Print Friendly and PDF

With Logos, you have a wealth of information right at your fingertips. This article offers some tips on how to navigate within your resources in order to find what you’re looking for.

Skip ahead to:


The Resource Toolbar

The Resource toolbar displays at the top of any open resource panel and offers quick access to commonly used Logos features.

  • The navigation menu button  opens the sidebar with tabs for the resource’s table of contents and for your notes and highlights.
  • The location box displays your current location within the open resource.
  • The inline search button  enables you to perform a Basic, Bible, or Morph search within the resource(s) you have open in the active panel.
  • The visual filters button  allows you to choose which visual filters are displayed in the current resource.
  • The interlinear button  toggles the inline interlinear and/or the interlinear ribbon on and off. Click the dropdown arrow beside the interlinear icon to select what interlinear information is displayed.
  • The multiple resources button  allows you to open two or more resources in parallel within the same panel.
  • The parallel resource sets button  allows you to choose which sets of parallel resources will be accessible when using the left and right arrow buttons or keys.
  • The navigation arrows  move backward and forward through the panel’s history.
  • The panel history button  displays the resources and pages that have been opened within the current panel.
  • The panel menu button  opens the resource panel menu, which contains many options for working with the current resource.


The Locator Bar

The Locator bar is available in each of your resources and can be found near the top of each panel.

The Locator bar contains the following tools:

The Contents location section shows your current location relative to the table of contents. Each of the items in the location is a link you can use to navigate backward within the resource quickly.

The Navigation choice section shows how the navigation arrows  will move the displayed text (you can also press Alt+up/down (Windows) or Shift+Cmd+up/down (Mac) to navigate using your keyboard). Clicking the navigation selection allows you to choose between Article, Book, Chapter, and Verse

  • Article navigates by pericope in a Bible, heading in commentary, or next entry in a dictionary.
  • Note: The following three options only work with books that use Bible indexing.
  • Book moves between books in the Bible.
  • Chapter navigates from one chapter to another.
  • Verse moves from one verse to another.

The Close button  closes the Locator bar. The locator bar can be reopened by accessing the Resource Panel menu.


Click the navigation menu icon  to open the navigation sidebar. The navigation sidebar allows you to navigate using the table of contents for the resource, as well as filter the resource by notes you've taken.

Table of contents

Click the table of contents icon  to display the table of contents for the resource. Click the title of a book, chapter, or section to display it in the main resource panel.

Filter by notes

Click the notes icon in the navigation menu to display a faceted list of note filters. Select one or more filters from the menu, and the resource will panel will display only the text associated with the notes that meet the filter criteria you've selected.
