I don't know if this is a question or a feature request. Probably the latter.

I am excited about the strategy I've begun to use to take personal study notes. I've been creating a daily entry, with the simple title as the date, "Monday, February 15, 2016", reading a digestible portion of Scripture and putting down my thoughts as I read, and then when I'm done, I will "Edit the Attachment Points" to tag it with the passage I've read. I've also taken the same approach to sermon notes, only in a different note file. There's more to it than that, but that would be outside the scope of my question.

One of the reasons I wanted to organize my notes this way, particularly using the "Attachment Points" feature, is because of searchability. If I create a new search for a reference I have studied, it shows up under "My Documents" in the search results. It is displayed nicely, with each note entry displayed separately and an brief excerpt. This is perfect!

However, this is not working as I'd expected and hoped in the case of the Passage Guide. When I search for a particular reference in the Passage guide, all that I get is the note title, which is not very helpful. Furthermore, when I click on the note title, it does not even take me to the note entry in question. It merely drops me off at the top of the note and leaves me to find the entry I want manually. Not very intuitive.

Is there a different way to do this? Or should I wait with the hopes that a future release will include this feature?

I think that when we overhauled "My Content" search results in Basic Search (in Logos 6.5), we overlooked the "My Content" section in the Guides. I've created a feature request in our bug tracking system for us to improve this; thanks for pointing it out!

Hi Bradley, In light of how awesome L7 is I feel bad even asking this, but having been reminded of this problem just now, I am wondering if this means it will be fixed or what this means?

For now I can just use the regular search and find the exact note, but it would be nice to have it in the passage guide. :)

It hasn't been fixed yet. I've just sent an email asking if the priority of improving this section should be increased.

Might be wise to re-post in the Logos 7 forum as it won't be fixed for Logos 6, now.

Hi Bradley, I was checking the release notes for 7.3 and was hoping to see this fixed. Can you tell me the likelihood this will be fixed?

Sorry, I don't know when this will be fixed.

(I can tell you it's not trivial--we can't just "copy and paste" the section from Search Results to Guides--which is part of the reason it hasn't been slipped into one of the recent updates.)

Document previews should now display in the Passage Guide with 7.5 (7.5.0.0031).

This is fixed/updated in 7.5, thank you very much!
