I always read my Bible with English, Hebrew, Greek, and Latin texts all open at the same time.  In Logos 7, I would highlight a text and the other versions would all highlight as the same time.  It doesn't do that anymore.  Does anybody know if there are versions that will do this or is this feature lost for good?

Oh, for English I use the NASB 95.

Thank you

This was (is) called corresponding highlights and will be brought back. See this page for a list of features that will be brought back to provide feature parity with L7.

Thank you.

There is another very important feature that is also lost which I didn't see on the list.

If I am working on a passage over a long period of time, a week for a sermon or maybe a month for research, I will be going back to, say, a passage guide over and over.  There used to be a way to at least highlight a resource.  It could mean whatever  you wanted it to mean, but at least you knew that you were already there.  When you have a lot of commentaries and monographs and theologies you need a way to mark them in your guides as either read, valuable, or not relevant, so you don't keep clicking on resources you already looked at.

This was dropped in Logos 8 - see https://community.logos.com/forums/p/173733/1004684.aspx#1004684 for an explanation and ideas about moving forward.

FYI - a summary of changes between Logos 7 and 8, including this one, is available at https://support.logos.com/hc/en-us/articles/360019175372-Changes-from-Logos-7-to-Logos-8

Thanks, Graham.  You are always helpful.  

I am very disappointed in this change.  CS told me about the favorites option.  We went through it together.  I found it time consuming and certainly less efficient than the old system.  I have thousands of resources.  If I do a study of a certain passage or theme over time, I will be opening and opening resources that I had already looked at.  Save me time.  Don't waste it.

Thanks again!!

This was one of the best features of Logos and it's mind-boggling that it was dropped. It was especially helpful when having an English translation open side-by-side with an original language which is my default layout. New releases are supposed to be improvements with additional features, not the removal of things we've used for years. I just don't get it.

Two different things have been mentioned in this thread and I am unsure to which one you are referring.

If you are talking about Corresponding Notes & Highlights visual filter, the reason it was "dropped" is because of the rewrite of the notes feature. For many years customers have been asking for a better note system... and we have got it. However, it did mean that some old features will need to be brought back. 

I am of the mindset that it would have been better to wait until it was ready to go... but not everyone has that same view.
