Steve Strong:
does this mean there is not a way to transfer my research to Logos?

Steve, please see the reply I made to this same question in this thread from another WS user a couple weeks ago - it's just a handful of replies up if you scroll up. Logos does not have an its own internal word processor, but you can use just about any word processor to open and use those documents.

If you really want the documents as resources within Logos, you could convert them to .docx format using Microsoft Word, and then import them into Logos using the Personal Book Builder - assuming that module is part of your Logos package, which I believe it was allocated for some WS software levels but not all.

Logos/Faithlife has not given any indication as to what plans they may or may not have for providing some other kind of solution for the WS documents. Personally, because it would crash so often and lose my work, I gave up on the WS word processor years ago and converted most of my WS documents from HTML to a professional word processor format.

Austin,  Your email response sent me here so I will repeat my question. The response above for data and document transfer worked for my personal notes, lists, and highlights. My specific concern is 700 "Sermons and Illustrations" which I have accumulated in Wordsearch over many years and which still don't get picked up in the doc transfer script. Your note above has been the same for the 9 months of my querying since Logos conversion

"Sermons and Illustrations, and other Wordsearch document types  We are still deciding how to handle these document types. Your feedback on which document types are the most important for us to focus next is appreciated."

With end of WS support now upon me I am concerned that this initiative will get dropped.

I really don't want to lose 700 sermons.

Thanks for your response that included me. I am sorry to hear your plight. In my conversations with the Logos support team, they told me that the transfer was still in beta and therefore they could not help me. They advised that I could get help through the forum. But they also said that few people had raised problems in the forum as to problems with transfer of documents. I initially thought it must be a problem with my knowledge or my computer. But with the answer that I have now received: that Logos cannot transfer anything on the Wordsearch word processing, I would think there are numerous Wordsearch users who used the word processing who are materially impacted by their inability to transfer our work. The "solution" I have been told to date is that I should transfer all of my work to my word processing in my computer, which is "better". I have been trying to look into waht that entails and it appears to be an incredibly time consuming project because it will not tranfer cleanly so every document has to be cleaned up individually. It also apears that trying to copy and paste from Logos directly into my computer word processing will not be clean and will be materially more cumbersome. Please let me kow if you learn anything else.

Ron, please check for a "Wordsearch Edition" of your Logos Bible and see if the highlights are there.

I am not exactly sure what you are talking about but the highlights are in my Wordsearch program on the king James version Bible but it is not in the logos program. Yesterday I uploaded the Wordsearch 12 information as requested by the email I received from you

Sorry for the confusion. Your Logos software may have two copies of the King James Version. I just wanted to make sure that you are looking at "King James Version (WordSearch Edition)" and not just "King James Version".

I have done the back up, did the import, and got the message that it was finished. I opened my logos app and cannot find any of my messages from wordsearch in logos. Is there a special place that I need to be looking other then the under the docs tab?

Most of the Wordsearch data shows up in documents whose name starts with "WS". What is a specific example of what you are looking for?

I have looked in the documents and there is a WS Sample doc but none of my sermons from WS are in my docs.

I created a test document so I could have something easy to search for. Did the back up again and the import again and I am still getting nothing, even if I search logos for that particular doc.

Unfortunately neither "HTML Documents" nor "Sermons and Illustrations" are currently imported. See the original post and some of the replies above for additional details.

Stepping in....  I was a WS 12 user.... Had NKJV in WS...  but now when I click on Library and then type in "NKJV" I only get one.... am I supposed to have 2 (one for Logos and one for NKJV (WordSearch Edition) ????

xn = Christan  man=man -- Acts 11:26 "....and the disciples were first called Christians in Antioch".

No. We generally mapped a WS resource to a Logos resource, where one already existed. In a few cases, we created a new one, where one was different enough from the other.

This is a tragedy.  The Sermons and Illustrations database was top notch.  Easy to understand, easy to search by date, by a word, by a tag.  With only about 3 years and inconsistent use, I have 200 sermons and illustrations.  I can't imagine what it must be like for some others.

Fortunately, because of my insistence on using the Harvard outline, and the fact no one other than LibreOffice seems to handle it properly, most of my sermons are backed up individually by date.  I guess I'll continue to take the same precautions as I use Logos.  As we seem to get closer and closer to finding out which view of the tribulation is correct, I'd hate to lose everything at the flip of a virtual switch.

Ron, do you have any notes or highlights in the Notes feature? (Click "Tools" and then "Notes" in Logos Bible Software.)
