"Anticipation....Anticipation....is making us wait."

I did a handout on my Mac using Windows version (thank God you can do such things with a Mac), I liked it, but am certainly looking forward to what you all are working up.  Thank you for your efforts to make it something that will be good and useable first.  I know you're all working constantly to make LOGOS better.  I'm very much looking forward to this feature on Mac.  

Maybe I'll ask Santa... Wink

Blessings to you all, especially during this Advent Season.

In His Grip,

Murph

Seriously old BUMP

Saddened to see Handouts squashed in Mac because the tech is based on "deprecated Windows tech" with no future support. I'm curious why the PC version of Handouts even survived transition from L4 to L5 if this is the case. L5 just came out.. 

Wouldn't it be feasible to create a new Handouts Feature that was based on Logos Tech? Seriously looking at how much Logos now does (Vyrso, FaithBible, Proclaim, Biblia, iOS/Android...not to mention all the amazing work and new features that have gone into L5 and Mobile Logos), it should be possible (albeit time consuming) given the talent possessed in Bellingham. I'd love to see a revamped Handouts feature, not a simple...not gonna do it answer b/c Windows has issues not compatible with Mac.

Drag and drop inside a pre-made but adjustable template. Kind of like an old-school CMS website template or even a CSS Tumblr style. HTML5 should be more than sufficient to do this with very little coding...just use old designs. Grant it, I'm not sure how L5 or even L4 work, but it would seem Logos is already utilizing some of these features in Proclaim...

I do realize I can create a handout inside of Word and then upload that as a PBB that will be in my library and can be accessed, but it really seems like more work than what I'm trying to do. I just want to create on the fly inside of Logos Desktop.

all about Christ,

It is a "hidden" feature and Logos wants to discourage its use, so it is turned off by default for new users. As a Mac only user, I have never used the "handouts" feature, but I have heard mostly negative things about the feature.

Logos was very very cautious this round not to "remove" anything by not bringing it forward. Moreover this is a compatibility thing. If (since) I already had handouts on my L4, it is safe to assume I may want them in L5.  I believe it is due to both caution and an observation of the actual usage data.

Note that this is my assessment of the situation and not some secret information from Logos.

Certainly. Since new features do crop up during the constant upgrade process - who knows?  I certainly do not.

 

Hmm Sarcasm is my love language. Obviously I love you.

Likewise not know; once Logos has implemented cross platform low level text shaping may have some new feature options.
