Really happy about the Sermon Editor.  I have 13 Sermons/Bible Studies saved.  Thank you for adding it and working on improvements. 

Is there a way to organize sermons in folders?

Thanks

I had a problem today with the Editor. While typing a thought and requesting a slide, I noticed that there were SEVERAL duplicates of the text that I had typed. When I tried to erase them, instead, the processor deleted only some of them and erased text that I wanted to keep. I don't know how it happened, so I cannot duplicate it. But it cost me two hours of sermon prep.

Is this now possible on L7? Looking to use some of our own media for slides and it would be great to include them in the sermon editor for easy use and export later.

Question, are there plans to add more text formatting features to the sermon editor? Color choice, fonts, and highlighting would be very useful.

Some of this is possible today - have a look at "Speaker Styles" if you haven't already.

Mike Tourangeau:
Being able to edit the wpm would be great esp as many transition to the tool and don't have the page breaks to know approx how long this will take.

We plan to add this in a future update.

I was just thinking about how awesome the sermon editor is......I now use it for every sermon. It saves a ton of paper and is very reliable. I would like to see the wpm setting be adjustable as Phil mentioned above. It's not major but I find my wpm more along the lines of 60 wpm (2400 words usually takes around 40 min)

Another cool idea that I think I heard somewhere is that there could be a little "pulpit" symbol on a passage that we have preached from (like a note icon). You could then click on it and go to the sermon.

This way if you are scrolling through a passage or referencing a passage you can look at what you said about it last time......

That would be niceSmile

But I just wanted to check that you are aware these sermons do appear in various guides (assuming the required information is entered in the "sermon info" section) as well as in the Factbook. Look for the "Sermon Documents" subsection in the Sermons section

I like this idea for when you are scrolling through a passage. (It's nice that they are in the passage guides too.)

I need help!
I clicked on a button, unfortunately I do not remember which (something with a view) and now everything is just white.
My sermon is gone and also the formatting bar.
I have already looked in the window menu, but find nothing to switch the View back to normal???

Hi Matthias - and welcome to the forums

Sorry to hear you are having problems

Try closing the Sermon Editor panel and opening it again.

If that doesn't resolve it please start a new thread in this forum for this

I know now which button it was. It was the "outline view" button.

Does somebody has any idea?

Welcome to my world I have not been able to use sermon editor for almost a year now and other features in logos are not working either.  It is fairly frustrating

Ok, the problem is solved.
It is a problem of the German surface.
If you switch the language in the settings in English, then you can open the editor normally and undo the setting.
Then you can switch the language back to German.

I am a new user of the sermon editor. I'm not a pastor but I'm putting together notes for a class and I really like this tool.

However, I wonder if there is a way to add the current document that I am working on to a link set?

When I add a verse reference, it changes to a link that I can hover over and view, which is really nice, but if I click on the link, it always opens a new Bible tab. I would like for it to open in the Bible tab I already have open and which is in a link set.

Is this possible? Am I doing something wrong when clicking? I want to jump back and forth between my bible tab, my other resources, and my document, without having new tabs opening all over the place.

Thanks

I am also new to the sermon editor.  I tried it last night but I had several issues with it and gave up in frustration.  I will be speaking on proverbs soon so I found the Lexham Background slides for proverbs in the media tool.  Clicked on them and said send to new sermon document.  The sermon editor opened but it had no slides.  I had to manually add each one.

Then after that, I added in several verses I wanted to talk on but I couldn't move the slides around once they were in there.  Lastly, I had Pr 2:4-5 as a slide but I wanted to change it to 2:3-5.  When I clicked to edit the slide I had to type in everything manually.

Am I just dense/ignorant or is there a easier way to do this w/ less frustration?

Have you tried selecting "Send Hyperlinks Here" on your Bible tab dropdown menu?
