Add Cross References from a Bible to a Passage List

In response to last week’s blog a fellow Logos user asked the following question:

Thanks for the helpful tip, but I have a slightly different scenario. How do I add imbedded cross references in a Bible to a Passage List since the references themselves don’t appear, but only superscript letters?

This is a great observation and excellent question! To assist us, we’re going to add Power Lookup to the Passage List.

Here’s what I mean:

  • Choose Documents | Passage List
  • Name the document anything you like (A)

  • Open a Bible, containing imbedded cross references identified with superscript letters, (B) to any passage (C)

  • Choose Tools | Power Lookup
  • Select, in the Bible, text containing imbedded cross references (D)
  • Notice Power Lookup displays the text of those cross references (E)
  • Click Copy on the Power Lookup panel (F)

  • Click the Add link on the Passage List (G)
  • Select …clipboard from the drop down list (H)

  • Notice the verses from Power Lookup which are cross references from the Bible are added to the Passage List! (I)

For more tips regarding Power Lookup be sure to check out the Logos 7 Training Manuals Volumes 1-3 in print or digital.
