Quote List Generated From Highlights

One of my favorite features of the kindle is the ability to go to kindle.amazon.com after I finish a book and get a text file with all the hightlights that I made. It basically provides me a one-stop shop to review contents of the book.

I am currently able to do this with Logos by jumping to the next highlight and working my way through the book. (Thank you for implementing my suggestion on this a few years ago). I like this way of doing it because I get the quotes in their context.

But I think it would be beneficial to create something like a passage list (but call it a quote list) automatically generated from all highlights within a book, a collection of books, or by an author. Additionally it would be nice to be able to have all highlighted text appear or perhaps just a highlight of a certain style.

        Organizing and sorting by color is a must. Please improve the note taking and organizing capability.

        This is a good idea, but I'd also like to gather all my highlights of a particular kind (like "red highlighter") across all resources and put them into one place. Currently this is only possible with some obscure search code that I have to keep looking up to use.

        While logos is amazing, it's greatly disappointing that this feature doesn't exist. Word, Acrobat, Kindle all can do this. Logos highlights must already be saved to the cloud because when i open a logos resource on a different device, my previous highlights appear. If that's the case, it shouldn't take much to just collate them into one place for the user to access, like the Kindle site does. This is indispensable for writing papers. I tried exporting the document to a .pdf file and the highlights do show up but acrobat doesn't recognize them as comments. I also can't find a way in logos 5 to send a highlighted sentence to a clippings document or notes document. It only sends the one word i click on. As of now, i haven't found a way to send my highlights en masse to a rough draft. Quite frustrating

        Logos 6 has nearly got there but I really think most people want to see their note and quotes together. We still don't have a view that shows both...

      • Anthony IngramAnthony Ingram commented  · 

        There is a way to view all quotes in Logos 6 by right clicking on a highlight, clicking "open annotation" and then selecting "quotes" in the view option... This however opens all highlights from all books, and there is not way to do anything with the list except click to open the resource to that highlight. What I want is for Logos to make an option to view the highlights from a single resource as it's own note or clippings style page, with the ability to export to PDF or Word docs, etc.

        Yes, and let us put searchable data fields on this such as searching by "word", "passage", "topic", or "resource." This would be hugely helpful. As it is right now, the highlight function, note function, and clippings function does aspects of what we are looking for ... but to have a function entirely dedicated to quotes for sermon illustrations which we can pull form our library through a simple search would be a massive help.

        Love this idea. Would like to be able to see a pane of highlights from a particular book as well as a pane to see ALL my highlights. Then add better search features to search my highlights (word, words, passage, and topic). Essentially what this would create is a self-created quote list for sermon and teaching prep. Would also like this to show up in the "Passage Guide" when it opens.

        Excellent idea. Kindle does this, as does Goodreader.

        John Goodman, I can't find how to do this. Can you help me out?

      • John GoodmanJohn Goodman commented  · 

        I think this has now been done in Logos 6 with the quotes view in notes?

      • AnonymousAnonymous commented  · 

        Making a "Clippings" page helps somewhat...groups quotes together. But I agree that it would be very nice if we could just highlight and then see another screen where all of our highlights for a particular book (or all of them combined...both would be best!) all together. Right now, on the ipad, I don't believe you can make a clippings page at all. That could be helpful too. Tom Beetham

        Yes please add a way to view a summary of notes/highlights within the app or by going to a website similar to kindle.amazon.com
