What is a Custom Guide?

Logos provides several types of Guides, including the Passage Guide and Exegetical Guide. But you can create a new guide, customize the sections that will be in it, arrange the order in which they are shown, and preserve any settings for subsequent use. Your custom guide is listed in the Guides menu, together with the default guides.

You can create as many custom guides as you like, and they will be used in places like the right-click Context menu.

Logos provides a Guide Editor, which makes it quick and easy to create or change a custom guide.
