    Is there a way to transfer all of your highlighting from one Bible translation to another?
    1. while reading or studying my bible through logos, I find others highlights or rather and indication they have highlighted a passage, is there a way I can turn this off? Thank you in advance Kevin
      1. , that's the popular highlights feature, which can be turned off per resources or across all resources. Look for it in the visual filters menu, the three circles stacked like a triangle at the top left of the resource panel's toolbar.

      Can I merge 2 highlighting styles in one style? I accidentally created two styles and used both of them to highlight. Now I want them to be under one style
      1. Is there anyway to duplicate the Highlighting window? I am creating a very extensive highlighting system and created several pallets. ex 12 Tribes pallet - Nations pallet. When I am highlighting or choosing a highlight in the Visual filters...... I am scrolling...scrolling.....scrolling on the river!!!!! Also I know you can collapse the pallets in the highlighting window.....However that doesn't seem to be an option when choosing a highlight in Visual Filters. Anyone have any ideas for any of this?
        1. Hi! I'm mostly new to Logos and and am going through the Help Center videos and articles. I would love to rename the already existing highlighters. But when I right click on the highlighter, I'm not able to select anything on the menu that pops up.
          1. Did you find a way to rename the highlighters? That would be a great improvement.
          2. I think if these existing highight styles are in a palette created by Logos that come with the software, you need to duplicate the whole palette housing the highlight you want to rename and then you can can right click on the style in the duplicated palette and rename it. Of course that means you will have a second palette such as solid colors in you palette menu. I hope that makes sense.
          3. You cannot duplicate or move a style from a palette created by logos. I think the only way is to duplicate the palette. After renaming the style in the duplicate palette, you can then move it to another palette that you have created. Then I suppose if you no longer need the duplicate palette, you can delete it.
        2. How can my friend make his custom highlighting palette of Genesis public so I can use it?
          1. As I just mentioned, I have lost all highlighting in all resources. I have made sure that the highlight options are checked under the "visual filters" icon. I also can create new highlighting. This is a real problem because I had a lot of highlighted passages!!!! Please help!!
            1. I have lost all highlighting in all my Bibles. I have tried choosing previous layouts, but even those no longer show any highlights. Any ideas?
              1. Thanks! I'll give it a try!
              2. Hi Adam! Well, I've tried your sugguestion, but no luck. From what I did find it looks like the highlights disappered around the middle of November. I only showed 77 deleted notes, so I restored all of them.. but that did not restore the highlights. I have double checked the Visual Filters settings - they look right. Additional suggestions?
              3. Sorry, those are the obvious/easy fixes I can think of. Sounds like it would be best to get in touch with Support. https://www.logos.com/contact-support
            2. I have created pallets and styles to go with those pallets, but they are not showing up under the Visual Filters menu. Visual filters is checked and expanded, but there is nothing showing under that menu. Please help!
              1. Visual filters is something different than selecting to show the highlights you have made in your resource. To see those, you need to go to the same menu option as visual filters but before you get to the bottom you will see Notes and Highlights. Then click the box next to it and check all the boxes nestled underneath it. Unless you have selected a folder to contain particular highlights, you probably do not know where the highlights you used are located. By selecting all the boxes under notes and highlights, your highlights should show up.
            3. I upgraded to Logos 10. Soon after, I discovered the image options in the Highlighter tool. Now, several days later, the image options are gone. How do I get them back?
