Logos 4 PBB is here!

Many of you who check this site, do so for one reason: Logos PBB’s. That’s cool, it’s why I have them here, it’s a ministry to the global church. One of the most hotly anticipated aspects of Logos 4 is PBB. So it’s only fair to celebrate that fact.
Logos 4.3 which is currently downloading or will download to Logos 4 users around the globe has this newly minted Personal Book capability baked in for free.
What this means for you, is that all of those papers you wrote in seminary, your disertatation and yes your hand typed copy of The Treasury of David can now be imported into Logos.
The rules are simple, and this comes right out of the Logos 4 helpfile:

Compile personal or public domain works into Logos 4 resources.

Creating a personal book in Logos 4 is a two-step process. The first step is to compose the document in Word and save it as a .docx file. The second step is to build the resource from that file using the Personal Books tool in Logos 4.
IMPORTANT: The docx source files need to be preserved in order to make any future revisions, following the same two-step process.

I. Compose the source document.

1. Create the Word document(s) that you will use to build your Logos 4 resource. (See Personal Books Syntax if you want to add hyperlinks, milestones, headwords, etc. to your book.)
2. Save the document(s) to your hard drive in Office Open XML Format (.docx).

II. Add the .docx file(s) and build the Personal Book.

1. In Logos 4, click on the Tools menu and choose Personal Books.
