If you mean "create a highlighting note," then no.

so when I have my inline search open and it shows all my results there is no way to high light all those at one time?

Again, if by highlight you mean "create a highlighting note," then no. You can't use a search to create highlighting notes. The closest you could do would be to create a visual filter... but that isn't what you asked. If you mean by "highlight" a temporary highlight of the search results, I am fairly certain the answer still is no. On the other hand, you can use a regular search to accomplish this. 

In the screenshot below, I used a regular search for "NIV" in this particular resource. It "highlighted" every instance of the search term. The "highlight" is not permanent. When the search changes or the window is closed, the highlights disappear.

Let's try this again. Maybe I didn't make myself clear enough...

Let's say I do an inline search in my ESV for the word "heart" 

My search results come up with 156 hits or whatever you call them in the NT.

I can see that ALL THOSE are in yellow. But as you say when the search changes or the window is closed, the highlights disappear. That's within a resource other than a bible. I get that.

But what I'm asking, is there a way to have all these inline searches within the Bible permanently highlighted so that when I open my ESV the next time all these words/heart will still be highlighted.

And if this is possible can I or I assume I can highlight the word "heart" with any available high light in Logos. Hope that makes sense.

No. Thanks for clarifying. 

Your best bet to accomplish something like that is to learn how to create visual filters, perhaps based on lemmas. https://wiki.logos.com/Visual_Filter

There is no way to bulk apply highlighter markup to a set of search results (though I can envision how we could solve that and can see why it might be useful).

However, Visual Filter documents were really intended to solve this problem and may meet your needs.

Yes: create a visual filter document.

Fun Fact: in my early days at Faithlife (then Logos) I wrote a blog post showing how to leverage searching as a kind of visual filter for calling your attention to particular words as you read, which resulted in our expanding our morphology visual filter to include any kind of search term in what's now our Visual Filter document.

Fantastic! I had no idea I could do this. This is going to be fun and a whole new level for me. I love this stuff. 

thanks to all three of you for the how to vid.

FWIW - This is actually inquired about somewhat regularly. It may be good to throw into the project pile. Smile
