Saved Bible Word Study’s

 Logos will save your Bible Word Study each time that you: enter text in Title or Description or a Note area, or change which tool bar(s) appear or change the Settings of a tool bar. These save guides will not appear in File or Guides menus. But you can find them using the Basic Search tool. If you want to keep track of BWS’s that you have added notes too, then you should add a link to the BWS to your Favorites or a Note file. When searching for saved guides, Logos takes a few minutes before the saved guide is available for the Search tool (usually 3 to 5 minutes. So be prepared for this delay when using the Search tool to look for your saved guide. Warning: if your saved BWS originated from a Custom Bible Word Study guide and you delete that custom BWS guide, then your saved BWS will disappear.

Finding saved BWS’s

The example below will show you how to locate a saved BWS guide. The example shows how to use a key word added to the Title of the BWS, but you could just as easily search for any word that you had in the Title, Description or Notes, or the word that you entered in the reference box.


  1. Open the Bible Word Study guide.
  2. In the reference box enter: πιστεύω
    [you can start typing g:pist and Logos will show a drop down of choices, pick πιστεύω]
    • Now we will change the title to force Logos to save the BWS guide
  3. Click on the Title tool bar to expand it.
  4. In the title box type: BWS – πιστεύω -> Believe in Gk
    [For the Greek word you can copy it from the reference box]
  5. Now we need to wait about 3 or 4 minutes for Logos to register this saved guide before we search for it
    • Now we will use the Search tool to locate our saved BWS guide
  6. Open the Search tool next to the BWS guide in your layout.
  7. In the Search tool apply these settings: Basic, All text, and Entire Library.
  8. In the Find box type: bws and then press Enter.
    [this is a key word that we entered in the title of the BWS guide]
  9. Now in the Search results click on the My Content bar to expand it. Notice that search found the saved BWS guide. (if you don’t see it, you probably didn’t wait long enough for Logos to find it)



Keeping track of saved BWS’s

You can use Favorites to keep track of your saved BWS guides. This example will show you one way to do this. You may choose to keep links to saved BWS guides in other folders in Favorites (e.g. Sermons, Studies, etc).


  1. Open Favorites from Tools in the main menu.
  2. Create a Folder to store links to your saved BWS guide in.
  3. Open your saved BWS guide and place it next to the Favorites tool window.

    [right click on the new favorite and in the pop-up menu click on Rename, then type the new name]
  6. Repeat steps 3 through 5 for other saved BWS guides that you want to add to your Favorites.



Hyperlinking

  1. Click on the BWS’s icon to open the menu.
  2. In the drop down menu click on URL. Logos creates a link to your BWS guide and stores it in the clipboard.

  4. Enter your text in the body of a note. Then use your mouse to select the text that you want to be your link text.
  5. Right click in the Hyperlink box.
    1. In the pop-up menu click on Paste.



    2. Now you will see your link text turn blue, Logos has created your link to the BWS guide.



Adding a Hyperlink, Bold, etc inside a BWS guide note

You can add: Bullets, Bold, Hyperlinks and anything that you would add in a note using the Note’s editing tools.

  • Create a temporary note in a note file

  

  1. Open a Note file (you can create a new one or use a note file that you already have).
    [In the top menu click on File, in the drop down menu (for new note file) on the right click on Notes or (for an existing note file) on the left find your note file and click on it.]
  2. In your note file, click on Add note.
  3. This creates a note within the note file which we will use temporarily.
    1. In the body of the temporary note, type what you want to appear in the BWS guide’s note.
    2. Add hyperlink(s) to the part(s) of text you entered in step 3a.
    3. Add any other editing enhancement that you want to the note text.

      • Now we will copy the text to the clipboard.



  4. Use your mouse to select the entire text.
    1. Right click on the selected text.
    2. In the pop-up menu click on Copy.

      • Now we will add the text to the BWS guide’s note



  5. In the BWS guide...
    1. Click on Note to add a note to the area in the BWS guide that you want to add a note to.
    2. Right click in the note box, in the pop-up menu click on Paste (note shown in the image). Logos pastes the copied note text that we put in the clipboard in step 4b.
    3. Notice in the note in the BWS guide that our hyperlink(s) and bold appears in our BWS guide’s note.
      If you hold the Ctrl key down and click on the hyperlink, Logos will open your link. (Mac users: use the Cmd key)
  6. When you are done adding custom text to your BWS guide’s notes, delete the temporary note in your note file.
    [Hold over the note title, click on the red x to the right of the title to delete that note.]
