Logos 6.3 recently released so please make sure to download it if you haven’t already. Among its new features is a redesigned Library Resource Information pane which includes a link to save selected resources as a collection. This shortcut link makes quick work of creating specialty collections which is illustrated below with a Favorite Bibles collection.

  • Open the Library
  • Click the View icon (A)
  • Select your desired view from the drop down list (B)
  • Click the Resource Information (i) icon to open the pane on the right (C)
  • Type this rule in the Library’s Find box to primarily display English Bibles: type:Bible AND language:English (D)
  • Select your desired Bibles by holding down the Ctrl key on a PC or Cmd key on a Mac as you select each Bible (don’t click the title of the Bible which opens it) (E)
  • Click Save as Collection in the newly designed Resource Information pane (F)

  1. Cool! Thanks!

  2. The collections panel won't open. I highlights five Bibles but I can't save the collection.

  3. Jeffrey says:

    Hmm…doesn’t work for me either. Nothing happens after clicking on ‘save as collection’

  4. When I hit "save as collection," nothing happens. The same goes for when I hit "save as bibliography." Neat idea, though. Let me know if it is user error or programer error.

  5. Same problem here – nothing happens.

    Hi folks.

    We tried it out and are having the same problem. We’re looking into why this doesn’t appear to be working and will let you know when we find anything out.

    Thanks!

  7. Alan Uyenco Same here. Nothing happens when I click the Save Collection button.

  8. Ditto on the "nothing happens" scenario. I did manage to do the same thing by starting a new collection with the same rule, then removing by hand the Bibles I wanted to exclude. Also, the bottom section of this blog appears to be a remnant from a previous blog. No real complaints, though, as I'm a satisfied Logos Bible Software user since 1.6.

  9. same for me! i thought i was doing something wrong. everything ok until i hit save as collection!

  10. Worked like a charm for me.

  11. Bill Bienia says:

    Same for me. (I’m on Windows 8)

  12. Nothing happens when I go to save it
