I have been using my iPad to read commentaries and highlight sections of text which so far has synced very nicely with my laptop. However, this morning I touched a word in order to select it for highlighting and I only saw a popup magnification window. After several attempts, I noticed that the text was in a footnote and that the highlight feature was working fine in the main body of the commentary. Is there some way to highlight and note footnote sections on the iPad?

Hi Kevin,

You can't highlight the text within the footnote, but you can copy the text itself. So you could add it to your notes.

Sorry, no. In fact, there is no way to highlight footnotes in L4 either.

Good point… but: you can only do this in the footnote popup (click on the footnote number in the text itself). You can't do this with footnotes as show at the bottom of the screen.

Ok. I didn't know that. So it is not a feature missing on the iPad, it is simply not a feature available in Logos. Interesting. I'm reading the Greek New Testament Commentary and much of it is in footnotes, so this is going to be an annoyance.
