      1. How can I upload something on a PDF file into my media and also can I upload pictures from my IPhone into my media notes? Thanks for any help.
        1. I like this idea for the books I haven't had time to convert to "personal books!" It's a good placeholder. I'm still trying to convert all my pdfs to word then make word personal books though, because then you can link the personal books so the references open Bible passages or other links in Logos. It's a lot of work though, and I have many PDFs that are not yet converted.
        2. For PDFs I haven’t converted I use Orbis+ in Nota Bene to search through them. Still gives me powerful searching of PDFs.

      2. I am looking for a way to include the citation for a passage inline with the passage rather than a foot note (or in addition to the footnote). I copy material from a commentary or other book into my sermon notes in Word and I would like to have the reference information inline so I don't have to search the bottom of the page for the information. I find it difficult while preaching to get the information from the footnote. How can I accomplish that?
        1. Thanks, that gives me the inline option I'm looking for, but it doesn't create the footnote as well. I guess I was hoping to be able to do both at the same time.
        2. If it’s a Bible verse you can use Copy Bible Verses to customize it however you wish.
        3. Hi Dave, This is more of a Microsoft Word issue than Logos. However, the easiest thing is probably to manually copy/paste the footnote from the bottom of the Word document and place it inline on your own.
      3. You know oat the top right every time there is an update you can click and see what has been updated I deleted this can I get it back?
        1. Thanks I had this on my short cut bar and guess I deleted it maybe it will come back.
        2. Thanks I got it back when I added a new book
      4. After many years of using Logos, I have at last come to see the light of Mo’s wisdom of tagging.  I'm now working at tagging all my resources.  As Mo has said, monographs contain many jewels that are easily overlooked without tagging.  Maybe I'm over zealous by tagging even the non-monograph books. I'm getting worried that some subject groups (i.e. CommentaryExegetical) could become so large that the number of hits in a search would too unmanageable to sift through. Should “Non-Monograph” resources be tagged at all? I thank you for your advice on this.
        1. I learned a long time ago, and quite honestly struggled in that learning process about order of words. This was back in the beginning days of computers and warehouse inventory. Their rules always placed the noun first, analogous to what George said about the broader category. The noun is then followed by adjective(s). An example pertains to authors, I tag some but not all authors. When I do tag, the tag begins AuthorThenName. My problem is sometimes I'll go with AuthorFirst_nameLast_name, but sometimes I'll use first & middle initials instead thus breaking my naming rule. But Logos covers for me, because it will group all Author tags together when the library is sorted on mytags. Then there are just times that a naming rule won't make sense, and voila another variation surfaces until another idea or more information pops up and a grouping category can be used. For example I've got 2 standalone tags: Quran and Religions. the Quran tag will probably stay like it is. But the Religions tag not sure where to put the one resource that is in. I have multiple tags that group under Tradition, like TraditionLuthern, or TraditionRomanCatholic or TraditionCatholic but can't seem to find a subset for that one resource in the Religions tag. Someday it'll come to me :)
        2. I tag all the books I can, even Bibles, commentaries, etc. Some I need to go back and add more tags to. All of my books aren’t tagged. If I can’t come up with a logical tag for them, I don’t, but most of them I can.
        3. Tag those resources with #LATER and as you find time you can read more and maybe come up with a logical tag, maybe #DoesNotCompute or Illogical
      5. I am trying to find all the rhetorical questions in Luke. I've chosen Bible Text in Luke-Acts in NRSV. I go to "One Person Asks Another Person a Question". I complete Speaker as Jesus and Addressee as A Person. I receive no results. What am I doing wrong? This is a Windows 10 PC with Logos 9.14.0.0022, Basic features, 7 Library. Thank you.
        1. I really believe it has to do with the version (7?) you have and that it is basic. I can't believe they had you pay $300 for something that would not help!
        2. FYI Sure you are aware of Logos satisfaction guarantee of 30 days. I’ve returned resources within that period. I would imagine it would also apply to datasets, features, etc. may want to check back with Logos if unsatisfied.
        3. GREAT advice Gene...
      6. What is the best way to copy and paste the Hebrew text from Logos into MS Word?
        1. If you attempt to add Hebrew and Greek to Microsoft Word, when you add the language, be sure to uncheck the box that says "make default" or when learn the hard way I did. I did not see that box until after I clicked "OK", and when Word was restarted it was all in Hebrew. Had to call my Dell customer support center to have them set it back to "English" as the default, not Hebrew. I then added Greek as well, but this time I unchecked the Make Default box, and all went well.
        2. OR...you could REALLY learn Hebrew! :-)
        3. Thank you
      7. Good morning. I am a former wordsearch user, who was brought into logos due to the aquistion a year or so ago. I am also a former cheif information officer. So, I have a pretty extensive technological background. That stated, I still have been fairly frustrated in trying to get my logos up to speed for daily use, for the things that I now do as a fulltime pastor. By the way, I have also purchased the training library. My schedule as a pastor is extremely busy, like all pastors. Consequently, I don't have hours of free time available. As the rest of you have to do on a weekly basis, I have to prepare sermons, bible studies, and do pastoral care. I am presently assigned to a large church in Danville, Illinois. I am rebuilding our contemporary worship and young adult ministries. And helping us develelop a multicultural strategy. I can do use a couple of the workflows and sermon prep tools. I do use the factbook and sermon starter tools. However, I have an extensive library of around 1900 books. I'd like to be able to do research. The search tools aren't intuitive. At the end of the day, when I look through the library of training, it is overwhelming, and I want to take advantage of these wonderful tools. Often times, the instructor talks super fast, and again, I really want to use these tools, but I have sincerely had a lot of frustration. Please advise.

Maybe you have an idea for how to improve Logos Bible Software, a new resource to suggest they add to their library, or you’ve just come across a snag – most people don’t know that you can make suggestions directly to theteam at Faithlife and Logos Bible Software. A little bonus is that you can see what they’re got on their radar for future improvements. 😉
        2. If there are some particular tasks or searches you’re wanting to do, let me know and I’ll try to be more specific. One thing I would recommend: watch at least one MP Seminars video (either a video from Camp 1 and 2 or the Video Reference Guide) at least once a week. Even though I have a super busy schedule myself (full time PhD student and I work part time), I take a little bit of time out once a week to watch at least one decent size video on the MP Seminars website to keep my training fresh, plus the training is also “bite sized” by spreading it out so I can really work over what I’ve learned in the training video that week.
        3. Agreed. I really enjoy Moe's videos. I try to take notes as much as possible because my memory leaks (apparently).
      8. Hi Mo, NT Prof here who's been to a couple of your Camps. Want to know if there is a way to search the NA28 notes for all references to Psalms in Luke and Acts and can't figure out a way to construct the search. Can you help? Dr. Jim Davis
        1. Could the answer be that NA28 GBS has Cross Reference as a search field, while NA28 does not?
        2. Hi Jim, Morris has been in touch with Logos to track down a solution. Could you submit a ticket to mpseminars.com? Just click Help > Contact Us. I'll share a doc with you there that should get you what you're needing.
        3. -- I'm sending you a direct message with the answer we got from Logos developers.
