David Goodman:

Appreciate this so much, Richard! For the first time I am getting an error message.

"Error finding your books. Probably Logos was closed. Please restart the program and do not close Logos."

Sorry, my mistake. I uploaded an older version of the program, that had this bug. This version should work.

FYI - This is an .exe file and not a .docx file. Perhaps you uploaded the wrong file again?

The .docx file did not have an error, so I did not post it again. That is for people who want to have the complete list. For people who want a list of only the books that they have in their library, they need to use the .exe file. Here are the instructions:

It is possible to exclude books that are in my library but not in yours, which makes the resulting personal book easier to use. This is possible only in Windows; the Mac version of Logos does not allow it. To do this, download and unzip the MyIndex.zip file. There should then be two files in a directory. Start the Index Bible Studies.exe program, which will open Logos (if it is not already open), read the names of all the books in your library, and then create a file My Index Bible Studies.rtf in your Documents directory. Open that file in Word or another word processor, and then save it as a docx file. Then create a personal book from that docx file.

Thanks for clarifying Richard. That makes sense. Once again, much appreciated!

Ah . . . worked like a charm. Thanks much, Richard. I really love how well this works and your graciousness in sharing such a valuable addition to Logos.

Thank you so much for your work on this. The file produced from the .exe file will make this resource much more usable.

I had, however, two compilation problems: 

1. [Error] Font 'Calibri Light' is not a valid font for use in resources.
2. [Warning] Unknown data type in use: topic+topics

The font problem is easy to fix.  (or seemed to be).
I searched for the words "topic+topics" and nothing came up.

I changed the font on the doc to TimesNew Roman in both the text and the header and footer (although this doc does not use headers or footers) and deleted the previous version out of my listing of personal books before adding the new one and recompiling.

Same problems came up.

Is anyone else duplicating this? Suggestions?

Also...I am have recurring problems with having to exit Logos and reopen whenever I recompile a doc or I get the message:
[Error] Error while building book: Could not remove existing resource. Please close all other open panels and try again.

Closing all the other panels makes no difference.

Since this is recurring problem unrelated to this specific doc. I'll post about it in another thread.
Thanks.
Cal

See my message in this thread from 4 July 2018. It is a known and harmless problem in Logos.

This too is a problem with Logos, been around for a long time. https://community.logos.com/forums/t/179645.aspx is a recent thread about it, but Google finds lots of other threads as well (http://bit.ly/2G4eFGQ), from as far back as 2011.

Richard:

Thanks.  But is there a reason why it has only shown up in Logos 8?  The problem may have been around, but it is totally new to me.  Admittedly I skipped Logos 7 (not a decision I have ever regretted) and upgraded from Logos 6 to 8, but 2011 seems before Logos 7 was released (Aug. 2016 as I recall...with help from Google).Looks like the problem would go back to Logos 4.2 or 4.3.  Still, I have created hundreds of Personal Books and the problem has never occurred until I upgraded to Logos 8.  I'm not ready to downgrade back to 6, but it is totally obnoxious.

I'd have to see how you are using Logos. I had lots of trouble with this bug in Logos 6 when I was compiling/recompiling in a short time frame. Since then, I have rarely hit the problem as there is more time between my uses of the compiler.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

What would "I'd have to see how you are using Logos" look like?

Thanks again Richard! Still amazed at how much work you put into this, and even how it's accomplished by one person! 

On a side note... I would love it if someone was to get the index to only show purchased resources for all of us Mac users. Not sure what this would take, and I'm sure it'd be a lot of work, but if anyone is considering doing it for their own use, I'd love to get in on it!

It would require Faithlife adding the ability for external programs to ask the Logos program about installed resources using a Mac (it current uses Windows technology that does not exist on a Mac). Something they are not going to do soon. They have recently stated that they will not even further develop this ability on Windows, because practically nobody uses it.
