There are some handy list-focused resources in Logos (e.g., Wilmington's). However, there are also really handy lists scattered across resources in Logos. For instance, in Anchor's Dictionary on Genesis on Narrative, one may find a list of etiologies and another of formulas. 

An idea to keep track of these:

  1. Select and create a note. 
  2. Tag it with (1) something that indicates the content such as (etiologies; etiology) and (2) the word list. 

In the future, when you vaguely remember a list you encountered, all you need to do is head to the Notes tool, and search for "list" in the filter field (alternatively, scroll to tags and find 'list') and here it will be. Click on the anchor hyperlink to be directed to the list in the resource of origin.

So, I hilite it

Rite click

Click ''create a note''

Write 1st word = LIST

Write ''...of bla bla bla''

Now, is it a Note or A Tag, or both?  I see that I clicked on ''create a note''...……………….Thank you

1) In the resource that has the list, choose where you want the note to be. You can select an introductory sentence (as I did in the example below) or the full list. Right click select Add Note (on the left in the context-menu). The created note will be automatically anchored (linked) at your chosen location (if you were to click on AYBD in the note as shown below, it would lead back to where the list is).

2) At the bottom of the note, there is a "Add Tags" field (red rectangle in the picture below). Type in "list" hit enter. Enter other tags you may want in the same way.

When you need to find your lists later:

Open the Notes Tool and type list in the Find field (red rectangle below). It will find it in your tags (green rectangle) and if you click on the tag display correspond notes on the right:

In the following example, I show how to find the list one remembers vaguely. If I recall it was about etiologies (this is where using the tag or tags you are most likely to remember comes in), then after finding all the notes tagged "list," I click on "list" to apply the filter, then type "etiology" (or look through the tag list below the find button) to find the specific note.

If you accumulate lots of lists that way, you would be able to find them again very easily. This approach can be used to a database of where other kinds of handy materials are found interspersed in your library. Note that a regular search for "list," etiologies or both would not have found my passage in AYBC or produced too many irrelevant hits.

Thank you, Francis, for the above two replies.  I am pasting them into an area where I accumulate TIPS.

These kind of lists are important to me.  Being a virtual amateur at accomplishing anything in Logos beyond highlighting, I use the title of the book to store lists.  Each letter of the book's title page gets saddled with a note from the volume's contents.  This is inefficient in the extreme.

I use this methodology to save summary paragraphs found in each book, as well.

Kauffman, D., & Stauffer, J. L. (1930). Helps for Ministers and Other Christian Workers (pp. 155–157). Scottdale, PA: Mennonite Publishing House.

It would be nice to find similar lists in other resources. I wonder if there is a search string that can find the list format.

Thanks ahead of time for any input.

No. "Lists" would require tagging by Faithlife.

List has a pattern of words followed by Bible reference so a slow search idea is: (list has lots of results in an article: e.g. 71x Precepts for Workers)

(Almighty,always,Christ,comfort,disciples,faith,faithfulness,forgive,gentleness,glory,God,godliness,good,goodness,heart,heaven,Holy,hope,humilty,kindness,Jesus,joy,Lord,love,obey,patience,peace,pray,prayer,pure,rejoice,suffering,thanks,thanksgiving,will,word,worship) BEFORE 8 WORDS <Ge-Rv>

Ranking lots of search results takes lots of time while does not improve list discoverability since articles with high density of many results lack high ranking.

Expanding search to

(Almighty,always,Christ,comfort,disciples,doctrine,faith,faithfulness,Father,forgive,gentleness,glory,God,godliness,good,goodness,heart,heaven,Holy,hope,humilty,kindness,Jesus,joy,Lord,love,obey,patience,peace,pray,prayer,pure,rejoice,righteousness,soul,suffering,thanks,thanksgiving,will,word,worship) BEFORE 8 WORDS <Ge-Rv>

increases results in Helps for Ministers and Other Christian Workers from 261 to 279 (with 80x in article having list, but Ranked has article last that corresponds with list location in resource)

Dreaming of search filter to keep articles having minimum specified # of results: e.g. 50x minimum would reduce 19 articles to two (2) in Helps for Ministers and Other Christian Workers
