I continue to be so frustrated by the inability to remove the highlight from text. I have tried all of the suggestions I can find on the Forums, but to no avail. Why does such a bug continue from update to update? Removing a highlight should be as simple as a click on an icon. Even when the icon to do that is shown it does not work! I have tried Ctrl-shift-K as well. Nothing seems to work consistently, though on occasion one or the other will work. I am on a Windows PC running Windows 11. Please, Logos, get this fixed!

Unfortunately for you, it works well for me -- I see nothing that needs fixed. However, I can remember being in your position before I understood how highlights work. There are two basic scenarios - the simple one where there is only one highlight on the text and the complex one where there are multiple highlights on the text of which you wish to delete one or more. The first can, in theory, be a simple click of an icon; the second cannot as you need to indicate which highlight(s) you wish to delete. When I was getting the hang of it, my most common error was deleting all the highlights when I only wanted to delete one.

When there is only one highlight CNTL+SFT+K removes the highlight; when I use it with multiple highlights it appears to remove them one at a time. To remove highlights and notes (if any) I use the Context Menu. Can you attach a screen shot (use the paper clip icon) to give us an example of when it fails? Or are you perhaps confusing the highlighting of search results or visual filters with the highlighting that you manually add and remove via CNTL+SFT+K or the Context Menu?

I have closed all search tabs so that isn't the problem - though I have experienced that being the problem. (Incidentally, is there a way to specify the highlight color of search results? It would be helpful if it were obvious that a highlight is a search result, thus preventing it being confused with other highlights.) The context menu seems to remove any note that is attached, but not the highlight - even though that was not the intention. (By the way, is there a way to undo an action, such as when a note is accidentally removed? The usual Windows command does not work.

Do you have "Notes & Highlights (Corresponding)" selected in your Visual Filter? It could be that the highlight simply is in another bible - deselect this to avoid viewing those.

Open the Notes tool, in the left bottom part of the page there is a papertrash icon, click this to get access to deleted notes and highlights in order to undo notes deletions

In the desktop app, the first step is not (for me) intuitive. Attached are steps to remove or edit a highlight.
