Ruben Sandoval:

2) What do we do with titles that are not yet migrated and that are not in the list provided that are planned to be migrated (for example: I see The NIV Study Bible has not been added, nor is it on the list of to be added; the same is true for The Founders Journal and some other "older" titles from the Doxa days)? 

Please continue to report these anomalies as you discover them.  This is very helpful as we work through the transition.  

Is there a specific place I should report these to?

Thanks!

Thank you, John! It would have taken me a long time to figure this out for myself! I like my chances much better now. :)

I am not seeing any books from my Wordsearch library transferred to my logos account yet. How many days does it take?

Thanks!!! Not intuitive, really. I thought it would affect "talking dictionaries"

Me too I go back to Wordsearch. I'm not deleting from my computer. Hope it keeps working. So far not impressed with Logos tooo cumbersome.

To enjoy Logos one has to  invest time and money to learn step by step by watching the Logos training by authorized trainer Morris P.

Blessings in Christ.

I stopped - I was also forming a list of items that I'm missing and don't see and ended up putting those in an email to customer support. I can copy/paste that here if needed, but some of those do exist in Logos but not in my new Logos Library.

So far, my experience has been less than satisfactory. I tried downloading the Logos software to my computer to no avail (says file missing). When using the web version, I noticed that my resource, Dispensational Truth, was text only, and the charts and other features are "sold separately." I paid almost $100 for that resource, and now Logos expects me to pay even more to maintain what I had. Moreover none of study resources have migrated yet. So, I will have to continue using both apps until then.  

For folks like me who loved the simplicity of Wordsearch, I am disappointed thus far with this so-called superior product. Most of us wrestle with complicated software and complex programs at work that are ever changing. It was nice having a simple resource to study God's Word.

Where did you see the file missing note? 

Jeff Frazier:

Someone from Faithlife will have to respond about Dispensational Truth. I think it is their intention to provide everything they've received from Lifeway/Wordsearch, but charts and maps might take longer to produce. 

Jeff Frazier:

Some others have not yet had their licenses get carried over yet. Someone from Faithlife can look into your specific situation.

Superior and more user friendly are two different things. It will take awhile to learn Logos. Many people struggle with it at first. Sorry you have to make the change, but at least Lifeway was able to find a company to take over the software.

Hi Jeff,

Welcome to Logos! 

Thanks for letting us know that we hadn't unlocked all of the Dispensational Truth content for Wordsearch users. That title is broken up into two ebooks in Logos, and only the first was unlocked.

That's been fixed now, so you should see the Charts as a separate resource in your library.

I can't find College Press NIV Commentary which I bought in wordsearch,

Overall, I like Logos, (I’ve used both since QuickVerse days and Libronix days) and each had strengths

For example, Logos is a true 64 bit app, and it doesn’t seem to care how many resources I have open.  It is so fast!  I like the ability of being able to change the background colors to make it easier on the eyes.  Logos has so much power, I doubt I will ever use half of it.

Wordsearch had strengths too.. For example, being able to click a button to turn on/off Strong’s numbers is amazingly simple.  Or having the Strong’s talking Greek Hebrew dictionary available which allows me to learn to say words my tongue isn’t use to pronouncing with the click of a icon.  lol.   And ZipScript… allows me to put Bible Verses in my PowerPoint slides so easily

I understand there will be growing pains... I can't believe how much work must've gone into this change over and so appreciate the work that's been done so far.  I do wish there was a utility we could run... comparing our WordSearch libraries with our Logos Libraries and list out the differences.  I've spent several hours today trying to see what I had in WS vs what I have in Logos.  And it's frustrating when I see a commentary missing in Logos.  Then I look at the Logos Store (for example at the Teach the Text commentary) and it shows that I own all but the 2nd Corinthians one (I actually own all of them in WS) but none of that commentary have come down to my Logos yet... Is this a bug? should I report it or should I be patient... I think probably the latter... but is that right?  I don't want to be a pain... after all WS still works.  

I think this will be a good change over and I just have to learn some new tricks... but you know what they say about old dogs... 

Thank you again

Kennet:

I am having the same issue. I had purchased years ago the New Testament set of the College Press NIV Commentary. It shows up in the list of “Products Owned” when I’m logged in to the WS website. But, I don’t have access to this set in Logos. As I’ve read a lot of the recent posts here in these forums, other users like us are having similar difficulties. I believe Logos will be looking into these discrepancies and fixing the issues as they can. We have to be patient.

It looks like we have a mismatch on our side that's preventing these from being unlocked. Since these are in Logos, you should get access to them soon when we fix this. Thanks for your patience.

I'm waiting to download any new resources late Monday evening to give Logos a chance to sync a bigger chunk of my licenses. Then I'll run periodic resource downloads. I'm not in a major rush. I still have WS running on my old Mac if I need something "critical".
