Thanks you, Adam, for the webinar. I increased my understanding of how to use the Notes tool by about 80% or so.

I do wish the questions hadn't been brushed aside. I understand the time crunch, but as you likely know as an instructor, student questions are the only real feedback you have on what is being understood and what is not. Or better yet from a developer perspective, how well the usability is going for the software.

I would love to see an additional webinar with about fifteen minutes of instruction and about 45 minutes of Q&A. Those questions are surprisingly generalizable to your audience, and answering as many as is possible would be a great use of your instructional time, IMO.

Thanks again for doing the webinar!

My thanks to the various MVPs. Without them Logos would have died early. They were the only real help available.

They said they'd be posting audio, and I assume that means in the Notes Faithlife Group (but not for sure).

Keep an eye on the forums, as someone will likely note if it gets posted.

Phil Gons says he will be posting a link in the Faithlife Notes group https://faithlife.com/logos-notes/activity in addition to emailing a link to those who registered for the webinar

For convenience, here's the link to an edited version of the webinar (I assume to correct some audio problems they had)-

Thanks, Doc B. We received over 400 questions during the webinar. Some of these I responded to on-air, many I skipped because they concerned features that I already planned to address in my outline, and several more of most common questions I answered in an FAQ: https://faithlife.com/posts/1703885

I'd be happy to hear what other questions you still might have.

Adam, I am curious about your thoughts on this. Morris Proctor in his webinar suggested exactly opposite of the official FL stance of not creating notebooks for each book of the Bible. His rationale was for notes on books of the Bible that are general (such as background, culture, etc) and are not anchored to a reference.  Thoughts?

I think a general Q&A with the team is a great idea and would love to see it happen.

I was still able to register for the webinar even though I'd missed it. As soon as I registered, I was taken over to the recorded version of it. That's the unedited version from the live session. Register here:

I know this is sticking my neck out to go against the official trainer, but... I would simply anchor general notes to the book title (or intro heading). This has the advantage of appearing at the head of the list when sorted by reference (without the need to create/maintain a notebook).

David, I think this is an overstatement. The official stance is more like, "anchors make it easier to automatically organize your notes." You don't have to keep notebooks on every book of the Bible, but you might have reasons to do so; and there are other ways, like tags, you could leverage as well. 

Notes is a flexible tool. Do what works for you.

That makes sense. This week in his highlighting webinar he also said to anchor those types of notes to the first verse in the book which, in my mind, would then eliminate the need for a notebook.

I shouldn't have said stance I should have more rightly said suggestion.
