I'm not sure this is possible but I figured it wouldn't hurt to ask.  Big Smile

In my physical Bible, I do lots of underlining with different colors.  On some words, phrases, and passages, I may have multiple markups that include multiple colored underlines.  In Logos, I have created my own palette with many different styles.  For example, I have one underlined style I used for attributes of God, another style for faith, etc.  I have attempted to mark my Logos Bible to match my physical Bible but am only able to see one underlined style at a time.  I place my notes/highlights in the same note file per book (i.e. one for Genesis, one for Exodus, etc.).  I know I could create different styles to achieve this (i.e. underline for faith, highlight for attributes of God, etc.).  But, I'd like to be able to match my Logos Bible with my physical Bible.  So, is there a way to see multiple underlines that have been done on the same word, phrase, and passage(s)?  If so, how have you been able to do this?

Thank you and Lord bless!

Sorry!  I should have entitled this thread Multiple "underlines".  LOL

Have you looked at the inductive highlighting styles? I don't think the normal underline is going to work… you would only see one underline (underline on top of underline)… 

I think you will need to explain more or take a photo of your bible. How do you distinguish the various underlines?

I distinguish the various underlines in my physical Bible using different colors to represent different meanings.  I was thinking that the inductive highlighting was the only way I could do this in L5.  I was hoping I could replicate what I did in my physical Bible so I would not have to have different styles, one different in my physical Bible and another one in L5.

That's interesting you should ask.

I use both Libronix3 and Logos5. But I do all my highlighting in L3 since I can combine the colors, underlines and so forth.

That way by a glance the mixture has quick meaning. Essentially what you're describing.

My guess, using Logos4/5 you'll need a combination of background, borders, underlines, etc. as Alabama notes (inductive as an example).

Yep ... L3 has a nice mixture of underlines, with differing shapes, colors, etc, all stackable on the same word.  I like the background color combos too.

I'd like to see that L3 feature implemented in L5.

Visual Filter Highlighting can combine styles for a word, which could also be done manually.  For example, Rejoice in Philippians 4:4 has Present Tense (pink background), Active Voice (ax image superscript after), Imperative Mood (bold red font with yellow glow), and Plural (wavy blue line above):

Theoretically you should be able to do something similar, though it depends on how many  styles you have in your Bible, how much you're willing to adapt to Logos' [current] restrictions, and how good eyes you have. You could create something like the following styles:

  1. Triple yellow Underline 
  2. Double red Underline 
  3. Single blue Underline 
  4. Triple orange Bottom Border
  5. Double light green Bottom Border
  6. Single purple Bottom Border

You'd have to make sure to always apply the triple before the double, and the double before the single. 

You could also experiment with e g wavy or dashed lines on top of solid, to get even more alternatives.

However, that is currently only theory. In practice I found a couple of bugs that make most of this impossible for the moment: BUGS: Underline applied as Bottom Border / Second highlight applied behind first Crying
