I use NKJV version pretty extensively and that is where all of my highlights and notes are attached. I'm studying in a community that uses NIV. If I switch over to NIV, will all the highlights and notes that I have attached to my NKJV sync overto NIV and if not, is it possible to do so? Thanks for responding and Blessings!!

Hi Charles - and welcome to the forums

Charles Shinn:

Highlights are specific to a particular version and will not be visible in another version (one of the issues here is that different translations use different versification schemes and so mapping highlights could be a challenge)

Notes will be visible in any version so long as they have been created "by reference". Those which have been created "by selection" won't be visible for similar reasons as the highlight comments above

Hope this helps - even if it isn't the answer you were looking for

If you own both the NIV (2011) and NKJV interlinear versions you could start making a visual filter for the Hebrew and Greek text. This will also work for the other interlinear versions.

Hope this helps - even if it isn't the answer you were looking for

Thanks very much, Graham.  Nope, not the answer I was looking for but it is the one that I expected.  Could you give me a little more information on what you mean regarding notes created "by reference"?  Thanks much...

When you create a note on the iPad (for example) you have the option of choosing selection or reference.

Selection works for a block of text whereas reference in on a verse / passage and is indicated by a small icon at the beginning of the range.

Sorry I can't post any screenshots just at the moment.

Which platform are you working on?
