  • Re: Installing Logos after reimaging Windows

    [quote user="Michael A. Mnich"] Dear Folk, Are there files I can backup for my library, settings, etc. in Logos; so I will not have to re-download everything after a Windows system reimage? What are they? Not only does it take a long time to re-download, but then it takes a long time to go through my library and place in the cloud all the resources

  • Re: Tool to distill the essential meaning?

    Just thought of another way to make this easier, though it requires hardware you might not have. If you have a Stream Deck you can assign a syntax marker to each of the keys using the Text function under the systems menu. This makes it extremely easy to add the Argdown syntax to the text that you've pasted. (You might want to paste it into Word first

  • Re: Tool to distill the essential meaning?

    This might not be what you're looking for, but here is a hacky solution that might build on MJ's suggestion. Argdown works through Visual Studio Code to automatically create argument maps from Argdown syntax. You could copy and paste the text you want to map into VSC then, as you read along, enter in the Argdown syntax. Once you're finished reading

  • Feature suggestion: Pop-up for tags after highlight.

    After selecting text with the cursor, a pop-up menu appears with quick selections for highlighting, copying, appending a note, etc. This is great, but here is a way to take the intention behind this and make it even more convenient: After choosing to highlight the text, give us another pop-up menu to quick-select frequently used or last-used tags to

  • Re: In defense of Lexham Context Commentary - a rant and a reason to buy it

    Perhaps I'm mistaken, but I get the impression that you think this commentary is best suited for those who need to be pulled out of their naive Bible reading where all they can see in the text is their interpretation. But what counts for relevant context is also an interpretive issue. Take, for example, part 5 of Longman's "How To Read Genesis" which

  • Re: Lexham Context Commentary?

    [quote user="MJ. Smith"]By focusing on a single type of criticism, it serves as (a) an example of how that criticism works (b) illustrates the strengths and weaknesses of the method (c) gets one sufficiently comfortable with the method to call it out when misapplied or seek more information when needed (d) serves as a bridge from Rykan's works to Bible

  • Automatic Layout Function for Canvas

    Recently I've been using Canvas quite a bit to see if anything has changed since its release. I usually use mind-mapping software like MindNode or Rationale. One thing I like about Canvas more than the mind-mapping programs I usually use is its high degree of flexibility. The biggest drawback to Canvas is that there is no automatic layout function that

  • Re: Lexham Context Commentary?

    Not sure I understand why these resources exist. Nearly every commentary I've read has thoroughly discussed context, not just at the beginning but throughout the shifts or sections within a book. And not just the broad or narrow context, but both.

  • Re: Five Solas Question

    Reformed is usually understood more broadly than Calvinism, such as a greater appreciation for Covenant Theology. All variations of Reformed would be Calvinistic in soteriology. You'll occasionally hear some Presbyterians don't think Baptists are consistently Reformed (and vice versa), but this sort of boundary drawing really isn't taken too seriously

  • Tagging Notes

    It would be helpful if the field for entering tags to notes also contained a list of frequently used and last used tags.

  • More fine-grained control of connection arrows in Canvas

    When making connection arrows in Canvas, it can be difficult to get the arrow head pointing the right way. For example: And when I try to fix it: (Apparently this is either hard to do right or often overlooked, since I have another concept mapping program that has the same problem.) One solution would be that when the connector is selected and, thus

  • Database design suggestions

    Recently I've been thinking of creating a relational database around theological and philosophical categories. Designing a database around, say, item inventory and customers seems easy enough, but I've been finding it more difficult to think about how to lay out a relational database around theological or philosophical issues (I've been working with

    Lots of phone apps provide good document scan functions.

Right now my favorite app for scanning documents

  • Re: Linux version of Logos Bible Software

    Two bugs/missing features with Logos on Linux that I didn't see mentioned in the Google doc: 1. The copy/paste function from within Logos is buggy. Specifically, it seems to be the paste function after something is copied from within Logos. Sometimes it would work, sometimes not. It seems as though the copy function was successful each time, because

  • Re: Linux version of Logos Bible Software

    Yesterday I installed Unbuntu 19.10 and then overnight I installed Logos. In the morning I was having the same thing you mentioned, Frank. The indexer would freeze around 73%. Restarting the program twice didn't fix things, but restarting the computer did solve the problem.

  • Re: Improve Highlights to Appease Pen Advocates

    Robert, From your description it sounds like you might not be aware that you can already link notes together (they just don't have their own connector style). Or maybe you are already aware of this and your emphasis is just on connector style? Anyway, for those who may not know, you can add links within notes to other notes. Let's say you want to have

    Print. If I want to pull a lot of quotes from the book or will reference it a lot in the future I will also buy Kindle. If Matchbook is available I will almost always buy Kindle version too.

  • Re: Linux version of Logos Bible Software

    Installed on Ubuntu-MATE and it works great. It is pretty slow, but that's probably due to the hardware being almost a decade old (I mentioned 12 years earlier, I double checked and it was 2010). Impressed with what you all have done.
