Hello,

On my iPad, I'm using a highlight style called "Tim Keller". It is in a palette that I have set up to save on my "Tim Keller" Notebook on my Logos 8 app on my MacBook. Works like a charm there.

However, on the iPad, when I use the "Tim Keller" highlight style it does not automatically save to the Tim Keller notebook. I have to edit each individual highlight and move it over to the Tim Keller notebook.

Am I missing something? Is there a way to set it up on my iPad like I have it on Logos 8 on my MacBook? Thanks!

I don’t believe this is a current option, but I could be wrong.

Currently, on your Mobile device, you need to long press the highlight, tap Edit Note, and you can choose the Notebook there.

We are looking at ways to make this easier to do in the future.

Why doesn’t it just use the way it is set up on Logos 8 on our computers by default?

Do you mean, why doesn’t it use the preferences set up on the desktop app?

Right. If I have my "Tim Keller" highlight set to save to "Tim Keller" notes document, why isn't that the default on Mobile as well? Shouldn't it be assumed I would want the same highlight functionality as what I have configured on my desktop?

The current functionality of having to move the highlight every time makes the iPad basically unusable for reading books for me.

That is reasonable. For clarification, the old App didn’t work that way either. FL certainly doesn’t want mobile only users abandoned, so a mobile UI fix will be required. FWIW - I think they need to bring back the “sticky” solution.

This is actually a significant annoyance when researching for a paper. I should be able to set a default notebook and have all my highlights drop into it. Even if the highlights just went into the last notebook, I would only need to set it once. It is tedious and unnecessary to expect users to open the edit note every time they highlight.

That is the "sticky" setting I mentioned. It should return!
