The new notes tool is light years ahead of the old one but still has some annoying quirks.

// I might have a dozen or more notes on a verse and each one adds another tiny little icon to the side. They soon add up. It would be great if I could just attach a notebook with a single icon when there's multiple notes.

// Selecting an annotation and deleting it breaks other annotations that cross its path. Searching for the unwanted annotation in notes is a tedious task.

// I would love to see a display option to select multiple notes and have them stitched together in the display so they can be viewed like a single note. This allows you to make small individual notes but view them together when you want to see the big picture. Scrivener does this and it's really useful https://www.literatureandlatte.com/scrivener/features?os=macOS

I agree 100% with this. It's especially an issue with the new workflow tool. I'd like to see the note icons collapse together and then expand on a hover/click.

Thanks for the feedback.

We'd like to aggregate note icons eventually, so they don't take up as much space.

We're working on the design for this. We'd like to add this in the near future.

Thanks for the response and it's nice to know that your'e already thinking about this stuff. Hope that you'll also address the issue of deleting annotations  causing problems to other annotations in the surrounding text.

I totally agree, the new notes are so much better than the old ones - I feel like I can actually take notes of what I am reading in Logos for the first time, instead of moving back and forth from onenote.  Thank you so much for this feature and the work you are doing to continue to improve it.

Oh man, this would be great.
