I cannot quite figure how to make best use of all the Thompson's Chain resources. I am using the "Cited By" tool and that helps with some of the resources.

Has anyone created a layout with all the resources set up so that they are linked to each other? It would be nice if a guide, layout or workflow or something came with the package of resources. And a short video on how to use it.

The Thompson's Chain references are similar to the Catholic Topical Index in the Verbum software, right? The Catholic Topical Index works so nicely with the Catechism and the Cited By tool.

Is it possible to have something for Thompson's that works as well as the Catholic Passage Guide?

I see a video discussed in the post, but no link to it.

The picture is a start. I can see the A links on some of the top right resources, but no links on the lower right resources. Are the lower resources linked?

Can we upload a doc to the Public Docs, if we figure one out?

I have the LearnLogos.com VIP video for the Thompson stuff that is referenced but you cannot save a layout to the public docs, So I will write about it in my blog and put the link here later this week.

In this video, Larsoa Johnson (a former WordSearch employee) describes how to use the set and towards the end of the video shows a layout that WordSearch trainers recommended.

It is a WordSearch video but you might be able to get some pointers from it or emulate the layout in Logos.

The VIP and WordSearch videos were both helpful. Thank you Rick and Matt!

Here's my take on it but I believe we have better things in our libraries than Thompson Chain Reference Library, but here's help to buld a layout.

For the benefit of others, and my curiosity on what other people think, what is better in our library?  Let's just assume the person you are pitching to is not familiar with Logos or the Thompson Chain system.

My target audience is former wordsearch users that are now Logos Bible Software users and they love the Thompson Chain Reference Library so I wanted to help them accomplish what they can do in wordsearch. Additionally, Kathleen asked specifically about a layout so she is part of the target audience too. For someone not familiar with Logos then I would not mention the Thompson Chain Reference Library. Later this week I plan to post to New Users of the software to help them succeed.

When I was in WordSearch.... I had a "layout" that used the TCRL.... When I was transferred to Logos.... first thing I did was re-create the WordSearch layout ... in Logos.  And I still use it.

There may be better resources in Logos.... but since I know how to use what I had.... then I use it. 

It may not be for everyone.... but my theory is ... "if it works... don't fix it!" lol. 

Many times....  I open my Thompson Layout (in Logos)... find what I want and travel on.... 

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

My use of Logos is affected by what I use in other software and in hardcopy, and also what the people around me are using: above, beside, and below.

Thompson topic numbers and Strong's KJV #s are still being used by people. And like we talked about the KJV, they are not copyrighted.

"Better" is almost always expensive and copyrighted, and quickly pulled from the market and replaced with a different better. "Better" is sometimes unattainable and inefficient to people trying to live scripture literally and fully. "Better" is sometimes throwing out the baby with the bathwater. "Better" is sometimes nothing more than different, an expensive different.
