How to Highlight Passages Across Multiple Bibles


I recently blogged about highlighting and note files which generated a few questions like this:

How can I highlight text in one Bible and have those highlights show up in other Bibles?

Until recently that ability didn’t exist, but you’ll be happy to know it’s currently available in Logos Now That feature, Corresponding Notes and Highlights, works like this:

  • Choose Tools | Highlighting
  • Open an original language Bible or an English Bible with the reverse interlinear option (A)
  • Select any text in the Bible (B)
  • Select a Highlighting style to mark up the selected text (C)


  • Open another original language Bible or an English Bible with the reverse interlinear option (D)
  • Click the Visual Filter’s icon on the Bible’s toolbar (E)
  • Select the Resource box (F)
  • Select the Corresponding Notes and Highlights box (G)
  • Select the desired Note file(s) box(es) containing the Highlighting notes (H)


  • Notice Logos automatically highlights the corresponding selection in this Bible (I)


Logos is able to highlight corresponding text through the power of the interlinear option present in many, but not all, English Bibles.
