I've tried chat to get an answer to this and they were totally unhelpful. I've checked all your training articles and none of them tell me how to do this, just that I can do it. I need to start a new notebook. How in the world do I create one?

In the Notes Tool, click the Notebooks button

Then click the "+" symbol (outlined in red) and enter the name of the notebook in the box (outlined in blue)

Does this give you what you need?

No it doesn't because there is no little + sign on my program. I have the little search (magnifying glass) icon, but there is only a box to enter in the search information, no + sign....

Very strange.

Are you sure you clicked the Notebooks icon first?

In the notes "view" you just see the magnifying glass icon.

Are you able to post a screenshot (using the paperclip icon) to show what you are seeing?

Are you using the paperclip icon in the forum editor?

Thanks Agnes

I see what you see if I have already clicked the search icon

Clicking the search icon again should give you the option to add a new notebook

What happens when you try that?

Hi. This thread doesn't seem to inform me in Logos 8. I'm having the same trouble creating a new notebook, and I see no "notebook" icon, no "plus sign", and no option to put a note into a new notebook (the only option is to move to a different notebook or remove it from all notebooks). Please help! This used to be so self-explanatory, but I've been looking for 10 minutes and can't find it!

Thanks.

Actually, I just found it! It's in "+" and select "new note document."

The confusing part is that "note document" doesn't mean the same thing as "notebook", but in the program, they're apparently the same thing. So when I'm looking to add a new notebook, I kept looking for the word "notebook"! 

Perhaps this is something that the developers could look into. Pretty confusing.

That’s strange as the thread is about L8

Did you follow the steps outlined at https://community.logos.com/forums/p/174005/1004753.aspx#1004753?

If so, please post a screenshot showing what you see

Sorry - but where are you doing this?

I see it now. Thanks.

Still, isn't that also a bit too deeply hidden? I mean three clicks of icons that we're supposed to intuitively know? I'm not the only guy who couldn't find it, so it's not as intuitive as it's supposed to be. There's used to simply be a button that said "new notebook." 

Or maybe it's a words-vs.-pictures thing. I prefer words. 

Thanks again for responding!
