How is everyone storing your highlights? Are you using book or study specific note files, or the universal note files that Logos created? Or both?

Personally, I view most highlighting as intrinsically tied to the resource itself, so I create a resource specific note file whenever I highlight. This could turn into a boondoggle, but I am hopeful that Logos will improve file management in the not-too-distant future. In my opinion, the default should be for highlights to go into a resource-specific note file, which is hidden by default, but can be retrieved easily enough when needed.

Mostly, I just let them go into the default—palette specific file. However, I recently created a special palette and note file for Discourse Grammar while I study that subject in a handful of Logos resources.

Here I have arranged the individual notes in a semi-outline. I also change the title to a meaningful summary of the highlighted text. Then I paste the highlighted text into the note content. When I add my own comments, I affix a note indicator. (The purple icons are manually created as heading markers which are taken from the primary resource).

I changed.

I started with a simple - default file - approach. Had (still have) serious problems with a large highlight/note file and that was with primarily the highlights being only in Bible reading. (Should have known based on large note file problems previously.)

I now have adopted the' by resource' (book) approach. Where I have a number of resources of similar type and don't expect radical highlighting (for instance NT Introduction books) I am combining these in a single file to keep the number of files reduced. I fully expect the number of highlight files to get unmanageable at some point, but hope that Logos provides a better mechanism to manage them by then. I figure it is better to solve the problem I have in the present and worry about the future problem when I get to it.

I'm using resource specific note files to store highlights in. I was previously sending everything to the default palette file, but thankfully caught it early enough that it wasn't too much work to split them out into separate files.

I have been using the default files, but I think I am going to try resource specific files. I mainly do book studies, and it make sense to store notes and highlights for a specific book in a file for that book alone. My only thoughts are are if in studying a book, I run across something in another book that I want to highlight. My thoughts are I will just start a specific note file for that book at that time.
