I have the New American Commentary in both Logos and WordSearch formats. I was wondering what I would have to do to get the ELM to link to them.

Hi Kevin,

Your signature indicate you are using BW 6. If that is still true, you will need to start by upgrading to 7.0.

If you have 7.0, there are several posts already discussing how to link into Logos, but if you cannot find them, post back and I will be glad to assist you.

I do not know how to link into WS.

Well, I need to upgrade my sig just like upgraded my software. :o

I read the only other thread and it did not discuss how to link to a specific target in Logos. It talked about linking to some of the language stuff. But I use BW for language and Logos/WordSearch for commentaries. How do I link to something other than what was discussed. I know I need to read through the help stuff. But thought I'd take a stab here first.

This message (http://www.bibleworks.com/forums/showpost.php?p=6740&postcount=97) did a good job of summarizing ways to link BW7 and Logos. So you can go straight to that one rather than reading all of them if you prefer.

Thanks.
That is quite complete, it seems. I only skimmed it so I will have to do a careful reading to see if I can follow it.

The following should work - at least it does for me:

// External Link #20
//
[Logos BDAG]
Operation = Open
Directory = NULL
File = libronixdls:macro|name=TextKeyLink|text=<dummy>|lang=el|scheme=beta|res=LLS:BDAG
Parameters = NULL
MenuLocation = Browse Window Greek
TextType = Greek Text
MapToVersion = NULL
Lookup = Lemma
MenuText = Look up work in BDAG
Enabled = 1

Note that you want to have the menu location as Browse Window Greek so that it only appears as an option when the pointer is over greek text. You also want the lookup to only be the Lemma (not the Form) as you are searching for the dictionary entry. Map to version is not necessary as you are searching for a dictionary entry and not for a biblical text (or critical apparatus reference).

As for the macro: I worked on these external links so long ago, I can't remember what does what..... BUT n.b. a space will occur in this very long line that needs to be deleted (at the moment I think it's in lang=el.

God Bless,
Damian

I cannot figure out how to edit the external links to include BDAG in Logos. Can someone walk me through this step by step please?:) Thank you very much!

Has anyone figured out how to create a link that will open the current passage and run a Passage Guide report in Logos 3?

It's not possible to run the passage guide. Do you need help getting it to open to the current verse?

No but opening to a commentary might be a good alternative choice. I have the New American Commentary and would love to have it open wiht the right lick option.

You can also search for a reference in a collection, etc.
libronixdls:dialog|name=SearchBasic|search=bible in "<Book> <Chapter>:<Verse>"|collection-name=(collection name, with no space, parenthesis, brackets, or anything.)

(Go to tools - Define Collections within Libronix. You can create a Collection which is a combination of any "books" you have in Libronix and the give it a name. For this feature to work w/ BW don't put any spaces or other odd characters in the name of your Libronix collection, e.g Journals, Grammars, CommentarySeries)

When I created my setup some time ago, I had to create a collection "NewAmericanCommentary." And then, using the above command, configured a reference link in BW7. The other way I've found to be helpful is to setup a Logos workspace with a Bible text, a commentary, and a passage guide window all linked. Then a reference call to active Bible causes the other windows to jump to the same reference. (I'm not in front of my computer at the moment, so this is just by memory.)

I don't know if I've ever posted this, I have a couple of javascript programs which I use to open workplaces in Logos. Thus, you could set up an NAC workplace and open it from within BW7. The script will check whether Logos is running and if not open it. You can then use the "send verse" feature described here elsewhere.

I have saved the following as NTcommentaries.js in the directory ...\program files\Bible Works\jscript. Note the bolded part which is all that needs to be changed to open any workspace.

var objFO = new ActiveXObject("Utility.LbxFileOperations");
var myDocs = objFO.GetSpecialFolder("Mydocuments");

//See if Libronix is already running

var objLDLS = null;
try
{
objLDLS = GetObject("", "LibronixDLS.LbxApplication");
}
catch (e)
{
}

//Start Libronix if necessary

if (objLDLS == null)
{
objLDLS = new ActiveXObject("LibronixDLS.LbxApplication");
}

LDLSApp = GetObject("","LibronixDLS.LbxApplication");
var objXMLDOM = new ActiveXObject("MSXML2.DOMDocument.4.0");
objXMLDOM.load(myDocs + "\\libronix DLS\\Workspaces\\NT Commentaries.lbxwks");
objLDLS.LoadWorkspace(objXMLDOM,"");
objLDLS.Visible = true;

It is then necessary to set up an external link. for this, under Web page, File to open, or executable to run, I have:
jscript/ntcommentaries.js

I actual have mine setup as External Resources under Menu Location or Event, but you could have this option pop up in your context menu from anywhere.

Hope this helps.
