How to Seamlessly Consolidate Your Logos 8 Notebooks

Questions regarding the new Logos 8 Notes tool continue to come in so I’ll use this weekly training blog to address some of them. Here’s a recent question:

My Logos 7 Notes documents imported into Logos 8 as Notebooks. Is there a way to consolidate multiple Notebooks?

In other words, can we simultaneously move multiple Notes from one Notebook to another?

Thankfully we can.

  • Choose Tools | Content | Notes
  • Click the Sidebar icon in the upper left of the Notes panel to toggle on the Sidebar (A)
  • Click the Notebooks icon in the Sidebar (B)
  • Select a Notebook containing the Notes you want to move to a different Notebook (C)
  • Notice the Notes list pane display all of the Notes in that Notebook (D)

  • Select the first Note in the Notes list pane (E)
  • Hold down the Shift key
  • Select the last Note in the Notes list pane (F)
  • Notice all of the Notes in the Notes list pane are now selected (G)

  • Notice the pane on the right changes so that global changes can be made to the selected Notes (H)
  • Click the Notebook drop down list (I)
  • Select the desired Notebook in which to move the selected Notes (J)
  • Repeat the above steps to move additional Notes to this Notebook

After you move the selected Notes to the new Notebook location, you can delete the Notebooks that are no longer being used.

Please underscore that the new Notes tool appears in all Logos 8 features sets.
