How do I access tree diagram analysis of a Scripture passage?

Graham Criddle:

Try running an Exegetical Guide on a verse  / passage and then open the "Visualizations" section.

This will show you what is available - in the example below I used the Cascadia graphs (you will see different entries here depending on what you have in your library)

For the OT you get

You can simply open these resources from the library - I just thought showing them in context might help

MJ. Smith:

Logos presents its trees horizontally. Any resource in your library of type "clause visualization" will show you trees of this nature. You can filter your library to find them as shown below:

How do I save changes to the Passage Guide?

MJ. Smith:

You need to edit the template and name the template My Passage Guide to make permanent changes to the default guide. Use either of the following

What is the proper way to report an error in an interlinear?

Bradley Grainger (Faithlife):

How do I find all the definitions of a word in my library?

Note: none of the answers will return all definitions - Logos is not tagged to do that. But they will provide useful results.

Doc B:

Here's one easy way:

(1) Create a Collection of your dictionaries (for this example, I created one called 'Dictionaries- Bible') and name it something you like. Here's mine, and the rule I used.

(2) Open the search window, choose a basic search, choose your collection you just created, and type "transcendence" in the search bar.

Here's what mine gave:

I should have added-

If you use this occasionally, it would be worth your time to tweak this collection to get some specific dictionaries you like in it, then when you run this search in the future, you'll be sure and hit resources that are key to you.

Dave Hooton:
A Basic Search won't give you definitions whilst Topic guide will provide articles on Transcendance when you include a Collection of type:encyclopedia or type:concordance (bible dictionaries). you might also include type:dictionary to get a standard dictionary definition.


When I want a definition of the word "Transcendence" or some other word in Verbum/Logos 6, I use the Look Up command. In the Command bar, I write "lookup <word>", e.g., "lookup transcendence" and wait a few seconds. It opens to my highest priority resource that includes a definition of that word and the parallel resources button shows me what other resources have definitions. The word "Transcendence" gives me a theological dictionary, Webster's, a Latin-English dictionary, and the Catholic Topical Index. "Lookup Jesus" gives me nine resources, "lookup God" gives me seventeen, and "lookup immanence" gives me three. Crucially, the lookup search finds entries in glossaries of monographs and other texts, not just in dictionaries, encyclopedias, etc. "Lookup immanence" gave me an entry from the glossary of Jesus of Nazareth: Part Two: Holy Week: From the Entrance into Jerusalem to the Resurrection, for example. The lookup search does sometimes find entries related to the term you search for, not just the exact term, e.g., my first result for "lookup Jesus" was an article titled "Jesus Christ" in a Bible dictionary, and one of my entries of "lookup transcendence" was "Transcendence of God".

How can I set the order the Bibles appear scrolling with the right and left arrows?

Keep Smiling 4 Jesus :):

Prioritizing Bibles allows right arrow to select next higher while left arrow changes to next lower; wiki has => https://wiki.logos.com/Prioritizing

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."
