Attach Same Note to Different Verses

As you well know, the same biblical event is perhaps mentioned in multiple places in the Bible. For example, Jesus’ prayer in Gethsemane is recorded in Mathew, Mark, and Luke. Let’s imagine we’re working our way through Mark when we come to the phrase this cup in 14:36. We want to record our insights so we create a Note for Mark 14:36. During our research, however, we discover this same phrase also appears in Matthew 26:39 and Luke 22:42. Rather than creating two more separate Notes, we can actually attach the same original Note to the other two verses with a feature known as an Attachment Point.

Here’s how to get started with this power user trick:

First, create the original Note:

  • Choose Documents | Notes
  • Name the file something like Notes on the Gospels (A)
  • Make sure the view is set to Full (B)

1M

  • Open a Bible to Mark 14:36
  • Right click on any word in Mark 14:36 (C)
  • Select from the Context menu Mark 14:36 (D)
  • Select Add a Note to “Notes on the Gospels” (E)

2M

  • Notice Logos creates, in the file, an individual Note named Mark 14:36 (F) with a Content box underneath it (G)

3M

  • Type your research in the Content box, for example, The demonstrative pronoun “this” implies nearness or being close at hand (H)

4M

  • Notice Logos places a Note indicator in the Bible next to Mark 14:36 (I)

5M

  • Rest the cursor on the indicator to see a pop-up preview of the Note Content (J)

6M

Next, add the attachment points:

  • Rest the cursor on the name of the Note, Mark 14:36 (K)

7M

  • Click the arrow link that appears to the far right of the Note (L)
  • Select Edit attachment points (M)

8M

  • Type Matthew 26:39 in the Reference box (N)
  • Select the biblical reference from the drop down list (O)

9M

  • Type Luke 22:42 in the Reference box (P)
  • Select the biblical reference from the drop down list (Q)

10M

  • Click Done to close the Attachment points box (R)

11M

  • Navigate to Matthew 26:39 and Luke 22:42 in the Bible and notice a Note indicator next to each verse (S)

12M

Now regardless of which account of Jesus’ prayer you’re reading, you’ll have your insights about this cup right there with you!

  1. Excellent tip! Have wanted to make multiple notes like this for a long time, so had designed my own cross referencing system. But yours is miles ahead of it.

  2. Great tip. On top of that you can easily add “attach to current selection” which further expands the possibilities to collect info from which ever library source you have in one note.

  3. Thanks a lot. This solves a problem I have had for some time and reduces the number of notes I have to make.
