Hello

Is there a way to highlight only a part of a composed word in Hebrew.

For example, Logos recognize that the word is composed of three parts. And i would like to color only the part that i want. (like the red line i add on the screenshot with paint). For the moment if i do a visual filter on this part and chose a highlight, it paints the complete word (orange).

Thanks

Yann

Check your settings Tools-->Program Settings

You can also hold down the Alt key while selecting to temporarily change your text selection mode.

Thank you for your answers, yet, this does not work with Hebrew words :'( … I just check with greek, it is fine. But Hebrew will highlight the complete word. A Bug ?

Thank you

I tested it on a Hebrew word before I gave the answer; it worked for me on Win 10. Are you on a PC or a MAC?

If the resource you're using is an interlinear, then I think you will be restricted to highlighting a complete interlinear cell at a time. Which resource are you using?

I spoke too Fast.

In fact it depends on the word :

For example in Psalms 1:1 

It works if i would want to highlight a part of  הָלַךְ֮

It does not work If i want to highlight אִ֗ישׁ in הָאִ֗ישׁ

I can confirm this problem.

For those of us who work in Hebrew primarily, it would be really nice for the highlight/annotations to function correctly/reliably.

I started a thread about this here March 5, 2020, where I posted an animated gif demonstrating the problem (I also got the similar responses to set character selection).  I think the dev. team may not be fully aware of what exactly the bug is since it's intermittent but seems to work ok for Mac folks. Here's a re-post of the animated gif I uploaded to the other thread that demonstrates this bug (you need to click the gif for the video to start).  I'm in BHS on windows 10.

I'm really really really hoping this bug is being worked because I very often need to annotate just one letter in a word and when I look up scriptures on the fly I can usually be reminded about the content of my note based on the correct letter being highlighted with a certain style so I don't have to loose time devotion/study .  I was a bit sad to see this was reported already in Oct. 2019 and we still have this bug in July 2, 2020.  Hebrew is important and highlighting/annotating is important. Sometimes I have 3 annotations on a single word reminding me of various things (Ugaritic similarity, a prefix being used instrumentally, and borrowed suffix from elsewhere in the clause as an example). The highlights just pile up on each other on the word and become cumbersome to pick apart especially if reading on a phone/tablet.

I love logos and find it immeasurably useful; I'm very hopeful this bug will be considered important and fixed soon as my annotations of scripture continue to grow and grow and I'd rather they be more perfect for when I go through on other occasions.

[Andrew said he linked the bug report also to my post so this is just in case someone misses this and to give moral support to Mr. Parodi, the op]

Dev team can you please consider escalating the severity consideration of the bug since highlighting/annotations are one of the big selling points of Logos and really should work in Hebrew; the language of 70% of the bible.
