Hi all, God bless:
For power users L7, and workflow enthusiasts:
Biblenote to be used with Ms Onenote:
Some advantages that I can see:
All searchable (does not slow down L7, by keeping notes separate)
Mind map like notes possible (being searchable also)
Can export to Ms Word (not sure) so that Pbb can be used to do resource.
Looks very interesting, but it does not work on mac.
A believer asked me a question after I posted the above:
"Provided you're familiar with how the program works, I'm having trouble with one main thing (right now) and wondered if you could set me straight.
I have in my Word docs, for instance, a sermon on Psalm 78:1-11. I can copy and paste it into BibleNote. I think it would logically go into Bible Study because I think that's the Notebook for sermons or other notes that are directly on the Bible. (I also have Word docs on things like "A Study on The Nazirite Vow," which I think would go into the Notebook called Comments to the Bible). Provided I'm right so far (and I think this is a judgement call), I would add a tab at the top of the page of the Bible Study Notebook, name it "Psalms" and paste my Sermon doc there. The Title of the page, which would also be copied over to the right, would be called Psalm 78:1-11.
I then created a hyperlink by going to the Bible Notebook and selecting the first few words of the psalm (since it's on 11 verses, I wasn't sure what to select so that's what I picked), then a right click to choose "link." It did create a link and when I click on it, it takes me to the sermon doc that I have in the Bible Study Notebook. So far so good.
But I don't know where the "Notes Analysis" comes in (they give instructions on it but it seems to be an alternate way to link the Bible to your Bible Study notes. I don't think that's the case but I don't understand when you use one and when you use the other). Furthermore, I don't know how I handle another sermon that refers to Psalm 78:1-11 (or even a small number of verses within verses 1-11). Everything is fine as long as I have only one set of notes per Bible passage! But that's not the point of the program. Any help you can give would be appreciated."
I have a program in my old snow leopard laptop to install windows progs. but have not done it for Biblenotes.
If someone has a clue and can help our friend will be much appreciated.
Thanks ahead of time for any guidance.
Peace and grace.

I can't see the video. What is BibleNote? Do you have a link?

Pat Brown here. I was the one who wrote Hamilton with my question, hoping he might be familiar with the program. Unfortunately, He has a MAC and the program doesn't work on it. He was the one who had introduced me to it. You can find more info at http://biblenote.pro/ including the download, video and a manual.
I have done very little with it but it seems to have great possibilities. But I ran into a problem with it as Hamilton reported above. So if y'all get involved with it and see a solution to my problem, please let me know.

I have just downloaded the program and have been playing with it. Notes Analysis takes all of the references in your notes and makes them links automatically. Run that first on All Modified Pages (always use that).
Then, go to the Scripture chapter you want and do the Quick Page Analysis. This will add a link that says "Notes" next to your text. When you click on that, it should show all of your sermon notes for that verse.

Nice to hear from you David:
And the link given in the above page:
Same Pat gave.
Hope this helps.
Thanks Justin for the guidance.
When I get a chance I will install it in my old laptop using parallels to see if it works.
What I think is great about MS Onenote, is that it allows you to do a mind map with links, and you can use that as a visual index.
Best of all is that mind maps in Onenote are searchable.
I read the story of a mind map enthusiast, that used to do mind map (visual index) of the assigned lectures in school, grouping important information under key words in the mind map, and noting the pages that had pertinent info.
To his surprise, the final was an open book type, which allowed him to complete it very fast and accurately.
I thought that the student's experience was valuable.
I would like to see a capability like that in L7, where I could do a mind map, or strategic visual plan and then be able to put links like one does in favorites to be able to access relevant info easily and quickly.
Example strategic map:
Hope this sparks thought to new ideas. If so, please share.
Peace and grace.

Thanks for the info, David. This will help a lot

Justin - Pat Brown again. I'm finally getting back to working on BibleNote. A book I was reading made an interesting observation about 2 Cor 4:7. I copied it and opened Biblenote. I selected "Comments to the Bible" and then selected New Testament. I had no tabs so I added one for 2 Corinthians. I pasted the observation. Then I ran the Notes Analysis as you suggested. A scroll bar activated and then I was told it had been saved but with some errors. The error was that it was in the wrong format. When I first pasted the observation it was in vary large print, which I reduced (from Calibri 22 to Calibri 11). I also opened the text box so it went across the page more. When I think of the word "format" this is the type of thing I think of but I don't know that this was the type of format the error was referring to. The program did add a page to my 2 Corinthians tab called 2 Corinthians 4:7 and the Bible reference in my pasted paragraph is now a hyper link. I have not yet run the Quick Page analysis.
I did add it to the section "Comments to the Bible." I believe I could have added it to the "Bible " section as well as the 'Bible Study" section. I really haven't understood when to use one or the other. (I would appreciate any differences of use that you see). So perhaps I added it to the wrong section. But, again, I don't think that's the problem.
Do you see the mis-step I made? Are these the steps you used to add notes?

Click the "BibleNote" tab at the top of OneNote, and click "Look Up a Verse" instead of creating a new tab. I think that will solve your issue. Format here is about the format of the reference (the wrong notebook) rather than the text. Quick Page Analysis is something you click when you are on a particular chapter of the Bible.
