What is Paged View?

 Paged View shows your resource in multiple columns as you might see in a paper book. This feature can make reading easier, especially when you have your book open in a large panel/window. The number of columns depends on your panel size (when using Auto) but Logos also allows you to fix the number of columns. Setting Columns to None removes the Paged View mode and the vertical scrollbar will appear again in your resource. Logos will remember when you have a resource set in this mode when you save a layout or when opening Logos after closing it (on the layout screen).

How to set a resource to Paged View

  1. In the resource that you want to view in the Paged View mode, click on it’s icon to open the resource’s menu.
  2. In the drop down menu click on the number of Columns that you want to show in your resource. Also notice that you could have used the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Shift+P (Mac users: Shift+Cmd+P).

  3. Notice that Logos has changed the number of columns in your resource. If you do not see more than one column, enlarge the panel for that resource (e.g. make it a floating window).
  4. Also notice that the vertical scroll bar is missing. In the Paged View you will need to use the methods below to change pages as you are reading:
    1. Notice the arrows in the lower right corner of your resource. These are for changing pages.
    2. Or you can use Page Up & Page Dn keys on your keyboard. (Mac users: use fn-Up Arrow & fn-Down Arrow)
    3. Or you can use the Up & Down arrows on your keyboard.

  5. To exit the Paged View mode, click on the resource’s icon.
  6. Then click on None to the right of Columns.
    1. Or to skip 5 & 6, on your keyboard press the key combination Ctrl+Shift+P (Mac users: Shift+Cmd+P).

Tip: selecting text across page boundaries

 If some text you want to highlight happens to span across a “page” break in paged view, you can’t drag and scroll. But you can drag out the selection to the end of the page, then hit PageDown and then Shift+Click where you want the selection to end, and it retains what was selected at the end of the previous page as part of the selection.

  1. Use your mouse to select your text on the first visible page. Make sure to select to end of the page.
  2. Change to the next page by clicking on the right arrow.

  3. Now locate the end of the text that you want to be selected and hold the shift key down and click there. Logos shows the text on this page as selected. But Logos also remembers the text on the prior page that you selected.

  4. Now you can copy the selected text to your clipboard. Right click on the selected text.
    1. In the pop-up menu click on Selection on the right and then click on Copy on the left.

    2. Now you can paste your selected text into another document (e.g. Microsoft Word). Notice that all of the text that you selected across both pages of your resource was pasted into your document.
