Please, can anyone help:

In Highlighting tool: I have been using my own palette for inductive Bible study, with many of my own image styles and do quite rigorous mark-ups in my preferred Bible. I wanted to do a Bible Search {Highlight Inductive/Precept –Gaby Israel} to look for all the instances where I marked up Israel in the Bible. The search seemed to take forever, and then later responded on the blue bar at the top that the PC is not responding.

I then thought that My own palette name could be the problem in the search (INDUCTIVE/PRECEPT –GABY) and went to rename the palette without any forward slashes / . And then it seemed that a problem slipped in. Some of my previously marked up text for certain styles throughout the Bible was “deleted”. I will insert a screen shot of NASB John 6.

All the orange coloured text used to be highlighted with specifically styled symbols and these just disappeared, rest were done.

Would there be any way to retrieve these previously marked items? In the end the palette name did not change to a new name.

I apologise if I’m not totally clear, but something went very wrong with my work in the  highlighting Tool and I would love to retrieve many hours of work.

I couldn't reproduce the problem, using your palette name. And I thought the "orange"/"yellow" text could have come from a Visual Filter, but those weren't affected by my rename.

I don't understand that your palette name did not change "in the end"! What other palette names do you have (a screenshot would help).

The issue is the formatting. If forward slashes are part of the name, it should be enclosed with quotes, because the synatx is {Highlight Palette name/Style name} --> where spaces don't require quotes. The style name has to be exact case.

So try {Highlight "Inductive/Precept –Gaby"/Israel}  to search for your Israel style.

Thank you Dave. Above is a screen shot of all the palettes

The Palette in question is the 9th from the top - INDUCTIVE/PRECEPT -GABY .  There are about 120 self-styled styles inside that palette. Could it possibly be that the file is sooo big that I interupted a process before it was finished and as a result only some of the styles in the palette was "pulled through"? For example through out the Bible the "Place" (double green underline) style was pulled through, as was "sin" (black boxed) and "see" (eye) and worship as in the example above. But all words marked as "Jesus", "God", "Israel", Pharisees" "believe" had their style image/colours removed and I was left with the orange/yellow text (looking like visual filter, but not). 

Yesterday my Logos upgraded to 8.7 SR2.

When I now select one of those orange/yellow words, eg "Jesus" in a text, right-click it for the Resource menu and then click on ""open notes and highlights", then I see the note anchored to Jn 9:35 and have to REDO the Highlight style to "Jesus, Messiah" as under the Inductive/Precept -Gaby Palette. Then the style again show up in the Bible.

My problem is that to redo every single markup in this way, will take an enormous amount of hours. If I can't restore it to what it used to be, is there a shortcut to highlight the same word in multiple passages at the same time?

I will definitively try this syntax. Thank you for your patience

What is the style name from the Notes tool

The next point is, do all the yellow/orange highlights have the same style name and did they come from the same original style. Because you can click the style in the Highlighting tool, and select Restyle Annotations. It will tell you how many highlights there are and you can select a new style name.

The orange/yellow higlights are in a sense "place markers" where different styles of highlights were = eg for Israel, For Jesus, for Faith, for Life etc. When I select the one of the orange/yellow highlights and open the notes tool, the highlight style is not identified (as in yr covenant tick). I have to redo the highlight style for the particular highlight and then it shows up correctly in the specific verse in the Bible.

It really seems as if some of the highlight styles have been erased, just leaving the orange/yellow marks in it's place. Maybe something just crashed when I did it and I have to accept it. 

I have tried to see if the Restyle Annotations would work for these, but unfortunately it does not.

Thank you, I really appreciate your help. If you think of any other way to get my markings back, I would love to know.
