I love the new Logos Web App, it gives me almost everything online that I have in the desktop program itself. And that's important because for traveling I use a Chromebook that has a different OS and little memory with which to store power programs like the total Logos program. 

However, I've noticed that when I use the app on my PC, I can run the lexham interlinear greek/english Bible, but on the Chromebook I can't. Does anyone know why? If it's just a glitch in Chrome itself, I'll have to live with it, but I'm wondering if I just haven't turned it on correctly. Perhaps there's a button to allow Chrome to read the layers of print in interlinear Bibles?

Can anyone give me any information or advice on that?

The app supports showing interlinear lines - this is on Windows 10

If you have those options selected and the interlinear lines aren't showing then it is probably a Chromebook-specific issue.

Thanks Graham, but as I said, I have a Chromebook and not Windows. I said I didn't have a "PC" but I probably should have explained that PCs are usually Windows based and Chromebooks are "Chromium" based, and that's not the same. For some reason the interlinear text shows up just fine on my Windows 10 computer, but not on my Chromebook tablet. It only shows the Greek, not the English or lemma below it as in your screenshot. 

Any other thoughts (from you or anybody else)?

Hi Stan

Stan Duncan:

Sorry I did understand that - I was simply trying to show that it does work on Windows and so (confirming) it was probably a Chromebook specific issue. I had misunderstood that you had tried it on a Windows 10 computer as well.

Apologies for any confusion.

I have an acer Chromebook and this works the same way as it does on windows (edge browser).  The order of the rows is different than it is in other interlinears but the dropdown and selections work. What are you seeing that is different?

I do have the  "enable compatibility mode" selected (under the far right control bar icon with the user picture) selected.  If I turn this to "Disable compatibility mode" LGNTI only shows the greek with no tool options.  You might check that setting.

Mike, you are a genius.Smile I clicked on the compatibility button and then suddenly I saw the lines of Greek, English, Lemma, etc. show up. Plus, some of my other screens (like the Gospel Parallels) are now much more clear. What on earth does the "enable/disable Compatibility" do? What does it make the program compatible with?

Compatibility mode toggles between two different resource display technologies. Our primary display is far more advanced and uses the same technology that the desktop uses. Compatibility mode is much more similar to the technology used on Biblia.com.

Primarily, it is useful for devices that do not support WebGL or in other cases that users encounter issues with the more fully-featured resource display.

First, I’d like to thank the Logos team for all the work they’ve done on the web app 😁😁😁. I really is useful when I’m away from home, don’t want to take an expensive computer, or use a computer that I don’t have Logos on (macbook).  I know that this is a little off topic but are there features that require webgl? In addition to the above issues I’ve noticed that it breaks mobile education (blank window with the words “this function is not supported”).

Thanks
