they are custom reading plans, setup to use ESV, but when I click on the reading card it takes me to JPS I think.

If you reset your Bible Reading Plan layout, does it start working correctly? If you have customized that layout, then it will use the Bible you specified in the layout, rather than the Bible in the reading plan.

That fixed this issue Andrew, thank you for chiming in with the solution. This was never an issue with Logos 7 for me.Does that mean I am forced to stick with the default reading plan layout  for Logos 8 ?

Next issue is a card on the home page I don't want, that I can't get rid of because there is no menu to remove it.  What am I missing ?

Interesting ... I'd object to that since I might be using Logos in a class setting and would not want to advertise PMI

I believe this is due to following the Precept Ministries group https://faithlife.com/precept-ministries-international/ on Faithlife. If you unfollow the group, the card should disappear.

Click the card to open the Precept Faithlife Group page, then use the three-dots menu on the far-right of the page to leave the group. You'll need to restart Logos 8 for the card to disappear.

That removed it but why is this one group single out to add a card if you follow it, but other groups do not? And why would you create a card with inconsistent with all the rest of the other cards, i.e. no menu?  There are 4,861 followers of this group who are potentially going to be upgrading to L8 in the coming days, weeks or months so the result of this design decision is going to potentially confuse 4,861 users who potentially are going to reach out to FL for support on this issue because it is not obvious how to remove a card for this group.  I hope you look at changing the  this card in a coming release in order to make it consistent with all other cards.

I'm sorry I have to shake my head at you guys so often but you really just don't seem to think about the impact upon all users in what you do only the 'many users' who complained. You forget the 'many users' who are silent because they are happy with the way things are and are not looking for anything to be changed.

(I prefer the L7 layout, too.)

Look - you all aren't Verbum users who (a) had lectionary lose necessary functionality (b) had saints lose necessary functionally plus being built in a way that doesn't work with the resource it was built for (c) caught the fact the either Daily Devotional isn't working right or they incorrectly assigned type in the library ..... and that's just in the Dashboard ...

MJ I hope they get this fixed sooner rather than later, it's not acceptable for this to be done to Verbum users. It's disgraceful.

David, I have prioritized my Bibles, Dictionaries, Commentaries, Atlases and other Miscellaneous resources.  For example, my number one prefferred Bible is ESV. But, where I go to church and where I use my IPad, the Bible of choice is NIV. In Logos 7 Desktop my Default Bible, as selected on my HomePage was NIV and that is the Bible that would show up on my IPad. But, in a search, since ESV was prioritied higher than NIV it showed up first.

Unfortunately this is what I am remembering and since I am now using Logos 8 I cannot go back and check my facts. I am just under the impression that in Logos 7 they were two different things. 

But, I may be wrong . . . I often am.

HI John

I don't understand a couple of things here

John C Connell Jr.:
For example, my number one prefferred Bible is ESV. But, where I go to church and where I use my IPad, the Bible of choice is NIV. In Logos 7 Desktop my Default Bible, as selected on my HomePage was NIV and that is the Bible that would show up on my IPad

The default Bible selected on the homepage in Logos 7 was your highest prioritised Bible. And this propogated from desktop to mobile. So that explains why the NIV would show as preferred on the iPad

John C Connell Jr.:
But, in a search, since ESV was prioritied higher than NIV it showed up first.

Prioritisation does not affect search results in this way so not sure what you mean here. Any clarification?

Graham

Yeah, I don't like 8 at all. Used to be I put in a passage and the whole thing opened all my Bibles and several other resources and now it takes 10 minutes to open all the stuff that used to just open naturally. Having just a 'SEARCH' option is HORRIBLE! I want my 7 back.

Jon, you're more likely to get help if you start a thread with the issues you're having rather than posting to a thread that's been dormant for 7 months.

That said, it sounds to me like you're not liking the default Passage Study Layout (what opens when you type a passage into to Go box). This can be customized quite easily... Get your layout setup like you want it, including linksets, then from the Layouts menu select "Replace with current layout" next to the Passage Study layout in the Home Page Layouts section.
