Group for sharing Logos Visual Filters: highlighting palettes and visual filters.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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) 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.
- Does anybody know if there is a way to create a visual filter based on word number account? Such as every word which occurs less than 50 times. Kind of it.
- I'm sorry David! I was not here for a long time. Yes, it's for Greek language studies.
- For years I have been doing multiple root or lemma word searches in a passage and leaving the searches open so that I can see when specific words are reused within that passage. I am trying to see all the words in the same passage that are related to each other. I have just discovered visual filters and am hoping to find a way to create one that will highlight all words from the same lemma and another to highlight all words from the same root word without having to specify the word ahead of time.
- My apologies, I don't think I explained well what I am trying to do. Let me try this differently: Using the concordance tool for the passage I am studying (1Corinthians 12:20-26) set to root/count I have selected Verb/Noun/Adjective/Adverb and have all results from with count 2-7 displayed. That gives me 13 root words that are used more than once in my passage. I would love for a visual filter to highlight every use of those 13 root words, individually without having to manually enter them. (i.e. all uses of melos might be blue; all uses of soma might be yellow; both uses of pas would be green, etc.) I really don't care which color is used for what root word. I would doubly love to be able to change passages and have the visual filter perform the same kind of analysis for the next passage and highlight different words differently using the same criteria. Does that make sense?
- A search idea for root Verb/Noun/Adjective/Adverb with count 3-7 in 1 Co 12:20-26 is: <Root = lbs/el/εχω> OR <Root = lbs/el/μελος> OR <Root = lbs/el/σωμα> OR <Root = lbs/el/συ> OR <Root = lbs/el/δοκεω> OR <Root = lbs/el/ειμι> OR <Root = lbs/el/περισσευω> OR <Root = lbs/el/τιμη> OR <Root = lbs/el/χραομαι> Using OR to combine search terms causes results to have different colors. Screen shot shows morph search analysis to count roots in passage with Bible search of roots. 1984 NIV shows Bible search results. For comparison, 1873 AV shows precept symbols plus more filters.
- Expanded search of root Verb/Noun/Adjective/Adverb to count 2-7 in 1 Co 12:20-26 <Root = lbs/el/εχω> OR <Root = lbs/el/μελος> OR <Root = lbs/el/σωμα> OR <Root = lbs/el/συ> OR <Root = lbs/el/δοκεω> OR <Root = lbs/el/ειμι> OR <Root = lbs/el/περισσευω> OR <Root = lbs/el/τιμη> OR <Root = lbs/el/χραομαι> OR <Root = lbs/el/εις:2> OR <Root = lbs/el/πας> OR <Root = lbs/el/πασχω> OR <Root = lbs/el/πολυς> 1900 KJV has Discourse Features (Greek) showing Bold and Grey text (without visual filters), which is discussed in forum thread => https://community.logos.com/forums/t/157735.aspxGrey Text - Logos Bible Software ForumsLogos Bible Software Forums - Forums for Logos Bible Software Users including Product Information, Support Topics, and User Tipscommunity.logos.com
- I downloaded several of the filters by "Keep Smiling 4 Jesus". Is there a good way to make some kind of key or cheat sheet for this? Something so I don't have to research every time I see something I want to see what said mark means.
- Personally use Highlighting Tool to show Greek Morphology palettes, which are useful as a key for Logos Greek Morphology visual filters since the style names have grammatical terms. Keep Smiling :)
- Does anybody know if there is a way to create a visual filter based on formatting? Here is the problem I am trying to solve: The printed versions of the Hebrew grammar and charts from Pratico - Van Pelt are all color coded to show Hebrew spelling patterns and grammar tagging. Unfortunately the Logos version of those products do not have the color coding. However, they do have bold print instead of the color. So my question is whether there is a way to tell Logos to highlight all bold print in red?
- I need help knowing how to access a document. I click on Inductive Precept and I get a page with a box that says "Get Copy." I click that and in a little while a box over on the right turns blue and it has a web address in the box. But I cannot get any farther than that. Nothing I do opens the document. What is the next step? Thanks
- After you click on "Get Copy" for a document in a Faithlife group, the document should appear in the "desktop" (PC, not mobile) edition of Logos under the Documents menu. Can you find it there? Moreover, can use https://documents.logos.com to view a list of all of the Logos documents you've created or copied, and also to delete any that you may no longer desire.
- Is there a way to force a morphologically-based visual filter to change the appearance of every word translated from the @... in question? For instance, I created a morph visual filter for all participles. So, in 1 Peter 1:3, when Peter writes, "...he has caused us to be born again," I'm expecting the participle ἀναγεννάω, to light up all of the English words that come from that Greek term with my filter. Instead, only the word "born" in my English translation is visually changed. Is there a way to get all the other English words, which have been translated from ἀναγεννάω to change in as well? The result would be something like this: "...HE HAS CAUSED us TO BE BORN AGAIN..." with all caps representing my filter here - and "us" being left out since ἡμᾶς is a separate word in the Greek text.
- Great question even though I do not have an answer
- Morph search can find word(s) near lemma: lemma:ἀναγεννάω@V??P WITHIN 4 WORDS (born,"he has caused","to be",again,"we have been","you have been","he has given","a new",birth,anew) Corresponding words highlights word(s) added during translation.
- I uploaded two visual filters for help with reading Hebrew. One of them is for the BHS-SESB morphology and the other works with Logos Hebrew Morphology. The result is that these filters will then show up when using the BHS-SESB as well as when reading an English Bible such as the ESV. I set them to display by color the different major stems and then to display by underline or bordering the different conjugations. These work really well in tandem with the Greek verb tenses visual filter uploaded a while back by another user. 1) BHS-SESB: https://documents.logos.com//documents/187ec859c6c045bcb13eb76c84a136cc 2) Logos Hebrew Morphology: https://documents.logos.com//documents/f2414b24f55f4460b5b7e93be14eaa5a 3) Logos Greek Morphology: https://documents.logos.com//documents/3f6d75cce7ed4df2ab2c46c2119edbbaShare Logos DocumentsView and share Logos documents on documents.logos.com!documents.logos.com
- Let me know if these work... I had to create a bunch of custom highlights and I'm not sure how/if those will transfer with the file download...
- In general: Stems: Qal: Red Niphal: Blue Piel: Purple Pual: Light Purple Hiphil: Orange Hophal: Brown Hithpael: Green All other stems: Light gray Conjugations: Perfect: No change Imperfect: Solid box border Imperfect Consecutive: Double-line solid box border Imperative: Exclamation point added at end Infinitive Construct: One underline Infinitive Absolute: Double underline Participle: Dotted box border
- Thanks for your work in providing the Hebrew morphologies. The custom highlights did not transfer, but I was able to reproduce them simply by using the scheme you listed. I did not realize that it was possible to made custom highlights. I will definitely be using this feature again! I do have a request: The link provided for the Greek morphology went to a blank page. Would it be possible to update it? Thanks. CAB
- Rookie here...looking to learn... Wondering if there is a place (website / document / etc) to look up some basic/commonly used visual filters to enter into Logos? Not looking to do a whole lot yet, just looking to play around.
- Logos wiki => https://wiki.logos.com/Extended_Tips_for_Highlighting_and_Visual_Filters Forum reply => https://community.logos.com/forums/p/128261/834294.aspx#834294 shows my personal set of Greek filters with nominative case (actors) plus verb range (action) being highlighted.
