What is the Visual Filter Menu?

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


    • It allows you to control what is visually shown in your resource(s).
    • When you click on the Visual Filter Menu a drop down menu appears:


    • See the section Using the Visual Filter Menu below
    • Contents of this menu may differ depending on the resource and documents or highlighting that you have.




Using the Visual Filter Menu

  • There are 5 sections that are shown in the Visual Filter Menu [top or general, Highlighting, Notes, Reading Plans, Visual Filters].
    Each section is explained below.
  • When an item is checked, it will be active or visible (Link all Open resources, Sympathetic Highlighting are active, others are visible).
    Likewise when it is unchecked it is inactive or not visible.
  • Hint:
    • Right click on an item in the Visual Filter Menu will allow you to turn ON/OFF that item in all resources.
      • Show in all appropriate resources: will turn ON in all resources when clicked.
      • Do not show in any resource: will turn OFF in all resources when clicked.



        a) Click on the Visual Filter Menu item. (e.g. Sympathetic highlighting)
        b) Select either Show in all appropriate resources or Do not show in any resource.
        c) Now that item has been turned ON/OFF in all open resources.



Top section (general controls)

   

  • Bible text only
    • When unchecked your Bible resource is shown normally.



    • When checked your Bible resource is shown without formatting/footnotes/references in a verse-by-verse display.




  • Links to open panels
    • When checked this enables your open Bible(s) which also have this checked to highlight references in other resources which have this checked.
      When unchecked this resource will not show highlighting.



      (in the image above, we have the ESV Bible and the Bible Knowledge Commentary both checked with Link to open panels.
      Notice that the Bible is open to Romans chapter 10 and that Logos highlights this reference in the BKC)


  • Sympathetic highlighting

Highlighting section



Note: this section was removed from the Visual Filter Menu in version 4.5

Logos now has your highlights in individual Note files (named after the Palette by default).
So you will need to check/uncheck the Note file(s) associated with your highlights. (see this section: Notes section)



  • This section will appear if you highlighted in that resource.
    • You may also see your custom highlighting in this section if it was used in this resource.
      (checked items are custom palettes in image)


      [If you have several highlighting styles used, don’t forget to use the scrollbar to see them all]

  • When checked highlighting will be visible in your resource.
    When unchecked highlighting will not be shown.



Notes section

  • This section will appear for resources which have Notes linked to it.


    • Notes which have Reference used as a note type and are indexed by Bible reference. (e.g. Bibles, Commentaries)
    • Notes which are tied to this resource via Selection.

  • The items in this section will have the filename of the note.
  • When checked your notes that are tied to this resource will be visible.
    When unchecked your note markers will not be visible.



    • See the wiki page Notes.


New in version 4.5, your Highlighting is associated with Note files (named after the Palette by default).

To turn On/Off your highlighting in a resource, find the Note file for the associated highlighting.
Notice the 2 highlighting note files which are circled below in the image of the Visual Filter Menu.
  





Reading Plan

  • This section will appear for a resource in which you have added a Reading Plan.


    • It allows you to Show/Hide the message in your resource (as shown below).

    • To open and go to a Reading Plan:
      1. Go to your Home page
      2. In the blue ribbon at the top, scroll to locate your Reading Plan(s) and click on the link next to Today (or the day which you want to read). Logos will open your resource to the area for that day’s reading.

    • For the basics on Reading plans see Reading Plan (Basics)
    • For more info on Custom Reading Plans see Reading Plans


Visual Filters section

  • This section will appear for resources which have Visual Filters (those created with Visual Filters from the File menu) that specify this resource or its type.



  • Items in this section will have the filename that you named your Visual Filters.
  • When checked your Visual Filter highlighting will be visible.
    When unchecked your Visual Filter highlighting will not be shown.
