Visual Filter Types
- Resource — Highlights features based on data embedded in the resource. This includes basic features such as page numbers, chapters, and verses. Use this visual filter to help best navigate your resource.
- Community Notes — Displays community note icon for notes posted in your Faithlife.com groups. Use this visual filter to engage in meaningful study and conversation in community.
- Media — Displays media icons when media exists for the text. Use this to quickly create meaning slides for a sermon or social media posts.
- Corresponding Notes and Highlights — Displays notes and highlights you’ve made in other resources. Use this filter to display a note or highlight made on the same passage but in a different bible.
