A Logos user recently emailed the following scenario to me:
I use several study Bibles in my biblical research. What’s the best way to add them as a group to a custom Guide?
Excellent question! And below are the steps to accomplish what he wants.
First, create a Collection of study Bibles:
- Choose Tools | Collections
- Name the Collection something like Study Bibles (A)
- Place this in the Rule box: type:notes (B)
- Notice the study Bibles are placed in the Resulting Collection list (C)
- Close the Collections panel
Next, add the study Bibles to a custom Guide:
- Choose Guides | Make a new guide template (D) (please note if you already have a custom Guide then right click on the Guide (E) and select Edit guide template (F))
- Name the Guide anything you like such as My Guide (G)
- Select Bible reference from the Template type drop down list (H)
- Select Commentaries from the Individual Sections on the left (I)
- Select Study Bibles from the Collection drop down list on the right (J)
- Close the Guide editor (K)
Now, it’s time to enjoy the fruits of your labor:
- Choose Guides |”Your Custom Guide”
- Type a reference in the box such as John 1:1 (L)
- Press the Enter key to generate the report
- Notice all of your study Bibles in one section in the Guide (M)
- Click a study Bible(N) to open it right to your passage. (O)
