DO NOT UPGRADE TO CATALINA AT THIS POINT

For those who are interested (you know who you are), Apple released the public beta of Catalina, Mac OS 10.15, yesterday. 

I have installed Catalina on an external hard drive for the sake of testing. 

Logos never gets into the initial set up; it simply sits and spins at the "Download Resources" page without making any progress. 

I will continue to install updates to Catalina, and keep you informed as to how Logos does (or doesn't) function.

FYI : I installed Catalina on my 2018 MacBook Pro last night (after doing a backup of course). Logos will not open. It just crashes every time. I downgraded back to Mojave to continue to be able to study.

Same thing here on a Mac Pro and a Mac book pro. Logos will not start- simply dies

As a reminder: FL does not support Logos on beta OS versions. For this reason you should not install one on a "production" machine. Also, just because the app starts working in beta build W, doesn't mean it will work in beta build X, Y or Z. Sometimes later beta builds add in something which "break" other pieces of software, including Logos.

I did install Catalina on my mac and the reason Logos doesn't work is because the Documents folder is empty. All my files are gone. Nothing left. I'm going to have to reinstall from backup. This laptop is almost worthless now. I don't know what Apple is thinking. I tried to look this problem up and there is nothing I can find on the web yet.

Good luck and God bless.

Bruce - I am sorry you lost data, but it is beta software for testing purposes. Data loss should be expected!

What do you mean by the "documents" folder? Logos does not keep any material in the macOS "documents" folder.

I have found the same results. :( There are some very cool capabilities with Catalina though. I have found that web app does work and I can still access all the data on other machines.

I loaded Logos 8.6 Beta 4 (8.6.0.0030) and problem solved. Logos now opens on Catalina with no problems that I can see thus far. The "stable"version of Logos doe not work on Catalina. Same result on my Moac Book Pro and loaded the beta there as well, and now it opens.

I recently upgraded to Public Beta 4. I hadn't used Logos in a little while so I downloaded the latest .dmg file and when trying to install/upgrade I received an error saying that the software couldn't verify the package was from a trusted developer. I went into SystemPreferences>Security on the General Tab in the bottom portion it was showing Logos being blocked. I unlocked it to make changes and allowed Logos and it started with now issues. Still haven't had to chance to ry out the various functions of Logos to verify that they work but at least it's running.

This is (and will be) true of stable unless/until FL puts the app in the app store (which is unlikely).

I removed Logos from my system tonight and then reloaded it and it now works just fine with Catalina. Very pleased to be back up and running.
