I know I'm overlooking something in the forum or in the Wiki. How do I turn off the function that makes a note every time I highlight something?

Every Highlight is stored as a "note" in the Notes tool. That is the way they are documented, and it started before Logos 7. In the tool, you can make it appear as a Note by adding a Note icon and some text, or just add some text.

It's the way it works, but if you want to use it creatively you could develop a tagging system to go with things you are studying. This way through the faceted browsing in the Notes you can find it easily later. 

For instance, I was reading a lot of Second Temple stuff recently. So I would highlight an interesting tidbit on the Pharisees and in the note tag "Pharisees" and "Second Temple" and if I found a good summary "Summary" I can narrow down my search on "Summary" and see summaries on "Essenes" "Sadducees" etc

By combining these tags in search I can find what I found interesting in my study. This may help see the power of a highlight creating a note (?)

LOL- I wish they would allow you to dump the so-called notes function.

I don't understand. We don't need to use Notes.

I don't use notes in Logos- there are other much better suited app's- I find the fact every time I highlight it creates a note file appalling- it takes to much work to delete a highlight palette from your system- in plain English- notes just stinks.

Creating a highlight doesn't create a note file - it adds a note to the Notes Tool.

Deleting a highlight palette is a simple operation

I understand you don't like Logos Notes but I don't understand why it is causing you these particular issues.

Graham-

So your saying if I create a palette for say- Romans- to only be used in Romans I can delete it with no trouble- so far I have found it to be a TEDIOUS task to clear a resource of highlighting- including trying to delete the palette to accomplish it.

Deleting a palette itself is straightforward

But are you referring to the fact that you can't delete a palette which has styles in use for highlighting?

If so I can understand that being a problem - if you want to explore it further to see if there is a solution that would work for you I recommend starting a new thread.
