I am trying to create a collection for my journals.  I have several hundred to add.  Anyone know in Logos 4 how I can add multiple resources at the same time to my collection?  I tried clicking and holding down shift and also trying to do a "select all".  All I can figure out is adding one at a time!

Anyone know how to add multiple resources at once?

For journals it's easy

TYPE:journal

Done.

Thomas Black:
Define TYPE:journal

type needs to be in lower case, thus

type:journal

put that in your rule box and your journal is done.

Ah well yes, lowercase of course.

Jeff,

What Thomas showed you is part of the new 4.0 'dynamic' collection feature. By specifying what type of resources you want to have in a collection you can create the collection with greater ease and it will automatically add any new resources you add to Logos to your collections if they match the criteria.

It doesn't work for everything, but when it does it is very nice.

It doesn't show Semeia for instance.

When you write just "Periodicals" 

or     "subject: Periodicals"    and put few extra things (in my case Nelson Preaching Sourcebooks) into the minus box, and you are done.

EDIT: to just make sure you have everything even in the future, you can do the following:

type:Journal OR subject:Periodicals

Good call Bohuslav,

type:magazine, type:journal  OR subject:periodicals

That also grabs Christian History Magazine.
