Any way to change a particular group of note icons? I have several notes with book commentary marked with a GREEN STAR. Any way to change all these at once to a different icon color or shape?

Yes.

In the notes tool

  • select all of the notes you desire to change;
  • with all notes selected you can change the highlighting style, annotation symbol, and perform several other task

Thanks Fred!

I've been changing to "no icon" for each of my Workflow notes (to avoid the 30 icons at the beginning of each section in my versified resources) doing this as a batch will save LOTS of clicks and refreshes.

This does not work for me. First, it's difficult to select notes. The keyboard shortcut for "select all" simply doesn't work, it grabs stuff all over the page. Then I manually selected smaller and smaller groups of notes. Finally did just my Genesis notes, tried to change the icon from "various" to all one thing. No response. 

I hoped this would be a fix to the vast majority of my notes not appearing, in spite of having the yellow note set. I know if I change it to nothing, than change it back to the default, they'll appear. We're not there yet, I guess.

This was intentionally left out for now due to current limitations. Shift+clicking for consecutive notes works well as long as you stay to ~100 notes at a go.

No response. 

After making any changes in the bulk editor, you need to scroll to the bottom and hit "apply changes". Is that not working for you?

I didn't realize you needed to scroll down to hit "apply changes"; that's a lot of scrolling, and it hides the button. That did indeed work for me, but it still leaves me with dozens of batches to do. I have 3200 Bible notes that don't show up.
