Good morning and a blessed day in the living and victorious Lord Jesus!

I was searching for a passage list I know I created in Logos 8. It did not find it, so I searched through some archives and found it with an ".lbxvrs" extension. Curious, I did a search for other ".lbxvrs" passage lists and found that most (I didn't check all of them as there are too many) also don't show up on Logos 8.

Digging deeper into the rabbit hole, I found that several other archived files with ".lbxoeb" extensions also do not appear anywhere in mu Logos 8 library. [e.g. "St. Thomas Aquinas' Summa Theologica", "Origin of the Species" and many others.]

My questions are:

  1. Are these somewhere else I can't see or where I'm not looking?
  2. If not, can they be imported somehow?
  3. Specifically in the case of Passage lists (".lbxvrs"), is there an easy way to convert the contents, which list references in the format "bible.40.1.1" to "Matthew 1:1", etc.)?

Many thanks and blessings,
Scott

Your Libronix DLS documents can be imported into Logos 8 with the "import passage lists" command. See https://ref.ly/logosres/logos4help?hw=Importing+Libronix+DLS+Documents for more information.

These are personal books created in Libronix DLS. They are not supported by Logos 8 and can't be imported. Instead, the source document needs to be converted to DOCX then recompiled with Logos 8's Personal Books tool.

Hey, Bradley!

Thanks for your help, but that isn't working. Is there a way in the command line of Logos 8 to specify the path to those lists? I suspect Logos 8 is looking in a folder for an installed old library. (I no longer have Libronix/earlier Logos versions installed.)

Thanks!

You'll have to put them in the default Libronix DLS location (whether or not you have LDLS3 installed). IIRC, this is "Documents\Libronix DLS\VerseLists" (create the folders as necessary).
