Hello All!

I'm continuing to learn more and more of L5 - especially creating my own content.  Something I have wanted to create/compile is a file of illustrations and stories that are searchable in My Content (or in the Illustrations Section of the Passage Guide, maybe? Similare to how my 7700 Illustrations Book does)  I'm not sure how to properly approach this, yet, and haven't found a tutorial/forum post that has helped so far.

I thought maybe I could personally color-code a highlighter color that I mark in the books in my library (ex: Purple Highlights are Illustrative Stories) and then run a search through those highlighted passages based on a Topic or key word.  Then for Illustrations I compile outside of my Logos library (personal stories, those from magazines, websites, etc), I was thinking of creating maybe a Personal Book/s, but am unsure if that is the right way to approach this.  

Could I then "tag" these items with a subject the Illustration/Example/Statistic is about (ie: greed, friendships, charity, etc.)

For example - I was reading a book on Marriage that mentioned aspects of Martin Luther's marriage and thought it would be great to set aside later when I ministered on relationships/etc.  How would I be able to take this story from being buried under all the results of a full library search and be readily available as an Illustration?  

Any help and insight would be much appreciated! Thanks for your time!

There are two options that come to mind.

  1. Create a Clippings document for illustrations. You can add subject tags to every clip help you search by topics later.
  2. Create a Personal Book, see  for some links to documents with sample syntax.

Thanks Kevin! I'll take some time to check those out today - I've been using logos for a few years and really enjoying it, but am new to creating my own content. I also saw your signature links links and will search the Wiki as well!
