I am very impressed by the increased speed in Logos 8, but the loss of all my careful notes in the Greek and Hebrew text across my reverse interlinears is not good! I've been digging fruitlessly through the new menus to try to turn back on the "corresponding notes" feature, and can't seem to fix this. Is this a bug? 

The other thing is that even though you can anchor a note to a factbook entry now, there is no place on the factbook where the note shows up, nor in the Bible where the factbook would be connected. Ie:

I tried the workflow feature on a person study; I chose to experiment with the judge Deborah. I added a note about Deborah, and it doesn't appear anywhere other than the notebook itself. I assumed that either the factbook entry for Deborah, or the passages in Judges which mention Deborah, would be tagged with my note, but this doesn't appear to be working. 

I really need my corresponding notes back, as I switched over to adding anchors exclusively to original language words, and now my English and Spanish Bibles are competely unannotated! Not cool!

Isn't it in the visual filters menu?

I need to experiment a bit but basically the behavior you are seeing it expected. I'm trying unsuccessfully to remember where it is visible ...

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

It's not a bug, but it is a known issue. Faithlife didn't get time to rewrite the code after upgrading the Notes tool. They're on it, though, and hopefully it will be back soon. (See the bottom of the FAQ: https://www.logos.com/faq/notes).

In the meantime, you can switch back to the old system: https://support.logos.com/hc/en-us/articles/360018336332, which I presume will get Corresponding Notes back working.

Alright, well I'm glad to know that they are working on it. It is something that I use very heavily, so I might need to return to the older version...

I checked the visual filters, and it is not one of the options. It sounds like something that didn't make the update.
