SteveF:
But my eyes cannot follow the cursor fast enough to even figure out what is happening. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and I agree. But without some words I'm just not "getting" it.

Hi Steve,

What part are you not getting? How to use QuickLinks? (see video demo here). (it does have audio)

Or is it the Helper Apps that you don't understand?

EDIT: Do you have Team Viewer? if so i can send you a ID & PW and show you on my computer.

EDIT2: is there something i could create which would assist you? i.e. another video and move the mouse more slowly & telling in the audio where i am placing the mouse. What would help you?

Hey Steve! So I'm just reading about your little app here and was wondering: what is the point behind it? I'm not really sure I'm understanding what it would be useful to me for. Can you give me an example?

Thanks! Big Smile

Hi Carmen,

Carmen Gauvin-O'Donnell:
what is the point behind it? I'm not really sure I'm understanding what it would be useful to me for. Can you give me an example?

Did you see this post http://community.logos.com/forums/p/33327/250569.aspx#250569 where i explained a couple of uses? Also did you see the video demo?

In a brief explanation (i need to get ready for evening church in a few minutes):

It allows you to navigate a selected unlinked book in L4 to the position of one of your linked books. This allows you to read & scroll in the unlinked window without disturbing your linked window. After explaining it to my son, he calls the unlinked window a catch-all window. Using this tool prevents my linked windows from being moved off my study verse while i am viewing stuff in the catch-all window. [catch-all window is not what i would call it, because i often have a couple of unlinked windows that i move to locations i use.]

One particular mode i like in an unlinked Bible is when i set it to Send Hyperlinks Here. Then i have footnoted passages navigate that window, then i might want it navigated back to where one of my linked Bibles is located.

So if you have seen the video, please let me know. Maybe i need to remake that video with more detail or even make a different one showing some examples.

That part now makes sense to me. Thanks

Hi Steve

I've only just now had the opportunity to install QuickLinks.

It looks as though it is going to be really useful.

Great job and thanks for sharing

Hi Graham,

Graham Criddle:
I've only just now had the opportunity to install QuickLinks.

If you downloaded the installer from the forum, then you do not have the latest version. You will need to go to the website QuickLinks (see link in my signature below) to get the most up to date version, as well as access to the other Helper Apps that you can also install.

Hope that it is useful to you as you anticipate,

steve

After doing the reboot I mentioned in my earlier post, I tried to load this program and it refused to load...something was missing, I think.

I'll try again, I suppose, since this sounds like sonething I would get use from.

Just tried to load this again and got the following...

Error: Could NOT establish communications with Logos 4 COM.

Error HRESULT_FAIL has been returned from a call to a COM component.

 

Any ideas how I should proceed?

Hi Paul,

David Paul:

Error: Could NOT establish communications with Logos 4 COM.
Error HRESULT_FAIL has been returned from a call to a COM component.

These are symptoms that i have only seen on 2 other computers. i built a custom version and installed it on the 2 other computers. That installation performed all task with the exception of Logos API calls. i emailed Logos tech support and they had me try running Logos4 with a command line parameter for registering tools. That did not work on either computer. i later got an email from Bob letting me know that the issue was forwarded to a developer, but that they were pretty busy and would get back to me when they found time if ever.

So it is my guess that something did not install properly in the Logos installation having to do with setting up their API interface. There also is a possibility that some other app on the user's computer has trashed something (e.g. registry cleaners).

In one of those 2 cases the user had more than one computer and QL installed OK on the other computer. One machine was a Vista machine (same as mine).

Sorry that you are having problems, but i am at a loss to how to fix it. Sad

Well, c'est la vie. Not the first disappointment in my life. Thanks anyway. Sounds like a useful program.

I just went through the installation process and am excited about this new convenience. I am also eager to have you post the process for the additional apps. My problem is that after the installation I have the shortcut on my L4 menue bar but it won't open Quicklink. It doesn't show up in the task bar at the bottom. It is in my programs and once I fiddled with it enough in the program menue to get it to open but can't seem to get it to open there either now. Stumped!

