Whenever I want to highlight text, I select my text and right-click to pull up the options but only five or six (and sometimes less) highlighter colors show up and I can't access any other colors. Any idea why this is happening? I have searched high and low for some setting or panel and I can't find anything that will allow me access to the full selection of highlighting tools.

Hello Michael,

welcome to the user forums!

I may have misunderstood, but it seems you are looking for Tools / Highlighting (i.e. open the Tools menu and - if Highlighting is not pinned to the top or otherwise visible - search in the Tools menu for "Highlighting" and open it) - does this help? 

EDIT: sorry I overlooked that you are using the web app. See below

Click the icon to the left of the highlights and you will open the Highlight Tool which will give you access to all of them

That little highlighter icon is a static symbol and does not open anything. I see only the last few highlighters I've used but no way to open the highlight tool.

There is no selection available for Highlighting. All I see from the TOOLS menu is this:

In the WebApp there's no highlighting tool (yet), thus the static symbol. You can use the notes tool instead.

EDIT: screenshots:

invoke through selection menu or right-click menu

   

take away the note symbol you don't need (purple box) and select the highlight of your choice (green)

 

Running Logos 9 latest (beta) version on Win 10

Wow.  That is really cumbersome and a pain but I guess it'll have to do for now. Logos won't run on my computer because I use a Linux operating system and they won't produce a version compatible with Linux for various reasons and Logos, for whatever reason, won't run with the WINE (Windows Emulation) program on my flavor of Linux and it also won't run on my iMac because it doesn't have the latest and greatest flavor of the Apple OS either. Such is life.

Thanks so much for the help and the tip on how to get around it though. It really does help a lot. I have a specific color coding system I use in my studies and the Web version falls short in allowing me to implement that in a simple manner. Nevertheless, I do own several computers (I own a computer business) and so I do have the Desktop version on one of my computers but I do the vast majority of my studying on my laptop and it has Linux. I guess I'll have to modify my studying to revolve around my Windoze computer. Stick out tongue 

God bless you and thanks again!

Mike

Welcome Big Smile

Curious about iMac model and graphics processor ?

Thankful for dosdude1 patcher of macOS 10.14 Mojave that allowed installation of macOS 10.14 Mojave on a 2010 Mac Mini for Logos 9 & Verbum 9 use (did not have an AMD Radeon 5###/6### graphics processor, a known issue with patching macOS 10.14 for unsupported Mac models)

This pig is an older iMac 8,1. It has an Intel Core 2 Duo processor running at 2.8GHz. I have 4GB of RAM and ATI Radeon HD 2600 Pro video with 256MB of VRAM. It is running Snow Leopard (I think) and that is the highest flavor I can run on it. I wish Apple would have had more foresight into their computers with backward compatibility and such. They are a huge pain in the butt to work with.

Older iMac8,1 (from early 2008) can be upgraded to macOS 10.14 Mojave => https://dosdude1.com/mojave that is currently supported for Logos 9.# & Logos 8.17 (maintenance until free 9 release later this year)

For Logos use, highly recommend replacing internal spinning hard drive with Solid State Disk (SSD). I Fix It website has 24" iMac repair guide (Moderate difficulty) => https://www.ifixit.com/Guide/iMac+Intel+24-Inch+EMC+2134+and+2211+Hard+Drive+Replacement/8968

FYI: Mactracker application shows iMac 8,1 with 24" Display could have 2.8 GHz or 3.06 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo ("Penryn")

I have tried everything I possibly can to upgrade and it fails every time. SSDs are great, yes, but it wouldn't make a difference on an OS install. As for processor speed, mine is 2.8GHz.

I'll check out the websites and see if it's worth my effort. As I mentioned, I do own a computer business and I have a lot of options but I would love to add a nice Mac to my collection. I got this one for free and so it's my "Frankenstein" Mac project. LOL 

Thanks for the links. I'll see what I can do.

Just out of interest, what is the oldest Linux computer that you run successfully?

How do you find Logos runs on a twelve year old windows machine. (not one like Trigger's Broom)
