Hi, folks,

Back under "Handouts" (before it was sadly deprecated), users could type in a passage and have a lot of media (maps, word find puzzles, pictures, etc...) culled from their libraries and presented in the format of a printer-friendly handout.  (How this isn't "handy" is beyond me.)

Does anyone have any idea on how to do something similar with commentaries?  Right now, I search for a passage, click on all of the commentaries in my collection, and then cut and paste each one to Word.  

It's very manual labor intensive and should be pretty easy to automate if Logos was inclined to help us in this regard.  Am I missing a feature anywhere that lets me do that?

Thanks!

Tyson

Tyson Heyn:

If I'm not confused about what you ask, can you not run a Passage Guide on the verse(s) and then use Print/Export to print out the list that is generated?

Or do you seek something different?

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.

Thanks for the reply--I'm trying to skip printing/exporting the LIST of resources and instead want to print/export the ACTUAL resources themselves that relate to the passage.

The idea is that I'd love to have an auto-generated Word document for a particular passage that contains all of the pertinent content from my commentaries.  This is much more useful for me to read offline than having to interact with the application each time.  "Handouts" did this for media (not commentaries, at least not as of now), and I'm wondering if there's some easy workaround that I'm not aware of.

This is how Handouts handles a passage request--it just doesn't use commentaries, unfortunately!

I asked this same question many years ago when I saw the feature on a competing software platform. I guess for me it falls into the category of something nice to have, but can live without it. I don't think you'll ever see that feature in Logos.
