I am planning on going through the Bible highlighting texts different colors pertaining to different topics.  Is it possible to turn the highlights "on and off" without deleting them.  I want to be able to view the highlights, but not all the time.  I think they will be distracting at times.

No.

But you could successively rename the \My Documents\Libronix DLS\ResourceMarkup folder to turn ALL markups "off" and then "on".

While my need for this feature is different than yours - I want to illustrate different markup schemes and switch multiple markups on and off - I would stronly support this as a suggested enhancement if, in fact, there isn't a sneaky way to do it now.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

I've just sent in the following requests to suggest@logos.com  ... y'all may want to copy all or part of my list and send them your own "votes" and ideas:

1. Add the ability to toggle highlights off/on for a given resource, independently for each highlighting color/style, or for any instance of a highlighting palette, and with a user-specifiable range in the resource.

2. Add the ability to search a resource for the next occurance of any specified highlight color/style/palette (single item or group) by some simple single-keystroke method such as F3 to find the next, Shift-F3 to find the previous, and Ctrl-F3 to redefine the search parameters.

3. Add the ability to automatically create a verselist from any portion of a Bible, based on any specified highlight color/style/palette (single item or group).

4. Add the ability to automatically create a linked-page-number list from any portion of any resource, based on any specified highlight color/style/palette (single item or group).  This list would have the general form/function that VerseLists do now, but instead of verses would show page numbers with location-ID's.  Those ID's would be abcd/efgh, where a indicates the middle of the highlight is in the top quarter of the left column of a page, and h indicates the bottom quarter of the right column.  The searched item would be displayed with user-toggle options similar to VerseList options, showing either JUST the highlighted words OR the full sentence OR the full paragraph that they are a part of.  The highlight color/style itself should be shown as in the resource.  Hovering over the page number/letter would bring a popup with the paragraph, and clicking on it would open the resource in a new pane to that location.

5. Add the ability to delete any specified highlight color/style/palette (single item or group) markings from a given range (verses or pages) of a given Resource.

6. Add the ability to CHANGE any specified highlight color/style to any other specified highlight color/style within a given range (verses or pages) of a given Resource.

I believe that providing this "robust highlighting" will significantly improve our ability to take Notes as we study, without being burdened by excessive keystrokes.

Jim...

Nice list. I would add...

7. Add the ability to print the the markups from the bible window instead of needing to do your markup in a diagram document in order to print.

May the Lord bless you and keep you.

That's a good one, too, Daniel.  Might I suggest that that should become #1 on a different list ... having to do with markups?  I'm trying to start a list related to this thread, on highlights.

Here are a few more for the Highlights list:

7. Add the ability to circle the verse number, with one two or three concentric circles, and with different colors (ie to show the "importance" of the verse)

8. Add the ability to draw lines between highlighted words in the text to associate them with one another visually, with different line colors possible.

9. Add the ability to associate a "keyword" with a certain style/color of highlighting, and a different keyword with the palette that the highlight was drawn from - hovering over the highlight would pop up the major.minor keywords (palatte and color = major & minor).

Again, I'm sending these in to suggest@logos.com, so that they get "voted".  If you like them, please repeat that process.

Btw ... I am in process of composing a comprehensive modification to the notes engine, which will draw upon these highlighting features, especially #9 above.

I would concur - because the Tablet PC can do most of these (not all) I would like to see the support for the Tablet PC be a part of the Libronix engine - doubt it will happen, but if I don't ask, I know the answer.

Yours because Hisk,

Floyd

What about this web page information on Libronix and TabletPC? I think version 4 will go even further. Just my opinion.

I played around with the TabletPC extensions mentioned here - but found them to be clumbsy in the way I like to work.  I am afraid that many of our personally built tools will go away once we move to Version 4 and beyond it s use of .NET as a foundation.  I expect that the API will need to be updated for the new software.  Hope I am wrong - just have to wait and see.

I tried renaming the folder which "turned off" the highlight, but how do I get Logos to recognize it when I want it "turned on" again?  Do I have to change it back to its original name?

Thanks,

Ron
