In version 7.5 of the desktop software, the legacy version of Grammars guide section has been removed in favor of a newer Grammars section introduced in version 6.3. Owners of the Grammars Cross References Dataset (available via all Logos 7 Feature Sets except for Logos Basic) have been using the new section since that release. Users who do not own this resource can restore the functionality of the missing section by following these steps:

  • Create a new Grammars collection with the rule: type:grammars
  • If owned, manually add the following resources:
    Introduction to New Testament Greek by Charles Goodwin and W. David McBrayer
    New Testament Greek for Beginners by John Gresham Machen
  • Add a new Collection section to your guide template and select the new Grammars collection

In my quest to deepen my knowledge I went to Logos Help and typed in 'Dataset' no response - is this an omission?

It shows up 33 times in my help file. What were you expecting to see?

Something like what you have - but I wasn't expecting to have to put Bible Browser in. Even if I do it doesn't help!

This is true, for me, on both the Beta (Logos and OS) and the Stable (OS and Logos)

Try using the inline search - you are searching on headwords (ToC entries) and dataset isn't one of them

G'day Graham

My point, rather, was that now the term 'Dataset' is becoming so ubiquitous, in the context of Logos software and it use, that Dataset deserves to be a headword; if only to provide a definition.

This is a good point, Mike. In fact, we were discussing this very thing just last week. There are some other improvements we'd like to make to the help manual as well, when we can get it in the work queue.

This information needs to be in Help rather than assuming users will remember which beta release triggered the info.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."
