Customizing the Passage and Exegetical Guides

Updated for Logos 6+

Page Contents

The Passage Guide and Exegetical Guide can both be easily customised.
If you name the guides “My Passage Guide” or “My Exegetical Guide” then they will become the preferred guides triggered by the program from places such as the GO Box. This also applies to other guides as well – you can try “My Sermon Starter Guide” or “My Topic Guide”.

Using the Guide Editor

Customising any guide follows the same basic procedure:

  • Open the Guides menu

    • Select Make a new guide template
      The Guide Editor will open in a new tab


  • Select the sections for your guide

    1. For Passage Guide or Exegetical Guide, ensure that “Bible Reference” is selected*.

    3. Click or drag the desired sections to the right


  • Edit the sections

    1. Remove unwanted sections by clicking on the to the right of the header.
    2. Rearrange sections by clicking and dragging

    3. Some sections allow you to further customize them. Make selections to suit the purpose of your guide.
    4. Note that some sections on the right are still available for selection e.g. Commentaries, meaning it can be added multiple times.
      Customize this with a different collection and/or number of commentaries to show.
