The interface in Wordsearch Made sense to me. As a New to Logos user it appears to me that I will have to spend a LOT more time learning Logos than studying the Bible or preparing my lessons and sermon outlines for a long time to come. It sure isn't what I want to do. Mt Wordsearch Library is pretty large with a lot of investment, I am thankful that Logos is making an effort to to migrate the resources but I honestly don't know if I can migrate to SUCH a different way of doing things. I am almost 65 with effects of a Traumatic Brain Injury three years ago which makes remembering new ways difficult. I may have to just continue using my outdated Wordsearch offline. I am very frustrated already. In 2007 I had to abandon $5,000 dollars worth of Bible Software so it's unfortunately not my first rodeo. I use to build and repair computers from the early 1980's to 2003 and do some programing too so I am not dumb but, I am sick of having to abandon things that work GREAT!

Welcome to the forums. My father, a retired rancher and county computer nerd went into the schools every morning to solve computer problems well into his 80's. By  his mid-nineties the decrease in coordination and mental acuity made adjusting to new software difficult. But I found if it was presented one skill at a time for skills that he needed right then, he could still handle a computer. Keep coming to the forums to ask questions for exactly what you need. There is much of Logos you'll never need to use.

Daniel, 
I understand your pain, being both a Bible Explorer and Wordsearch 4 user, the switch to cross format hit me badly too.

There are a large number of us who have used multiple software platforms before, dont be afraid to ask in the "Wordsearch" forum here, "How do I?", as many will assist you

Hi Daniel,

Ask all the questions you want about how to do stuff on the forums, and you'll get all the assistance possible. The community on these forums is very accustomed to helping people new to Logos with all kinds of stuff. Learning Logos on your own can be challenging. Learning with forum dwellers' assistance is a lot easier. [:-)]

Sorry, I can't change your mind against your will.

I think Dennis may be upset that two of his Bibles weren't imported in the first round of license transfers: https://community.logos.com/forums/p/193831/1117064.aspx#1117064

A few resources of note that are in Logos and should transfer, but have not:

NASB77

Preacher's Outline and Sermon Commentaries

AW Tozer Collection

Expository Preaching Outlines - Olford

Please let me know the status of these. I realize there are many that are not yet in Logos, but these resources are currently available.

Thanks!!

actually I got this one from the merge (it's just called NASB)

John Fidel:
Preacher's Outline and Sermon Commentaries

Do you mean POSB? (the B stands for Bible, even though those are commentaries), if so, I got one [Romans] from the merge

We don't have a record of NASB77 in your Wordsearch licenses. Another customer has reported missing Tozer as well (https://community.logos.com/forums/p/193801/1117039.aspx#1117039) so there may be something we need to look into further there. We probably won't have any updates until early next week, sorry.

Not a problem. I can e mail whatever license information that would be helpful in getting this resolved. Just let me know. I have a complete list of WS resources.

Thanks.

I think that is the reaction of many people new to Logos Bible Software.

Let me suggest you begin by doing the simplest things possible with Logos. Launch your studies from the Logos Home Page by typing a passage or topic into the Go bar and hitting Enter. This will give you simple but helpful layouts of your Bible and key Logos tools. From there, you can add additional tools or do searches from the right click menu on words.

Then I'd suggest you view one of the Logos video tutorials every day (or at whatever pace you like) to add to your understanding and your skill set.

You can keep going back to WordSearch for awhile to get things done you haven't yet learned to do in Logos.

Take a small bite at a time and it won't be too difficult.

Best of luck.

Remember there is a lot of help available in the regular Logos 8 Forum besides here. This is a friendly place and no question is too simple.
