Hi there and thank for your help.

Lets say I have not prioritised only my Top Bibles and nothing else ... in what order will Logos prioritise my library, meaning, what TYPE of book will follow my favourite Bibles? Lexicons, Commentaries and so on. Or, how will Logos handle it? (My question is not how it will prioritise my dictionaries, commentaries and so on.)

Thanks.

Hi Deon

I’m not really sure what question you are asking / what is behind the question.

Prioritization determines how, for example, resources appears in Guides and in the Context menu. It doesn’t affect, for example, the order resources appears in searches.

If helpful - default prioritistation is shown at https://wiki.logos.com/Default_prioritisation

Library shows resources from sorting/grouping selection(s): e.g. By Title (across all Types). Faithlife has a default prioritization order that is used in Passage Guides, &c. after any prioritized resource(s) for that section:

Thanks for your replies.

Apologies if my question is not clear.

Does Logos have a sort of default list: Bibles, Commentaries, Dictionaries, Lexicon and so on if I DO NOT have anything else except Bible prioritised?

What influence does the order of my Preferred Prioritisation have on the layout of my searches? Or does it not have an influence?

My current order is:

  • Bibles
  • Hebrew Dictionaries
  • Greek Dictionaries
  • Lexicons
  • General Dictionaries
  • Commenatries

Is this a good order? Or, does it not really matter?

Once again, apologies if my question doesn't make sense.

Yes. Curious about your opinion of Logos Wiki page posted earlier by Graham => https://wiki.logos.com/Default_prioritisation ?

  • Lexicons
  • General Dictionaries
  • Commenatries

Logos Wiki includes Prioritizing : LT Prioritize Resources + VT Prioritize Resources

My purchased library has prioritization order (complex from modifying priorities as they appeared in various aspects over 10 years):

  • Advanced Bible Prioritization (so verse reference links within a Bible open that Bible instead of Highest Prioritized Bible)
  • Top Two Bibles
  • Top Two Commentary Series: UBS Handbooks followed by my custom Top 2 Series with Advanced Prioritization for Bible types
    • Allows Right Click lookup of Verse to have Bibles & Commentaries in the Top 5 resources with Bible indexing
  • Bibles: English, Greek, Hebrew, Spanish, Latin
    • includes some Advanced Prioritization of Bible Type since some Bibles have a Word / Topic Dictionary
  • Apostolic Fathers
  • Apparatus
  • Advanced Prioritization for DBL Dictionaries (Hebrew, Aramaic, Greek) of Type Hebrew GK Number & Greek GK Number
  • Advanced Prioritization for Mounce's Complete Expository Dictionary of the Old and New Testament (for pop-ups)
  • Lexicons for Greek, Hebrew, Aramaic (starting with Lexham Analytical Lexicons), which do not have Strongs Numbering
  • Advanced Prioritization for DBL Dictionaries (Hebrew, Aramaic, Greek) of Type Hebrew Strong's Number & Greek Strong's Number
  • Lexicons & Dictionaries for Greek, Hebrew, Aramaic having Strong Numbering, starting with Dictionary of Biblical Languages (DBL)
  • Latin Lexicons & Dictionaries
  • Bible Dictionaries & Encyclopedias
  • Bible Commentaries
    • Starts with Advanced Prioritization of UBS Handbooks & my custom Top 2 Series for data types: English, Jerome, Transliterated
  • Lexham Discourse Glossary, which includes my personal Book
  • General Dictionaries: English, English-Latin, Spanish-English, Thesaurus
  • Book of Concord & Augsburg Confession

FYI: lesson learned from years ago is using one application to modify prioritization order (having more than one libraries open in different installations to prioritize at the same time has sync surprises).

Logos has default prioritization of resources that you do not prioritize, and will ensure there are no conflicts e.g. if you expect a Bible, you won't get a commentary. If you expect a bible dictionary, you won't get a language dictionary e.g. Merriam-Webster.

Deon Holtzhausen:

My current order is:

  • Bibles
  • Hebrew Dictionaries
  • Greek Dictionaries
  • Lexicons
  • General Dictionaries
  • Commenatries

I suggest:

  • Bibles (type:bible)
    • English Bibles
    • Greek Bibles
    • Hebrew Bibles
  • Lexicons (type:lexicon)
    • Greek (NT)
    • Greek (OT)
    • Hebrew
  • Bible Dictionaries (type:encyclopedia)
  • General Dictionaries (type:dictionary) e.g. Merriam-Webster, Concise Oxford
  • Commentaries

Put English Bibles first!

Lexicons (type:lexicon) often have "Dictionary" in their title, so group them by language. Greek Lexicons for OT will have LXX or Septuagint in their title.

    • English Bibles
    • Greek Bibles
    • Hebrew Bibles
  • Lexicons (type:lexicon)
    • Greek (NT)
    • Greek (OT)
    • Hebrew
  • Bible Dictionaries (type:encyclopedia)
  • General Dictionaries (type:dictionary) e.g. Merriam-Webster, Concise Oxford
  • Commentaries

Now I understand my Lexicons & Dictionaries are messed up. Bible Dictionaries are type:encyclopaedia. Thanks for putting this right for me.

Put English Bibles first!

To quote Karl Barth: NEIN! Wink

However, your first prioritized Bible should be one that has a reverse interlinear. And since there are no Afrikaans/Dutch/... Bibles that have a RI I will agree that you should give higher priority to an English Bible.
