How can one print all notes within a single notebook with the anchor text? I found selecting all of the notes in the notebook can print them - although I'm thinking there must be a way to do that without having to select them. However, whenever I print notes (whether single or in a group) the text of the anchor does not show up.

When you print or export notes, the anchors will not be visible. See this thread https://community.logos.com/forums/t/178624.aspx

Ah, okay. Thank you. That's a bit disappointing. I guess the thing to do would be to copy and paste the text of the anchors into the note until they add that functionality. Is there not a way to print a whole notebook without having to select all of the notes in it first? Seems like we ought to be able to do that.

Yes

Select Close Note from the dropdown in the top right. As long as no notes are open, when you choose Print / Export it will Print or Export the entire Notebook selected.

I am curious about why you print your notes. I have seen many posts talking about Printing notes and Notebooks. I'm interested in why users are printing their notes. Just curious

Ah! Thanks again! When I am leading discussions in a group I take printed notes with me so I'm not scrolling around in a device. Since about Logos 4 I've been using the Notes documents to create notes from the text of commentaries, bibles, and other resources for my classes and bible studies. With the old Notes documents there were some great formatting options available with font styles, etc. to help keep things organized and to find stuff quickly at a glance. I like the new way notes are organized well enough, but some of the usefulness for my purposes has been lost or at least diminished. 

In the old system, you'd have to copy and paste text from the resources into the notes, anyway. So, I can keep doing that for the time being - it's just kind of redundant with the anchor feature. I really like the anchors; it's just unfortunate that they don't print.

Until Logos 8, exporting a Notes document to Word yielded a two-column table with Notes in the right-hand column. By expanding the left column and pasting each matching verse into it, the result was a script to teach from.

For example: 5633.Luke 15 Prodigal Son.docx

Jack, Thanks for your reply to my question. I'd like your permission to duplicate the content of the sample study you provided in another format that may help Logos user discover an alternative for using notes to teach bible studies, small groups, classes, etc.

You can see my example in this thread. Thanks for offering the sample content.

Thanks, Fred. Now all I need to do is to figure out how to use the Sermon Tool.

After wrestling with the Sermon Tool for a whole day, I can make it work, but it takes lots of copying and pasting, unlike the old method. Am I missing something about importing Notes into the Sermon Tool?

Jack Hairston:

I suspect what your doing is preparing the content of your lesson in a notes document (or possibly a word document,), then copying and pasting that into the sermon editor. When I prepare a sermon or lesson, I do not typically create the content in another document. I take my notes during my study process (thoughts, observations, etc). But my actual sermon or lesson I prepare in the sermon document itself.

It is super easy to enter a verse or passage reference because it presents the text of the verse or passage simply by entering the reference. 

In the example I provided on the other thread, I did not copy the scriptures shown. I simply entered the reference and it fills with the corresponding text. The nice thing is that I can change bible versions on the fly.

If you comment further, it may be better to do so on the other thread, as I fear we have officially hijacked this one. My apologies to the OP

Thanks for your patient explanations, Fred. (With my apologies also to the original post-er)

I did as you suggested, typing a reference into the Sermon Tool, which pasted the text, but then I had to copy and paste the discussion questions from the matching Note. Is there an easier way?

As I said in my reply above, when I create a sermon or lesson, I do not create the content in a note. My original content is created in the sermon document. I typically use notes just to record my own observations, and thoughts. I look at notes the same way I might think about the notes in the margin of my bible, or perhaps a spiral notebook I might take notes in when reading a paper book (I think they still print paper books).

I find it can be easier to learn with the information on a printed page.  It seems easier to assimilate.  Perhaps it's just different learning styles.  I remember Horner with his 10 chapter/day reading plan saying that visualizing where a verse is on a page helps memory.

If I want to go deep meditating on a specific topic on a given week, like Humility for example, it would be great to be able to print out my Humility Notebook, with references (anchors) and be able to flip through it during prayer, meditation, etc.

Also Fred Chapman, I like to use the Notes feature like you, for personal insights and observations.  But I also like to use it to create my own cross-reference system, perhaps like a Thompson Chain-Reference system.  Just today I took my Humility Notebook with over 100 notes/passages and split it up into 4 more manageable notebooks, Humility Gospels, Humility NT, Humility OT, etc.  I've got 26 references on Humility just in the Gospels.  Rather than printing, I might be able to read it from my mobile phone app.  There used to be a bug if you opened a note (android) it screwed up the note somehow, formating or something.  Maybe that's been fixed.
