Hello,

I would like to make this suggestion again. 

My suggestion is to add an option to the already existing Visual Cues for identifying the active verse in Logos 4.

Currently all we have is a temporary Visual Cue that flashes on the screen then disappears.  And that's fine - if that's all you need. But I usually have so much going on in my layout that it's easy to lose track of where I was or what the active verse was.

  • So, I would like to suggest adding an option to turn on a customizable colored highlight (you could set it to the color of your choice) that follows you from verse to verse - when you scroll. 

This way you could very easily see, at a glance, which verse is active.  Several other Bible Software programs have this.

OR . . .  Maybe it could be a choice as to what type of Visual Cue you would like to see - the current one that disappears or one that stays on the screen showing your active verse, and the active reference in the Commentary.

Now, I do think that this should only be an option you could turn on or off, because some users may not want to have their active verse highlighted all the time and others may.

I suggested this very thing a while back - here:  http://community.logos.com/forums/p/9353/74382.aspx#74382  but hardly anyone else paid much attention to it.  Maybe with a different title, who knows . . .

Yes, this is very much needed.  Someone suggested at one point that the active panel have a more defined boundary.  (If you click on a verse so that your text comparison becomes available, for example, note that, the verse shows in the passage window. So we can know what is an active verse.)
