• Do visual filters work on the iPad?
    1. No, I'm afraid not
  • The Logos User Education team has created a variety of original language visual filters available to all Logos users. You can add any of these to your personal Logos Documents and customize them to your needs. Read more here: https://support.logos.com/hc/en-us/articles/360016529972#example-visual-filters
    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!

      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)
    7. Does anyone know a way to create a Visual filter for citations and/or allusions to the Old Testament in the New Testament? I can do it by brute force with {Speaker <Person Isaiah>}, {Speaker <Person Moses>}, etc. Oddly, I cannot get {Speaker <Person Scripture>} to work, even though the quotations of Deuteronomy 30:12-14 in Romans 10:6-7 are tagged this way. There seems to be a lack of consistency in the speak tagging in the Penteteuch. Sometimes the speaker tag is Moses and sometimes Scripture. I have don't think there is any tag for allusions.\ All of this data is in the New Testament Use of the Old Testament tool, so the tags could be added to the Bible.

        Try: {Speaker <Thing Scripture>} or {Addressee <Person Audience of Scripture>}
    8. I really think that I am missing something in the new way that Logos does highlights. For years now I have been highlighting passages about various topics (God's Character, Grace, Salvation, etc.) and was able to see a document with all of those specific highlights. It seems no longer. I am able to associate a notebook with the highlight pallet, but the notebook is blank and doesn't show everything I have highlighted in the past. I tried to do a visual filter in ESV to show, but the list of visual filters available to me does not show all of my created highlighting pallets. (Some, but not all) So, as of right now, I am trying to do a specific study on God's grace that I have been highlighting, and am unable to see a list of those highlights. Can anyone please help me? What am I missing? The two images that I uploaded show what I am talking about. One shows the highlighter pallet with a pallet called "Grace - 0 - Study" and the other shows the visual filters available to me and under highlights it goes from "E" to "H", not showing any of my various pallets on Grace. Thank you for any help, direction, advice that you can give. This is concerning as I have dozens of highlight pallets with hundreds of verses correlated over a decade of study and I don't seem to have easy access any longer to seeing them.
      1. The list of entries in the Visual Filter is not the list of palettes in the highlighting tool - it is the notebooks that contain either notes or highlights relevant to that resource. Often they have the same name as - often - the notes document (pre Logos 8) used to store notes and highlights had the same name as the palette. Some questions: 1) What notebook is associated with the "Grace - 0 - Study" palette? 2) Do you have any notes or highlights in that notebook? 3) If so, would you expect any of them to show up in the ESV? (So either specific to the ESV or notes on verses that would show in all versifed resources). Only if conditions 2 & 3 are met would you expect to see the notebook (identiifed in 1) in the visual filter dropdown for the resource. Above you say that notebooks appear but are blank. When you migrated from Logos 7-8, Notes Documents should have been converted to Notes Notebooks with the same name and the contents moved across. Are you saying that this didn't happen? This if - of course - a separate issue to whether notes and highlights created directly in Logos 8 appear correctly.
      2. To answer your questions: 1) The Notebook "Grace - 0 - Study" is associated with the palette. 2) There are no highlights or notes in the notebook currently 3) I have hundreds of highlights in ESV that use that palette, so I would expect them to be in the notebook and in ESV. I am saying that they didn't migrate, or at least I can't find where they migrated to. That is my main question, how can I get access to these and also see them as a visual filter. So, should I be posting in another section?
      3. 3) I have hundreds of highlights in ESV that use that palette, so I would expect them to be in the notebook and in ESV. - so just to clarify do these highlights show in the ESV at the moment? So, should I be posting in another section? - that is probably a good idea. Either in the Logos Notes Faithlife Group (as it seems to be more of a Notes issue than a Visual Filter one) or in the Logos 8 community forum at https://community.logos.com/forums/147.aspx. Personally I would recommend the forum but I don't know if you are used to engaging with those.
