A Logos user recently emailed me the following question:

I highlight various verses in my Bible. Is there a way to place those highlighted verses in some sort of list?

You’ll be happy to know that the answer is yes! Here’s how to do it:

  • Open a Bible.
  • Choose Tools | Highlighting.
  • Select the text of a Bible verse (A).
  • Click a highlighting style, such as Blue Highlighter (B).

Synonyms of the New Testament Is Now a Lexicon

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.

We recently made a small change that resulted in a big impact for Greek word study: we changed the classification of Synonyms of the New Testament from monograph to lexicon. Maybe some of you are tempted to ask, “So what?”

I’ll walk you through a practical example that’s now possible because of the switch.

  • Open the Logos library.
  • Select Prioritize (A).
  • Type this in Find box: author:trench (B).
  • Notice this resource in the list: Synonyms of the New Testament (C) (currently present in Logos 5 Silver and above).  
  • Drag it to the Prefer these resources list on the right (D), making sure it’s one of the top five Greek dictionaries in the list.  
  • Close the Logos library.



  • Open an English Bible containing the reverse interlinear feature, such as the ESV, LEB, or NASB.

Logos 5: Use History to Retrace Your Steps

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.

I wish I had a nickel for every time I’ve been asked a question similar to this:

I accidently closed a panel. How can I quickly return to it?

You’ll be happy to know that Logos keeps a running list of all the places you visit, neatly organized in a panel called History. So if you find yourself needing to return to a previous location, here’s all you do:

  • Choose Tools | History
  • Click the desired location from the list—you’ll jump to it instantly! (A)

History

If you’re always closing panels by mistake,  just leave the History panel open. As you visit new locations in Logos, they’ll appear at the top of the History list!

Logos 5: Shortcut for Update Active Layout

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.

In most of my Monday posts, I try to encourage new Logos users with features that more seasoned users may have already discovered. Today, however, I want to pass along a time-saving shortcut that’s applicable if you’ve already discovered the benefit of layouts. So if you’re already on your way to being a power user, this is for you.

If you employ layouts, you know that when changes are made to the active layout, you must update the layout in order for those changes to be saved. This normally requires going to the Layouts menu and selecting an update link. Instead, try this update shortcut:

  • Type this text in the Command box: update active layout (A).

Logos 5: Save a Guide for Future Study

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.

Has this ever happened to you? As you’re reading a book, you come across a topic you’d like to investigate further for personal study or a future message, but you just don’t have time for it right now. So you make a mental note to return to that subject in the coming days or weeks. Unfortunately, when time does allow for the study, you’ve already forgotten what the topic was to begin with. I confess this happens to me more times than I care to admit.

If you can relate, try this helpful hint:

  • Open a Logos resource to a specific location such as Alone with God to page 43 (A).
  • Notice the word justification in the second paragraph on this page (B).

Logos 5: A Moving Reverse Interlinear Pane

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.

The reverse interlinear is, in my humble opinion, one of Logos’ greatest contributions to modern Bible study. This feature, which connects a Bible’s English translation to its original text, allows us to investigate Greek and Hebrew words even if we don’t have original-language training.

With the recent release of Logos Bible Software 5.1, a small enhancement made the reverse interlinear even better. Here’s how to use it:

  • Open an English Bible containing the reverse interlinear option, such as the ESV, LEB, NKJV, or NASB.
  • Click the Interlinear icon on the Bible’s toolbar to open the reverse interlinear pane at the bottom of the panel (A).
  • Navigate to a location in the Bible, such as Colossians 3:16 (B).
  • Click a word in the biblical text, such as dwell (ESV) (C).
  • Notice that the reverse interlinear pane jumps to that word (D).
  • Continue Reading…

Logos 5: Image Search

Logos 5: Home Page Topic Study

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.

With the recent release of Logos 5.1 comes a new automatic layout, making it easy to study a topic right from the Home Page. Give this a try and see what you think:

  • Open the Home Page.
  • Type a subject, like mercy, in the Passage/Topic box (A).
  • Notice the related subjects in the dropdown list (B).
  • Select Mercy from the list, or just click Go (C).

Logos now opens what I call the “default Home Page topic study screen.” Continue Reading…
