Greetings All,

Is anyone using a free word processor for Mac to create their Personal Books for Logos? If you are what are you using and how is it working out for this purpose? Let me know good or bad.

Blessings,

Tim

I have experimented a little with Libre Office, but since I have Word, I have not played much. Others have spoken well of it.

Thanks Alabama, I gave LibreOffice a try and I think it will work out just fine.

If I remember right wasn't something mentioned about Word 2011 not working with hyperlinks or something like that for PB's?

Thanks much, Tim

Logosref [EDIT: Logosres] links (links to specific places in Logos resources) don't work. Other links should work I believe.

I'll make a note about that one and put it in my PB instructions file I started today to keep track of these things. Thanks again!

LibreOffice 3.5.0 is available for download.

LibreOffice 3.4.5 allows Personal Book docx files to have hyperlinks to logosres:

Caveat: command-click in LibreOffice 3.4.5 does not work, need to build personal book in Logos 4 Mac to use link.

Microsoft Word 2011 automatically converts logosres:#### URL's to file://localhost/logosres/#### so hyperlinks essentially become unusable.  Word 2010 on Windows allows logosres:#### URL's to be used.  Workaround in Word 2011 on Mac is using syntax [[text >> logosres:####]] so personal book text has a hyperlink in Logos 4 Mac.
