Logos 4: Quickly Open a Commentary

mp|seminars TipsToday’s post is from Morris Proctor, certified and authorized trainer for Logos Bible Software. Morris has trained thousands of Logos users at his two-day Camp Logos training seminars.

A lot of times we find ourselves just casually reading the Bible in Logos. We then come to a verse for which we need a little insight. We don’t want to run an in-depth Passage or Exegetical Guide; we just want to quickly view a commentary for our passage. Here’s how I set up Logos to accomplish this:

  • Open the Bible Knowledge Commentary (BKC)
  • Drag the tab of the BKC to the Shortcuts bar (the area to the right of the Command box)

Notice Logos places an icon of the BKC on the Shortcuts bar. Now when you’re reading in the Bible, click this icon to open the BKC to the same passage you’re reading!

Of course, you can substitute your favorite study Bible or commentary for the BKC. I suggest, however, using a commentary that covers the whole Bible, so it will always open to where you’re reading in the Bible.

Logos 4: Work Offline

Occasionally I’m asked, especially from people living in rural area without hi-speed internet access, Do I have to be online to use Logos Bible Software 4?

To clear up any confusion, the answer is no. All of your resources and files are housed on your local hard drive. You can work offline as much as you want. Here’s all you have to do:

  • Choose Tools | Program Settings
  • Set Use Internet to No

You’re now preventing Logos from accessing the internet. Of course, go back and set Use Internet to Yes in order for Logos to synchronize (backup) all of your files (notes, documents, and preferences) with the Logos server.
