How to Display Footnotes in Journal Articles in Logos

image for a blog about what's new in logos 9

A fellow Logos user recently contacted me with a straightforward question:

Is it possible to display journal article footnotes at the bottom of the page?

The answer is yes! Although there is a small caveat I’ll mention below:

  • Open any journal article containing footnotes (A)
  • Choose the resource’s panel menu (B)
  • Select Show footnotes on page (C)

style=”border: 2px solid #eaeaea;”

Now here’s the caveat to be aware of, or the footnotes will not display: on the resource’s panel menu, the Columns option must NOT be set to None (D)

style=”border: 2px solid #eaeaea;”

  • Select any number for the Columns option (E)

style=”border: 2px solid #eaeaea;”

  • Notice the footnotes now display at the bottom of the journal article (F)

I realize this is a not-so-intuitive option that can be frustrating, but please file away this “trick” for when you need it.

Speaking of journal articles, please register and join me for a FREE 50-minute training webinar dealing exclusively with how to get the most out of journals. I’ll show you numerous ways to search journals so you can find just the article you need for your biblical research!
