I've requested this a few times...maybe just in the wrong spot. So I'm going to try here where the devs are more likely to see: Please add numbers to the keyboard shortcut option list. 

I love to follow an authors logic by numbering coordinate points. If an author is making a 6 point argument over a few pages, it is helpful look for each one of those examples and visually identify them. I have found my numbering markup to be incredibly helpful for this, but it would be even more helpful if I could use the numbers on my keyboard as keyboard shortcuts to access the markups. Currently only the letters are available as shortcut keys. 

You can even include my numbering markups for other people to use as well. They have proven very helpful.

Numerical shortcuts for highlighting have been implemented in Beta 2 for both 4.6b and 5.0b.

Excellent - I use numeric highlights all the time and this is much more logical than F,G,H,I,J!!

Jacob, 

I thought you or someone else once shared the image files (numbers 1-9), but couldn't find a thread. They seem not to be part of an existing palette in current beta.

Are you willing to upload these or give a hint as to where to locate them? Thank you!

Those circles that I use in my markups are generated automatically by Logos. It is simply the text of the number with a capsule around it. Here is a screenshot of my markup creation:

Here is what it looks like with the numbered shortcut keys applied to my markup palette.

I had made my own, but thank you Jacob for the request AND thank you Logos for listening/implementing!

Thanks a lot, Jacob! I wasn't aware of the "capsule" thing, this is really cool.

This is great. Thank you. Gracias. Muchas Gracias.

Now if we can only search these highlights without having the books opened where they are found. OK, let me explain. Sometimes I'm reading about 10 books and I find myself highlighting almost all of them. Time comes and times go. I forget what I highlighted and in what books. So I would like to see a database of all my highlights or be able to search them without having the books highlighted opened. Just a straight search for all colored highlights. The search should give me the name of the book and the date it was made and if I added a 'note'.

Am I asking too much? I hope I am not. However, if this feature is already in L5, please forgive my ignorance, but someone please tell me how to search HL when books are closed!

Blessings.

Good news, Al .You can already do this by running a basic search, searching your entire library, and choosing the "highlighter pens" option rather than "all text." It is located in the drop down when you click "all text" though you may have to scroll a little. It is under the "search fields" options. You can also search your entire library for emphasis markups and your personal palette.

This is true, you can search for highlights, but you'd better have some specific text you are searching for. If you try to search for * (wildcard) to match any text, might as well go to bed and leave it running. It can take a couple of hours. The current incarnation of Logos's search implementation (as of Logos 4) was not designed to be fast for wildcard searching. It's super fast for other stuff, but at the expense of wildcards. It's somewhat faster to search for a*, b*, c*, ...

You're right, but it seems that what Al described above would be accomplished by simply opening the note file he put his highlights in - they are sorted (and sortable) by date and will show the books where the highlighting was made without it being open.

Wonderful.  I am running out of filters.

This is terrific.  I just learned about this feature today and I was thrilled (I too have made this suggestion in order to trace an argument).  I'm also glad that Logos made the system customizable so that I can configure these markings the way I want to.  Bravo!  Thanks Logos. 

For me, however, rather than having a different color for each number, I've chosen to keep them the same color and use a different code for various notes.  For instance, all blue numbers might be for tracing a the argument.  Brown numbers might number various subordinators within a text (or discourse markers).  You could use a third color set for theological concepts in a particular text. I only lack keyboard shortcuts for the different systems, but that's a minor issue in my opinion.

Yes, I've tried it. It works well. I still need to brush up on this type of research, being that it's a little clunky, at least for me. But it will do well for now.
I did a search but I did not get the expected output. But I will continue to refine my skills. Let's see how it will work out. I've done search with online bibles with highlighting with only two steps. But hoping that L5 will make it more smoother in the future.
Thank you all of you for your input. I have more questions but I will perfect this skill first, then ask later.

Blessings.
