I often highlight as a read through my Bible reading plan.  I am getting used to the idea of using clippings, which seems like a simple way of collecting verses on a particular topic.  I also enjoy highlighting as a read.  One struggle I have though is that I often switch through versions just to get different perspectives.  I would like to setup Logos so that if I highlight John 3:16 in the NRSV when I open the ESV the verse will still be highlighted.  Is there a way to do this?

Not exactly John, not in a permanent way. 

Sympathetic highlighting will do that in a "live" fashion though.

If you'll open your two bibles side by side and highlight one of them with a cursor drag, the second will show a sympathetic highlight.  But cross version markup is not part of the current offering.

Yes, it was my suggestion some time ago, however I realize with the ability to highlight just one word or any fraction of the text, It is impossible to keep it in more than one resource. It would have to be a special type of highlighting, where it would be possible to do that just in the Bible and only whole verse. Yes, it might be useful. I doubt however it would be a great priority in Logos these days :-)

Of course as I think about this and what Bohuslav wrote, I realize that if the highlighting in bibles was tied not to the surface text but to the underlying interlinear data - that permanent sympathetic highlighting would be an "easy" option.  No?

This is a feature I would really like to see.  I think the key to being able to make it show up in multiple versions is, as Tom has said, the reverse interlinear text and the wonderful new sympathetic highlighting feature.  Seems like an option to make this kind of highlighting permanent, perhaps as a visual markup, would be a logical and doable next step.  If I could do this, I would be more inclined to use Logos for my personal daily devotional reading (where I often underline), and I think I would generally use highlighting a lot more often.  I just don't like the idea of all the work I put into highlighting being tied to one particular version.

This is my first post, and I'd just like to say a big "thank you" to the Logos team for making such a wonderful tool - Logos 4.  This version really is impressive, and I think I'll use it more than I did version 3.  I think it's even straight-forward enough compared to the last version that I can get my wife to try it out...
