How to Save Bible Search Results to a Note File

save bible search results to note file logos

Recently, a Logos user emailed the following scenario to me:

I executed a Bible Search. How do I copy/paste all of the verses, which appear in the search results, into a note file?

Excellent question! To discover a solution, let’s carefully walk through a specific example:

  • Open a Notes document (A)
  • Make sure the notes view is NOT set to Quotes (B)


  • Click the Search icon in the upper left of the program
  • Select Bible as the search type (C)
  • Select a verse range to search, such as New Testament, from the drop down list (D)
  • Select a Bible to search, such as the ESV, from the drop down list (E)
  • Type a search query, such as inheritance, in the Find box (F)
  • Press the Enter key to generate the search results (G)


  • Choose the Search panel menu (H)
  • Select Save as Passage List (I)


  • Notice all of the verses in the Passage List are probably automatically selected (if not, select all of the verses or just the ones you wish to copy) (J)
  • Right click on the selected verses in the Passage List (K)
  • Select Copy (L)


  • Right click in a Content box in the Notes document (M)
  • Select Paste (N)


  • Notice all of the verses now appear in the Notes document (O)

    This post was great. Logos just keeps getting better and better.

  2. Can you carry out the steps illustrated in basic mode. I tried but didn’t work

  3. Jim Clabaugh says

    Creating a note and pasting into it seems random. How can I sort all the individual posts in a note file either by date of the post or bible reference verse? When I’m studying, I want to retain the order of my study, not have the posts be random with no sequence.
