1. One method for saving address in a resource is to save it in Favorites. Note that Favorites is synchronized across your devices but it is not a document so it cannot be shared or restored. To open Favorites go Tools --> Library --> Favorites.

2. Create a new folder and rename it to something appropriate.

3. The quickest way to save an address is simply to drag the tab of your resource over the file name so that it will appear as a subordinate entry. You may have multiple levels of entries.

4. Another way to add an entry is to click on the Add function of the Favorites pane. Note I used highlighting to show where the focus was.

5. When you hover over an entry in Favorites you see a preview; a click will open the referenced resource in a new pane; a shift+ click will open the resource in a floating window.

6. If you use the Add function, you will want to drag and drop the reference to the correct location in your favorites.

7. While Logos uses the correct offset to preview multiple addresses in the same article, it does not give them "appropriate" names; it just added a numeral to keep them unique. Therefore you often will want to rename the address entries.

8. I have now given bother entries an appropriate name for the sub-article level.

When I only want to mark the book as a favorite in a specific subject, and I'm not concerned with saving a location within that book, I prefer dragging the book title from the library, and then the popup will display the cover/summary view of the book instead of a page/location within the book. Like this...

Nice, I had never tried that.
