Interesting article by Mark Ward:
I could not find a way to get a picture in the comments section, so brought the comments to CD to get input from others.
My comment would have been:
Different ships, different long splices...
For heavy highlighters like moi, modified rule of thirds:
In the example above to the right, I started with:
Bird, M. F. (2013). Evangelical Theology: A Biblical and Systematic Introduction. Grand Rapids, MI: Zondervan.
On the left I came across and opened an unlikely resource that talks about Jesus' theology (have been looking for this for a long time):
Goldsworthy, G. (2000). Preaching the Whole Bible as Christian Scripture: The Application of Biblical Theology to Expository Preaching. Grand Rapids, MI; Cambridge: William B. Eerdmans Publishing Company.
So when I come across footnotes to books I have, I open them, or do searches for concepts found in the reading of the resources.
Since I am a heavy highlighter, I decided to put the palette in the center so is easy to access regardless of the side I am working on.
Feel free to share with us your workflow, some good resources you have found, and the layout you use in your screen.

That is a good post. You have some Interesting layout ideas. I have many layouts, some messy, some clean, but often as not just make them up from scratch. I prefer no more than 2 wide and no more than 4-5 tabs per panel.
Do you use keyboard shortcuts for highlighting? I find that with my top highlights mapped to shortcuts, I don't often have the highlight palette open.

I use the layout depicted very much, because I highlight a lot. I do not use keyboard shortcuts, I will look into that.
I use yellow for general interesting and significant, purple for key God concepts, green for principles that are specially important, red for sin error etc., orange for practical implications.
The system is not very sophisticated, and is done with the purpose of maybe searching using highlights:
In a future then I will try to search topically and pass the info to Nota Bene using
Eventually my goal is to have what God, Jesus, the Apostles, trusted leaders in christianity, etc. have said wrt a particular thrust, theme or topic. Also how the principles have been put to praxis in real life.
For further reference:
Hope this helps. Peace and grace.

Shortcuts work great for highlighting. For example, map "R" to Red. Select text, and tap "R." Done! As you can see below I have mapped several highlighters to keys.
Here is how:
