Here are some macros which will assist you when building a Personal Book (PB) in Word. Please follow the steps when installing them.

below is a link to a short demo of the macros (my screen recorder does not show pop-up windows that Logos shows, so as i am moving in the later part of the video in the PB i am hovering over links and L4 is showing them but the video does not show them)

(The video below may not work inside the forum, but if you right click on the video below and click on Open in a new tab, it will open in a new tab in your browser and play)

Click here to play this video

 

Below is the ZIP file which contains the macro template and a few other files as describe a little further down)

5153.L4_PB_Macro.zip

One of the files inside of the Zip is Adding the macros to Word.pdf. It is instructions on how to add the macro template to Word.

Also in this document are instructions on how add the Custom Ribbon with the Logos4 Macros Tab (see below). On this tab are buttons which tie to each of the macros.

This custom tab does not work in Word 2007, but you can look on Microsoft's site for instructions on add command to you Quick Link bar and there add the macros one at a time to your Quick Link bar.

And finally in the Zip is a PDF file L4 PB Macro Template Information.pdf which has information on each of the macros.

I have Word 2003 as well, but i have not made a PDF on how to install it (perhaps later i will do that).

Doubtless, it is one of the most amazing add for Logos 4 ever made. Thanks so much!

Awesome, Steve! I guess this means it's time for me to upgrade to Word 2010. I'd love to have the custom tab.

Added the ability to the Logos4 URL macro to use either WIKI or URL methods from the Logos4 menu. Decided to add the URL method after watching MP video, since he suggests using this method i decided that users may try to follow his lead. Now the Logos4 URL macro will work with both.

Yes, I tried, it worked! Thank you! But the only thing is, I cannot get the Menu button on the Ribbon. Still trying to figure out.

That is great to hear!

Guess that you saw the instructions further down in the PDF instructions for doing this. But if the do not work, then you can look on Microsoft's site and learn how to add a Tab to your user interface ribbon, then add the groups & buttons manually to each macro.

Bad news: Office for Mac 2011 does not support adding or editing ribbon content, only customizing" (i.e. show/hide)

Perhaps you can add individual buttons to the Quick Access Toolbar in Mac 2011

i am guessing here

A. Inside of the Customize Toolbars window you might try clicking on All Commands , i am guessing that you will see more commands appear in this list than you are currently seeing in the list. Then in the updated list look for Macro or Macro commands and if you see the individual macro commands you can add them one at a time to create individual buttons for each command. Since i do not have a Mac or Mac Office i cannot help beyond this.


But even if you cannot add buttons, you can run a macro from this window. Simply find the macro that you want and click on it, then click on the Run button. Word will then execute the macro. Don't forget to position your cursor in Word where you want the macro to place it prior to opening this window though.

Sure, I will do that. Thank you for your help.

I have one question: Is that Yellow bar (warning bar?) common to show up every time I open this template?

Yes, it is to warn you that you should not accidentally edit your template

i have added another macro to the set of macros, HyperLink L4Filename. i used it while making a PB with all my document links (see this post).

If you already have added my macros earlier you will need to follow the steps in the attached PDF Adding the macros to Word again to: add the macro & add the new Tab. Also the Macro Information PDF has been updated which tells you how to use it.

EDIT (updated for URL fix earlier too) 1104.L4_PB_Macro.zip
