Discovering Which Church Father You’re Reading

Tips & Tricks blog SetToday’s guest 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.

Have you ever had one of the volumes of the Early Church Fathers open and you have no idea which church father you’re reading? If you’ve never experienced this before, just open a volume to some random location and you’ll discover you’re lost in a sea of text!

Stay calm! A life saver is available. It’s called the Locator Pane.

On the resource’s toolbar, click the last icon on the right. The Locator Pane appears at the top of the text telling which church father you’re reading. This trick of course works for other books as well.

  1. Many times, you still can’t tell from the Locator Pane. You still have to go back to the title page of the volume.
    Is there any way that the developers can fix this? Possibly by placing the author’s name in the section or chapter title? Anything they could do to allow users to see the author’s name in the passage guide listing would be wonderful!
    Thanks for your tips!

  2. Hi Jim,
    Thanks for the suggestion. I have forwarded your request to where it will be read and considered for future updates. Please feel free to send any other suggestions there when you have ideas of how we could make Logos better. Thanks!
