Logos 4: Open Files from the Command Box

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.


On the File menu in Logos you can create all sorts of documents: Notes, Visual Filters, Prayer Lists, etc. After a while you will have a long list of documents on the File menu so finding the one you want to open may be challenging. Here is but one way among many to quickly open a document from the long list:

  • Let’s say you created a Passage List called Adoption Verses
  • In the Command box type Open Adoption
  • Click Open Passage List named Adoption Verses from the drop down list of commands

The document opens without your ever having to go to the File menu!

What file type do you commonly use? Leave us a comment and let us know!

    Thanks Morris, this will really be a big time-saver when looking for one of my growing stash of Notes or Clippings which I use frequently. They are particularly useful for keeping all my thoughts, pondering’s and collated (cut & pasted!) notes organized. And I didn’t know that this neat function was even available!!

    I use mostly note files…I have LOTS of them…I hear people complaining about the notes system in L4, but I find them to be extremely useful and versatile. I also make a clippings file for all the books I use L4 to read.

    Does Logos contain a list of “features”? For example, quite by accident I came accross the blog feature. It contains helpful information that was unknown to me. I’ll use this regularly. Thanks.
