Logos 4 Release Notes
Implemented syntax for Sermons and Illustrations. When this syntax is added, the compiler will automatically generate indices at the end of the book by date, passage, speaker, tags, topic, and venue.
For sample documents, see
The compiler will also automatically generate headwords for the topics, which will be used by the Topics section (for Sermons) and Illustrations section (for Illustrations) of the Passage Guide.
Fields are added via a table format, where the top-left cell contains ‘Sermon File Type’.
Passages, topics, tags, dates, speakers, and venues specified in the metadata are preserved in the compiled document and restyled. Any other information will not be preserved.
Topics, tags, speakers, and venues in the restyled metadata will act as hyperlinks to the index at the end of the book.
Tags are searchable using the ‘My Tag’ search field.
Dates are searchable as well.
The metadata should be added after the title of the relevant sermon or illustration.
Except for the ‘Sermon File Type’ which is required for the first row, the other metadata lines can be added as desired in any order.
The field types are:
Sermon File Type: ‘Sermon’ or ‘Illustration’ (
the compiler will only recognize one type, the type in the first table, per book.)
Passages: Standard Bible reference formats. Accepts multiple values separated by a semicolon.
Topics: Accepts multiple values separated by a semicolon.
Tags: Accepts multiple values separated by a semicolon.
Date: Accepts multiple values separated by a semicolon. (The compiler will attempt to parse the date.)
Speakers: Accepts multiple values separated by a semicolon.
Venues: Accepts multiple values separated by a semicolon.
