Is there a way to identify what the sourcing (Palette/Style/Name) is for highlighted text?

For notes it is easy, rest the cursor over the note icon and the note is displayed.  Click the icon and you jump to the note.

Is there anything similar for highlights?  I've tried all the above.  I've created a few palettes, some place an icon next to or in the text, the icon is descriptive.  But when I've copied from one palette to create another palette and apply a separate meaning for the style and use that highlight in text, and if I didn't add a note, how can I back track to determine the palette/style it came from?

Any help?

Not sure what you mean (you can have a Note icon for Highlights if you add it in the Notes tool, but it won't tell you the palette/style).

Did you add a note to the Highlight in the Notes tool?

In Notes tool, use the sidebar to select Highlights and/or the Resource.  Click a highlight and then click the second item in the toolbar (Highlight Style), and scroll until you see a check mark; which will tell you the palette and style.

Sorry for the confusion.  I transitioned from Wordsearch 9/20, been learning all about Logos and integrating that learning into studying.  Learned about Notebooks, Notes, Highlights.  The differences and at least some of the nuances of each including creating and using different pallets and styles.  So I'm reading thru Daniel and I come across some text I annotated sometime in the past 9 months.  And this is what I see and some information about the highlighting (comments to the side).

This particular set of entries was made 5ish months ago, so still pretty steep on the Notebooks, Notes, Highlights learning curve.

Now this is what I think I know in the graphic below.  First, if the icon graphic (gavel) on the left was a Note icon (but it is not), I could place my cursor over the icon, see the note text and if desired by clicking on the Note icon, the Notes Tool would open and I would have jumped to the particular Note. 

What I'm trying to do is clean up my Notebooks, Notes, and Highlights to be compliant to what I now know, or thought I had learned.  Being Highlights are an element of the Notebook, I would have thought they would share the same characteristics, such as if I hovered my cursor over the Highlight that I would learn something about the origin of the Highlight (Pallet, Style, Notebook, Note or something).  But nothing.  When these notes were constructed I had created the Theology Pallet and used descriptive graphics for each of the styles.  So as noted below, intuitively I know the origin and meaning of the highlight, you can see with the Pallet open there other examples of "A."  But again, if I hover over the highlighted text, nothing.  If I click it nothing.  In this case the Orange ("B") highlighted text in verse 27 could have come from at least 2 different Pallets.  The only way I know to interrogate that Highlight, is as you point out and shown below.  So is this the only way to find out what the highlighting means?

If I go back to verse 24, as noted in the first graphic, the Orange Highlight does have a Note included.  So both Note and Highlight are there, but I didn't add a Note Icon when that Notebook entry was created.  So it appears that even if the reference is annotated this way, I end up having to go thru the same Tools | Notes back door to figure out what highlight was used and what it means.  Or is there some other way I am missing?  All this activity occurred in the Bible version where the annotations were created.

Thanks for the insights....

When posting, please use the paperclip icon to attach screenshots (jpg or png), or use the Amber icon next to it. Pasting an image into the post does not make it scalable for clarity.

True, so it appears that the gavel icon could be omitted. If you created a Note instead, you would have a Note icon and the Notes tool would open to allow you to use the Orange Highlight style (or any other style). Now you have a useful icon which will open the Notes tool and allow you to determine the highlight style (and add a note/comment if desired).

Yes (as per my previous post).

You need to organise your styles into user-created Palettes without duplicating a system style. But you can fix these by Editing your style and adding a unique element to it; even give it a new name.

Thanks Dave,

Regarding the graphic insertion.  I did choose the paper clip and selected the file from my computer.  Once that was done, the max width is set at 550 and the max height is set at 0, I change max height to 550.  And click insert.  Is there something else I should be doing?

Regrading notes/highlights, as you point out it is a matter of trying to come up with a standardized process when using these tools.  I find a lot of capability, but don't realize the impact until you get down the road a bit and try to do something with what you created in the past.  Searching highlights helped a bunch, plus I've consolidated some pallets.  I've got less than 500 notes/highlights that I'm cleaning up before embarking into another study where I'll be generating a bunch more.  So this has all been real helpful.

Just alter the max width, if necessary, and leave height at 0 (it will be determined from the proportions of the image).

I set this at 400 wide. Click it for an enlarged image.

Great. Also consider Labels with some of your highlighting styles, as these allow you to enter data that is available when you hover over the highlight.
