  • Question about Parallel Resource Sets: 1. In the default Parallel Resource Set for Bibles, Lexicons, Commentaries, and Dictionaries, after my preferred resources are listed, other resources are included in the list in a seemingly random selection of resources and a random sort order. What is the selection criteria and what is the sort order? 2. Can either the selected list or the sort order be changed?
    1. Just FYI, with any resource window, you can always hit F1 to open the Help file on the particular thing you're looking at. From what I can tell, the preset Parallel Resource Sets are listed by however they are ranked in your library. You can create your own User-Defined sets by creating a Collection and then clicking the box in the Collection for Show in Parallel Resources. This Logos Help page may help you further: https://support.logos.com/hc/en-us/articles/360018068751-Parallel-Resource-Sets
  • When I click on the training videos I receive this message - 400 Bad Request Request Header Or Cookie Too Large. I am on my laptop and I can get back to the training?
    1. We are checking this now. If you continue to have problems click the “help” button and contact us.
  • I wanted to take advantage of the sale that was going on late last year for MP Seminars but was already subscribed, so it wouldn't let me. My subscription expires this month. Is there any discount offer to resubscribe?
    1. Send an email to the contact form on the MP Seminars website, and they'll tell you what the best current price is to renew.
    2. Thank you!
  • I discovered an anomaly with Tag naming. A tag name with a colon ‘:’ such as "Lexicon:Greek" -- 1. will be found if selected under the “My Tags” Filter section 2. will NOT be found when entered using “tag:” or “mytag:” in the “Find” box of the Library or the “Start with” box of the Collections window. The extra colon seems to confuse the search. A dash ‘-‘ or an underline ‘_’ as a separator in tag names will be found.
    1. just put quotation marks around the full tag. If you search mytag:”Lexicon:Greek” you should be okay. or search mytag:Lexicon AND mytag Greek and you should get the same results.
    2. I had tested the quote marks configuration, and neither tag:"Test:Tag" nor mytag:"Test:Tag" works. I just now tested the "AND" version that you suggested by simply trying a search on the second half of my Test:Tag tag by specifying mytag:Tag - that produced no search results. Using tag:Tag also produced nothing. Specifying mytag:Test (the first half of the tag) did produce results, but it included a resource with a tag Testing:Tagging. It seems the additional ':' in the string causes search confusion so neither the whole string nor just the post-colon string is found. If a separator is wanted, is seems dashes and underlines are safe choices.
    3. I have colons in many of my tags and have no problem searching them. Let me try some tags like yours and see if I can discover anything.

    Questions about Parallel Resource Sets: [Edited to move original questions #1 and #2 to a separate thread.] 3. The following does not seem like correct behavior: - Double click on a word in my Bible - my preferred lexicon opens - right-arrow through a couple of lexicons - click another word in the Bible - a new lexicon tab opens with my preferred lexicon instead of in the same tab Is that an error? i.e., Rather than setting the existing lexicon tab back to the preferred lexicon, a new lexicon tab opens. To remain in the same lexicon tab, I have to set it back to the preferred lexicon each time.
    1. If you go to the icon with the numbers in a box, you see all open panels. You can then delete them, or swipe upwards.
    2. Thank You!!!
    3. Yes, setting "Send Hyperlinks Here" forces the tab back to my default lexicon after my navigating through some Parallel Resources in the tab. (I had thought Logos would detect that I was using Parallel Resources, and would reset to the default, but it seems it only sees a tab open to another lexicon, and it has to open another tab to my default.) Thanks for the answer.

    I am in the process of tagging my non-versified commentaries and have moved the list Morris shared in group documents to my documents. There are 150+ in the list. Do I have to tag each of them individually?
    1. In your library pane, select the Collection filter and look at your list. Morris' collection should be there. If you click on that, then all of those books will be listed in the right-hand side of the pane. From there, you can select all of them at once and then apply the tag. Hope this helps.
    2. Laura, thank you so much, worked like a charm.
  • Hi, first post here, let me know if I get something wrong. Recently got membership to MP Seminars, working thru Camp Logos 1, Essentials. Morris has a section on Concordance in Tools. In my Logos package using Logos 9, there is no Concordance Tool. I do have a Concordance for my NASB. Are other Concordances part of separate dataset(s) or with each resource or a Logos package upgrade? Thanks.
    1. The Concordance Tool requires Bronze level and above. If you have the Starter package, you would need to upgrade to see and use the Concordance Tool.
  • I feel like a total newbie. My Bible text is multicolored. I do not know what I did to obtain this view nor how I can change it back. Can you help? (see attachment)

      Open your preferred Bible. At the top of that window, next to the magnifying glass, you should see three dots stacked (described as a stack of cannon balls). Click on that and there are MANY options in the dropdown. Actually, when you hold your mouse over the cannon balls you should get a description pop-up that says "Visual filters"
    2. OK, thanks, David! I see I was just not quite as familiar with how words are highlighted in Logos as I thought.
    3. It looks like you downloaded the sample Greek and Hebrew morph Visual Filters from Morris Proctor. They will be at the very bottom of the "Cannon Ball" window under the Visual Filters item. You can deselect individually or all of them.
  • For some unknown reason my library has changed from an a to z listing to a z to a listing. How do I turn it back? I can not seem to find any way to do it and do not know why it changed to the z to a list. Thanks to all.
    1. Most likely click on the heading that changed (title, author…)
    2. That did it. Everything is back to the a to z list. Thank you for your assistance!
    3. I believe most searchable products of any kind are like that. Click any column header and reverse the sort order.
  • I believe I posted a couple weeks ago but I also emailed (on 12/9/21) to morrisp@mpseminars.com a question regarding the webinar. I have not received a reply yet...
    1. Thank you Joshua!
    2. Hello Joshua Rowe
    3. Thanks Joshua, That will work and is simolar to another workaround Mo has mentioned. Strange the Logos folks do not want it to be used.
