1. The next item in the Context Menu is a collapsible section of Labels. Labels have few interesting Context Menu Features but have some interesting features:

  • they control the contents of some sections of the Guides, Factbook ...
  • they add significant power to the Search options
  • they can be created by users either to integrate into a Logos feature (e. g. sermons) or created by users to add additional types of coding not currently supported by Logos.
  • they sometimes provide pop-ups or extended Context Menu identification to show Label Attributes, but this behavior is not fully standardized

Here we have a collapsed label section with only Semantic Feature showing. It appears to be a derivative of the Propositional Outline.

2. When expanded, we also see the Figure of Speech label which currently is a projection of the examples in Bullinger, Ethelbert William. Figures of Speech Used in the Bible. London; New York: Eyre & Spottiswoode; E. & J. B. Young & Co., 1898.

3. The Bible Outline Label reflects the tagging for the Outlines section of the Passage Guide and for the Outline Browser.

4. The Journal Label controls the Journal section of the Guides.

5. The Sermon Label controls the Sermons section of the Guide (and perhaps some Factbook information?). See TIP of the day: Don't wait for Logos ... DIY sermon labeling

6. The new Personal Letters Label is to control a Guide section and some Factbook information.

7. There are a number of labels that relate to the Bible Books Supplemental Dataset that manage the information in the Bible Books Guide section of Factbook:

  • Additional information (see also)
  • Background
  • Canon
  • Content
  • Form
  • Meaning
  • Objects
  • Origin

See Parks, Jessica, and Sean Boisen. Bible Book Guide Dataset Documentation. Bellingham, WA: Faithlife, 2015. for documentation.

8. The data in the Psalms Explorer and the Proverbs Explorer behave as Labels in the Search but not in the Context Menu. Therefore I believe that they are projected onto the library rather than being included as labels within the resources' text. For documentation see the About section of the Psalm Explorer; I don't see the equivalent for the Proverbs Explorer at the moment.

If you are aware of other Label types or additional documentation, please add a note to this post. This is an area where Logos is changing rapidly so I don't trust that my information is comprehensive.

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

Thank you for these tips!

How can I keep this reading list of these in plain site in Logos? Is there a way to make ithem show as a reading plan on the left side of Logos home screen (whatever that area is called). Or is there a way to the reading list stay in one of the panels on the right side? Any other ideas that can help me see this every day and have one of the tips (or all of them) presented to me?
