How to Move a Logos Note from One File to Another

If you’ve been to Camp Logos, you know I’m a big cheerleader for saving research in Notes documents. I believe this is a convenient and secure way to archive insights into Scripture. In light of that, I was thrilled to receive the following question from a fellow Logos user:

A few months ago I wrote a note in Matthew 4:1 and I put it in my document of notes called “My Meditations.” Now I’m making a special study of this biblical text and I have created a new document of notes called “Study of the Temptations.”  

So my question is: How can I change the place where I keep this note? I want to change the note from “My Meditations” to “Study of the Temptations.”

Happily this is a very simple goal to achieve! Give this a go:

  • Open both the original (A) and new (B) Notes documents, arranging them on the screen so both are visible.
  • Make sure the Notes View is NOT set to Quotes in both documents (C).
  • Drag the note indicator from the original note file (D) and drop it in the new note file (E).

  • Notice the location of the note in now changed (F).

Please underscore that individual notes can only be moved one at a time. They can’t be grouped and moved together.

  1. Great information as always … I make sure my students are all aware of your weekly emails.
    Question: Is it possible to copy the note? I would think so!

    really informative articles thanks for sharing this

  3. If for some reason you want the note copied and not moved, hit ctrl-z and the original note will reappear in its original spot.
