I am playing around with new features and thought I would use the "Move" and "Restyle Annotations" commands on the drop-down for specific styles to do some clean-up.  I moved a few styles to a different palette and restyled a few annotations to use styles in another palette.  The note entries created in the original highlighting note files did not move to match the fact that the markup now belonged to another palette.  I searched the old file and did some manual drag and drop but if anyone has found a smooth way to do this instead I would be interested in how you got it done.  All of my palettes are set to use the palette-specific note file so I was curious to see what would happen.  I thought about moving highlight notes to topic specific files and put my notes into them but they don't show when I mouse over them like a note with an indicator box does so I changed my mind.  I could use the Information panel to see the content but I rarely use that for anything so it is not part of my layouts.

Either way, I am having fun thinking of ways to organize better.  Mostly, I just love reading my Scriptures and listening to God's Word to me!  I don't want to get too caught up in the playing around and waste time I could use actually studying.  :-)

Thanks.

Yes, that is what I found but the highlights (in the note file) will reflect the new palette for the style The logic would be that a given palette can be assigned to any Note file, or different note files, depending on your study. So the assignment only applies to new highlights.

Drag and drop is the only method - click on the Note indicator.

You can still do that on Windows? If so, we've got a bug on Mac. We used to be able to drag on the icon, but now we have to drag on the far left (or far right according to KS4J, but I haven't dared to try that yet; too easy to accidentally hit the x).
