It is quite easy to create a link from a NOTE to another resource in Logos, also to create a similar link to a document and a web site in both Windows and mac. 

However on a Mac is it possible to create a link from a NOTE to a Word or pdf document? It is possible in Windows, but I have not been able to find a way to accomplish this on a Mac.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

Short answer, no, Logos on the Mac does not support this (at least from what I tested).

Long answer, the Mac platform supports this, but apps have different ways of handling the link. Here's how to get the link:
1. In Finder, right-click the file you want to link to
2. When the menu pops up, hold down the option key. The menu changes
3. Click copy as pathname
4. In your writing application, create a link by selecting the text you want to use as a link and pressing cmd-k (usually this is the shortcut)
5. In the link box, type "file://" and then paste the pathname from the clipboard. You end up with a link like this:

file:///Users/username/Desktop/test.txt

Again, each app handles the link differently. Some apps only open finder. Others open the document in the default app.
