Logos Bible App Links

I would love to be able to use Hookmark to hook references from the Bible app Logos. It appears the Logos app has the ability to generate a link that will reference a specific verse. Hookmark does not appear able to Hook to Copied Link with the link generated.

Here is an example link:

Any ideas on how to get this to work with the current version of Hookmark? Thanks!

Sorry it is currently not supported. We will take a look.

What are you trying to do? If you copy the HTML link from Logos and then go to whatever you want to Hook to… invoke Hook and “Hook to copied link.”

Let me know if I can help.

Hey @arthurwerry, from my understanding, the L4 link that I gave an example of in my original post, is the link that will open directly in the Logos desktop app. All other links seem to open in a browser which is what I am trying to avoid. Thanks for your time.

Yes, that is annoying. Chrome will sometimes give a checkbox “always open with…” when the dialog pops up so it will more seemlessly open Logos itself, but I can’t get Chrome to give that option.

I’m not a scripting person, but I am sure someone with scripting knowledge could knock out something fairly quickly in Hookmark’s scripting to handle the L4 link that is very consistently generated by Logos.

Welcome to the Hookmark Forum , @tylermcrae7. In my quick look at this I couldn’t see AppleScript in Logos. If they had some API in principle we could create a new hook:// URL scheme for those links. Also if it were exposed in a menubar > menu > menu item; or even just a reliable keyboard shortcut.

Hello Luc, I have sent an email to the company, but have not heard anything back from them. There is a reliable keyboard shortcut which is Opt + Cmd + C. There are 5 different options you can set within the Logos app that will copy a different link with that specific keyboard shortcut. Once the option is set, I don’t believe it changes. I don’t know if that is of use to you or not, but here is the documentation that speaks to those five options.

thanks for this and the other info.

If you were to copy the above text from this post, how would you feed it into Logos to get to the destination? Their instructions seem to say they need to be fed into a web browser…

I don’t see a way to construct a link that Logos could use. (but I don’t have additional relevant knowledge of that app).

Not a problem!

From what I’ve seen, I can use an “Open URL” action in the Shortcuts app that will open straight to the location, which in this scenario, is Ephesians 6:14 of the ESV Bible within the Logos desktop app. I have also used it in an Obsidian note in what I believe is standard markdown linking which will open to the correct location.

I was hoping to be able to use Hookmark to “Hook to Copied Link” so I could attach the references to any number of items and click the link from there. :slight_smile:
