Learning Logos: Notes Filtering and Inline Searching

Logos 8 morris proctor training

Imagine this scenario:

You highlight important points as you read through a Logos resource. Then after completing the book, you say to yourself, I need to find the highlighted text that discusses the glory of God.

With the recent release of Logos 8.8, we can now accomplish that feat right within the book, because Inline Searching now intersects with Notes filtering!

Please follow along as I walk you through this example.

For the sake of ease, I have already highlighted text in the daily devotional My Utmost for His Highest and opened the resource in the following images.

So I’ll now:

  • Click the Sidebar icon to toggle it on (A)
  • Click the Notes icon in the Sidebar (B)
  • Select Sentence from the Context Selector (C)
  • Select the filter Highlights in the Sidebar (D)
  • Notice now only the highlighted text is visible on the right (E)
  • Click the Inline Search icon on the resource’s toolbar (F)
  • Type “glory of God” in the Search box (G)

  • Press the Enter key to display 1 result (H)

As you can easily see, only the highlighted text was being searched in the resource!

This new feature works in any Logos resource: Bible, commentary, theology book, you name it!

This feature was added in a recent Logos update.

  1. This is oh so close to what I need to do… a simple bookmark for a location that I can easily come back to.

    I have a highlight called I’m Here that has a bookmark image. I can select a word, apply that highlight and my bookmark image shows where I want.

    But I can’t find out how to get to my bookmarks. I do most – if not all – my reading on mobile. I see that I can save a favorite in my book to get back to the general area and then look for my bookmark. But boy that’s a lot of steps to bookmark a location.

    I love Logos but wouldn’t it be nice to bookmark places in my books to come back to certain spots?

  2. It appears not every resource has the sentence-level coding. I tried this in Walton’s Genesis 1 as Ancient Cosmology, and “article” is the only level available.
