I had Logos (Libronix 3.0g) and other Bible software on my computer with Windows XP operating system. I have a new EVGA computer with Windows 7 64-bit operating system. Logos helped with the appropriate upgrade, and the Logos Bible software is up and running on the new computer.

 

I previously used Logos only for more detailed studies and the theological journals. I used other software for simple lookup and copying passages without footnotes. I now intend to use Logos exclusively on the new computer.

 

My basic workspace is NASB and Bible Knowledge Commentary, which I have running fine. It is necessary to create appropriate workspaces, custom copy format and so forth. It is like I am a new user, but it has been a long time since I had to go through all the set up.

 

I'm trying to create a new Copy Bible verse style with the following directions:

 

Creating a new Copy Bible Verses style

Follow these steps to create a new Copy Bible Verses style that will copy and paste text, without footnotes and bibliographic citations, into Word or other word processor:

1.     Open the Copy Bible Verses dialog (click on the black Bible icon on the right side of the Windows Taskbar, by the clock).

2.     In the Copy Bible Verses dialog, click on the Customize button.

3.     In the Manage Styles dialog, click on the New button.

4.     In the New Style dialog, click into the Name field and type a name for your new style, such as "No Footnotes/Citations."

5.     Leave the Copy Footnotes and Include Bibliographic Citation boxes unchecked.

6.     If you want text before or after each passage, click into the appropriate field and click on Special to choose Full Passage Reference, Short Passage Reference, or other text.

7.     Choose to Copy All Text or Copy Bible Text Only.  You will see an example of the style in the box just above the OK and Cancel buttons.

8.     Click OK to save the new style.

9.     Check the Style Preview window in the Manage Styles dialog. If the text is displayed correctly, click Close. Otherwise, click on Modify and make additional changes to your style. Click OK and Close when complete.

 

The complication presently is that the display now does not show the Bible icon on the Windows Taskbar. The user window looks very different now and I'm missing something on setting up the workspace.

 

It seems like I need to go to a seminar, use instruction videos or something.

 

I shall upgrade to Version 4 before the end of the year and do not want to put in a great deal of effort and expense on relearning Version 3.

 

I need some help in setting up a custom copy Bible verse style.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Win 7 does a few things different to Win XP and you need to click on the Taskbar to see the Notification Area

 

If you want to base a style on an existing one, select it and then click Copy instead of New.

How you create CBV styles is different in Logos 4, as most things are as the UI is much different.  The wiki has many good pages of info on how to do things, specifically for creating CBV styles check out this page:
