Nicely done when I look at the amount of improvement in this version. But are there directions anywhere on how to convert resources that are currently downloaded into cloud resources? Thanks.

Select them in the library and either right click to remove them or open the info panel in the library and use the control there.

When I saw that one could use the word "study" to get suggestions from the Go Box, I thought I'd try that out.  When I did, I was surprised by what happened: ALL other windows were closed and a new window came up with different items relating to the topic I had entered.  (In the Go Box I entered "study glory".)  Is this what is supposed to happen?  I would prefer that an additional window be opened rather than my current windows all being closed.  I would appreciate clarification about this process.  Thank you.

If you select one of the options in the Layout section then, yes, the associated layout will be opened and anything you currently have open will be removed.

It opens a layout and not just the associated Guide

I agree with you but that's not how it is designed to work.

Thanks Andrew

Is it still necessary to "rebuild index" to reduce the index size after removing resources from the local device?

Thanks! It's easier to see the amount of work that went in once you put together the complied release notes for the entire beta. The team worked really hard.

Yes.

Thanks Andrew

BTW - I don't think this needs to be automated because most people would not want the drain of a full index just because a book has been removed its good to know though for when multiple books have been removed.

Too bad nothing has been improved on the sermon editor and the request for the ability to add pictures that zoom in and out within the document never materialized 😟

Thanks for the update.  My only comment would be that the default in settings should be to download all resources set to yes, not no.  The reason?  We have always expected resources to automatically download.  Today for the first time, a new resource did not download and I did not know why until I read the release notes.  Not many will read the release notes.  And so the problem begins when one is expecting a large update or purchases a large number of resources at one time.  How does one remember what is purchased in a library of thousands of resources?  I suppose everyone has their system.  I am simply saying that I could not understand why the resource I purchased today would not download. So having the setting set to automatically download with the option of changing the setting to no....I would think that would resolve some frustrations some may have.

For users who upgraded their installation from 8.3 to 8.4, the setting for that installation is supposed to default to automatically download all new resources.

For new installations, you are given the option the first time you run the application, and the default is to download all new resources unless you choose the minimal installation option.

Are you saying that this is not the behavior you are experiencing?

This was not the behavior in my case.  This morning the update downloaded.  I read this thread on the forum.  I checked what was updated and saw there was nothing new.  I then purchased a book.  The book did not download.  I searched the library for the book and found it and clicked on it and it opened a preview with the message that I can download it if I want (and of course I did download it because I wanted to). 

I then wondered what was happening and checked this thread again and read the release notes which said that added to the settings was the option to download all or not.  I checked my settings and saw that it was set to NO.  I changed the setting to yes to correct it for the future. 

I then wrote on this thread my concern.  Obviously for me, the setting was set to NO when it should be default be set to yes.  That is what I am suggesting.
