I have a layout set up for an annual devotional Bible reading plan.  I would like to make highlights in the Bible for my devotional reading that only show up when in that Bible reading plan layout.  Is there a way to do this?

If Bible for annual devotional reading plan is only used in this layout, then can leave Visual Filters enabled with highlighting all the time.

Thankful for Faithlife offering many Bibles => https://www.logos.com/products/search?Resource+Type=Bibles&Status=Live

Multi-View resource(s) has secondary resource inheriting Visual Filter settings from primary so annual devotional Bible could be a secondary resource(s) in Multi-View.

Screen shot shows two note indicators in Complete Jewish Bible on the right along with other Visual Filter differences: e.g. Chapter and Verse numbers.

If you use the Visual Symbol feature and scroll right to the bottom of the list you can turn off a notes of highlights document for any resource.

I am not sure what the default is but this may involve you turning off the devotional highlights in all your other bibles on a piecemeal basis but I am pretty sure you will only need to do this once for each bible version.

Thanks for the replies.  So if I'm understanding correctly, once highlights are applied to a Bible from within any layout, if the filter option to show the highlights for the Bible in question are turned on, they will show up for that Bible regardless of which layout is accessing that Bible.  Likewise, turning the filter off will hide the highlights regardless of the layout accessing the Bible.

I understand there are situations where that is what a person might want, but for Bibles, because a person may have such a wide variety of study topics and/or may be studying  a topic from a variety of perspectives, I wish there was an option to make Bible highlights layout specific.

Thanks again for the replies!  Smile

That goes along with my suggestion of projects.

Correct since resource visual filter settings apply across layouts.

A layout specifies arrangement of Resource(s), Guide(s), Search, ... in Window(s), Panel(s), and Tab(s).

It's funny ...I guess without realizing it, I've always thought of layouts more as projects than as layouts.  And now that I think about it, I suppose that's why I have as many layouts as I do, yet many of them are in fact the same "layout" (or very nearly so)--just set up for different purposes/topics of study.  I.e. they're each really a unique project rather than a unique layout.

Personally, I don't care too much whether they're called layouts or projects, though I do think the term "project" is actually more accurate/fitting for me.  But whatever they're called, I sure would like to see the option of having resource filter settings tied to the layout/project.
