How are you organizing the new shortcut folders? I am hoping to be inspired by those who are finding this helpful.

I have one for Faithlife shortcuts: amber, facilitate serendipitous discovery, server status, reading lists . . .

one for standard references: silva rhetorica, word net, verb net, semantic dictionary, name vault . . .

one for lectionaries, calendars, and lectionary preparation site: The Text this Week, Lector Prep,

one for official church sites: vatican, USCCB, UK equivalent, some eastern rite diocese offices . . .

i.e. I use the shortcut bar for shortcuts to external sites not shortcuts within Verbum.

I plan to put my Bible study layouts in a folder. There are 9 different layouts, one for each step, and  it takes up too much real estate on the short-cuts bar, so I am going to put them in a folder.

I also use the collections and personal book tools a lot, and update active layout, serendipitous discovery, etc. so will do a utility folder.

Probably do one for external websites as well.

After that, not sure.

So far I have six single-letter folders squeezed in there.

B Bibles

C Commentaries (one volume, for parallel resource shortcuts - might drop this one)

L Layouts

O Original Language

M Monographs (this one needs work!)

T Tools (really guides and tools)

The advantage of single letters is that in time I can juggle them around to spell amusing, edifying, and occasionally inappropriate words :)

Planning: OT, Intermediate, NT, Curch_history, Study_bibles, References, Maps

Currently I am using layouts, and the shortcuts for additional information.

Interesting to see whether something will change.

  • Bibles
  • Custom Guides (Passage Overview, Language, Analogy of Scripture, Voices (commentaries), Culture, Service Planning)
  • Layouts
  • Quick Ref (Treasury of Scripture Knowledge, Dictionary of Bible Themes, other items touching my current studies or series)
  • Shortcuts (Cited By, Favorites, Information, Highlighting)
  • Theology

I'm watching Mo Proctor's webinar and he mentioned this a few minutes ago. I really like having more information in the shortcut bar.

In this screenshot, New Testament, Old Testament, and Reading are layouts. Language is a combination of layouts and web links. I expanded Tools, as Logos already had an icon labeled Tools. If I were not lazy, I would probably rename Stick out tongue

So far...

C - A handful of common concise commentaries + a couple handbooks 

G - A few Greek tools

H - A few Hebrew Tools

T - A few misc. commonly accessed tools

Eventually I need a F for a Fibber McGee Folder

Note that using single letter folder names makes folder designation simple, easy, and quick.

Maybe it’s just me, but it’d be easier if, once a folder is created, we could have the ability to drag and drop resources in that folder.  I tried it and it didn’t work.  I had to right click and name each Bible the same folder name in order for it to get added to the folder.  
Also, if you have more than one folder, it’d be nice if there was a drop down menu with the names of the folders you have created and to give you the option to add to whatever folder you want.  Right click a resource and add to whatever folder you have available 👍😁👌

PS. I’m doing the same as others, English Bibles, Spanish Bibles, OL Bibles, Dictionaries, and I’ll add as needed anything else that might be useful in the future.

Thanks everyone for sharing your ideas. I'm not inspired to develop a system that should work for me.

If anyone else would like to share I'd love to hear your ideas too.

My naming conventions are mostly two-letter. Short is good, but if you get tired you might not remember what something is. O is cryptic but OL is not.

Here's what I finally decided to do for now. It is incredible that I currently have 117 links in such a small space.

B=English Bibles
C=Commentaries
D=Dictionaries/Encyclopedias
GB=Greek Bibles
GT=Greek Tools
HB=Hebrew Bibles
HT=Hebrew Tools
M=Maps/Geography
T=Logos Tools and Outside Websites
Finally, I have the "Read Aloud" icon to the right because I continually use this feature.
