  • Re: A Question About Clippings

    This thread has morphed from my original question about Clippings into a discussion about the design of the new Notes. I am going to make this one final post and then I am D-U-N since I never intended to get into this discussion in the first place. First, a true anecdote. Many years ago, I was asked to set up a new company within the company that I

    [quote user="David Taylor Jr"]How is a Clippings document more focused than notes?[/quote] David, I most certainly did not want to go into extra innings about Clippings v. Notes/Notebooks and, in fact, I'm not sure I can explain it much better than above. It's something we would do better to sit down together and play at on a computer. Nevertheless

  • Re: A Question About Clippings

    Thank you for everyone's input. Just for clarification, I have always thought of Clippings as essentially an electronic 3x5 card suitable for apt quotes, aphorisms, brief illustrations, etc. Although there was/is much overlap with Notes/Notebooks, they do function in a slightly different way. As I see it [ and I make no claims of infallibility] , Notes

    [quote user="David Taylor Jr"]You are using the wrong function.[/quote] David, Thanks for your input, but FWIW, I think my use of Clippings, as described above, is exactly what it was designed for - Logos Help says, "A Clippings document stores brief excerpts from a resource in their entirety, and can be annotated like a Notes documents." Regardless

  • A Question About Clippings

    This may be one of those questions which results in a head slap once it is answered, but I have yet to figure it out. Here goes ... When I am reading a book and want to capture, say, an apt quote, I open a new, blank Clipping and then right click on the highlighted quote in order to add it to the new Clipping. I then add a title, tag, and/or notes as

  • Delete Unlicensed Resources?

    We used to have to run the command 'Delete Unlicensed Resources' as a matter of housekeeping in order to remove traces of old, temp-licensed resources. Now that L8 is here, is this still necessary? Perhaps it was done away with under L7 and I just never got the memo?

    [quote user="BillS"]I ... will risk saying why.... by using a "fact-checker" we think we've fulfilled our duty to test the spirit of every teaching to see if it's from God.
