I updated to 6.4 SR-1 while running Windows 8.1, but the new "Systematic Theologies" features says "no resources" even though I own Logos Gold and have several systematics.

Anyone else experiencing this? Know a solution?

Do you subscribe to Logos Now - as I believe this is a "Now" only function - at least until version 7 hits the streets!

Ahh . . . that must be it. I just check the Logos Now feature page and it states that the Systematic Theology Cross References are exclusive to Logos Now.

I don't have it. Thanks for clarifying.

Nathan, are  you saying that you have a guide section for "Systematic Theologies" but do not have Logos Now? Can you post a screenshot? I'm confused about what is "saying" no resources.

Thanks.

Nathan, did you add the "Systematic Theologies" section to your own Passage guide (or custom guide)?

Internally, there is a difference between guide sections that are available for an installation and all the guide sections that exist. There is apparently a bug that, in certain circumstances, will allow the addition of an existing guide section even if it isn't available for a specific licensed user, and this looks like what happened to you. That bug is known and (from what I've been told) should have a fix implemented in 6.5.

Don't wait for Logos Now. I've been doing this for years as a custom collection in my passage guide. All you need to do is make a Systematic Theology collection and then add that collection to your custom passage guide.

You can absolutely do that. As a matter of fact, we've made that easier for you! I've shared a collection of all the resources here. There are, however, a couple of advantages to the Systematic Theologies Section. The search results are organized for you according to the traditional systematic theological categories and those are further sorted according to denominational affiliation.

Here is my screenshot. I had the free trial of Logos NOW in April, but didn't renew. I wasn't aware at the time of the "Systematic Theologies" feature since I use custom guides. This feature is currently showing up in a default passage guide, but not as a custom guide option.

Thanks for the feedback. I've been using my own Systematic Theology collection in a custom for some time now and just recently discovered that Logos had a "Systematic Theologies" integrated into the guides. It was the organization according to themes which excited me, so I was disappointed to find that I had a section for it that is not populating. It must be a Logos NOW only feature.

Thanks, Nathan, this is helpful.

Did you also have the free trial of Logos Cloud (which, I believe, just expired)? Or just Logos Now?

I have Systematic Theologies in my default Passage Guide.  It does not populate.  I have not signed up for Logos Now or Logos Cloud.  I have Logos 6 Bronze and Reformed Bronze, updated.

the update notes describe this as a new feature to logos 6.4 but it doesn't appear to be working on my end either. There will probably be an update to fix this.

It's a new feature in the "Logos Now" section: https://wiki.logos.com/Logos_6.4_SR-2#Logos_Now; if you don't have a Logos Now subscription, it won't work. (There may be a minor bug that causes the section to appear in some circumstances, but it will always be empty.)

The new features in 6.4 for all users are in the next section in the release notes: https://wiki.logos.com/Logos_6.4_SR-2#All_Logos_6_Users
