color, bold or italicize which would call attention to that text.

You can drag-drop your notes to re-arrange them. Is that what you had in mind?

change font color

I don't know of any way to change the font color of the notes in my note file.  Is this possible?

You can't change the font color from within Logos, but if you paste coloured text into Logos the colour is retained. So if you really want colour, paste your note into Word, apply the colouring, then copy/paste it back.

Could you also apply background colors in WORD and have them retained?  If you can do that, you have most of highlighting already.

I almost had you spelling color correctly and then you went back to your old English ways.

When will you Brits learn to spell correctly?  Smile

Others have answered this already, but since you asked me directly, I'll confirm that you need to copy and paste the pre-formatted text.  When I originally posted my reply I was still thinking of the capabilities of L3 which I only recently began to leave behind.  Obviously, it still isn't ready for prime time.

No Pasting in Word data into notes REMOVES all colour, it was removed in 4.0c If I recall correctly, and has never been reinstated
