Excellent work - thanks for your labour of love for the community!

Just a little FYI - I believe Miscellaneous on P47 (and in the ToC) is incorrectly spelt.

Thanks again.

Thanks for your comments Floyd, Jesse, and James.

Good catch James; my sMelling Checker isn't catching the headers. Fixed it (but didn't upload a new version of the manual for such a minor edit).

Floyd, I struggled with this question; I couldn't decide. BUT, because of your comment I went ahead and changed the cover on the post with all the download links (I used BUE v2-8w).

MANUAL (LOGOS VERSION) BOOK COVERS

PAISLEY  PAISLEY8  BLUEv1-8b  BLUEv1-8w  BLUEv2-8b  BLUEv2-8w  WHITEv1-8b  WHITEv1-8w  WHITEv2-8b  WHITEv2-8w

Which is your favorite?

Thanks.   One comment on updating the file: You have Delete old file then add new one.  I always add the new one and then delete the old one.  That way if I get distracted before I add the new file the old file name is still there to remind me what I was doing before I got distracted.  Have recently modified the directory structure of my PBB library and found it useful to have the old file name there when I added the new one.  Then Delete before Build.

[SOLVED] PROBLEMS REBUILDING A BOOK WITH THE LOGOS PERSONAL BOOKS TOOL

This has been a tricky stinker for me as well. I've found that I have to do 2 things to ensure that rebuilding a book goes well:
1) Be connected to the internet
2) Close and reopen Logos before rebuilding a Personal Book

Regarding the Renaming of the source files, an alternative method for you David, may be:
1) Rename the old file (e.g. "logos-manual-20190725.docx")
2) Then put the newly downloaded updated version (i.e. logos-manual.docx) in the same directory the past version was in
3) Now, "BUILD BOOK" (you won't need to RIGHT-CLICK DELETE previous versions, nor will you need to "ADD FILE...")

I'll add these steps right into the manual.

Hi Gerald! Sorry for the trouble you're having. Perhaps try to:

Copy the link > Open a new browser tab > Paste the link > Enter

If that doesn't work, perhaps try the above, but in a private (incognito) window. If that doesn't work, please contact me and I'll just email the files to you.

Your Servant in Christ

Hi Mark, To my knowledge, everything in the current manual should still be valid for Logos 9 (but, not everything will be valid for Logos 8 at this point). Also, although most of the manual is valid even if someone has the Free versions of Logos, there are some things in the manual -- that apply only to paid versions. I hope this is helpful.

Hi James! I seem to somehow have missed your post way back when. Thanks for this catch; it's fixed now.

Mark: I think I now understand why you made this statement. On the 1st page of the manual, there was an image of the word "LOGOS 8 BIBLE" -- but it was cropped to simply say "LOGOS". "LOGOS" is what showed up in the Word and PDF versions of the manual, but when imported into Logos as a Personal Book, it seems that cropped areas of images 'uncrop'. Interesting little bug. So I fixed that and if you download the newest versions of the manuals and import into Logos, that "8 BIBLE" should no longer be there:

MAJOR UPDATE to LOGOS VERSION of the MANUAL

20210125 Edits (all 3 versions are updated -- but it affects the Logos Personal Book manual most significantly)

  • CROSS REFERENCES – Rebuilt all cross-references (internal hyperlink) so cross-references now work in the Logos Version of the Manual
  • HEADING COLORS – Changed all Headings from BLUE to BURGANDY to differentiate from the HYPERLINKS (which Logos auto converts to blue upon Personal Book import).
  • TITLE PAGE LOGO – Changed Logo from “LOGOS 8” to “LOGOS”

The download links can be found here: https://community.logos.com/forums/p/182780/1057673.aspx#1057673
