How to create or delete a highlight on Windows Phone***

Last Updated: Feb 02, 2017 08:18PM CST

***AT THIS TIME THERE IS A KNOWN ISSUE OF  HIGHLIGHTS NOT BEING SEEN WHEN YOU RETURN TO THE PASSAGE IN THE READING PAGE

Highlighting a verse puts a color background on the verse and enables you to get back to that verse

Similar to highlighting in a paper Bible

  • the highlight will be visible the next time you encounter the verse in that Bible
  • it will only be visible in the version that you created it in
  • It is not  visible if you read the same verse in another Bible version
Syncing highlights to the server requires that you have a free YouVersion account.  Use the same account on all devices

Highlights are only available online

To create a highlight
  1. Open the Bible reading pane by tapping Bible in the main menu
  2. Scroll to and tap the verse(s) you want to highlight
  3. Tap the three dot settings icon in bottom menu
  4. Tap highlight verse(s)
  5. Scroll and tap the color for the highlight
  6. tap ok to confirm highlight
