I am getting to the point of chucking this entire system for something that doesn't cause frustration and anxiety with every perk that comes with it. Why is the sermon editor so incredibly difficult to use? I am familiar with complex things but this is supposed to help me, not send me into trembling fits - please, is there a simple tutorial on how to use the sermon editor in logos 7? 

Or are you going to charge me for that too? If so, don't bother to reply.

Firstly the forum users are users by and large. there are a few employees that work for faithlife that frequent the forums, but chances are significant replies on the user forum, are going to come from other users.

I haven't delved too deeply into the sermon tool. I only recently picked up the 7 feature set.

What problem specifically are you having? Spell it out and maybe we users can help?

Robert,

What exactly are you trying to do with the sermon editor that is causing your frustration?  An unspecified rant is really hard to diagnosis.  

I use the sermon editor every week and have enjoyed it.  It has helped me greatly in my weekly preparation.  I use my IPad to preach from as well, with the document that I created in the sermon editor.

There are free videos in the Logos Pro video series that show an overview of the sermon editor.

Have you read about sermon documents in the Logos 7 Help Manual?

Sorry guys was trying to make simple slides with numbered bullet lists and just found it cumbersome and impossible to quickly use. I will review the videos posted. We are short handed this weekend and need to do my own reference slides.

Robert,

What you are wanting to do, I have never done bulleted slides in the sermon editor.   So I googled and found this short video from a fellow forum member, Graham.  This video should help. Make sure that your selection is set to Normal. Hope this helps.

Have never succeeded in making a sermon with it... I feel your frustration but the software is well worth it without the sermon editor IMHO.
