• Would it be possible to add a filter to capitalize any words that refer to God? To change "and he said" to "and He said".
    1. Close to it - that's effectively what I'm outlining above.
    2. And by "overwrite" you mean literally you can write the new word over the original one, rather than "replace" the word. As far as I know, highlighting doesn't allow you to "replace" a word.....just add text to it before, after, above, or under it.
    3. You are correct - the sort of highlight I am talking about (see screenshot) will reduce the size of the font of the existing text, give it a white background (so it effectively becomes invisible) and then put a He before it. So this will change a "he" to a "He" and (in the process) will introduce some extra spacing. It's the best I know how to do and, as above, would take a lot of work to be generally applicable.
  • The setup... - I've got a visual filter that identifies certain key words in the gospels. It works fine and I see the key words identifies as I scroll through the text What I'd like... - I want to take the verses containing those key words and put them in a passage list. For some reason I can't figure out how to do this. Anybody have any suggestions???? Thanks!
    1. Borrow the rule from your visual filter. Use it in a Bible search. Save the results to a passage list.

  • Do visual filters work on the iPad?
    1. No, I'm afraid not
    2. Are there plans to make visual filters available on the mobile app?

    1. I'm trying to put together a visual filter that tells me a Psalm is an acrostic. I have a visual filter to note any acrostics in the bible: {Label Figure of Speech WHERE Description ~ "Acrostic"}. The highlighting style is to Insert Text Before "Acrostic" with "Capsule" checked, and a left border. The problem is this applies the Text Capsule to every verse in an acrostic section. Is there a way to have it only apply to the first verse where the acrostic begins? For example Psalms 25 would have the title or maybe verse 1 with the text capsule, but only the border for the entirety of the psalm? See attached image for what I'm currently seeing.
      1. Found a way to solve it. Changing the visual filter to "Basic" instead of "Bible" got me what I wanted!

        Hi there! I like the blue bubble "Capsule" filter, but do not have that available to me as a selectable style. Not sure how I get that - could someone point me in the right direction? EDIT: I figured it out. For those who might come across this. Need to create a custom highlighter resource, which is where you can create custom resource which can be consumed by the visual filter tool.

      Question about visual filters. I want to highlight the word justified (δικαιόω) found in Romans 5:1 in all the Bible. However, when I go to my visual filters and type δικαιόω and the type of highlighting, it doesn't do anything. For many other Greek words, this works fine. When I type <Lemma = lbs/el/δικαιόω> and the type of highlight, it immediately shows. What is the difference? Secondly: is there a faster way add a word to the visual filters? Now I have to select the word, go to the Bible Word Study, copy the Greek and then manually add it to the end of my Visual Filter list.
      1. Secondly question....I do not know of an easier way.
      2. Thanks Michael, this is very helpful. What I did not know is that the three tabs in the Visual Filter actually do something different. They all looked the same to me. So now that I've selected the Morph tab, everything works like it did in the previous versions. With Bible or Basic, not all words are highlighted. Apparently when I downloaded Logos 9, it switched the tab on me...
      3. Faster way for adding a word to visual filter(s) is using Right Click => select lemma => Bible Search, followed by copying: e.g. <Lemma = lbs/el/δικαιόω>
    3. After reinstalling Logos, I cannot see the visual filters any more. Under docs->visual filters, I still have a list of filters, but nothing is highlighted in my Bibles. I recreated a new visual filter, only highlighting "lemma:λόγος". Then opened John 1 (ESV) -- nothing. If I search for the lemma by itself it's fine. Under the three dots, there is no option 'visual filters', only resource, community notes, notes and highlights, notes and highlights (corresponding) and reading plans. Any help is appreciated
      1. With the help of customer support we found the issue. Wanted to write this for posterity :) My filters were based on lemma:λόγος. This worked in the past. The way it works in Logos 9 is that the filter should be based on the word λόγος not on lemma:λόγος. After removing the word 'lemma:' in front of all my highlights, the context menu shows up and everything is marked as expected.
      2. Bible & Basic Visual Filters use lemma syntax <Lemma = lbs/el/λόγος> while Morph Visual Filters can use syntax <Lemma = lbs/el/λόγος> OR lemma:λόγος Newer syntax includes Morphology identifier (lbs is Logos Greek Morphology) and Language (el is Greek), which allows intermixing of Morphologies. Various Hebrew morphologies have different homonym lemma numbering.
      3. Thanks, this is what happened when I upgraded: instead of the Morph filter, it applied the Basic filter. Different result... Thanks
    4. How to share my created Visual Filters with my class?
      1.  — Edited

        Hi Victor, You can share your Visual Filters from right clicking it in the Docs menu. You can either share 'Public' so all can see and use it, or you can share to a Group that you and your class members are part of. Once you have shared it, your class members can go to their Docs and click on the relevant Group or Public tab, and then search for it there. They can then right click it and choose 'Add to your docs'
    5. Is there a way to create a visual filter for the 5 W's & H Inductive Bible Study questions for the OT?
      1. This came up in the forum again today: to see the Visual Filter documents, one needs to be a follower of this group and then go through the menu on the left: COMMUNITY / Bible Study / Logos Documents
    6. Dear, I have a problem. When I apply a filter to the Greek and Hebrew version it doesn't apply. Can someone help me, please?
      1. How I can do it "suggest reindexing resource"?
      2. Jose en el buscador, a mi en otros casos me ayudado otro que es Reconstruir indice. El FV también me funciona en SBL, parece que tienes algún problema en tu programa.
      3. Reindexar Nuevo SBL (is equivalent to English: Reindex Nuevo SBL for reindexing a resource)
