How do other people do it? 

I often use Logos on my iPad Mini where there is no internet connection. So the Exegetical guide is not available. I find the Favorites feature the best to easily get to a commentary.

However, take the Word Bible Commentary for example. It is comprised of 60 books. So, if I am reading the bible and moving between references, this means I have to then select the particular volume of the WBC that I need to reference out of the 60 volumes. The Exegetical Guide just takes me to the verse. 

Am I missing something? do I just need to create a favorite for WBC and put all 60 books in it?

Thanks,

Richard.

I'm in a hurry, but for clarification: the exegetical guide is now available on mobile.

Yes, but Richard is referring to times when he doesn't have an Internet connection

Hi Richard

Richard Kingston:

can you explain how you are using the Favorites feature for this?

I'm not clear what you are describing

I organize key resources in favorites. they appear under the star icon at the top of the screen on iOS. By tapping on the star you then get to the resources easier than going into your library.

Richard, I basically use favorites the way you do.  On my PC I have a commentary tab and I will read through about 10-12 prioritized commentaries by clicking the right arrow button.  The only way I know to read those commentaries in that same manner on my iPad is to go though each commentary and drag to favorites.

What we really need is the use of parallel resource on iPad so we can scroll through resources like we can on a PC.  I currently use Parallels Access on my iPad to scroll through commentaries now: http://community.logos.com/forums/t/74044.aspx?PageIndex=2

Hi Richard

I know you won't like my solution but it works absolutely great for me.  I simply put a prefix number on the front of the title of all my commentaries (e.g. 01 Genesis ... 39 Malachi ... 66 Revelations  etc).

Then in my library all my commentaries are already sorted (effectively indexing them). Plus they're at the top since it's usually the commentaries I pull randomly.

You'd say ... goodness, that'll take hours!  Actually not, plus I did it many moons back; it's good from then on.  I guess I have maybe 10 or so sets indexed.

Actually, I like the idea. I can see a couple of uses already.

Thank you for the post.
