What is meant by Paged View?

 It is the ability to read your resource in multiple columns as you might see in a paper book. This can make reading easier, especially when you have your book open in a large panel/window or in Reading View.

Reading in a resource panel

In a resource panel, the number of columns will depend on your panel size. When you exit Logos or save your layout Logos will remember that your resource was in this mode.

  1. In the resource that you want to read, click on the resource’s icon to open the panel menu

  2. In the drop down menu click on the number of Columns that you want to show in your resource. If you choose Auto Logos will determine the number of columns.

    Once you have done this the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Shift+P (Mac users: Shift+Cmd+P) can be used as it will remember your preference.

  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 this mode you will need to use the methods below to change pages as you are reading:
    • The arrows in the lower right corner of your resource can be used to change pages
      You can use Page Up & Page Dn keys on your keyboard (Mac users: use fn-Up Arrow & fn-Down Arrow)
      You can use the Up & Down arrows on your keyboard.

  5. To exit paged mode, click on the resource’s icon then
  6. click on None to the right of Columns
    Use the keyboard combination Ctrl+Shift+P (Mac users: Shift+Cmd+P).

Reading View

Reading View is another paged mode but your resource will open full-screen.
Note that you have no control over the number of columns.

  • In the resource that you want to read, click on the resource’s icon to open the panel menu.
  • In the drop down menu click on Show reading view
    Press the keyboard F11 key:

    1. This overlay appears/disappears when you hover with the mouse. But it allows you to navigate in the resource and to switch resources.
    2. The same controls as in paged mode above.
  • To exit Reading view press the ESC or F11 key.

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.
    • In the pop-up menu click Selection on one side and then click Copy on the other.

    • 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.