Hi Rodger,

Rodger Allen Thompson:
My problem is that after the installation I have the shortcut on my L4 menue bar but it won't open Quicklink. It doesn't show up in the task bar at the bottom. It is in my programs and once I fiddled with it enough in the program menue to get it to open but can't seem to get it to open there either now. Stumped!

i suspect that you have it running, but if you are running Windows 7 it may have hidden the notification icon. i have seen this happen on other's PCs that i have remotely connected to. i don't have Win7 so i cannot show you a picture. But in the notification area (icons next to the clock in your taskbar) you will see an arrow or triangle, if you click on it windows will pop up a small box showing you the icons that it has hidden. You should see the QL icon there. Just use your mouse to grab it and drag it to the notification icon area and drop it where you want it.

If you cannot figure this out please email me sclark at clark-tx dot net  and i can help you further. The preferred method is for you to install a free app called Team Viewer and email me the ID & PW so that i can connect to your PC.

Let me know the outcome,
steve

EDIT:

Starting QuickLinks

1. Click once on the QuickLinks shortcut in your Logos 4 shortcut bar
    (if you followed the instructions during installation you should have added QL to the Logos 4 shortcut bar)

2. After you have done step 1, you will see a message window letting you know that QuickLinks is connecting
    to Logos 4.
   (if you see this message window you know:
       a. That QuickLinks has started. If you do not receive an error message then QL is running.
       b. After the message window disappears, QL adds it's icon     to the notification area on your taskbar.
           (Win7 may hide it, if so look on the notification bar for a triangle/arrow and click on it, a pop-up box with icons
            will appear, you should see the QL icon there, drag it to the notification bar and drop it)

3. After QL is running, you will see the QL icon in your notification bar.
    To use QL without the Helper Apps you will need to right click on the QL icon and
       a pop-up menu appears (see image below)
    This is how you use QL in the manual mode without the Helper Apps. See the video QuickLinks demo.

You are correct, that is what was happening. It is working fine, I just didn't realize it. Now I look forward to the additional apps you have developed. Please do publish the process, and thanks for your help.

Rodger, i am glad to hear that you got QL working!

Rodger Allen Thompson:

i am guessing you are talking about QL's Helper Apps, you can download & install them from this webpage: Helper Apps

Or perhaps you are speaking of moreFavorites, see this webpage to download & install it: mFavs

EDIT:

How the Helper Apps work

After you install the Helper Apps per the installation procedure and moved the shortcuts from a folder on your desktop to the Logos 4 shortcut bar, you will see the shortcuts as large link letter icons. (note: Helper Apps do not show up in the notification bar like QL)

1. Click in an unlinked window that you want to position to where a linked window is positioned.

2. Now click on the Helper App who's link letter matches the linked window.
    (if QL is not running, the Helper App will start QL first)

3. Now notice in your unlinked window that you clicked on in step #1 is now positioned to where your linked window is positioned.
    (the Helper App saves you a few key strokes and you don't have to move your mouse out of the Logos 4 window)

  Another example

4. Click in an unlinked window.

5. Now click on a Helper App letter matching a linked window.

6. Notice the QL has positioned your unlinked window to where the linked window was positioned.

Yes the helper apps is what I was looking for. I have them installed and on my shortcut bar. I did remove the QL4 shortcut as you suggested but it remains in the folder on my desktop. Is this correct? Also I looked breifly at the mFavs and saw the installation instructions but did not see any explanation as to what it does. Before I install it could you give me a brief explanation? Thanks so much for you help. I am looking forward to more convenient study time now.

Yes, you will need to leave QuickLinks window shortcut installed on the desktop folder. The Helper Apps will start QL if they find it is not currently running. After using a Helper App you will see the QL icon in the notification bar. The Helper App communicates to the QL app, they do not do the communicating with Logos 4, it still is the QL app which requests action from Logos 4.

Brief info on mFav is found on the mFav webpage. For instructions on how to use it, are found on the mFav Help webpage. There you can view the Help PDF or download it and use PDF viewer to read it.
