i have built a program which i use to help me generate PBs with L4 book images/hyperlinks. Thought that i would share this program with any of you Windows user out there.

The program requires:

  • Windows Vista/Win7 (not test on XP)
  • Logos4 version 4.3 or higher (not tested with 4.5)
  • Microsoft Office (or Word) installed (tested with Office 2010)

 

I will give a brief description of what the program does here:

It allows you to select a group of L4 book cover images, then after selecting the group you will be able to open the Build window

From the Build window you select how you want the images sent to a Word docx file. Once that you have setup your configuration, you would hit the Build Docx button and it generates a Word docx file with your images/info/hyperlink in it

I usually copy the table of images/links to a different docx that i am working on to make a PB with. Below is an image of my PB. In the PB i have a Table of Contents tied to each group. So i can quickly open this PB and navigate to any book that i normally use. (in the Help pdf there is a section at the end detailing how i use the program)

The program will also allow you to read and build a list of all (or some) of your L4 document (e.g. Notes, Clippings, Passage List, etc). Each document title is also hyperlinked to that document. So in your PB you can locate a Note or other document and click on it to have L4 open your Note. When the program creates your document list in a docx it sorts your titles alphabetically.

You can find info about the program along with installation file at the webpage below:

This looks great, I could create the docx file on my PC, then copy and compile on Mac too, until Personal Books sync. Thanks for sharing this!

Bumping for those who might not have seen this, since it was posted late yesterday afternoon.

Cool, thanks! I had missed it.

Don't we have an index somewhere of cool tools that people have written? This should be added to it. Yeah, here it is and I see you created it!

Made a few changes

BTW: if you didn't know, after making your PB you can click on a footnote (when using Tight Table method) and L4 puts up a static pop-up. The static pop-up will show you a vertical slider if the text in the window is larger than the pop-up.

Made headings in Footnotes bold

Added more formatting to the description.

Put the program's version number in it's Title bar.

 


i also made the Individual Table method have the ability to determine how the borders on the table are shown

Hi!

You have filled a felt need in Logos4. Many others can be filled by following the philosophy of this tool. Thanks! But...


An error occurred trying to install, any help?

Thanks!

Hi Roger,

Could you use Windows Explorer to see if the Folder 'L4-Bibliography' is found in your Documents folder, please. Then post back if you found it.

Hi Roger,

i found the problem, the program was trying to access the program's folder before it was created (always works on my system because the folder already exists).

You should be able to re-install the program per instructions below:

We need to uninstall the current L4-Bibliography2 program First

  1. Go to windows Control Panel and in the Control Panel start:
    a. if you are running windows XP open Add/Remove Programs.
    b. if you are running windows Vista or Window7 open Programs and Features
  2. Once the program opens locate the program L4-Bibliography2 and uninstall it

    Now we need to Re-install the program
     
  3. Now go to my website: L4-Bibliography2
  4. Scroll down to Installing L4-Bibliograph2 and download and follow the instructions again as you did before.

The program should install with no problems. Thanks for bringing this to my attention!

Sorry for the inconvenience,

steve

P.S.  Please let me know if it installs and runs properly on your computer

This is so awesome, Steve! I've been using tagging to put my virtual books in "shelves" like I might put them away if I had the physical books, but have not had a way to visualize these different shelves. You've now given me one. I love it!

This will also enable me to clean up some of my tagging problems (e.g., I just noticed I've got one book tagged "Shelf: Commentary" by mistake instead of "Shelf: Commentaries").

Speaking of which, I really hope Logos hurries up and provides us a better way of managing our tags. If anyone hasn't voted for this feature yet, please do: http://logos.uservoice.com/forums/42823-logos-bible-software-4/suggestions/564609-provide-management-of-mytags

Rosie, i'm glad that you like it. It is always good for a programmer's heart when they hear someone finds their program useful! P.S. You've spent a lot of time tagging your books. Nice method for tagging!

Roger, glad that you liked it!

Thank you both for letting me know!!!

Steve,

Thanks for the Tool.

Can you consider to the following:

  • Some way of sorting of the Build List: automatically (Genesis to Revelation for commentaries and Alphabetical order for others) or manually, to allow items in build list to be re-ordered via drag and drop.
  • Include "Collections" in you Categories.
  • Increase the 300 limit for build list to something higher like 1000

Thanks once again.

Steve,

Truly a beautiful piece of work!! 

It would be wonderful though if it could work in WinXP (SP3) with Word 2003 + Word 2007 [Docx] capability. I saved the Word doc it opened as a docx file, as I have done with the other PB's I created and which work, but the book covers aren't copied into the PB. Where the book cover should appear, the book hyperlink itself is inserted e.g. logosres:6.40.2. The Titles and Tags etc. are there and clicking on the hyperlink opens the book, but there just is'nt a cover in sight..

Is there any way around this or is my software just too outdated to cope with the graphics?
