Making a way to use Anchors even batter in Logos 8 Notes:

Is there a way to identify Anchors certain without having to go click the 'fuller view' option, which takes up more room?

Check out this short video.

According to FL, hovering over a note's anchor is supposed to show the selected text rather than the resource information.

I can reproduce what you are seeing with NKJV anchor selections from the introduction. I think this is a specific edge case that needs to be fixed. You might want to report this as a bug.

Thinking a bit more about your suggestion, one option would be for FL to automatically show part of the selected text to the right of the anchor.

That way, you wouldn't have to manually enter anything to identify which anchor corresponded to a particular selection.

Thanks. It does show more info by showing full anchor.

I thought about it and yes, we can go up and click the option to show a fuller view, but then it takes up so much more space. So we have to collapse it again and then open it up again to check over and over. Hyper-links in the note body will solve so many problems.

My suggestion was for the collapsed anchor view to show a snippet of the selection to the right of the anchor:

I agree that it's not practical to toggle back and forth between "Show full anchor text" to see which anchor corresponds to a particular selection.

How did you get it to do that?

Is that something we can NOW do?

That's just a mockup of his suggestion. 😉
