Creating new colors or using too many different colored highlights may get confusing.


Some Bible expert users, use highlighting only occasionally, and use only yellow for their highlights, and reserve other colors for notes and bookmarks.


If you are trying to highlight in the MSG version you will get a group of verses. The MSG Bible has verse groups rather than individual verses.
