WHY A MANUAL WHEN LOGOS HAS HELP FILES, VIDEOS, FORUMS, ETC?

I've created a Logos training manual that imports very nicely into Logos with the Personal Books Tool.

I give it to friends, family, colleagues -- but primarily I use it to train Christian business owners / leaders in South America to enhance their ministry to family, neighbors, employees, and clients. God has blessed me, through Logos, to apologetically minister and evangelize; this manual has been a big part of that for me.

I have a two-fold purpose in posting the manual here:
1) To bless anyone who might benefit from it
2) To get any feedback that folks might provide to continually update / improve the manual

DYNAMIC DOCUMENT
For the most part, this manual is designed for beginners; but I plan on making regular updates to it and eventually adding more advanced topics. This is a dynamic and evolving document and I expect major changes in the future.

UPDATED VERSIONS
The download links below will always contain the most recent version of the manuals. When I release a new version, I'll post to this thread -- so be sure to subscribe if you are interested in being notified of updates. I will not put the version history on this post; instead the update / version history will be kept in the manual itself.

I'm very interested in enhancing, innovating, and debugging the content in the manual. All of your suggestions, critical feedback, and ideas are warmly welcomed Smile

HELP
I can't seem to get Bullets or Cross References to translate from Microsoft Word to Logos Personal Books -- if anyone has any ideas please post that here.

HOW TO USE THE MANUAL
There are instructions at the very beginning of the manual -- explaining how to import it into Logos, and giving suggestions for navigation in Word or a PDF viewer / editor.

Hi Scott

Would be very interested in your Logos manual. Will you be posting the docx to this forum anytime soon.

Have a nice day.

I presume the links are not live?

[Edit]: I see links are no longer live, pending approval.

Hi Gerald and Gaolu.

Indeed, after hearing feedback from some forum members, I decided to remove the file download links -- until I checked in with leadership to make sure this would be appropriate.

I sent an email to the general forum contact email yesterday, as soon as I hear back I'll post here.

Sorry... I sometimes have a tendency to put the cart in front of the horse.

Grace & Peace,
Scott

Here are the links! I received such a supportive email from Logos, that I thought I'd share it:

My pleasure Floyd and Leo!

FYI, there was a major flaw in the WORD and PDF versions; they're corrupt...

I was unaware that two pages from VIEWING RESOURCES > Truncated Resource Tabs & Command Box Abbreviations kept duplicating themselves in the section INDUCTIVE BIBLE STUDY > PART A: OBSERVATION -- each time I constructed the Table of Contents.

 

So if you downloaded the LOGOS version, you are fine; if you downloaded the WORD or PDF version you should re-download (I fixed the bug).

This is excellent, Scott! Thank you for putting so much of your time into this!

My one suggestion is that you put what version number of Logos this is for in the cover image and in the document text somewhere. Most of the features are probably present in Logos 6, 7, and 8, and some even as far back as Logos 4, but some might be only in newer versions, and some features have changed significantly even from 7 to 8.

Wow Rosie... I hadn't even thought of that; you're absolutely correct. The title page of the manual now has the "8" in it -- and here's a second version of the book cover.

Here's a thumbnail of what it looks like:

Thanks so much Rosie! Glad we caught this early on :o)

The original post still downloads the cover without the "8" - can the original link also point to the revised cover? I happened to see this post, so I knew to go hunting for this new cover - others may not be so lucky.

Blessings,
Floyd
