Logos 5: Back and Forward Keystrokes

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

Navigating in Logos 5

Sometimes we need to retrace our steps in Logos. For example, perhaps Nave’s Topical Bible is open to an article on sanctification, and we jump to the entry on holiness. (A)

Now we want to return to the previous article. No worries. We can use the back and forward arrows in the upper-right-hand corner to relive our local history in this panel. (B)

Our reports created with guides, however, present a different challenge. Imagine we generated an Exegetical Guide report for Ephesians 3.17. (C)

Now, we create a report for Galatians 2.20. (D)

For whatever reason, we want to return to the Ephesians 3.17 report. You’ll notice that there are no back and forward arrows on the Exegetical Guide panel. Again, no worries. Our guides still keep track of the local history; we just have to access it with these keystrokes:

PC
Back: Alt + left arrow
Forward: Alt + right arrow

Mac
Back: Cmd + left bracket
Forward: Cmd + right bracket

In other words, in the above example, while in the Galatians 2:20 report, press Alt + left arrow or Cmd + left bracket and you’ll return to the Ephesians 3.17 report!

    As far as I’ve been able to figure out, this is impossible to do with a Swedish keyboard.
