When I change the default font setting for notes, it also changes for Clippings. But Clippings aren't notes...they are clippings. In other words, I generate the content of notes, but the content of clippings comes from the original resource. The Clippings should look like the original; the font should be the same as the one for resources.

Would it be plausible to either have a separate default font setting for Clippings, or to simply have the Notes font setting affect Notes only and have the Clippings font default to the Resource font?

My thanks to the various MVPs. Without them Logos would have died early. They were the only real help available.

Faithlife Corp. owes the MVPs free resources for life.

Hi Doc,

While I do agree with you that it would be nice if what we copy into clippings would look like the original, I would like Faithlife to merge clippings and notes together like they did with highlighting and notes.  This is one reason why I think Logos/Verbum has such a large learning curve - too many sub-systems.

And I agree with Tom Smile.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

I see your point but I am not sure how I feel about it being the default resource font.  But I do agree it should not be tied to Notes settings.
