Sometimes my highlights and anchors I applied in the Bible show up in my other resources like commentary or study bible notes. How did I do this because now they are only showing up in my Bible?

If you create a note linked to a Bible passage / verse it will show up in all “versified” resources such as other Bibles and commentaries

If you create a note linked to a word it just shows up in that resource (ignoring for the moment the Corresponding Highlights feature)

So if you want your notes to show up in all those resources, make sure you are linking it to the reference (select that in the left-hand side of the context menu)

Sorry I can’t post screenshots at the moment but please post back if what I said didn’t address your question.

James Amos:

Several possible reasons, but the simplest (Occam's razor happening here) is, you are using versified resources and have the visual filters turned on sometimes and then have turned them off.

It may be more complicated than that but that's the first thing I'd check.

My thanks to the various MVPs. Without them Logos would have died early. They were the only real help available.

Maybe this will help some. This screenshot is showing how one note is highlighted (ORANGE)in the commentary but the other note is not(GREEN). So where would I change it so that I could see the green note in the commentary?

Are the green and orange notes in the same notebook?

If not, is the notebook containing the green note enabled in the visual filter menu in the commentary?

Graham gave you the correct answer. It depends upon whether you created the note on the Selection or on the Reference. How are you creating your notes? If through the Context Menu, selection translated to top tab on the left side, reference to the second tab on the left side. If by add note on the note tool - the drop down menu labeled new note makes the choice.

I'm not sure, MJ, that this would explain what James is showing in his screenshot.

Am I missing something?

No but what we need to see is the anchor section of the two notes ...

Indeed - and looking at this again I think your explanation is the most likely one. Apologies - I wasn't thinking clearly.

I'm still trying to figure out notes. Is this what you need to see?

I quit using them in the past because I could not figure them out but I really want to use them.

Thanks for all of yalls help

Yes, look on the right side under Anchor - it shows a reference and nothing else ... it will appears on all resources containing that reference if the notebook is selected to show.  On the left side, note that a specific Bible and specific text is shown ... so it is a reference by selection and will not appear anywhere else.

Ok so I know how I created the note on the left. I did this by just highlighting the text and clicking on the "Add Note" icon that is in the popup menu.

What I don't know is how I created the note on the right, could you help me with remembering how I did this?

The Add a Note in the Notes Tool is a drop down menu which will (I think) default to the last used option if you don't explicitly set it.

Add a Note in the Context Menu depends upon the tab choice on the left - Selection or reference.

Ok I finally figured it out! I was selecting the wrong option in the context menu but got it figured out now. Thanks for the help

It's one of those things that trip many people up. Once you understand you are fine, but until that epiphany it is a struggle.
