how do I bring my sermons over from L3 into version 4. I thought there was info on this when L4 was first released but didn't pay attention to it then.

thanx,

The actual sermon file feature has not been introduced to L4 yet; though you can import the sermons you have in the sermon file add-in from L3 the same way you can import notes, passage lists, etc.

Just type import all in the command box in L4

The source files cannot be imported! If you have a working L3 installation the compiled sermon file (*.lbxlls) will be copied to your L4 \Resources folder and appear in Library with a title "Sermons of Terry Stump" (have you checked this?).

If necessary you can type Scan <Sermon folder> into the Command box of L4, restart L4 and it will begin the process, including indexing. The default location for the Sermon file is "(My)Documents\Libronix Resources".

I defer to Dave's knowledge of L4; but i thought I remembered my sermon files showing up AFTER the import function was implemented in L4 and I imported my user created files from L3

I have yet a third memory of when the sermon file came over. But Fred, you are right that the user-created sermons came over to L4 but Dave's point was that it was the compiled sermons not the source files that came over. So I think we're all approximately right.Big Smile

I concur with Dave's knowledge since I recently added some new material in my L3 sermon file module and had to do nothing other than restart of Logos 4 and the updated file was recognized and brought across to L4.

I guess being "almost right" is better than being "totally wrong". Huh?

I tried all the different suggestions and lost count on restarting logos. Crying

Needless to say I still haven't got them into L4. Can I just copy and paste the file into the L4 folder? where ever that is.

thanx for the suggestions anyhow.

Not copy and pasting into folder won't work as it will not be added to the database upon which Logos 4 is built.  Logos 4 must recognize the file and incorporate it.  It should show up in your library as a monograph with the Title 'Sermons of.......'.  It will not appear in passage guide unless you add it as a custom collection.

What is the name of the file that you intended to paste into L4? Where is it located?

Can you still create Sermon files in L3?

Dave mentioned it in his first reply but have you checked your Library for your sermons? You will not find them in your file list where you find your note files, passage lists, clippings...

I looked in library for sermons, terry, glory, basically any key words I thought the sermon file would be called, but my sermon files don't show up. i did the import all in the top command line of L4 but it didn't bring them in. i did the Scan <Sermon folder> and it brings up tools Scan <Sermon folder> but nothing comes over. like i said i restarted L4 alot.

now i talked to logos support and they said the best thing to do is continue here cause they didn't realize you could bring your sermons over yet so heres a bit more info.

What is the name of the file that you intended to paste into L4?     Glory in our Midst.lbxsfl

Where is it located?                                                                                   the file is found here           C:\Users\Terry\Documents\Libronix DLS\SermonFile

Can you still create Sermon files in L3?                                               yes, in fact the only one i wanted was the one listed above that i just created a few days ago in L3.

Also,

1.  are all the sermons compiled into one book with a title page and every sermon listed separately (the way mine is) or is each sermon compiled individually as individual books (the way mine is not)?

2.  i noticed "Glory in our Midst.lbxsfl" is an lbxsfl file, not an *.lbxlls like you had mentioned Dave.

thanx

Am eagerly following this thread, Terry.  Once fellow members of the Logos Community help you, they will be helping me also.

         Way back when I first used L4 last fall, the program found my single "sample" sermon and it is in my L4 library.

         Once I learn how to scan for sermon files, I will be doing more of them and scanning them into L4; so thanks for your posting!    *smile*            Peace and Joy to you always!

Philippians 4:  4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. 5 Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand..........

Terry you won't see the individual sermon in Logos 4.  You need to look for the collated book of Sermons,  that will go under the name   Sermons of...... .

For most people that will be Sermons of  username  so for instance in your case it will probably be Sermons of Terry Slump.   I have changed mine so it shows Sermons of MPC  to reflect it is a collation of the sermons preached by the ministry team at the church I fellowship.

Hopefully these screenshots will clarify what you need to look for in Logos 4: (click on image to enlarge)

The sermon file folder in the My Documents folder is where the source files for your sermons are placed. These files cannot be brought into Logos 4. What you have to do is compile those sermons into a book file. This creates the single book file (lbxlls) that Logos 4 can retrieve by a scan of the Libronix book folder.

This is the source sermon file that you use in L3. It cannot be imported into L4.

L3 compiles your sermons (*.lbxsfl) into one book file (*.lbxlls). To get this into L4 type scan C:\Users\Terry\Documents\Libronix Resources

Hi Terry ,

I was able to transfer all of my Logos 3 Sermon Files across to Logos 4 by typing Scan c:\ in the command box. I had to convert my sermons to Logos 3 through the Sermon File Add in inLogos 3 first.

Thanx Dave,

scan C:\Users\Terry\Documents\Libronix Resources finally brought the sermon files across.

That was simple enough but apparently my computer is very picky about the exact place to scan.Smile

Two other questions. Where in L4 is this compiled sermon file kept and what's it called?

again, thanx for all your help, I certainly appreciated everyone's input.

First it will be stored with all of your other Logos books because there is no no difference between them (or rather there won't be.)  Second, my is called LogosUsersermons.lbxlls  I suspect yours is the same (or similar).
