Just venting...and really wishing this feature existed.

 

I selected a Bible chapter I was working on, then tried to use some Logos tools...but while typing "Jeremiah" into one of them something went wrong after typing "J" and windows' focus left that tool...but I was still typing, so Logos dutifully applied my keyboard shortcuts for Highlighting to the selected text.  

And now, instead of having this:

I have this:

And it will take me about an hour--based on experience--to rebuild my highlighting.

 Luckily for me, my tablet was off-line at the time and I can use it as an offline reference to manually rebuild what I had.

Still, ARGH!!!!  Really wish there was a Highlighting Undo!  Please help me out; cast your vote at UserVoice.

Right-click "Then" at the beginning of Jer 42:1, choose "Selection" on the context menu, then choose "Remove highlighting" on the left. The big purply-red highlight will be removed without erasing anything else.

I went ahead and added this tip onto the Wiki on the Highlighting page.

Thanks!

BTW, it doesn't have to be the first word--it can be any region (as small as one character). The entirety of all highlights that are applied to the selection you right-click on will be removed. (So, you just want to pick a word/character that doesn't have any highlights you want to keep.)

Thanks Bradley for reading it over, I corrected the wiki entry to be more accurate in what should be clicked.

Wow!  T H A N K S !!  Geeked

While I already rebuilt that one by hand, I get socked by the over selection bug often enough that this tip will really come in handy/be a huge timesaver--especially when I'm in a rush and highlight faster than I see Logos make textual selections.  Huge plus that it doesn't remove the same highlighter applied elsewhere within the effected range.

Ward I thought a pirate had hijacked your account when I read your title!  Glad to see there's a workaround

I just goofed up a highlighting in a selection with other highlighting, some of it the same style...but with this nifty feature, I rapidly recovered.

... just had to give the coder of this feature a shout out of thanks!...again!  Geeked

I have used this a couple of times since you helped us discover it by your original accident. Big Smile
