What is Tagging?
- Tagging allows you to tag your books so that you can more easily find them.
Very similar to how Logos uses Type (see image below).
- Think of a Tag as a category or grouped resources.
- Tags that you have applied will appear in the My Tag column in your library (when viewing detailed view).
- You will apply a name for a tag (category) that you want to categorize. Below you can see that I have a tag which I name Charts and it shows when using the My Tags sorting.
- To have each of these resources appear in my Charts tag, I had to individually tag each of these resources with the tag Charts. (But there is a way to tag multiple resource at once, Is there a way to Tag multiple books at the same time?)
- You can apply more than one tag to a resource. (notice above some are tagged for Maps & Charts, etc). This is useful when a resource falls under multiple categories that you create.
- Note: be careful when entering a tag name as it is case sensitive.
- To view all of your resources by Tag:
- Open your Library
- Click on the View button in the Library’s menubar until you see column headings (i.e. Title, Author, etc)
- Click on the column My Tags. (if you don’t see My Tags column, please view Available Columns in the detailed view)
- Resources which are not tagged will appear in the top category titled — as shown below.
How do I Tag a book?
- The numbered list below will provide an example on how to Tag some study Bibles under a Tag named Study Bibles.
- Open your Library using the book icon found in the top menu bar. (I suggest opening it in a floating window for better viewing)
- Click on View to get the detailed view.
- Click on Info (the ‘i’ with a circle around it) and ensure the Browse is selected.
- In the Find box enter a filter for better locating the books that you want. (optional)
- Click on a book that you want to Tag. (careful, don’t click on the title or it will open the book)
- In the Browse pane, you will see add tag. Click on it. A box appears. In the box type: Study Bible and press Enter. (to add another tag for this book, you would click again on add tag and enter the other Tag name that you want)
- You have now tagged a book. If the column My Tags is visible, you will see Study Bible next to the book you just tagged. For the above image I have narrowed and hidden the My Tags column (see Available Columns in the detailed view for help showing My Tags column). See image below.
- You should now follow steps 5 & 6 to tag other books which you want tagged as Study Bible. Make sure that you type the Tag name exactly as you typed the first one. (Capitalization and spaces must match, or it will create a different Tag name)
Tagging a book while viewing it
Logos provides a way to change your book’s Tagging while you are viewing your book.
- With your book open, click on the info icon and Logos will show you the info window for your book.
- To add a new Tag click on add tag and in the box that appears type in your tag name that you want to use.
- To clear a tag, click on the tag and delete the text and press Enter.
- Now you can close the info window by clicking on Done. (your tagging will show up in the Library next to your book)
- After changing a tagging on your book this may effect collection(s) in which you use named tags.
- See the illustrated instructions in this post
