Learning Logos: How to Create a Hyperlink in a Note

A fellow Logos user recently submitted this scenario:

I enjoy working with Logos 8 Notes. I often copy text from a resource and paste it into a Note. Sometimes, however, the information is too long, so I want to link back to the article rather than paste any text into the Note. Can this be done? If so, how?

Yes! In Notes, we can create a hyperlink to most any location in Logos, such as a resource article, Exegetical Guide report, Search results, etc.

Give this a go:

  • Open a panel to a location to which you want to link. (Please remember as stated above, this can be most anything in Logos such as a resource, Guide or Factbook report, Search results, etc.) (A)
  • Click the Panel menu (three dots) in the upper-right of that panel (B)
  • Select Copy location as URL (make sure to click URL(C)
  • Close that panel
  • Open Notes from the Tools menu
  • Navigate to the desired Note in which the hyperlink will be placed
  • Type the text in the Note which will be hyperlinked to the Logos location such as Click Here for Exegetical Guide Report (D)
  • Select (highlight) the text you just typed (E)
  • Click the Link (chain link) icon on the Note toolbar (F)
  • Right-click in the box that appears (G)
  • Select Paste (H)

  • Notice Logos places in the box “directions” back to your desired location (I)
  • Click Save (J)

  • Click the newly hyperlinked text (K) to jump to your desired Logos location! (L)

This is a great power-user trick so you can easily return to previous research without having to redo the research!

  • Thanks for the post on hyperlinking in Notes. Is it possible to link to a file on my computer – i.e. a Word document or a PDF file? That would be helpful – if is available in the software. Thanks.

    • Hi Dale! Thanks for your comment and question. It is not currently possible to link to a file like a Word doc or PDF file on your computer. However, I’ll pass that idea on to the team! Thanks again, Karen

      • Would it work by converting a Word doc to a personal book and linking that way?

        I don’t think that would work for PDFs because I don’t think they can be converted to personal books, although you might be able to open it in Word and save it as a Word file; it will usually lose a lot in the process, though.

        • Hi Karl!

          Thanks for your comment. Yes, that would definitely work! and you are correct about PDF’s not working with personal books.

          Best, Karen

  • Thanks for your response and for forwarding the request to the development team. It seems that this feature would add a nice functionality to the software. I would certainly use it. Dale.
