Logos 4: Place Menu Features on the Shortcuts Bar

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.

Do you find yourself going to same menu to open the same feature over and over again? If so, then you may want to take advantage of the Shortcuts bar, the empty section just to the right of the Command bar. There you can place icons to quickly open your favorite Logos features. Here’s all you do:

  • Choose one of the menus
  • Drag and drop a feature from the menu to the Shortcuts bar
  • Logos will automatically place an icon on the Shortcuts bar

Now just click the icon to open that feature!

  3. Or, you can drag any resource from the Library to there, for instant access to any favorite resource.

  4. Jerry Bush says:

    Thank you Morris, for all your tips. See you in St. Louis this Thursday!

  5. Padre Dave Poedel says:

    I can get that to work on my Windows desktop, but not with the Mac. Since I found this tip on the Mac homepage for Logos 4, I must be doing something wrong. Any thoughts?

  6. Lorin Sanderson says:

    Can we go back to an earlier date and re-capture the home page “newspaper” articles from two or three weeks ago?

  7. And, a new Logos Wiki page (put up by Steve Clark, I believe) shows a LOT of things you can with the Shortcuts Bar –

  8. Hi Dave,
    At this time the Windows and Mac versions are not always going to be equivalent as the Mac version is still in the Alpha stages. Please see our Mac disclaimer for more details.

  9. Hi Lorin,
    Since the Home Page delivers new content daily, there is no way to recall previously posted content at a later time. If you are wanting to preserve text from a posted article in the future, your options are either to copy and paste the content into a word document, or to take a screenshot of that day’s home page. It just depends on your reasons for wanting to archive the content.
    I have seen to it to send in your request for such functionality to suggest@logos.com where our developers are continually looking for ways to improve Logos 4. Feel free to send future ideas directly to suggest@logos.com as well.
