I have been working with creating templates for studies. I want to be able to keep a note page along with exe. guide attached to the template, but it seems this is not possible.

If I make notes, they do not stay attached to my study, I always find them in separate area under "files", this is inconvenient, are they planning on making it where your notes stay with your study?

Welcome Back!  I am glad you have been sticking with it and even showed up here again.

Unfortunately I really do not use the notes system in Logos, so I can't really help, but what do you mean by templates?  Layouts?

I'm glad you asked this question. It made me play around with it a bit. You can add a note to a guide. See the picture below. This note will be available whenever you open the guide. the section seems to fit full formatting, or at least the basic formatting I tried out. It also lets you hyperlink, which didn't seem to work the last time I tested it. I create this note in Word and cut and pasted it into the note section. Is this what you were looking for?

Phil,

I see where you are talking about which a good feature, but, if you set up a template, then click the "+" to add a tab make it "exegetical guide", then again to make it "notes", close the template and reopen- the lwo tabs are not there, and any notes you have made are no longer attached to that study.

You can only locate them under "files" then "notes" on the home page.

Whyndell,

Don't want to ask a stupid question, but did you resave the layout?

As I said above, I have litle experience with this feature, but doesn't it come up under "my files" at the top of any passage guide run on this text?  The few times I played with this in beta it did.

That was going to be my 2nd question how do you save these?

Like we use to the "save workspace", which I sorely miss.

Whyndell,

this is another way...

Make a layout including your notes...and all of your study material....

name it and exit...

It opens to that same study including the notes when you next choose it..

 

ALSO...

if you don't use the homepage; I don't...if you close logos with this layout open...it will open to this same layout when you relaunch....very convienent.

You save layouts by draging a layout over to the left side of the layout pane.  You can then rename it to anything you want by using the pencil icon.

Dragging doesn't work for me, but this would be cool if it did!

Phil,

I tired your suggestion and it worked- exe guide and notes stayed with study- and thats what I need it to do.

Thanks

Philip..

first...thanks for the dragging layout tip...I didn't know that..

Second...in this method where you make notes in a PG...next time you run a pg...do you get the same notes?

I might want to take notes specifically for a certain thing..and not see them when I just happened to be in Matt 4 again....

Your welcome. You can also save both of them in a favorites folder, then to open up those two items next time simply right click on the folder and select "open all these favorites"

Yes. I'm pretty sure it saves the notes. Thats why a way to see that there is a passage guide made for a given range of verses while reading the Bible would be so helpful. I am REALLY glad that hyperlinking in these boxes works. If there is a book that goes in depth about a passage I can add it to the passage guide by putting it in the notes!

How do I change the page layout- something like if you put a verse in the home page?

Phil got it figured out on how to change layout.

I saved as a favorite but it does not save my EG and Notes- I always have to return to layouts to retrieve the full study.

Any Ideas?

Whyndell,

that's why I've been using layouts...they "open up all of your references" automatically and get you right back to where you were...your train of thought, so to speak.
