I am using Logos 6 and would like to develop a consistent plan for marking up not only the Biblical text but also the other resources. For instance, I have created a Visual Filter that puts a single box around all singular pronouns (especially you) and a double box around plural pronouns (especially you) in my Bibles, Greek and Hebrew text. Very helpful.

But that means I do not want to use those highlights (the boxes) in another way to avoid confusion. Thus, just to use the yellow highlighter on all important, interesting, challenging material is not detailed enough for me.

So, I am wondering if someone has developed a plan/scheme that is consistent and helpful? Would love to hear what people say. Thanks

You should look into precepts ministries.

Back when Mo Proctor did his blog post about this, he compared the VF to those old-fashioned clear overlays you used to find in an anatomy book...the base layer was the bones, then one layer was the circulatory system, another the nervous system, etc. I remember being fascinated by those things in my World Book when I was a kid in the late 60s.

Needless to say, I was fascinated by the idea of making such overlays on the bible text using the VF feature. Alas, I was disappointed.

I have not found a way to do a *comprehensive* overlay like I wanted. I figured out how to do very simple stuff, like singular vs plural, active vs passive, etc. I tinkered with the superscript and subscript tools in the VF tool, adding letter abbreviations, so I could see these basic things. But fitting every possibility native to the Greek text wasn't possible.

One of the things the under-documented Logos software has suffered from (beyond the general under-documentation) is a shortage of good worked examples. I was hoping the FL groups would fix this, and they've helped. But there isn't nearly enough participation by creative, artsy people there to give us a broad set of choices in highlighter palettes, VF schemes, and the like.

So the bottom line is, you are probably your best source for a good consistent plan for markups. You'll be re-inventing the wheel a bit, but the rest of us have had to do that as well. I would encourage you to join a few of the FL groups and see what others have posted there...some good ideas exist, even if in short supply.

And if you are the one who comes up with the unified theory of everything (with regard to markups in Logos, not physics), please share it on the FL groups! (If you come up with that theory with regard to physics, I want an autographed picture of you accepting your Nobel prize.)

My thanks to the various MVPs. Without them Logos would have died early. They were the only real help available.

Faithlife Corp. owes the MVPs free resources for life.

In case it is useful to someone, there is a Faithlife group that has 34 different highlighting palettes that you may find of interest to use/modify...

Cindy,

 

I found this utube link and even though it is for Logos 5 it worked in my Logos 6. Look at other utube videos. I keep seeing more.

 

Glad I could be of help.
