Is there a way to search for all highlights that were made using a specific style in a custom palette and movie all of them to a specific notebook?

I created a highlight style called "Memory Verses".  Now I want to find all of these verses and move them into a notebook called "Memory Verses" so I can keep them all together and easily searchable.

Is this possible?

Currently all of my highlights in my "Self Study" palette go to a "Highlights" notebook.  Now I'm trying to separate out just the memory verses from the rest.

It is possible to do as you request but they are "easily searchable" without having to change Notebooks. If you wish to use the new Notebook for this purpose, you must ensure that new highlights are directed to that Notebook.

You can find your existing highlights using {Highlight Memory Verse}. If the style name is not unique, use {Highlight Self Study/Memory Verse}

In the Notes tool, click on the Notebook  Filter, select your Notebook name  then click on Type > Highlights, select a range of highlights (from search results), and select a Notebook name within the Notebook header (create the Memory Verses Notebook first if necessary).

Thanks.  I've already created and saved a search for the "Memory Verse" highlights.  The issue is I cannot move them to a notebook from there.

Finding highlights inside the notebook tool is also limited in that you cannot filter by a particular style within a palette.  I can move "Memory Verse" to a new palette so that all future highlights using that style go to a particular notebook, but I cannot move existing highlights.

EDIT:  For now I've created a saved Passage List from the search.  This is OK stop gap solution until I can figure out a way to move all the verses to a notebook.

Have you tried what I suggested? You can sort the highlights within that Notebook so you can compare the passages to the search results and select a number of them (Shift-click) to be moved to a new Notebook.

Maybe I'm not understanding your instructions fully.  I tried sorting the passages in my "Highlights" Notebook, but there's no way for me to sort or filter by a particular style so that I can select them and move them to another notebook.  Here is a screenshot.  What am I missing?

Select the "funnel" icon (Filters) to the left of the Notebook one to follow my instructions!

After selecting from Notebook and Type, click on Reference > Bible to sort them:-

Select multiple passages that correspond to the passages from your {Highlight ...} search. The Notebook heading will appear to the right, and it will allow you to move them to another Notebook.

I did follow your instructions, but the problem is with the last step.  Once I sort the highlights there's still no way for me to group them together by highlight style.  So there's no way for me to figure out which verses to select to then move to the correct notebook.  These are custom highlight styles so like your screenshot, it just shows up with the generic user icon rather than a preview of the highlight style.  So as far as I can tell, there's no way for me to look for a specific style within the palette.  I'm only trying to move my "Memory Verse" highlights and not all the highlights within in palette.

Your instructions and all other ways I've tried simply shows every highlight within the palette.

The instructions show every highlight within a Notebook. If you need to restrict the results by Bible, then select it under the Resource filter.

Your {Highlight Memory Verse} search will show the passages highlighted with that style, so you only select those passages in the Notes tool!

I tried searching {Highlight Memory Verse} and {Highlight Self Study/Memory Verse}, but both found 0 results.  The search works when I just do a general search so I know I'm typing it out correctly.

I appreciate all your help.  I'm clearly missing something important.

Your "general search" is the one that I intended, so you manually select the corresponding passages in the Notes tool! As it shows two bibles, filter the Notes tool for one bible at a time, and only select those passages that come from search results for that bible.

OK.  Gotcha.  So you mean that I should have both of these searches open at the same time side by side and just go down the list?  Right?

This would work, but is pretty cumbersome because sometimes I'll have multiple highstyles for a single verse and each one will show up as a separate note so verses will show up multiple times in the list.  

I wish there was a function in the Highlighting tool to just move all notes with a particular style to a new notebook or make if I move a highlight style into a new palette that the assigned notebook would be retroactive to all existing highlights.

By default, highlights are not saved in a specific notebook. You can set the notebook in which highlighting from a specific palette is saved. To do this, right-click the palette name, hover over Notebook, and select the notebook in which you want those highlights to appear. watch this  https://support.logos.com/hc/en-us/articles/360016517891-Highlighting it'll help you

You could Restyle (in the Style menu) your Memory Verse highlights to a non-custom style with a unique icon to make them more recognisable in Notes!?

Restyle back to Memory Verse when finished.

That was very helpful.  Restyling the notes made it much easier to identify what I wanted to move.  Thank you!

Thanks.  The issue is I had already done that and now wanted to move a specific style out of the notebook I had designated.  Moving my highlight style and setting a new notebook doesn't move the existing highlights to the new notebook so I was looking for a solution.

I am moving my "Memory Verse" highlight style to a new palette with a new notebook designated so that future highlights will be in the correct notebook. 

I would be nice if Logos allows for different notebooks to be assigned to styles within a palette rather than just at the palette level.
