Everett Headley:
The version doesn't matter, all my notes on each verse show up

I've tried this and love it, and am planning to follow your lead in moving my notes into Logos. However, I'm finding that the notes also show up in commentaries (and presumably other books referencing the verses). I've only been doing this for a day or two, but already have a few dozen notes on verses in Isaiah 40-55. These are fine in the Bible, but the commentaries often refer to the whole range Isaiah 40-55 and I then get multiple yellow notes icons, one for each verse I put a note on. I can imagine that I'll have a whole screen full of note icons on that range before I finish this project. Did you find that issue, and any workaround?

Everett Headley:
What's better is with the hyperlinks and citations, I always know where what came from which is super cool.

I couldn't make the hyperlinks and citations work. How did you do that?

If you attach a note to a selection (of text from a particular bible verse), the note/icon will only appear in that specific resource.

If you attach a note to a bible reference (i.e., the verse itself), the note/icon will also appear in other bible translations, as well as commentaries or other resources which reference that verse.

The wiki has more details about that.

You can also use the "Corresponding Notes and Highlights" visual filter checkbox to show or hide notes on a resource-specific basis (if you happened to want the notes/icons to show up in other bible translations, but not in particular commentaries).

Thanks to FL for including Carta and a Hebrew audio bible in Logos 9!

How do you do this, “Then I designed the Libronix relative to 256/color in the VirtualBox and traced that into Logos5 for import if I want.”?

"What do you mark?  Why?  and How?"

I've read through this thread -gleaning some tips here and there- and came up with this palette.

I am going to try using a new note for each resource, as many have recommended.  I'm liking putting labels in capsules for further annotation. 

Does anyone know how to make the label small? My bubble is too big, and it's quite hideous. Every time I click on "Capsule", all my formatting options are blanked out.

An alternate idea is creating a label using another tool: e.g. Word Art so an image can be used instead of Capsule.

Bumping a great thread... especially with how powerful notes and highlighting palettes have become.

@ David A Egolf

I like that approach. Your suggestion may help relieve some of the frustration I have had with making notes useful in my study. Thank you for your post sir!

Big Smile
