Did the set to verbum command disappear in L9 or do we choose that from somewhere within the Logos Bible Software?

Thanks!

Awesome! I read somewhere it was “deprecated” but I think we should keep it just to have the option when we need it 👍😁👌

For the uninitiated, 'deprecated' is a transliterated Hindi word meaning:  "We'll eventually kill this feature that users like 'cause we don't want to fool with it anymore".

And that is why we need two computers. One running Logos and one running Verbum.

Or you could install Logos and Verbum on the same computer.

Yes, I could install both on one, But most of my studies do not depend on which they run on so I have a backup computer.

Now I'm definitely confused.

All of my resources are registered to my account. Irrespective of whether I use Verbum or Logos, I have access to my entire library. It seems that you use two accounts?

FL has 'talked' about disassociating Logos and Verbum so that at some future time the libraries of the two might not be at the same software level.

That is Logos 9 can not read Logos 2 library files. So likewise, some time in the future, Logos 12 [for example] might be released while Verbum is still at Verbum 11.  And the biggest change might be to the library system [Maybe smaller files because of change in type of compression used] so that Verbum 11 can not read Logos 12 files. [[that type of change would require total new down load of full library and recompiling all PBB resources (You did backup your PBB source files I hope.) ]]

Currently it seems that the only difference between the two is some default collections and other fairly small changes that is some ways make big differences to the supper user.

I have never heard this kind of change discussed either internally or externally. The only discussion I've heard with regards to disassociation is centered around removing the command that allows a Logos installation to run as Verbum.

It is not unusual for older versions of the application to not be able to open newer resources. However, it is of critical importance for us that all supported versions of the software be able to open all new formats of our resources, so I don't see a scenario where the latest version of Verbum would be unable to open all of the same books as can be opened in the latest version of Logos.
