Display Notes in Multiple Bibles

Of all of the Logos 8 features, I probably receive more questions about the Notes database than any other. Here’s one I’ve received several times:

When I anchor a note to a specific word in a specific Bible is it possible to display that note in other Bibles?

A feature known as Corresponding Notes and Highlights is what we need for this task.

For example, let’s say we anchor a note to the word gods in Psalm 82:1 in the ESV, but want that note to appear in the NASB which translates the Hebrew word rulers.

Give this a go:

  • Open the ESV to Psalms 82:1 and right click on the word gods (A)
  • Select from the left side of the menu Selection gods (B)
  • Expand on the right side of the menu the Take a note section (C)
  • Select the Notebook in which you want to place the note (D)
  • Type in the Note editor your desired text for the note such as: The Hebrew word here is elohim (E)
  • Rest the cursor on the note indicator in the ESV to see the note text (F)
  • Open the NASB to Psalm 82:1 (G)
  • Click the Visuals Filters icon on the NASB (H)
  • Expand and select the Notes and Highlights (Corresponding) box (I)
  • Select from the list the Notebook in which you placed the note (J)
  • Notice the note indicator now appears in the NASB next to the word rulers (K)

This feature is based on the underlining Hebrew and Greek texts, therefore, only works in our interlinear Bibles.
