The Logos Bible Software desktop application version 8.7 is now available to all users.

To immediately update to the current stable version, enter the Update Now command. Otherwise, the app will automatically update the next time it's scheduled to check for updates.

Notable New Features

Context Menu

The Context Menu in resources has new styling, and is now laid out left-to-right. You can find out more information from the Release Notes and this Blog Post.

Resource Text Selection Menu

This new feature provides quick access to commonly used commands and tools. 

Update: We are aware of the issue with the Resource Text Selection Menu not showing up. We are working on a fix and will be shipping and SR as soon as possible.

Just curious. Is there an ETA for the new context menu to be launched in the web app?

Just Updated and enjoy the new menu. But, the "Show Selection Menu" option is not available in Program Settings.

Thanks,

just to let others know, the "Set Show Selection Menu to Yes" command won't work either.

Is it possible to turn it on from the command menu? I've tried "Set Show Selection Menu to yes" but that doesn't work.

Love what this update brings! One issue I am having is that whenever I bring up the context menu, there is no hover over feature for items in the main, left column that are too long & don't fit within the allotted space. Case in point, when right clicking on a word in my NA 28, I have four options that all read "Lexham Discourse Greek New Testament..." with, seemingly, no discernible way to differentiate them within the menu.

Sorry for the delay on the Selection Menu, folks. We overlooked a small but important detail to turn it on for all users. We are working on a fix, and we'll put out a service release ASAP.

So can I jump to a morphology chart directly from the context menu now? Or do I still have to open a Bible Word Study guide first? (Just wondering since I haven't installed the update yet.)

John, this is unexpected and a bit concerning. Would you please collect logs and share them here?
