At the moment it is only possible to add anchors together. But I would like to add notes inbetween anchors. Is this somethat Logos is considering making possible?

I would use it this way: 

The first anchor could be a verse. I would then add my own comments/notes to the verse. Then later I would like to point to a commentary regarding this verse by creating another anchor. And then again my own comments etc. 

Does anyone think similarly? How do you do this at the moment?

If I understand your question correctly, I currently do something similar by simply adding an additional note to the same verse or selection.  But there is no way for me to tell whether a particular note includes my comments or those of another commentator without hovering over the note icon or clicking it to open the note.

I don't quite understand the problem you are describing

I can add a note to a Bible and make comments on it - then I can select a portion of text in a commentary and add that as an anchor to the existing note.

Are you looking for something different? If so, please provide a few more details.

If I understand correctly the OP,  the issue is you can’t easily tell which anchor point the comments you make relates.

All the notes are in the one text box, with all the anchor points grouped together above the notes.

instead of having:

anchor point

note

anchor point

note

 we currently have:

anchor point

anchor point

note, note

Okay, color me confused - doesn't mouse over do that?

Mouse over works on the note icon attached to the surface text but I don’t think it previews different text depending upon which anchor point you are currently at because it’s still just one big text box inside the note tied to all of the anchor points.

I don’t know if this makes any more sense but effectively I think OP is wanting to group together yet keep the detail (notes) separate for multiple anchor  that are related.

This allows you to know exactly which anchor point in the bunch tied together that related to which part of the data you have put in your note.

Okay, so it is clear as mud in my mind as I cannot conceive of a real-life example in which I would have an anchor on a note to which the comment doesn't relate. Obviously, I'm missing something but it's not a matter of concern worth my following up on.
