I'm not sure where you've heard this rumor, but I wouldn't put much stock in it (and there are few who are more in the know than the development lead for the project Smile).

As noted in another thread, we've removed the UI for creating handouts from the Mac version pending a rewrite of the feature for the Windows version. Once the rewrite is done, we'll be bringing it over to the Mac—or we might rewrite it first for the Mac and then backport it to Windows.

So, will Handout morph into this thing called Lesson Builder that i have heard about but not experienced but eager to use, as I am fairly new to Logos.

Based on feedback for the handout feature in Windows, we're going to do a re-implementation around a different architecture. This will delay handouts availability on the Mac, but result in a much better feature on both platforms.

Sorry!

This is my new favorite-ist post ever!   Don't get me wrong, I mourn with my Mac bretheren that there will be a feature parity delay in handouts for them.  I do, but to hear of a re-implementation of handouts.... it fills me with giddy anticipation!  Whoo Whoo!

thanks Bob for hearing our request about handouts. Now is there any time frame or anticipation when we'll see them on place???

I'm like you; I would like this feature yesterday, but I guess that Cameron's post in http://community.logos.com/forums/t/6747.aspx about when Logos 4 Mac will be ready is appropriate here:

 

5b) When will my favorite feature be implemented?

As soon as possible ;-).

5c) I really want my favorite feature to be finished soon! Is there anything I can do about it?

Handouts probably won't appear on the Mac for quite a while. That's the gist of Bob's and David's posts on this topic above and in other threads. Because there are plans to rewrite the feature on Windows, we're not going to spend the time getting the current handouts feature working on the Mac.

Will it be more on par with lesson software such as Logos Lesson Builder and LESSONmaker? If so, that'd be so amazing!

Currently, we're focusing on getting Print/Export plus the other 4.2a features wrapped up. Handouts rewrite is still a future TODO.

Tom, thanks for the update.  I use the hand outs feature all the time and would cast my vote for making it better (when the time is right).  Logos has done some amazing things to advance Bible study software and I can only imagine what will become of hand outs once it's in their cross-hairs.

I don't know if this can be done, because I haven't played with handouts that much, but it'd be nice to be able to copy and paste pictures or have an extra option similar to "send to power point" but for it to say "send to current handout, X handout, or new handout."

Thanks!

Not yet.  Workaround is using Personal Books (released with Logos 4.3).

Logos 4.5 development is focused on sync v2 framework improvement and implementation for cross platform sync (in any direction).

Not to mention text scaling on Mac for non-resource display panels (e.g. reading lists, explorer, notes, guides, passage lists, etc.),  notes and highlighting changes/improvements, and on page footnotes in paged view in resources, I think there are some Mac/Windows parity issues being addressed too.

But, you are correct, handouts is still Windows only for now.
