I regularly make notes in the Android app, which then show under "Emphasis Markup" on my desktop. However, these are linked to a specific translation. Partly because I use a Bible in two languages, I use different translations, but would really like to be able to see all my notes independent of the translation I was using at the time. Is this possible, and if so, how?

Would be grateful for some help on this.

Thanks,

Mark

I haven't played around much with the Android app, as I only have a Kindle Fire, and only use it to read (not mark up) Logos resources - usually just a Bible. (Frankly, I don't find the app on the Kindle Fire very easy to use for much more than simple reading. YMMV) So I can't say what's possible or not on the Android app regarding annotations.

However, in the desktop app, we can make notes tie to content or a reference. Only those tied to a reference will show up in other resources that are tagged with references (Bibles and Commentaries, e.g.). It may not be possible to do this in the Android app (I've never tried), but this is how notes work in Logos 4/5 (and Libronix, BTW).

Thanks for the quick reply.

I'm using Logos 5 on the desktop. How can I see / how can I change the setting "tie to content" of "tie to reference"?

The only way I know of is to create a new note tied to the reference and copy/paste the content from one note to the next.

I'm sure that's not what you wanted to hear. It would be wonderful if there was a way to automate this. As of now there isn't (that I know of).

I need to test this further. When I add a note on the desktop ("Add a note to Emphasis Markup") I see it in the tab "Emphasis Markup" with all the notes I made on the Android, but then those ones entered on the desktop are visible in all translations, so obviously tied to a reference, but I cannot see where I indicate this. However, any note I make on the Android is automatically "tie to content" without being given the choice as far as I can see.

when you right click on a word / passage on the desktop you will see something like the screenshot below

On the right-hand side of the menu you can see the options to create a note either by selection or reference.

In the note dialog box there is a checkbox "Attach to Verse" near the top of the panel. Checking this will create a note by reference, leaving it unchecked will use selection.
