What is the Visual Filter Menu?

  • The Visual Filter Menu is found on the toolbar of most resources.



    • It allows you to control what is visually shown in a resource.
    • The contents of this menu may differ depending on the resource, the dataset features and the documents that you have.
  • This is not to be confused with Visual Filters which are created from the Documents menu.



Using the Visual Filters Menu

  • The filters that are shown in the Visual Filter menu are Resource or Top group, Community Notes, Corresponding Notes and Highlights, Media, Notes and Highlights, Passage Lists, Reading Plans, and Visual Filters.
  • When a group or filter header is checked, it will activate subordinate items that are also checked.
    When it is unchecked it will render subordinate items inactive, without changing their state.
  • When a subordinate item is checked it can be activated and when it is unchecked it cannot be activated.
  • Hint: Right click a menu item to turn ON/OFF that item in all resources.
    • Show in all appropriate resources will turn it ON in all resources.
    • Do not show in any resources: will turn it OFF in all resources.



      a) Click on the Visual Filter menu item. e.g. Corresponding selection
      b) Select either Show in all appropriate resources or Do not show in any resources.

Corresponding words

  • When Checked Logos will automatically highlight words that correspond to the one you have clicked/hovered over.
  • Sub-menu items shown will depend on the resource but include:

    • “Same word” = same Greek/Hebrew manuscript word in the same location (e.g. verse) across multiple resources
    • “Same lemma” = same Greek/Hebrew lemma in one or more resources
    • “Same root” = same Greek/Hebrew root in one or more resources
  • Here is an example using a Hebrew bible and a Reverse Interlinear (RI):

    • The Hebrew bible (LHB) has “Same word” checked
    • The Reverse Interlinear (ESV) has “Same word” and “Same lemma” checked

      2. This is the “Same word” in the ESV
        • “own” is not aligned with the Hebrew word
        • “in the image of” comes from the adjacent Hebrew word
      3. This is the “Same lemma” in the ESV
        • it highlights the words aligned with Hebrew “image”
