I have been trying to share my love of this Bible software, but can't get past the fact that you can't take a page of notes. Only have notes along with something you noted or highlighted. Maybe there can be a way to have a blank journal in the library.

There are a lot of really good note taking apps.  I don't understand why you would want to have notes in Logos unless they are keyed to part of your library.  Am I missing something?

Good idea. Welcome to the forums by the way. Smile

Sure. Perhaps you want to write a sermon and have split screen.

I did not think there was a way to have a split screen with notes on one side and a bible on the other in this app. Are you talking about something else?

Fred - I think if you go back and read my comment in context it will make more sense. Stick out tongue

Penni complained that she couldn't "take a page of notes" to which Chris replied "I don't understand why you would want to…" My comment was a reply to Chris.

You are right… you can't… which is what Penni was complaining about and what Chris was wanting to know why it would be useful. Smile

It would be for taking notes during a Bible study without having to switch to another app. In Blue Letter Bible, you can take a page of notes in a section. It would be nice to have a blank "journal" in book form to take notes and have them all in one spot. If I needed to refer to my notes I would have one place to go to.

I guess I can see where that would be useful.  I find the 4 finger swipe to switch apps works more than sufficiently for me.  This gives me a full page for scripture and a full page for notes in apps that are designed specifically to do what they do best.

Alternatively, if it's a reasonably short passage, I will often paste the passage into Evernote.

The problem I see is that it would take a significant amount of effort to come up with an embedded note taking function inside of Logos... and we know from the comments on this forum, if they only get us to "good enough"... well that won't likely be good enough.  I'd prefer they spend their programming cycles on the study features and leave the note taking to guys that do that best.  JM2C.

Wow. I didn't know about the 4-finger swipe. That is most helpful. I double click the home button and was concerned about doing it too much and wearing out the button.

I'll add my 2 cents:

The note box covers text of the active window. It would be more useful if the note box was a floating window (movable) or opened in place and over the second window when using the split screen.

I hope this makes sense. Smile

This has been suggested in the recent past and someone from Logos logged that suggestion with development

I think the OneNote IStudyBibleTools - http://IStudyBibleTools.com (the new name is BibleNote, and the new site is http://BibleNote.pro) may be helpful for you. This software can parse notes in OneNote and automatically link them to Bible. So you can, while reading the Bible in OneNote, see the notes that refer to this or that Biblical passage.

And it is not hard to integrate this program with Logos: to obtain the opportunity of reading the Bible in Logos and see the notes that refer to concrete Bible verse. And to open Bible verses in Logos on clicking the verses hyperlinks in OneNote.

A sermon without a text?

No. A sermon document without a note indicator attached to a bible.

I would never write a sermon in Logos... but if I did, I would never attach it to a resource or reference.

And this demonstrates some of the flexibility of Logos and the variety of ways in which it is used!

I frequently write sermon "notes" using the Logos notes capability - and link it to the Bible passage that I will be preaching on.

Then I use my iPad to preach from.

What I really want to do is be able to build a note library over time that is organized by book. Hmm

Over time I could review what I have learned or gathered on a specific passage by going to that passage and seeing Brian ' s notes.

You can do that. Was this a statement or a question? If the later, please create a new thread and explain what you would like to do and learn about.

Hello Alexander,

Thank you for this tip. However, I don't quite get what you are saying here:

And it is not hard to integrate this program with Logos: to obtain the opportunity of reading the Bible in Logos and see the notes that refer to concrete Bible verse. And to open Bible verses in Logos on clicking the verses hyperlinks in OneNote.

How do I integrate this with Logos?

I love Logos but, I find it's note taking to abilities to be lame. 

Thanks!

God Bless,

Pete

I put it wrong. It is not hard to implement this integration.

There is no such functionality now. The BibleNote can be integrated with other program. It is not hard to implement this integration. But it requires some coding from other vendor (from Logos team). From our team all integration components are ready.

I am not sure if it is possible to ask the Logos team to write some code to realize the integration with other systems.
