As I have followed the discussion on community highlighting I started wondering how useful this would be in Bibles if/when it is implemented there. For instance anyone looking at my ESV in Logos would be overwhelmed by a rainbow of color and a plethora of symbols. I teach a SS class from my iPad and instead of lecture notes, I use highlighting to remind me of the points in scripture that I want to cover. The colors don't necessarily mean anything, but they break words and sentences up so that my eye can quickly pick them out. So basically, I highlight everything and those highlights would be meaningless to anyone else. Now if you get a few more people who follow this practice then that would really skew the community highlights.

I think the issue you described is one of the reasons the feature isn't implemented in Bibles. On the other hand, the feature is supposed to be dynamic… resources with more highlights have a higher threshold than ones with fewer highlights.

Terry ... I don't want to seem critical or anything, but KSFJ has ALREADY received the 2012 award for 'Most Beautiful Highlighting' of the Bible. Now, of course you can compete next year.

I'm just joking, but you and KSFJ illustrate that highlighting in Logos is pretty colorful and useful (certainly not your grandparents' leaky pen that bled through the paper).

Now the community highlights wouldn't show the results from our VFs would they? 

 

Nice work Dominic, but  a little too busy for me to teach from Wink
