Hide the Hash Marks in the Scrolling Area

A fellow Logos user recently sent me this inquiry:

As I’m navigating through resources, I notice hash marks in the scroll bar area. What are they? Can I hide them?

Officially, they’re called Auto Bookmarks and, yes, they may be hidden.

Think of the Auto Bookmarks as the “dog ears” we make on pages in print editions. We “dog ear” a page so we can easily return to it. Logos automatically “dog ears” locations for us in our resources. These “dog ears” or Auto Bookmarks are basically the recent history in a resource.

For example:

  • Open your Preferred Bible
  • Notice the hash marks in the scroll bar area (A)


  • Rest the cursor on a hash mark to preview a previous location you’ve visited in the Bible (B)


  • Click the hash mark to jump to the location (C)


To hide Auto Bookmarks:

  • Choose Tools | Program Settings (D)
  • Set Show Auto and Favorite Bookmarks in the General section to No (E)


Please note, selecting No does not erase the Auto Bookmarks, but merely hides them. (F) In the future, if you select Yes, all of the previous Auto Bookmarks will return.
