Applying Highlights to a Resource

We can use Logos to highlight important passages in any Logos resource, just like a paper book. Logos comes with several pre-built Style Palettes to choose from: Solid Colors, Emphasis Markup, Highlighter Pens and Inductive.

  • Open the resource you want to highlight.
  • Go to Tools > Highlighting to open the Highlighting panel.
  • Click on a palette to view the styles it contains.
  • Select text in a resource and click a style to apply it.

Tip: Shortcuts
Right-click a style to assign a shortcut key, then press that key to quickly apply the style in resources.
Highlight the wrong passage? Quickly erase a highlight from a passage by selecting it and pressing CTRL+SHIFT+K (Mac: Command+SHIFT+K).

Adding Notes to Highlights

Each palette is also a Notes Document, which means we can add notes to a highlight.

  • Click the "Documents" menu.
  • Open the Highlighter Palette document.
    Appears as a "Note".
  • Enter notes in the "Content" area of the note.

Tip: Deleting Palettes
We should keep in mind that because palettes are documents, they can be deleted from the "Documents" menu, just like other Logos documents. If you delete a highlighter palette, all styles from that palette will also be deleted.

New Palettes & Styles

To create a new style palette, click "New Palette" at the top of the Highlighting panel and give it a name.

Hover over a Palette title and click the button to add a "New Style".

The Style Editor will open. Name the Untitled style, and customize its appearance using the options below the preview.

Keep in mind, style changes are not finite, so feel free to experiment with several options. We can always return to the style editor later, by right-clicking any created style and choosing "Edit" from the menu.

Note: Only custom styles can be edited.
