Forgive me if this is covered elsewhere but can someone explain to me what the anchoring feature does in Notes? I’m a little fuzzy on this one.

A note's anchor designates what the note is taken on. It's the context for understanding the note content (e.g., a note that says, "I love how this verse provides comfort in hard times" and is anchored to Romans 8:28).

In Logos 7 and earlier we referred to these as attachment points.

A note can be anchored to more than one thing.

It may be helpful to think of an anchor as a stronger kind of a tag. A tag makes a looser association between the note and a topic. An anchor is generally a tighter relationship.

A note's anchor is also where the note is exposed in the the software. So a note on Romans 8:28 would show up in your Bibles at Romans 8:28.

Hi John - and welcome to the fourms

Anchoring a note links it to something.

This might be a Bible verse / passage - so that whenever you come to that verse (in any translation) you see the note indicator and can access the note.

Or it might be a portion of text in any resource - and again this means when you get to that piece of text again you can open the note and see what you said about it.

And you can apply multiple anchors to notes - so it can link to multiple verses etc.

Does that help at all?

Thank you both for your responses. I thought that was how it worked but wanted to make sure. God bless!!

Can you anchor to a topic? e.g. "Sabbath"?

Yes. For example, you can anchor to a headword, and that note will show up in other references containing an entry for that headword.

(Note, however, that a limitation only lets headwords be primary anchors. You can’t create secondary anchors to headwords.)

You might want to tag notes by topic, which would let you find notes about a topic regardless of what the note was anchored to... a verse, a text selection, a headword, etc. Notes can also have multiple tags, which would give you more flexibility In how you categorize or group related notes.

Thanks to FL for including Carta and a Hebrew audio bible in Logos 9!
