Is there a way to get all my notes and highlights from a commentary gathered into one document . . . like clippings? I've highlighted a bunch of material in a couple of my commentaries and I would like to place all that material in one working document.

I want to be able to see all the material that I highlighted in one document so that I can get a better feel for the flow of the ideas that I highlighted so that I can select the most important ideas given the time available to teach. I am trying to compress the material into a more manageable document rather than scrolling through the entirety of both books.

I would suggest an inline search of the commentary for {Highlight *}, and set the context to sentence. You can then select all the text and copy/paste the result.

Alternatively, use the Notes tool to filter your notes to just the highlighting in that one resource. Select the first note, the press CTRL+A to select all. Again, you can copy/paste the result.

(The result will be very similar in both cases. The latter is easier, but the former is easier to read on screen.)

If you need help with the steps for either of the above, just ask.

Thank you so much for the suggestions. I was able to use the second suggestion and it worked out just fine! :-)
