Here's my situation: I'm working through a book and highlighting sections. Then I go to the notes tool and export the highlights for that book to a doc. In the export, I see the highlighted text but no citations which is unhelpful because then I have no idea where in the book that highlight came from without going back to logos and trying to find the individual highlight and then click on the highlight to load the book in the location where the highlight was made.

Is there any way to export the citation with the highlight? This is easy to do in Kindle and I'm wanting to move more reading over to Logos but if there are no citations with highlights that could be a deal breaker. 

Secondly when viewing highlights in the notes tool is there any way to order highlights by their location in the book?

This should be possible, but others can state if this will happen soon.

In the Filters sidebar, click the appropriate book under Resource.

Any clue if the default sort order is by the location of the highlight in the book or the order in which the highlighting was done?

When a resource is selected in the filters, the default sort order is by the resource order, but you can change it to created/modified if you like.

I'm only guessing, but my guess would be that you attached highlights to the book and not the reference. Could definitely be wrong.

As an alternative, try an Inline Search for {Highlight *} in a duplicate of the resource. This means you have two tabs/panels for the resource. If you click the passage header in the duplicate, it will open the original resource to that location.

.

.

{Highlight *} will find all the highlights, but {Highlight style_name} will find the highlights for that style.

I'm confused. I'm simply highlighting text in a book. When I look at the highlights in the note tool there is an anchor to the location in the book. However when I export the highlights all I get is the highlighted text. No citation or indication where it came from in the book--that's what seems to be missing unless I\'ve overlooked a setting.

Kevin was wrong! You haven't overlooked anything - see my suggestion above.

I have this same question: how can I get my notes to include the citations along with my note-text (if any) when I export them.  This afternoon, I posted this same question as yours in the Faithlife group for the Notes Tool.

If you copy a selected passage, of course, you get the citations when you paste it.  But that is not helpful when you are trying to capture all your reading notes in Logos first and then send them to your writing software in a batch to work on the writing project.

Agreed. This is a strange omission and hopefully will be fixed in a future release.

I know that this is an older post, but I am having the same problem... Does anyone know if this was addressed in Logos9? The only way that I can get the bibliographic data included is to copy the highlights one-at-a-time. The ability to mass export highlights with bibliographic data would save tremendous amounts of time.

If this feature is still not available, how do we request that this feature be added in the future?

Go to the L9 feedback site.

I have this same issue. I found this forum but it doesn't look like anyone ever went and added it to the suggestion site. If they did, I couldn't find it; so I added it. Please go and upvote it:

Also, not sure who gets "notifications" on these forums, but since I replied directly to Dave, please let me know if others receive. If not, I'll "reply" to the initial poster.

Thanks,
