Thanks for your labour of love John. Should that be 2017 rather than 2014?

When you are retired time passes so quickly!  Yes you are correct. I can not even begin to guess where the date came in my mind (or fingers).

Is this something that's to be viewed in Logos itself? if so, how does one even go about this?

Here is the base for getting the job done.

Create the book

Your book is built from one or more Word .docx files. Add text or paste text from your original and add milestones, fields, links and other syntax elements as necessary. You can generate footnotes and use Word Heading styles for your articles/chapters as this will automatically generate a TOC. Text and syntax elements should use the Normal style and can be intermingled. Keep formatting consistent between the files of your book.

Note that milestones can be on the same line as the Heading because they are not visible in the resource, including TOC. Also remember that milestones are the only way to index the content of the article.

See Examples for other suggestions.

Build the book

  1. Go to Tools > Personal Books
  2. Click Add book
  3. Enter Title
  4. Enter Author (optional)
  5. Enter Copyright message and Description (optional)
  6. Choose the book Type (default: Monograph).
  7. Choose a Language (it is hoped that more will be added in the future)
  8. Click Add field for a menu of optional fields (Abbreviated Title is displayed)
  9. Optionally add a cover image: Click Change... under the blank book cover and choose an image file from your hard disk. You can find usable image files for most published books by searching for their title on Google Images
  10. Click Add file... and select the .docx file from your hard disk. You can add multiple .docx files to make up a book and use “drag&drop” to reorder them (right-click a file to remove it).
  11. Click Build book

After the book is built (aka “compiled”) it should automatically open in a tab and begin Indexing.

Rebuilding a Book

Make changes to your docx files, Add or remove any BODY FILES and then click Build book.
It will recompile, recreate the resource file and then Index it.
