I'm trying to create a simple link to multiple verses, in this case Matthew 4:3,6 in a note and in 4.5 when I highlight that, choose the link option on the toolbar, and put in that as the link it doesn't create a link. It does seem to create links fine for individual verses though. Is there a certain format I have to use? This seems like it should work fine.

Using Logos 4.5 on PC that has automatic hyperlink creation in Notes, noticed two hyperlinks were created for:

Mt 4:3,6

One hyperlink is Matthew 4:3 for "Mt 4:3" while "6" has hyperlink to Matthew 4:6 (individual verses)

In contrast, Mt 4.3-6 has one hyperlink for Matthew 4:3-6

In a Bible, can copy location of one verse or contiguous range of verses as URL:

logosres:esv;ref=BibleESV.Mt4.3-6

Logos support has Bible book abbreviations => http://www.logos.com/L4/support/biblebookabbrev

My point though is that if it's a single verse I just can use that verse as the link. I don't have to create some sort of logos specific hyperlink structure. Is it not possible to do that for a range of verses or more than one verse? If that's the case it sounds like a bug, especially if the Windows product can handle it.

Logos 4 can hyperlink for a contiguous range of verses or one verse in a note.

What KS4J is telling you is right. If you type in Matthew 6:3, 6. The auto-verse recognition should create a hyperlink for you (you shouldn't have to do this manually. 

However, if your verse list is in parenthesis, followed by a comma or period, it won't always work. For example, (Matthew 4:3, 6), the "6" won't automatically be highlighted.(This is a known issue)

There are two ways to deal with this. The first is to highlight only the number "6" (in this case) and then link it to Matthew 4:6 in the hyperlink field. The second is to put a space after the "6" before entering the close-parenthesis, and after it highlights, delete the extra space. If you play around with this a bit you'll see what I mean. I typically do it the second way, since it's easier to do (though harder to remember each time), but either has the same result.

Does this answer your question?

Using Logos 4.5 on Windows 7, noticed two hyperlinks are automatically created in a note file for Matthew 6:3,6; one for Matthew 6:3 and another for Matthew 6:6

In contrast, one hyperlink is created for Matthew 6:3-6 (the "-" is contiguous so hyperlink has verses 3, 4, 5, and 6).

Also may want to look at Passage List.

I'm on Mac, not Windows 7. It does not create any hyperlinks automatically (which is frustrating). The ones I created manually aren't working either and I'm pretty sure they were before 4.5. This sounds like a bug.

I didn't notice before that this was in the Mac forum. I have no information on how this works with a Mac.

If this is a new issue in 4.5 it should be reported as a bug.

Unfortunately, that feature is not yet enabled in L4 Mac.

Agree that does sound like a bug. It would probably be best to start a new thread with the word "BUG" in the title. Log files would also be very helpful in determining the cause of your problem.

Manually created links still work in my system (Mac OS 10.5.8)

Understand frustration for a known feature parity issue:

Wondering if Notes are being displayed Full or Compact ?

If Full, then concur with bug.

If Compact, suggest clicking "Full" to change Full font color to black, then try command + click to open hyperlink.
