The Logos version of the Catechism is the most powerful and user-friendly edition of the Catechism ever made. Just by opening the Catechism and rolling over some of the citations, the benefits of Logos are clear. However, in order to get the most out of the software, you should set up a solid Catechism layout and learn techniques for using the various Logos tools. Watch the video below for some suggestions.
Would I be right in thinking that the Catholic Practicum when it comes out will be a whole series of videos like this one? If so, it may well be worth every penny.
This is a great tutorial, but is there any way to get this in print?
Are you asking for a transcript of the video? Unfortunately, we do not have one. Sorry.
This is a big help. I can hardly wait for the Catholic Practicum!
Yes! Let me know when the Practicum is ready!
[…] There’s a little tutorial here so you can get a sense of how it works. […]
Andrew, that was a most useful tutorial video, thank you! The power of Logos still blows my mind but with this latest tutorial it took my understanding of Logos and its capabilities up a couple of degrees.
Nice job Andrew. Already using Catechism along with my other new Catolic resources to great benefit. Keep up the good work and keep the tutorials coming.
First of all, many thanks, Andrew! In two training posts you have probably taught me more than Mo has done in almost two years of Monday blogs.
Secondly, I would probably use mytags rather than collections. Much faster to set up, works just as well in Cited By, and doesn’t slow the program down anywhere near as much. If these are all the collections you have it’s no problem, but for those of us who already have 1-200 collections it’s NOT a good idea to start adding unnecessary ones. Especially the search dropdowns become slow as molasses.
Also, if you want to add things to Cited By that are already series (like the ECF or the Encyclicals) it’s not necessary to use either collections or mytags. Series show up in the list automatically anyway.
Thanks for the tutorial Andrew. It is very helpful.
Wow! These are fantastic tips and I’ve applied them to my current sets of study layouts. Thanks a million!
The tool has so much to offer! I’ve had it less then a week, and this video really unlocked the power of the tool for me. Keep up the good work!
