Is there a way to view your account summary in L4?  Also, I see that backing up your licences like in L3 is not a possibility anymore.  I would like to install L4 on a PC without internet access and was wondering if there is a way of restoring my licenses on this machine.  I believe copying the resources would not work for this, or would it?  - does anyone know if this is a possibility at this time?

I just got a report on another thread that by syncing your licenses in L3, you can get a report there about what you have in L4. I haven't tried it myself, but why not give it a try and report what you find (and what you don't).

I did as you suggested and, yes, it did update the account summary in L3.  This doesn't help the fact that this doesn't seem to be a feature in L4, but at least it will work until they (maybe) add this ability.  The only problem I found is, there are numerous (150+) resources that show up as:

  • LLS:29.1.10
  • LLS:40.40.29
  • LLS:40.40.44
  • LLS:40.70.1
  • LLS:40.90.2
  • LLS:4000QUESTAN
  • LLS:TNIV
  • LLS:TSK2008
  • LLS:UMRCL
  • LLS:ZIONSYMHEB
  • RVI:AV1873NT
  • RVI:AV1873OT
  • RVI:KJV1900NT
  • RVI:KJV1900OT
  • RVI:LEBNT
  • This is probably due to the fact that the the new resources are not in my "resources" folder in L3...

    Thomas, if you desperately want to know what any of these are, I believe you can type "open lls:29.1.10" into v4's command bar...

    Thanks for the info!  By the way, you can simply type the lls number:

    lls:29.1.10

    and "Open the Bible Reader's Companion" is shown as an option.

    Just got back after being away from the keyboard for a while. This looks really interesting. I'll have to try and remember all this stuff.

    Must admit to not having tested it but remember Bradley writing it somewhere about something at some other time :)

     

    Just something that stuck in my head as I thought how useful it would be

    Is there anyone can help me create a bibliography in Logos 4, the similar kind we can in 3??

    Thanks,

    Sten

    This is a requested feature that we do not yet have in Logos4.

    Want to make it a suggestion, by posting it as such in the suggestions forum?

    EDIT: Actually, this is a feature that is coming. See what's MIssing below for a time line on this and other features.

    Richard,

    Thank you for your prompt response.  Let me tell you, converting Logos 3 to 4 is a nightmare for me.  Lots of features I'm missing and it is not user friendly at all. 

    Thanks,

    Sten

    Very common reactions. Luckily the features are being added - we see them both in the last release and in the current beta. Most people find that after a few hours on L4, they come to prefer it - but initially complaining about user friendliness is normal.

    There has been a discussion about getting a list of books in your library at http://community.logos.com/forums/p/7544/59679.aspx#59679 and http://community.logos.com/forums/t/6462.aspx

     

    There is a workaround while we wait for the bibliography feature in Logos 4 at http://www.4-14.org.uk/off-topic/logos4-bibliographic-report
