Mattillo:

Then after that, I added in several verses I wanted to talk on but I couldn't move the slides around once they were in there.  Lastly, I had Pr 2:4-5 as a slide but I wanted to change it to 2:3-5.  When I clicked to edit the slide I had to type in everything manually.

Am I just dense/ignorant or is there a easier way to do this w/ less frustration? 

It might have been easier to delete the slides for Proverbs 2:4-5, then type Proverbs 2:3-5 (just the reference) and hit enter. This would then create the slides.

Bruce Junkermann:

Have you tried selecting "Send Hyperlinks Here" on your Bible tab dropdown menu?

That should do it.

Mattillo:
Clicked on them and said send to new sermon document.  The sermon editor opened but it had no slides.  I had to manually add each one.

When I try it the slides do appear in the sermon document - and if I edit them they are all there - but the view of the slides in the editor is blank. I suggest you start a new thread where we can explore this further

That is currently a limitation - adding this functionality has been requested.

Thank you Philana and Graham.  In regards to Philana, the reason why I didn't want to do that is because the new slide would be at the bottom and I cannot move the slides.

Graham, I'll try your suggestion later today or this weekend.  I do hope we can move slides in the future.  I guess I am too used to using PowerPoint.  I really like the automatic adding of verses but that is all I can use at the moment.  I think until future additions come, I'll create my verse slides in Logos and export to PowerPoint

Had no idea that "Send Hyperlinks Here" was even an option. I'll take a look at that, but it sounds like exactly what I need.

Thanks

You can click on the passage block and hit delete or backspace. This will delete the slides and insert the cursor at that location. When you retype the verses and hit enter the new slides will regenerate at that location and not the end.

I hope this helps!

Jacob Cerone:
What is it? A new “Sermon” document type that can be created and opened from the Documents menu.

Thanks for this intro. I just upgraded to Logos 7 partially to check out the sermon editor and quickly became very disappointed. I was told that Logos had all these training/tutorial videos and the salesperson sent me a link to logos-pro where I would find them. However the sermon editor video was simply a fast-paced sales tool, not a tutorial on how to use it. I feel quite misled. However your summary gave me a bit more insight, so again thanks.

Have a great day,
jmac

Hi Jim

If you scroll down on this page there is a series of training videos at the end that I am finding helpful (my thanks to Graham Criddle for these) https://www.logos.com/logos-pro/sermon-editor#tutorials

I have not been able to figure this out, but I was wondering if anyone knew how to link to a resource (instead of including the text in a card). In other words, I want to reference a resource as a linkable item in my library, but I don't want to include the text in my sermon document.

For example, I may want to say something like, "some commentators believe that..." and then link the commentary. Instead of copying the text and inserting a card into my sermon.

Thanks!

Hi Mason - and welcome to the forums

Sorry - but to the best of my knowledge this isn't possible.

Clint,

I have been using the Sermon Editor since it first came out. It has its frustrating points but it is a time saver. The slides need some real improvment

Doesn't it say "Sermon" just after "Sentence Diagram" in Documents?

Which version of Logos 7 do I have to have to get Sermon Editor? Way back when Logos was on disks, I had a Sermon Creator (or something like that), which stopped being usable during various upgrades. I think I had Logos 6 Silver, but now only have have Logos 7 starter pack, and don't seem to have access to Sermon Editor in my Documents menu.

It's a shame to have had access to an earlier version (that worked well for me) but access to nothing now.
