There seems to be a problem with the highlighting feature, or I am using it wrong. when I highlight a word and tell it to highlight, it will. But when I highlight a compound word, it will not highlight. And it will not erase a highlight. Am I doing something wrong?

Both of these are working correctly for me.

Please post some screenshots illustrating the problem.

Cannot get a screen shot to post. But I am in Romans 9:30-33 and I selected and Highlighted "pursue" and it highlighted fine, but then I highlighted "have attained" and it will not highlight. And when I select "pursue" and his "erase" it will not erase the highlight. Sorry that I cannot do a screen shot.

When I follow these steps I get the expected results.

If you select "pursue", right-click, ensure the word is selected and choose "remove annotations" does that work?

I'm running on Windows - how about you?

I'm running on MacOS - how about you?

Also, for the avoidance of doubt, 'Erase' and 'Remove Annotations' both seem to be working for me.

Right now, windows.....but my main computer in my study is a Macbook Pro, do not know how it will respond on that. That did remove the annotation, thanks. But still will not highlight the multiple words.

This windows computer will still not highlight multiple words.

I am using a MacBook Pro on latest Mojave OS. Highlighting Scriptures is not working for me at. all - with no option to "remove annotation" after attempting to highlight, or so I thought. Came back to it later and highlight was there. It seems to be very delayed, particularly in CSB but not in NET...strange.

Michael, wish I could help, but I am on a PC and am not having any trouble with highlighting - adding or removing. So it seems the program works, but somehow not for you. 

Does it fail every place you try to highlight more than one word? Does it fail in every Bible? Does it fail with every highlighting palatte you try?

I seem to be having a related problem since upgrading to Logos 8 which I love by the way.  My highlights don't appear at all until I close the program and reopen it.  It immediately appears on the note document so it is registering, I just can't see it until I close and reopen the program.

Hi Howard

Sounds like a somewhat different - albeit related - issue.

Please start a new thread so we can try and work out what is going on

Thanks a lot Graham.  I had a look on my Surface Book and Surface Pro and it worked fine so I closed the layout on my desktop PC which I had carried over from Logos 7 and started a fresh one and it worked fine.
