Does anyone know if Logos is going to format the notes to have more than one content area per main point? For instance, if I make this outline:

I. The Doctrine of the Son... (Title Box)

     A. The Hypostatic Union... (Content Box)

          1. The Deity of Christ

          2. The Humanity of Christ

     B. The Virgin Birth

     C. The Kenosis of Christ

Points A, B and C (and everything else) are stuck in one text box. I will have multiple pages on the deity of Christ alone, muchless the virgin birth or any other sub-points. The content area needs to have multiple text boxes so they can be broke down by each sub point, or in the case of a sermon, the main points. If I wanted to make a book, the whole thing would be contained in one box. Does anyone know Logos is working to change this?

Stephen,

Logos designed its notes function mainly with marginal annotations in mind. Improvements ha been offered over the course of time but I'm not certain they will be making significant changes to the way notes work.

You can, however, have multiple notes in the main note file. This can be combined with indents to probably achieve most of what you want. See the screenshot below.

Kevin,

Thank you so much! That's similar to what I was looking for. I know they made some changes, but I didn't understand what those symbols were for. How did you do that? Did you have to make a new note for "Hypostatic Union" then just indent it?

Yes, that's what I did.

What a brilliant trick, thanks Kevin. I knew about indenting content, but not the notes themselves. That's made my day.

It also made it possible not to overload one text box. My info can be broken down into managable chuncks now.

Thanks for the information.  I didn't realize you could indent the note either.  I will say there is benefit of having your notes in the Logos applicatoin.  The speed of the application to receive notes is a problem, but if you try it and persevere, after a while you do get use to it.  Thank you Logos for what you have given to us.
