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 seminars and provides many training materials.
If you’ve been to Camp Logos before you know that I’m a big fan of the right click menu. If you haven’t been then I encourage you to open a Bible in Logos and start right clicking. You can access many powerful features through this context sensitive menu that appears when you right click on a word. This shortcut menu is especially helpful for searching. You can search for English words and phrases, Hebrew and Greek lemmas, references and more with the right click menu. You’ll notice, though, each time you execute a right mouse search you open a separate search panel. Generate five searches and get five search panels. It doesn’t take long to slow down your study as you try to navigate through all these search panels on the screen. Here’s how to avoid that:
- Close all but one search panel
- Choose the panel menu on that one search panel (A).
- Select Send searches here (B).
- Notice Logos places a target on the search panel menu (C).
Now when you generate a right mouse search, the current search results will be removed and the new search hits will take their place!
If you need to get back to a previous search just click the Search History icon to the right of the search box.
This is but one of the numerous shortcuts contained on the New Time Saving Tips Volume 2 that Logos just posted as a Pre-pub.
The more shortcuts you use, the more streamlined your Bible study with Logos becomes. Most of these shortcuts come right out of my own personal use of the software.
You can read all about this new video training and place your order at the Logos website.
