Factbook Updates and FREE Factbook Training

man on computer

Logos 9 released 6 weeks ago bringing with it a new and expanded Factbook, allowing us to study more topics, themes, and texts. In the continued effort to improve this tool, Logos 9.1 contains even more Factbook updates, which I’ll briefly discuss in this blog:

Toolbar icon

To make the Factbook more prominent and easier to open, notice the new Factbook icon to the right of the Library icon (A)­

Keyboard shortcut

If you enjoy keyboard shortcuts then here’s how to open the Factbook:

PC: Alt + K

Mac: Cmd + Opt + K

Collapse All

Here’s my personal favorite new addition to the Factbook. You can now easily collapse all the sections in an article:

  • Generate a Factbook article for any subject you like
  • Rest the cursor on any section title bar (B)
  • Click the 3-dot icon (C)
  • Select Collapse All (D)

When you’re ready to work with any section, just click its title bar to expand it. Also, the way you close the Factbook is the way it opens next time, so don’t forget to collapse all the sections before you close it.

Media context menu

You can also now easily export images right from the Media section without opening the Media Tool:

  • Generate an article for the place Bethlehem (E)
  • Expand the Media section (F)
  • Right-click on an image (G)
  • Notice the new context menu containing various export options (H)

Again for emphasis, these changes occur in Logos 9.1, due to release Tuesday, December 8!

I also want to invite you to join me for a FREE 45-minute training webinar focusing exclusively on the new Factbook. The original broadcast will be on December 8 at 2:00 p.m. (CST). You can register for FREE here.

If you can’t make this time slot, please register anyway, and we’ll send you instructions on how to watch the webinar any time you like.

  • “ If you can’t make this time slot, please register anyway, and we’ll send you instructions on how to watch the webinar any time you like.”

    I’ve registered for many of these webinars, but because of time difference (I’m in Australia) I often miss the live presentation.

    Many times have I waited in vain to receive instructions to view the recording. Many times have I requested a link, but with never a reply.

    I don’t really understand why I am treated like this, given the promise made in the quotation.

    “If you can’t make this time slot, please register anyway, and we’ll send you instructions on how to watch the webinar any time you like.”

    • Hi, Will, here’s what has worked for me: when you register, you get a confirmation email with the webinar link. After the webinar, click the link in that email, and it will redirect to the recording.

      This Q&A on Morris’s website confirms that’s how it should work:
      Q: How can I rewatch the webinar?
      A: If you have trouble during this webinar, don’t panic! Keep in mind that the original link sent to you will convert to a replay link after the webinar has concluded.

      Hope that helps!

      • I am in Australia and can confirm that what Mary says works and this is how I have watched the free seminars on a number of occasions, including this one about the new Factbook.
