It seems Logos is trying to be too clever with the new software. They've forgotten the basics or made them more complex.

No more 'click' to follow a Bible reference link, now it is 'ctrl' + 'click'.

Shifting a note file position now takes three times as long to scroll laboriously to the desired position etc.

I do like the scripture references being automaticaly recognised when typed in a note file.

I have not (yet) figured out how to link a Strongs number to the location in Strongs Concordance.

Hi Graham

Graham Billinghurst:
I have not (yet) figured out how to link a Strongs number to the location in Strongs Concordance.

If you open Strong's (I have the Enhanced Lexicon) to the location you are interested in - in this example I am using #1343

Then type some text into a note which you want to link to this location and select it

Go back to the lexicon / concordance and copy the location as a URL

then paste that into the hyperlink field in the note

If you then hover over the text you get a popup with the information in the lexicon, if you Ctrl-Click you will go there.

This is an example of the method outlined at http://wiki.logos.com/Notes#Creating_hyperlinks_to_other_resources

Hope this helps

Graham

This allows you to edit the surface text while leaving the hyperlink (which could go to any book in your library) unchanged. Ctrl+click is standard for hyperlink execution in every word-processor I know.

I've found that if I turn off the note display in the resource It's linked to. (Use the tri-circle dropdown to uncheck the Note file's title) then it will function better. You can turn on the display again once you're finished editing.

I think the notes function in L4 has more uservoice request than any other function.  Here are some other requests for improved note functions:

To have photos in notes: http://logos.uservoice.com/forums/42823-logos-bible-software-4/suggestions/613917-please-make-importing-pictures-in-notes-available

To add tables and attachments to notes: http://logos.uservoice.com/forums/42823-logos-bible-software-4/suggestions/959045-ability-to-add-tables-attachments-such-as-pictur

To be able to use color and other font changes within notes: http://logos.uservoice.com/forums/42823-logos-bible-software-4/suggestions/1241063-give-us-back-the-ability-to-format-our-notes

A security function to prevent notes from going to the internet: http://logos.uservoice.com/forums/42823-logos-bible-software-4/suggestions/660833-add-an-option-that-allows-a-user-not-to-upload-the

 

I would not be surprised if there are more uservoice requests for notes, these are just the ones that I know about.

Hi Graham,

Thanks (again). The Hyperlink worked fine. It's something I will be using quite frequently.

Six months on and I still find it frustrating to have to use Ctrl + Click to go to a Bible reference from my note files!

1. I can go directly to a Bible reference from any publication in my library with a simple 'Click'.

2. I can go directly to any Strong's number from the Interlinear with a simple 'Click'.

3. I can go directly to a Bible reference from my Bible Reading Plan with a simple 'Click'.

4. If a want to edit the surface text of a hyperlink I can click outside it and use the arrows to enter and edit - this happens rarely.

5. If I want to go to a Bible refence from a note file I prefer to go directly with a simple 'Click' - this happens frequently!

6. If I want to use a word processor AND use hyperlinks in it - I will not use LOGOS.
Logos is specialised Bible software it needs to be a leader in it's field not a seond rate copycat of word-processors or any other type of software.

I bought Logos to enhance my Bible reading and study of the Bible - not to discourage and frustrate it! When that happen's I use it less frequently and for shorter times !!! !!!!!!!!!!


MAYBE navigating directly to a Bible reference from a hyperlink in a note file with a 'Click' could be selected by the user as an option.(Then those who prefer to use 'Ctrl + Click' would be content and all the others who prefer to use a 'Click' can do so.)
