EDIT: or perhaps the above subdomain isn't working. Here is the full url: http://www.clark-tx.net/sc/n7/default.html

I must have been trying while you were updating it, both URLs work fine now.

Looks great!

Great. I got into split screen and couldn't figure out how to get out of it in a Nexus 10. Your notes were a wonderful help. Thanks.

Steve - I am very interested in how you tagged "Father" and "Christ" in your History screen.  Please walk me through the steps.

Hi Victor,

Victor Morrison:
I am very interested in how you tagged "Father" and "Christ" in your History screen.

i use custom highlighting styles which i have made in the Highlighting panel. As i do a study on a Bible passage i add highlighting to some pronouns in the Bible text.

Victor Morrison:
Please walk me through the steps.

A.  The Highlighting tool (found under Tools menu).

B. Here i created a new Palette (by using the New palette button at the top of the panel) which i named Pronouns.

C. Here in my new palette (Pronouns), i added new Styles (Christ, David, Father, etc).
     Here are the basic steps inside the Style editor

                      

         1. Right-click on your new Palette and in the popup menu click on Add a new style. It should open the Style Editor as shown above. You will need to name it (as i named this one Christ).

         2. Then click on Label Text to expand that section.

         3. Then enter the text that you want to appear after your highlighted pronoun, set the color for the text, and mark as SuperScript.

         4. Then click on Save to save your new highlighting style.

D. Now in your Bible you can use your mouse to select the text of a pronoun (in the image i selected he) and then selected my highlighting style Father. Logos will then show Father immediately after he using purple and superscript it.

 

All this is done on my Computer in Logos Bible Software. It appears in my Nexus7 after syncing.

Hope this helps,
steve

Creating the custom style currently requires using the desktop, but once the style is created and synced you can create new highlights using the custom style on the device.

Thanks Steve for sharing your notes on how to use the app.

Excellent.  This is very helpful.  Thank you very much.

Is there a way to do the same thing using a visual filter?  Is Logos smart enough to be able to identify who the 'he' is referring to and mark it accordingly.

Thank you very much Steve. I just bought a Nexus 7 and am trying to figure out how to use Logos 5. Your notes are a real help. I have a question. How do I download a large number of Logos books to my Nexus 7? I have 32 gig. And I do not see the green arrow on the books I know I have downloaded.

Thanks. You work is outstanding. I will forward to my son who also has Nexus 7 and L4.

Hi Tod,

Tod Kennedy:
I do not see the green arrow on the books I know I have downloaded.

Mine show up as shown below (in the 2nd image below), i had to wait until they were downloaded and they show up in the Library View (while online).

Tod Kennedy:
How do I download a large number of Logos books to my Nexus 7? I have 32 gig.

i just keep downloading books one at a time. While the 1st one is downloading i can select another to download while the 1st one is downloading, they will just be queued up to download after the 1st one is downloaded (to the best of my memory).

A. Tap in the reading view (this makes the options bars on top & bottom appear)

B. Then tap on the Side panel icon (this will open the Library/Tool view side panel as shown below)

C.  Make sure to tap the Library tab.

D. Then locate a book that you want to download and tap on the circle-i icon (this will prompt the info screen for this book as shown below)

E.  Now in the info screen for this book, just tap on the Download button.

Repeat for each book that you want.

EDIT: when you are in the airplane mode on your Nexus7, and view the Library View you will see only books that you have downloaded.

I am using L5 and only got my Nexus 7 2 days ago. I found it FAR easier to control the downloading from L5. Go to Library, highlight the books you want to download and tick the appropriate box on the right hand pane for your nexus 7. If you have two or more androids each will have its own tick box. I selected probably 150 or more for download on my 32GB nexus then closed and opened the Android App. About half downloaded in a stream at once but then they seemed to halt and the rest downloaded over the next 12 hours in dribs and drabs!!

Steve
This page is so so helpful. I wish it had been up when I first put an app the Logos app on my Nexus S. It was weeks before I discovered the main parts of it!!
