Logos 5: Save as Passage List on Guides’ Sections

Today’s post is from Morris Proctor, certified and authorized trainer for Logos Bible Software. Morris, who has trained thousands of Logos users at his two-day Camp Logos seminars, provides many training materials.

Logos’ Bible study guides contain various individual sections, some of which display biblical references—for example, Cross References in the Passage Guide, Translation in Bible Word Study, Thematic Outlines in the Sermon Starter Guide, and Related Verses in the Topic Guide. With the release of Logos 5.2, now the verses in these sections can be easily saved in a Passage List document.

For example, try this:

  • Choose Guides | Passage Guide.
  • Type John 3:16 in the reference box (A).
  • Press Enter to generate the report.

  • Click the Cross References title bar if it’s not expanded. (When the section is expanded, it displays numerous cross-references for the passage you’re studying.) (B)

  • Right-click the Cross References title bar (C).
  • Select Save as Passage List (D).

  • Notice that a new Passage List document is created, containing all the verses in that individual section (E).

Of course, this new document can be renamed—when closed, it will be safely saved in the Documents menu!

Please note: if this feature is not available to you, type update now in the Command box and press Enter to launch your free update to Logos 5.2.

    Logos has done it again! If you have Logos, when you enter a Scripture in a guide where other Scriptures are referenced or listed, you can add them to a Passage List that becomes a document for later use.

    Either I'm missing something, or this does not work on Mac.

  3. Joe Godfrey says

    I figured it out! Just tap track pad with two fingers.

  4. Next step might be to export, but I cannot seem to find the way.
    How would I do that?

  5. Found it… This is GREAT.

    What would be the purpose or use for a passage guide of a cross reference? How are some of you using it?
