How can I find a map and then find a specific city?  I am confused about the maps and would like to know how to use this 

feature if possible.  Do I need to purchase another module to have the maps displayed?  Thanks for any help.  Not very good at this yet.

Cheryl,

If you want to open a map without right-clicking the name of a location in any text but instead start from scratch, then type: show biblical places in the command bar.

 

 

When the Biblical places floating window comes up...then type the name of the city you want to find.

Cheryl,

Here's the same thing on the Mac.

Then type where you want to see.

And there you are! Smile

Every blessing

There's an even faster way to do this, if you jealously guard every mouse click and keystroke:

I'm not sure that's fewer keystrokes. Didn't you have to type the whole "open biblical places to malta"?  Whereas, two clicks on the menu, and type "malta" does the same thing.

Don't be silly Todd!

1 mouse click = 3.1427 keyboard strokes.

Everyone knows that!

How to get logs and post them. (now tagging post-apocalyptic fiction as current affairs)

While I don't use as precise a measure as that, the speed at which most people can type far outpaces the speed at which they can locate small targets on the screen with the mouse and click on them—I believe there's even a keyboard shortcut to move to the command bar, but I can't remember what it is at the moment.

Thanks, very helpful.  I have another question, when I right click (control +click) on highlighted place word I do not get a map showing the place highlighted.  Am I doing something wrong or does Logos not do this?

thanks

I'm not quite sure what part of the application you're talking about, but there isn't anywhere I can think of that we do this with only a right-click. However, in most (all?) Bibles, you can click on a Person, Place, or Thing and quickly jump to the applicable Biblical People/Places/Things entry:

Thanks for the help everyone, hoping I can learn the ins and outs of this program.  I really like it better than Accordance so I hope to learn this Logos.

God bless

Cheryl
