Logos Notes files consolidation aid / utility
I have a Logos 7 license, with several Notes files. Among these the largest are in 2 versions: "General Notes" and "General Notes (4)". These 2 are very large (having been a user for many years now) and very close in content. [Probably the "(4)" was created because of phone (i.e., Android Bible app) usage on my part.]
I would like to suggest/request, as an interim solution, a new utility option in Logos that could compare any 2 NOTES files (for now, comparing 2 files is better than none). The 2 files to compare could be chosen by a checklist. The output of the utility would list the differences between the files -- that is, what individual notes are different between them. This 'differences file' could then be printed or exported as an informal guide to the user as to what notes to manually (for now) move (if he wants to do so) from 1 file to the other. These "moves" would be done by the user manually creating a new note in the desired Note file, and then he would copy & paste from one source to the other. All this would be the user's responsibility -- at least for now).
This is better than having no option (as it is now) other than that of retaining the 2 very large notes files, which of course slows the computer, can add confusion -- etc.
Another even better option to consider (longer term?) is just as Amazon has done fairly recently for Kindle notes. The Kindle syncing process allows user notes made on any device to be uniformly displayed on all devices, and this is true even for their user-created content (such as PDFs, Word files converted for Kindle display, etc.). They are (I believe) a company worth studying and hooking up with (at one time Logos documents could be moved to Kindle, not sure about that now -- but that's another issue.)
THanks for considering the needs of the user communities, many of us "aging". If we can use the software easily, it will more naturally be adopted by our grandkids and the like, if/when we no longer have time to use it heavily as we do now. Also, many clergy (as well as lay folks) depend on your utilities to help prepare their sermons, notes and lessons -- hoping that can robustly continue in the future. "Freely you have received -- freely give." That is my aim, and I hope yours also, when it comes to making the software easier to use productively.
