Somewhere I thought I saw where there is some functionality between Evernote and Logos Notes. Is anyone familiar with this? Thoughts or tips?

I used Evernote a while back. I'm currently keeping notes in Obsidian. The only functionality I know of are links between the apps. You can make a note in Logos that contains a link to your note in Evernote and vice versa. 

Link to completely fictitious note in Evernote:

Likewise, you can link to Logos resources in your Evernote note:

logosres:esv;ref=BibleESV.Ge1.1

- or -

Hi Paul,

Alongside having been using Zotero for some time (with all my Logos resources exported into it), I'm considering using Obsidian for academic research for a course I'm starting. I have lots of notes in OneNote, but I'm wondering whether that is suitable for not just recording topics and thoughts, but connecting them, using the note, section, pages hierarchy and tags.

Do you have any comments or advice on how you have found using Logos and Obsidian? Such as using notes and clippings, or links between Obsidian and Logos? Particularly, if you make clippings in Logos, do you have a workflow for getting them into Obsidian, with the cited resources linked to Zotero?

Any advice would be very helpful. Thanks.

John,

Disclaimer: I do not use Logos notes or clippings, but I haven't really tried them in the last few years. I always found Logos notes slow and clunky. I prefer notes in markdown format so I can use any text editor to read my notes. The only feature I really miss from Logos is hovering over a scripture reference and seeing the text. Admittedly, that is a big downside.

I remember using OneNote when it first came out. It was great. I did end up losing my notes which is why I value markdown files and backups.

For academic research, I've seen several posts on the Obsidian forums as well as Mac Power Users forums. I'm sorry that I don't have specific links. I've seen Zotero mentioned but I have no knowledge of that app or its capabilities.

For Bible notes in Obsidian, I keep notes in folder structure by book of the Bible with individual notes by chapter. I also have a separate folder for Bible places, themes, people, theological terms, etc. Within the chapter note, I link to these other notes. The other notes also backlink to the chapter notes. Linking to other notes in Obsidian is the easiest I've used by far. I usually just link to Logos resources by using the keyboard shortcut in Logos.

Having just finished Tiago Forte's book, Building a Second Brain, I'm thinking through making a few changes to how I use Obsidian and few other tools.

Thanks for your detailed reply Paul. That is helpful.

Edit: I had put a few paragraphs of comments on OneNote, Zotero etc. but on reflection it seemed that those were off topic for the Faithlife forum so I deleted them.
