I'm thinking of using the Passage Exegesis Workflow and Notes to do the research for my next exegesis paper.

What is your opinion?

The stock Exegesis Workflow is a sound method of study. I would begin working through it. If you find that there are elements you want to change, eliminate or modify, you can create your own process (workflow) using the stock offering as a foundation.

Thanks Fredc--I've heard that Notes is not good with Workflow but I will give it a try.

There are two problems that have no simple work-around:

  1. One gets a long string of note indicators which is being worked on.BUG??? Workflow Notes
  2. The granularity of the notes are larger than one generally wants for exegesis - but one can handle this by structuring the note and/or adding anchors.

The note feature within the workflow documents are not great, but they work. The good news is that when you take the first not in a workflow, a notebook for that workflow is automatically created in the Notes Tool. That gives you access to the notes from the Note Tool where it is easier to edit, and modify a note. The notes fields inside the workflows are compatible with Rich Text keyboard commands. If you're like me, if I don't have a list of Rich Text shortcuts in front of me, I am probably not going to remember what they are.

Thanks Fredc--I only know the bare basics of Notes so I'll have to learn some more advanced techniques.
