I found an apparent bug in Logos 8, that didn't exist before.  If you use a double quote (") in the title of a Collection (ie. Wiersbe's "Be" Series), then select that collection from the Library, Logos then crashes (closes).

I had two Collections using double quotes in the name.  I changed the double quotes in those collection names to single quotes, and solved (worked around) the problem. 

I know creating and using Collections is somewhat old school, and not that important anymore with the powerful Library search tools in Logos 8.  But I have been using Logos since version 3, and still like Collections.  And have used double quotes (") in collection names forever.

I use other special characters in collection names without issues, such as [ ] ( ) - ~ : ' , /

I am using:

  • Logos 8.3 SR-3, 8.3.0.0034
  • Win 7 Pro SP1

Thank you for reporting this, Ron.  I can duplicate this bug.  I am filing a case so that this can be fixed in a future update.

Please accept my apologies for the inconvenience.

Joe,

I created a thread with logs in the beta forum earlier today: https://community.logos.com/forums/t/180417.aspx , since it crashes the latest beta as well. Over there, Jack confirmed the crash is on Mac, too. 

Running Logos 8 latest beta version on Win 10
