I am working on a paper, so I purchased Revelation: Four Views, A Parallel Commentary.  There are two major problems with this resource.  The first is that it has no page numbers.  Why would it not have page numbers?  I have the paper copy and it has page numbers.  If this was a Vyrso book I would understand.  The book costs $28.99 through Logos, and the 2013 edition is out now in paperback for $19.99, so customers are certainly paying for the value add which accompanies Logos resources, and one would assume that page numbers would be included.

The second issue is a misplaced quote that is described in this thread from 2010.  This is certainly something that should have been fixed in the last six years, but it has not.

We pay a premium for Logos resources, and I am happy to do that, as I have spent a fortune on Logos resources, but if those resources fail to offer the benefits for which we are paying, then the value add argument really takes a hit.

Just so its on the record, can you also confirm that you have checked the visual filter to show the page numbers? You seem like a seasoned user, so I expect you did.

Correct, there is no option for this resource under visual filters for viewing page numbers.

Joseph,

it looks like this is one of the older Thomas Nelson titles that are waiting to be updated. the file still has the Libronix file extension, and is dated 08-08-2002 so it is 14 years old now. There are quite a number of these left in the system.

Is this an issue that comes up in the footnotes when you cut and paste?  The only time that I worry about page numbers is for footnotes and the automatic footnoting when you cut and paste out of Logos always quotes the page number in my experience.

Yes, when I copy a section and paste it is supplies the following footnote:

I had to find what I was looking for in my paper copy to supply the page number.

I am wondering if the new edition is in the work or at least in the pipeline. Thanks.

And curious whether the issues ever got fixed. I have this on my wishlist but am holding off.

From the current version in Logos: 

  p 277   Spiritual

The preferred reading of the opening words of this chapter is, “And he stood,” meaning the dragon, who calls forth assistance from land and sea in the form of two monstrous beasts. This first beast, arising out of the sea (v. 1), is intended to represent “an incarnation of politicosocial evil” (Morey), or any governmental system at any time that opposes the kingdom of God[1]

The resource file has a build date of 2018-12-08.  In addition to having page numbers, the misplaced quote has been corrected (though it still isn't formatted as a quote).
