 How to Prioritize resources

The right-click Context menu lists a number of resources for various references and words in the text (bible passages, lemmas, Strong’s number) and Passage Guide lists your top Commentaries first. You can prioritize which resources are listed or else you get Logos defaults which may not be what you expected. To do this go to Library and click on Prioritize. Drag a title onto the list or right-click for more options.

Type filter in Library Find bar to see resources in that category (can abbreviate filter e.g. “type:enc title:bib” for Bible Dictionaries)


English Bibles, Dictionaries, and Commentaries Prioritize List

## Category Library Filter
5x English Bibles type:Bible lang:English
5x Bible Dictionaries type:Encyclopedia title:Bible
6x Commentaries (or Series) type:Commentary


English plus Original Language Bibles, Lexicons, Dictionaries, and Commentaries Prioritize List

## Category Library Filter
5x English Bibles type:Bible lang:English
5x Greek Bibles type:Bible lang:Greek
5x Hebrew Bibles type:Bible lang:Hebrew
5x Greek Lexicons type:Lexicon subject:Greek
5x Hebrew/Aramaic Lexicons type:Lexicon subject:(Hebrew, Aramaic)
5x Bible Dictionaries type:Encyclopedia title:Bible
6x Commentaries (or Series) type:Commentary


Note: Five is the maximum number of resources to appear in the Context menu, but you can specify more in case a value is not found in some of your top 5. Do similarly for Passage Guide which initially lists six commentaries.

Note: Bibles and Commentaries are both accessible via bible verse references, so if you prioritize one or two commentaries (or Series) among your top five bible resources they will be listed in the Context menu for a bible reference. For example:

  • ESV (Preferred bible)
  • NET (many translation footnotes)
  • NKJV
  • NIV
  • United Bible Societies’ Handbooks (series of 56 volumes)
  • Bible Knowledge Commentary
  • NRSV

Note: NRSV is included for Apocryphal/Deuterocanonical books that are not in the other bibles. United Bible Societies’ Old Testament Handbook Series lacks several Old Testament books; so above list includes “Bible Knowledge Commentary” for those books.


Optional Resource Prioritization

Category Library Filter
Lectionary type:Lectionary
Devotional type:Calendar
Dictionary type:Dictionary
Thesaurus type:Thesaurus
Apostolic Fathers lang:Greek Apostolic
Septuagint (LXX) type:Bible LXX

Note: Highest priority Lectionary resource is displayed on Home Page ribbon bar

Note: All prioritized Calendar Devotionals appear on your Home Page (in prioritized order) if Home Page Contents includes Devotionals (default is checked).

  • When no Calendar Devotional resources are prioritized, Logos chooses 3 Devotionals
  • When 1 to 3 Calendar Devotional resources are prioritized, Logos adds 2 more Devotionals
  • When 4 to 6 Calendar Devotional resources are prioritized, Logos adds 1 more Devotional
  • When 7 or more Calendar Devotionals are prioritized, Logos adds no more

Note: Highest priority Apostolic Fathers (Greek) and Septuagint appear in Bible Word Study (BWS) Textual Searches for a Greek word study
