I was going through a passage and highlighted a section, and then I have tried to remove and it will not erase. Why is this?

Note: I made the highlight on my ESV tab but on the parallel version and not on the ESV version.

How can I remove this highlight?

Welcome to the forums! Smile Sorry you are having troubles. Tongue Tied

I am sorry, but I don't understand what you are trying to say. A screenshot might help.

Here is an image. I highlighted once in the left column (ESV) it showed up in both columns and it erased.

However, when I highlighted in the right parallel column, it highlights both columns, but I cannot erase them. I have tried erasing from both columns in total and by part, and I've tried to use the highlight negation button in the left column (it does not show up in the right column.)

Nothing will remove either the highlight or the underline. Odd.

Thanks for the screenshots. 

You are using a view that I never use... I don’t see any benefit in it. Others do however! I point that out because I don’t have access to my computer right now and can’t advise on the specifics of having multiple bibles in a single pane. 

For clarification: highlights attach to a specific translation, but can appear in others, if desired, through the “corresponding notes and highlights“ feature. I assume that you have that turned on. However, I don’t know if it functions differently in your view. Normally you would go to the individual resource‘s visual filter menu And turn it off. You can’t delete the highlight from a different resource than the one you created it in. 

If you don’t want the higblight in ANY resource, you can delete the actual note And it will disappear

If you hover your cursor over the highlight do you get a popup indicating the resource in which the highlight was made?

Yes, when I mouse over the left column (ESV), it does attribute it to a note in the NASB.

Ahh!!! You led me to the answer. I had to open the NASB in its own tab and then I could remove the highlight.

When the NASB was open as a parallel in the ESV tab I could add the highlight, but I could not remove/erase it.

Thanks!
