Logos 4 notes is a great feature, but not the best word processor. Could we please have a solution to prepare notes in another text editor and then import as Logos 4 notes?

Thanks for listening,

Not a bad idea.

The problem comes with tagging them to the right place in the right Bible. This is quite complex and would be very difficult to set up in a way that would work with everyone, without creating an application to do that, and Logos has said they don't want to create a word processor.

What you can do is type your notes in Word (e.g.) and copy/paste into a note you create in the conventional way.

For extensive or lengthy notes, this may crash the program (there was another thread about that here recently), so remember the notes design is to be short annotations to a text. There may be some other incompatibilities with Word as well (I dont' think Notes will handle graphics, e.g.), and if you find them, report them here so the rest can learn along with you.

For something more extensive I create a file in WordPerfect (like Word, but better in a lot of ways, IMHO), and store all my extensive word-studies, etc., in a sub-folder of My Documents called "Study" (I know, very creative!). I just need to make sure my title helps me find it later. Google desktop can help  in that regard too.

RTF would be a great universal format for this.
