Hi I am using Lion. I am able to toggle using a trackpad gesture between applications  that have the full screen button at the bottom right corner of the window. At the moment Logos is missing that button. Could that be easily added? It would make a big improvement...

We're still investigating the new features of Lion and deciding how best to take advantage of them.

You can drag Logos to its own space and do the same thing. In fact, you can probably drag more windows to another space and quickly swipe from one to the other.

I would like full screen support as well. My only computer is my laptop, which has limited screen real-estate. So, the more screen I have, the happier I am. Full screen please!!!

I put in another vote for full screen support. Yes you can do it already, but incorporating it with that new feature in Lion would be sweet!

Thanks for that tip Dewayne.  I had wondered if that was possible and now I know.

I'm using Lion with my new Magic Trackpad (desktop version, not macbook), but can't figure out how to select some text, say, in a commentary, and highlight it, copy it, etc, since there's no button to click to select anything? Selecting text works in other programs I've tried, just not in Logos 4. Any fixes for that?

Selecting text in Logos 4 should work the same way that it does in other applications: press down on the magic trackpad and move your finger without releasing the pressure.

Kent - What David says is true, however I have found it easier to use two fingers. Use your thumb to click down. Keep the pressure applied and use another finger to drag/move the highlighting field.

I'd like to add another vote for Logos including support for Lion's built-in Full Screen function. It would be a fantastic tool for my Logos workflow. Thanks for your consideration!

Full screen for Logos4.

vote for Logos including support for Lion's built-in Full Screen function.

Don't need to wait - if you are comfortable doing a bit of hacking the current Logos app can be made to work full screen using built-in functionality in Lion.

These are the files I found in my L4M application.

$ grep -iRl NSWindowBacking *

English.lproj/Login.nib
English.lproj/MainMenu.nib
English.lproj/MainWindow.nib
English.lproj/ProductActivation.nib
FloatingWindow.nib

If you were to do this please note caution to backup your Logos 4 app. I don't have Lion (yet) so have not been able to test/confirm.

I found that Maximizer was a pretty easy fix. That is what I used for the above screenshots.

Add another vote for fullscreen, especially if you can open up separate windows and take them full screen, would be nice to have quick access to different resources with more real estate on my 13" MBP. The separate desktops idea is working for now, but having it built in would be pretty slick. Keep up the good work!

Having just switched to a Mac, this would be great, please add this.

Zack Chatterton:

If you are only interested in taking separate windows full-screen (as opposed to the entire Logos application): place each window in a separate desktop as mentioned before, then enter 'Reading View' from the top-left book icon. This takes each window into Logos idea of full-screen view.

Then it is easy to swipe between windows. It's quite limited to the way you use Logos, but I've found it works well for now.
