I would strongly suggest that if you are going to sell a book or a set of books, and are going to have a video explain what they can accomplish, that said video is using the latest or at least has a video that uses the latest version of Logos. My example is the Lexham Discourse Bible (8 vol set). I purchased it based on watching the video that accompanied the ad. Then when I tried to use them as per the video that wasn't possible as Logos 8 uses these resources in a completely different manner. I used the chat service only to be sent a link to a video that was exactly the video that was used in the advertisement. The instruction video acknowledged that it was out dated and linked you to the Logos 8 help section where there is "no" corresponding training video. So now I have a resource that I have to try to figure out how to use by watching videos that skirt around the edges but never exactly talk about this resource in the same way the ad video did. I am not an expert in Logos 8 so the video training is paramount for me in being able to use Logos. I feel that this type of sale of a resource with outdated training is a bit disingenuous of Faith Life.

I agree they should not be linking to inaccurate training material and need to ensure they build into their project timelines the updating of training / advertising material that is rendered useless by the program update.

Doug,

If you are having a specific issue with this resource this forum is the place to ask your question. I am sorry for your inconvenience and I hope FL addresses this complaint in the near future.

Unfortunately my suggestion spelled out my problem. I want to be able to use it but will need specific training to accomplish that. I don't think this forum is the place for that unless someone knows of a video that deals with this specific issue, i.e.Discourse Database and Visual Filters. Here is the link to the videos that Logos help sent me to. Notice their disclaimer at the top. Now if you know of a logos 8 video that replaces this I would be eternally grateful.

Actually this is exactly the place for that and if we know your specific issues we may even to point you to videos from other sources that meet your needs. Off the top of my head, I don't recall any major change so I need some specifics to even start to help you.

Doug,

Sorry for the hiatus. But, I had to watch the video to ascertain what might be your issue with the information presented. Basically, the only thing that has changed since the production of that video is the organization of the Context Menu you obtain upon right click of the words within the text of your Bible. FL has put what was once on the left side on the right and vice versa. So, if you need us to point things out to you with screenshots we can do that. Otherwise, things follow as shown in the video. Smile
