How do I get this feature to do something? anything?

Try, for example, the Gabriel etc. map (also under Life of Jesus).

Yes - but quite limited and I suspect only relates to the "Logos Bible Maps, Vol x" collections

This has something.

but selecting the "event" for that doesn't

Thank you, Mark and Graham ... now I've at least seen an example of results ...

Graham, is what you are showing a bug or an undocumented feature?

Neither. It's the way it's designed to work.

Selecting the event (or person/place) in Atlas, is only intended to display a list of maps that match that event (or person/place). You're supposed to select the map below in order to proceed. The media collections are tied into specific maps, not events or people.

The media, therefore, gives you a presentation-friendly version of the map for use in PowerPoint or Proclaim.

Thanks for the explanation.

By the way, you can see all these media collections in the Media Browser. Filter by "Logos Bible Maps, Vol. 1" (or vol. 2) in the Media Collection facet. There are 132 of them in English.

The old Logos Bible Atlas stand alone software was better. I used it for years but it will not work any longer in MS Windows 10. I liked how you could customize every map, select whatever cities you wanted to see on the map, and then put it in 3D format and be able to see elevation differences.

Still hums along, though I use BibleMapper more (same choose and edit).  No offense intended to Logos, but I can't remember using Logos Atlas. More so, the various Bible Atlas resources.

Yes +1

It was the best Bible Atlas I've ever used... & still is, if it'd just work.

I have tried to load Logos Bible Atlas using the compatibility mode for Windows 95, but it still does not load, saying "This app can't run on our PC."

Without sounding ungrateful for the amazing tools that we currently have, on my wish list is still an Atlas tool that blows us out of the water.

Not disagreeing but as I am currently documenting parts of the Atlas process I find some important features missing, but I can't honestly prioritize them over some more basic missing functions.
