In earliest version of Logos there's been a possibility to make a list/print a list what I recently own. Does sone know how it works with L4?

Thanks,

Mark Barnes has created an application that will do this for you FREE.

EDITED: Apparently you will have to contact Mark for a link.  Check out Donovan's post just below this one for the referenced forum post.

In Logos 3 there was a bibliography report, but that has not yet been implemented with Logos 4. There is however a workaround which is being discussed in this thread: http://community.logos.com/forums/t/6137.aspx I haven't tried it yet myself.

I did utilize Mark's script and am very pleased with the results. I encourage you to check it out. (Remember how much ink you may use if you are planning on printing out a huge collection with color covers and all. Surprise )

I have tried to utilize Mark's method, but I'm stuck on the instruction, 'Upload your library catalogue'.  What is that, and how does one do that?

Longtime Logos user (more than $30,000 in purchases) - now a second class user because I won't pay them more every month or year.

Hope this helps:

1) Go to this post: http://community.logos.com/forums/AddPost.aspx?ReplyToPostID=50103&Quote=False
2) From the link in this Logos forum post go to Mark Barnes web site
3) Create a user account (it is free) & log in. (Be sure you allow cookies)
4) You should now be on the page called "How to create a bibliographic report in Logos 4" (If you are not, return to the Logos forum post and click the link again.
5) Copy this text without the quotes " %appdata%\..\local\Logos4\Data "
6) Paste that text in the Browser search box on Mark's page
7) Click Browse.
8) This opens a directory window AppData\Local\Logos4 (on my Vista computer)
9) Click on your Data folder and find the folder with the wierd name: dw5n1dfy.u4p (on mine.) Click on that wierd name folder. The key identifier is that "4" in file root. It happens to be the ONLY file in my folder.
10) Click on the folder named LibaryCatalog and find the "catalog" file.
11) click on the FILE named "catalog" -it is a database type of file (mine is 36,702kb in size)
12) The Browser search box on Mark's page should now have that path in it. Click "Upload." 

If you have accomplished these steps you computer will upload your library catalog to Mark's website. (Takes 5~8 minutes) Once finished the script will offer you different reporting options. You can have reports generated in each format and save them to your computer as html files.

Go try it!
