One of my favorite Logos 7 features is the Concordance which allows us to conduct a word count, develop a lemma list, and much more. As I’m sure you’ve discovered, a few minutes are necessary the first time we create a Concordance report for an interlinear Bible. And since only a select number of resources are saved in the tool’s history, we may have to spend another few minutes building the report for the same resource in the future.
With the recent release of Logos 7.10, however, that scenario disappeared. We can now save Concordance resources in the panel’s history!
Allow me to show you how it works:
- Choose Tools | Concordance
- Select ESV from the resources drop down list to build a report for that Bible (remember to be patient because it takes a few minutes the first time with an interlinear Bible) (A)
- Click the Panel History arrow in the upper right of the Concordance panel (B)
- Rest the cursor on the ESV in the history list (C)
- Click the Keep this concordance icon (push pin) which appears to the left of the ESV (D)
- Notice the ESV jumps above the light gray horizontal line which represents the area where Concordance resources are saved and will not drop off even after the history is “full” (E)
To reload a saved Concordance resource from the history list:
- Click the Panel History arrow in the upper right of the Concordance panel (F)
- Select a resource in the list (G)
- Notice the Concordance tool “instantly” rebuilds the report for the resource (H)
To remove a resource from the saved list:
- Click the Panel History arrow in the upper right of the Concordance panel (I)
- Rest the cursor on a resource in the history list (J)
- Click the Keep this concordance icon (push pin) (K)
- Notice the resource returns to below the light gray horizontal line which represents the area where Concordance resources are “temporarily” saved (L)
