After years of using Bible Explorer than an early version of Word search, I have made the switch to Logos. One feature in Word search a used a lot was create a new desktop which basically has no highlights notes etc. it is a new study.  I like to do a topic research or a book study like proverbs save it as it's own desktop. Over the years I did multiple studies of Proverbs and would save each, I noticed God spoke to me differently each study and my notes were different.  I have not figured out how to do this in Logos, seems once a bible version is highlighted they go across everything you do even new workflows.  I know you can delete them but I don't want to do that just save that study and start a new one with no highlights. Any suggestions

Hi Ronald,

One approach with Logos 8 would be to make Notebooks for each new Layout.  Capture your thoughts, insights, discoveries, etc. in a note/highlight as you have been doing, and then file the note under a notebook.  That's step one.  Here's a page from Logos with screenshots, etc: https://blog.logos.com/2018/12/learn-to-maximize-the-new-notes-tool-in-logos-8/ .

The next step will be to use the Visual Filters menu on the Bible/resource you're working with.  It's an icon on the resource toolbar that looks like three circles in a triangular arrangement.  If you drop down the VF menu, you can then scroll down to the Notes and Highlights section to enable/disable the display of whichever notebooks you like.  Give it a try and let us know if this approach will work for you.
