How can I search for a specific highlight style in iOS? For example, I have a specific highlight color I use for promises. I want to be able to search all the highlights in that style as a quick reference to my Bible promises. I finally found out how to do it on Logos 6, but it's not working when I do the same thing on the mobile app. Please help? I've attached screenshots so you can see what I'm talking about.

The mobile app isnt "L6" or "L5" and doesn't have all the same features. The ability to search for highlights is new to L6. We don't know if Logos will add this feature to the mobile apps or not.

I understand that, but this is a very basic feature that many other much simpler Bible apps have on iOS.

I know that the Laridian PocketBible and the Accordance Bible Software iOS Apps support this feature, just to name two.

Even the Kindle iOS app has this feature as well.

I'm not sure if it's doable in your situation, but a possible work-around would be to put your "promise" highlights in their own Notes document, then you could bring up those highlights by opening that document. I have done this in the past when I make a highlight and think it might be good to group it with similar passages. Just a suggestion.

Timothy, not every suggestion gets traction, or gets implemented.

Granted, but it's still a pity when foundational features like this are significant enough to be present in all the other reading apps I use, but not the one that I paid the most for. Logos mobile is still excellent, but I in the few years that I've used it, It doesn't seem to have been advanced nearly as rapidly as the desktop software. Perhaps I'm just unfamiliar with any major improvements.

"Foundational" features for you, aren't "foundational" for me. One feature that has been consistently requested is smooth scrolling. It isnt a "foundational" feature to me, but it is for many users. I know that the Devs worked hard to bring it to this point. 

The highlighting capibilities really are second to none. 

The mobile app isnt a replacement for the desktop app.
