• 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. Wonder if restarting Logos has an effect on ESV Visual Filter menu ? When a resource is opened, list of Visual Filters in three dot menu shows until search results cause Visual Filter removal from menu. Search lemma:λόγος is usable in a Morph Visual Filter (finds nothing in Bible or Basic visual filter). Logos Help Center => https://support.logos.com/hc includes Technical Support => https://support.logos.com/hc/en-us/categories/360000667132 that has How to Enable and Submit Log Files => https://support.logos.com/hc/en-us/articles/360027869132 (sometimes enabling Diagnostic Logging causes an issue to disappear) If ESV Visual Filters issue remains after restart, Diagnostic logs should be helpful for human investigation.
    2. 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.
    3. 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.
  • 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'
  • Is there a way to create a visual filter for the 5 W's & H Inductive Bible Study questions for the OT?
    1. You might check through the public documents pages and see if anyone already has created a filter: https://documents.logos.com/allusers?offset=0&sortType=Date&sortOrder=Descending&privacy=All&documentKind=visualfilters
    2. 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
  • 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)
  • 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>}
  • 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.
  • 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.
    1. on that note, if you figure out the word that is used less than 50 times, then you could create a visual filter in order to highlight those words, etc. Are you using this for Greek language studies or something else?
    2. 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.
    1. 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?
    2. 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.
    3. 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.aspx
  • 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.
    1. 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?
