Richard Wilson:
Here is an update to my Index of Bible Studies, with the addition of the contents of a couple of Logos 9 packages and a few other books I have added to my library. There are now 2134 Logos resources included and 67,620 links. I will repeat here the instructions to use it.

Thanks Richard.

Richard, does this very cool utility support Verbum? I'm getting an error message (running Verbum) that Logos is not running:

************** Exception Text **************

It should support Verbum as well. There are technical details, that both Verbum and Logos should export the same COM object. I'm not sure if that is true, but nobody has mentioned a problem with Verbum in the previous years, so it should be true. The problem might be that the object exported is not properly registered in Windows. Two suggestions:

1. Did you unzip the downloaded zip into a new directory, that contained not only the program that you executed but also another file?

2. You can try to register the COM object manually. You need to find the main program. With Logos, it is c:\users\<username>\AppData\Local\Logos\Logos.exe , so with Verbum it might be c:\users\<username>\AppData\Local\Verbum\Verbum.exe , but I'm not sure. Anyway, then you need to open a Run window (for example, press the Windows key and while it is still down press the R key), and type a command and execute a command there. With Logos, the command is %LOCALAPPDATA%\Logos\Logos.exe /register , so with Verbum it might be %LOCALAPPDATA%\Verbum\Verbum.exe /register . But if you found a different file name or directory, use that.

Thank you Richard, manually registering verbum.exe did the trick.

BTW, your path/naming assumptions for Verbum were correct.

-----

This file contains links to sermons, meditations, outlines, journal articles, Bible study guides, and more that do not appear in the Passage Guide. (Exception: some sermons now appear in the Passage Guide, but did not when I started, and I thought I would not remove them.) It is useful especially when preparing Bible studies or sermons on a certain passage, to find more ideas on the passage from your library that you can use.

To install the Index, download the Index Bible Studies.docx file, then use the Personal Books tool of Logos to create a new personal book. You can use whatever title you like, but it is best to set the type to "Bible commentary". On page 3 of this thread you can find a book cover that you can optionally use. The message https://community.logos.com/forums/p/65323/1093313.aspx#10933132654.Index Bible Studies.docx gives graphical instructions for this installation.

The index contains the books in my Logos library – there is a list of the included books at the end of the Index Bible Studies.docx file. Naturally, I cannot include books that are in your library but not in mine. However, it is possible to exclude books that are in my library but not in yours, which makes the resulting personal book easier to use. To create this personal index (Windows only):
1. Download and unzip the MyIndex.zip file.
2. There should then be two files in a directory. Start the Index Bible Studies.exe program, which will open Logos (if it is not already open), read the names of all the books in your library, and then create a file My Index Bible Studies.rtf in your Documents directory.
3. Open the My Index Bible Studies.rtf file in Word or another word processor and save it as a docx file.
4. Create a personal book from that docx file, in the same way as described in the previous paragraph setting the type to "Bible commentary".

How can I do this on mac? I just finishing adding to Logos but there's so many resources that I don't have it's unusable. Fantastic idea though!

Unfortunately, the filtered version of it uses a technology that's only available on Windows (Richard clarified this back in 2014)

Do you also have a PC? I would think you could install logos on a pc, run the file, and then port the resulting document to your Mac. A lot of work though

In my post on September 9, 2019 (on page 9 of the topic), there is an alternative method for Mac to create a file with only books that you own. It is not updated (it will not have the books that I purchased in Logos 9 packages), but it will be a good start.

I tried several times to update the file to the newest one which is this is 6663.Index as it kept stopping about 1/4 of the way through compiling. Has anyone else had this problem?

I downloaded the file and installed it.  I find that I have another file just like this one, that looks like something you put together, because I'm seeing a lot of the same books.  Could that have been yours too?

The reason I am asking is that the book won't build

Bruce: 6663 is not the most recent. Try rather 48476.Index Bible Studies.docx that is in my message of January 2021.

Larry:
There are different versions of the Index of Bible Studies, as I have added more books to it.

For both of you, I'm not sure why it is not building. I will do some tests and see if I can work out the problem.

Richard, thanks for pointing out that I had the wrong file. Not sure how that happened. I'll try the new one and hopefully it will build this time.

Richard, I tried updating with 48476 and it is doing the same thing where it seems to be stuck at 20% in the "converting" stage.

Bruce, just a remark from my side - I just compiled the 48476 on my SSD-driven Win 10 machine running L9 latest beta - unfortunately I didn't wait until NASB2020 had been fully indexed and so it looked like your screenshot, seemingly stuck (with no entry in the PBB-logfile). I just let it run and it finished after 40 minutes.

So I think all is well with the file and the PB compiler, it just takes long for a huge file with lots of links and milestones, especially if the machine is doing something else, like indexing, in parallel.

Thanks for the suggestion. I left it run for 30 minutes but maybe that was not long enough. I'm doing it again now and I will let it go for at least a few hours. Hopefully by then it will be completed.

Update. I let it run as you suggested and it compiled in about 40 minutes. I too have a SSD, so it makes me wonder how long it would take with a standard HDD.

For anyone else having this problem I would suggest that you just wait and be more patient than I was originally. Smile

I was having a problem that didn't quite sound like any of the others described, but I wasn't sure. I ran it initially and got an error message that Logos was not running even though it was. After several attempts that issue mysteriously went away, but then it would act like it was working just fine, then at the end it would tell me that it couldn't find my books, even though it seemed to have found them. Finally I thought I would try the %LOCALAPPDATA%\Logos\Logos.exe /register and see if that helped, and it did the same thing, but that time my antivirus (AVG) popped up with a warning that the program was trying to change the file in my protected documents folder. I allowed a permanent exception, then ran the program again, and it worked! Thank you very much for this. This is a feature I was really wanting with Logos. I have maybe 10,000 books in Logos and I didn't seem to have any efficient and thorough method of searching by verse like this.
