Was trying to find a workaround for Multiple highlights on a word, phrase, or passage(s).

 

BUG 1) Selected both Underline and Bottom Border:

Result: both are applied in the Bottom Border position:

(As a result of this bug, all my older Underlines are now Bottom Borders instead.)

 

BUG 2) Created triple orange, double light green and single purple Bottom Border styles, and applied them in that order to the same selection. Result as expected:

But:

Created triple yellow, double red and single blue Underline styles, and applied them in that order to the same selection. Result: not only do they show up in the wrong position (bug 1), but the double red refuses to show up on top of the yellow:

The logic of this bug seems mysterious to say the least:

  • Edited the double red Underline to a double brown Underline: still hidden.
  • Edited the double red Underline to a double red Bottom Border: still hidden.
  • Edited the double red Underline to a double blue Bottom Border: showed up as it should, but now the single purple Bottom Border wouldn't show instead (but a black one would). 

(Let me guess: everyone thinking of recreating this now wishes we could share Highlighting palettes.Big Smile)

 

And please don't forget the much older Highlighting bugs in DESIGN ERROR: Uneven application of highlighting and Bugs: Logos 4.5b Beta 7 Highlighting: Font Style Choices plus Bordering Lines.

EDIT: I updated the first of these older threads, but I can't update the beta one, which would normally be the one most likely to be first seen by Logos, because that forum is now locked.Crying

I'm unable to replicate this. How are you applying the highlight to the text?

I can replicate this. In windows all three colors show up in the order selected from the highlight panel. I'll check to see if there is an open case about it, and if not add one.

This has been reported previously, and there is currently an active case. (Edit: Link to thread removed since the report is in a beta forum, so not everyone will have access to view the thread.)

I will add a link to this thread to that case.

Thanks.

Tommy, your screenshot doesn't show Underline and Bottom Border, it shows Strikethrough and Bottom Border.

Sorry about that. The behavior is consistent on both platforms. I'm looking into it.
