Logos is awesome! I've used it for years.

However, Notes have always stumped me. So I'm looking for some best practices for using Notes to prepare for an expository sermon. I want to highlight in resources, compile them into a singular document, and be able to draw from them to write into a sermon manuscript with the Sermon Editor.

What are your Notes best practices for this type of work?

Yes, but I do not use it because I do not like the way workflows create copious useless notes in some case. I prefer guides and layouts.

Does this turn into a Note document or is it a different kind of document within Logos?
