Logos 4: Display Bible Text in List Form

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.

You’ve probably noticed that most Bibles are printed in paragraph form. This is great for reading, but when you’re studying the Bible verse-by-verse, those little verse numbers are sometimes hard to find. No worries. Logos allows us to display a Bible in list form with each verse starting on a separate line.

  • Open a Bible to a desired location
  • Click the Visual Filters icon (three circles) on the Bible’s toolbar
  • Select Bible Text Only

Instantly the Bible transitions to list form! This makes verse by verse study much easier.

Please take note, though, that in Bible Text Only mode, the cross references also disappear. In Bible Text Only mode, the emphasis is on verses only!


  1. Jerry Bush says:

    One of my favorite features in Logos, and I learned it from Morris at a Camp Logos!
    Seems like a little thing, but it really is handy. I usually have it text only, but I like being able to turn it on and off when needed.

  2. Philana Crouch says:

    Nice feature, it works on L4 Mac as well.

  3. Tim Warner says:

    So it’d be great to have some work camps down under. I love Logos but I am still coming to terms with Logos 4.
    I am in New Zealand at bible college doing a B Theol. I am learning to navigate the new interface but I bet there are ways and means that I haven’t learned.
    So if you ever have training in Australia or New Zealand, I’d love to be informed.

  4. Dr. Joshua Beckley says:

    I too, love Logos and I’m coming to terms with Logos 4 as well. But my question to the Logos guru’s is I’m thinking about getting an IPad, I was wondering how do I transfer my Logos 4 to it? Do I have to purchase another program or can I download my present Logos 4 with permission for free?
    Please let me know as soon as you can. Thanks!

  5. Hi Joshua,
    Our free Logos Bible Software App works on the iPad, so once you have your iPad in hand, you can download it from the iTunes app store.
    Once installed, open the app and sign in to your Logos account, and since you already have a Logos 4 base package, the app will automatically give you access to many of the titles in your library!
