Logos 4: Bookmark A Resource

mp|seminars Tips

Today’s post is from Morris Proctor, certified and authorized trainer for Logos Bible Software. Morris has trained thousands of Logos users at his two-day Camp Logos training seminars.

Recently someone e-mailed asking how to open a Logos e-book to the same location at which it was closed.

Well here’s some good news: Logos automatically does it for you.

For example, imaging reading J.I. Packer’s book Concise Theology. You just finished the article, Transfiguration, and closed the book. The next time you open the resource it will open to that exact spot which also begins the next article, Resurrection.

You can, however, also set a bookmark for any resource by utilizing one of the nine bookmark locations:

Open a resource to a desired locationPress Ctrl + Shift+ 1-9Then press Ctrl + 1-9 to open the bookmark

    Question about the bookmarks. When it says I can use one of 9 locations for bookmarks, is that the total number I have available, or do I have 9 per resource?

  2. I wish you could bookmark the iPhone app.

  3. Hi Rick,
    For the bookmarks, you are limited to nine total, not nine per resource. But as Morris points out, Logos 4 automatically bookmarks resources at the last point it was opened.
    Setting your own bookmarks in resources using the nine locations is great for opening to a specific spot in a resources you frequently use by using the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + (1-9).
    If the nine spots are not enough, you can also create a shortcut to a resource by dragging a dropping a title to the Shortcuts bar just right of the Command bar. This will create a tiny thumbnail of the book, so that one click will open the resource to the last spot it was opened.

  4. Nick,
    You can, it’s called Favorites.
    With a resource opened to a location you want to return to at a later time, swipe the screen from bottom to top and you will see Add to Favorites. Tap Add to Favorites and a Favorites window will appear. Tap Done at the top. Later, tap More . . . | Favorites from the navigation bar, and find the book’s title. Your book will open to the same location as when you saved it. Hope that helps!

  5. Is there a way to transfer the ebooks to my Nook ereader?

  6. Hi Jeff,
    I have not had the chance to use a Nook yet so I cannot tell you if this works or not, but I see that the Nook has wi-fi capabilities. Depending on how the Nook renders web pages, you may be able to access your Logos books by going to Library.Logos.com, and signing into your Logos.com account.
    Again, I say this not having had the ability to test it, but give it a try. You will not be able to save books locally on the Nook, but if it works, you can access your books while connected via wi-fi. I’m interested in what you find, so if possible, reply with your findings. Hope that helps!

    The only way to see resources on the Nook when not connected to the internet is to root the Nook and install the androis logos app. Once I realized I could to this I kicked myself for not rooting my Nook a year ago when I got it.
