Its almost embarrassing, but I have been using the LOGOS program since 2006, and am  still intimidated by technology. Investing the time to learn it is my biggest obstacle.  However, this summer, my goal is to do just that, invest my time to learning more.  I appreciate the expertise and the step by step instructions. Thanks for your patience and encouragement!!!!

Good for you! It's definitely worth taking some time and pushing through some of the discomfort to learn to use this software. Once you catch on to how it works, you'll wonder how you ever got along with out it.

If you have any specific questions, post them here. We Logos users are very understanding about how intimidating Logos4 can appear at first.

But do start with the videos, both these: http://www.logos.com/videos and these: http://wiki.logos.com/Logos_4_Video_Tutorials

Don't be intimidated by the large number of videos. Many of them are quite short. Just set aside some time each day (or each week) and begin at the beginning and work through them until you begin to feel like you can do some of this on your own.

If you still have questions, let us know. We'd love to help you get the maximum blessing from this amazing software.

Karen, thanks for your post. I've used Logos since 2005 and have NEVER even scratched the surface, despite having even purchased product manuals (Logos 4), along with videos. However, I'm also determined to turn this ship around because it makes no sense to have such a powerful program and resources at my disposal and not use 95% of it. So, I'm in with you (not that you invited me Big Smile and am determined to become, at least, a proficient user before September.

Lastly, don't let technology intimidate you. I LOVE technology and yet I've not been disciplined enough to carve out dedicated time for Logos. Your encouraging post is helping me to make this goal of mine (learn LOGOS 4) a reality. So, I'm even committing right now to dedicating 30 minutes a day (3 days a week) towards Logos training until I can build it up to 4-5 hours a week. 

Thanks for the inspiration.

Blessings!

I also have just begun using Logos 4.  I did a Hebrew translation and loved how much easier it was to have the Hebrew verbs identified for me.  But I went back to the books I use for Greek translation because I have not yet figured out how to get an interlinear as my favorite translation.  I debated whether I should sign up for a Continuing Education course this summer, but have decided to reserve time instead for watching tutorial videos this summer and getting more out of Logos.  I was glad to see someone with a similar situation.

Kenley, if you know which Bibles have interlinear capabilities, then go to the home page,

 

and make it your default Bible. Sorry about the white space.
