Logos provides several document types which are powerful tools in using Logos. This wiki page will give you a brief description for each of these types. Also notice in the body of this wiki that the Heading for most types is a link to another wiki page which further describes their use.

Page Contents


A Bibliography is essentially a set of citations that you can append to your study document, thesis, etc.

It is readily created from a number of sources in the Add menu e.g. as you consult or quote from different books add them to a collection from which you can later create the bibliography.


Clippings in Logos are similar to a group of index cards that you would use when researching a topic. In each of these index cards you can copy text from other books in your Logos library and paste them there. Logos will automatically add bibliographic info. You may also add your own notes to each clipping card.

You would probably want to name your Clipping appropriate to your research topic as this will help you locate it on the right side of the Documents menu when you want to open it later.

If you are new to Clippings, please watch Mark Barnes video on Clippings.


Handouts, as the name impies, are a brochure that is generated and printed and then handed out to a person or a group. This tool has many limitations and is no longer being developed, so you should consider Clippings or Sermon documents instead.

Morph Query

A Morph Query is an online graphical query editor that allows powerful searches of Greek and Hebrew resources – some that can’t be accomplished by the text based Morph Search.


Notes are a powerful feature of Logos that embraces annotations, highlighting and labels. A Note document can contain many individual notes from virtually any book in your library, and they can be linked to a specific location in the book. They can also be independent of any book. Within the note you can add links to a book, or hyperlink to a specific place in a book.
Labels allow you to categorise a note and they can be easily searched for.

Passage List

A Passage List is a group of scripture passages and each document allows you to easily add passages from a number of sources. A Passage List can also be created from a Search and from the results of Guides and Tools.
In Passage Lists you can view multiple Bible translations for each of your verses. You can add Headings inside a Passage list to help you remember what each grouping of verses refers to.
Please watch Mark Barnes video on Passage Lists.

Prayer List

A Prayer List is a group of prayers that you want to access and pray for. Please see the wiki page Prayer List for a full description on how to use it.

Reading Plans

This feature allows you to create a plan(s) to read through one or more of your books. Please see the wiki page Reading Plan (Basics) for details on setting up a reading plan.

Sentence Diagram

A Sentence Diagram is a graphical tool that you can use for Arcing or modelling the structure of sentences, or use for other purposes. There is no wiki page for this tool, but you may find this article useful.

Sermon Editor

This document defines a set of document-like artifacts that cluster around a sermon/presentation given during a church service. The main artifact is the text of the sermon but it can be supplemnted with slides, handouts and questions.
There is no wiki page for this tool, but you may find this article useful.

Syntax Search is a powerful graphical tool that allows you to setup search criteria for a syntax in a Bible. It is based on grammatical structures like sentence, clause, and phrase so its results better reflect context than a text Search.

Visual Filter

A Visual Filter allows you to specify Search rules for automatically highlighting text in a specific resource(s). So you can save any text Search as a Visual Filter. Then you can use the resource’s “Visual filters” icon to switch the filter on/off.

Word Find Puzzle

A Word Find Puzzle is a fun tool which allows you to build a Word puzzle relative to a specific scripture range which you select. You can use it inside of Logos or you can print it for use as a handout.

Word List

A Word List is a list of original language words (lemmas) that can be useful in learning the language. They can be printed as Flash Cards. It is readily created from a number of sources in the Add menu, or an existing list could be merged with another.
