Ryan,

The note on the top of the FAQ should probably be removed since this is no longer a private beta and few people reading this were ever under the NDA. :)

Just to put in perspective, I understand that the speed of Logos is in part due to the comprehensive indexing it does before you use the resources.  I bought Logos Scholar this week.  I have a 2.2GHz Macbook with 4meg ram, and it took about 7 hours to finish indexing with the cooling fan running nice and fast (yes, it is doing some serious work for a change).

Indexing takes resources and time, and our patience allows it to complete without resetting all the time. Wink

When you install the Alpha, the books on your Mac are copied over and newer versions are downloaded from the server.  The process is designed to be automatic, so barring any Alpha bugs, all you need to do is install the latest Alpha drop.

I went ahead and excluded Library/Application Support/Logos4/Data/____/LibraryIndex/ (Library under my user, not under the main library...and the "___" is a folder which I imagine is unique to my installation...a crypting alphanumeric name including one period too).

It's also interesting that Libronix put resources under the main /Library whereas Logos4 puts it under the user's...

Ok,

     In a world of freebies and extras I'd like to officially say what know one else will probably say....Here goes.  Bob,  for those of us who rolled the dice and bought logos4 for Mac and are going through the trenches and delaying our total experience to a futuristic date are there any bells or whistles for us?  You know,  like an extra free download or some really cool Mac feature that isn't available for the Windows side?  Some of us are having to purchase parallels, etc.....So how about you guys coming up with something like a really cool feature on the Mac side or something for our wait???  WHat do ya think?      Ok folks don't throw eggs at me or tell me to suffer through trials ,etc......I'm only stating what 95 % of you are thinking...........Come on LOGOS you can do it????

Geary, 

Bob P. has said he would like to take advantage of the Mac environment and said he plans on integrating some new "cool" features just for us.  

You can read his comments here

http://community.logos.com/forums/p/5448/44403.aspx#44403

followed by some suggestions.  He is looking for other specifics though if you have something in mind.

Yes, I do.  I have several MAC ideas on a serious note.  Don't throw eggs again at me though......I think the developers at "GLO"  and "Illumina"  are on to something.  Yes,  those programs aren't for the serious scholarship but there is no reason that LOGOS 4.7 or LOGOSMAC can't adapt some of those amazing graphics features.....MAC users love a.  drag and drop features ....so the more the better with LOGOS  b. graphics par excellence, video tutorials interlaced to 3D Graphics photos of Holyland......LOGOS could use Ray Vander Laan's series are excellent done on location in the Holy Land!!  from Zondervan and interlace it to LOGOSMAC.   C.  If there isn't a feature to upload photos or drag and drop into some sort of journal/study page then that's an idea, too.   D.  Drag and Drop features from LOGOSMAC articles/photos/ bible passages to "PAGES" or WORDfor MAC....  I truly think GLO is for my kids but looking at the demo at LIFEWAY my kids were so drawn to it....I must admitt I was, too....There is no reason that LOGOS couldn't adopt that technology......I think 360 degree virtual tours are awesome........On location scholars in Israel, etc.  I just returned from 12 wks in Israel and have thousands of photos and video I'd love to upload to some sort of MACLOGOS interface journal book or something.......Anyway,,,,those are some insights into my wish list......Ok,  I've only owned my software one night and look at the possiblities..........Blessings to you guys....

Not exactly Mac specific, though I use one exclusively. I would love to see more liturgical resources. For example, I am a member of a 1928 BCP Anglican parish (studying to be a priest). It would be nice to have at least the 1928 and 1979 BCP's available as fully searchable, linked resources. Older editions would be nice as well in addition to the 1940 Hymnal. As it stands right now, Logos caters to Protestant Christians (understandably) but it would be excellent if we could see more Anglican, Orthodox and Roman liturgical sources added.

I am downloading the update from your link.  Thanks.

And now... stupid questions time ;-)

After I knew that Alpha 6 was available, I launched L4Mac A5.  I sat and watched it.  Nothing happened.

Should I have waited some amount of time?  Should there be a menu item to check for updates?  Am I just too anxious for the next release of the amazing alpha?

Regards,

Steve

Steve Brannon:

It should detect the new version when it logs in so it does happen fairly quickly.

Steve Brannon:

You can type, "update now" into the command box--without the quotes and that will force L4 to check for updates.  It can take up to 30 minutes though.

Yes, but for good reason Cool

One of the biggest things I can't wait for is the opening pages of Logos 4!  I love the layout and it helps me in my study even more!  What a great tool!  Can't wait for it on the Mac!
