I like that version 3 color codes abbreviation hyperlinks (green) differently from Bible verses (blue) and secondary sources (red). This is a helpful distinction that I would like to see in version 4. It helps me to know what to expect when I click on or hover over a link.

I prefer the different colors as well.

I haven't installed 4 yet - I still live pre Libronix much of the time - but I would miss the 'color coding' as well.

Harry,

It makes the SESB apparatus almost illegible

Wow!  The 3.0 version is so much easier to read that the print version.  Sometime I gotta get SESB.

Kenneth did you see the earlier thread about SESB? http://community.logos.com/forums/t/2779.aspx  (more screen shots there)

It really is a wondeful resource and without doubt better than in print. My print versions of the NA27 and BHS sit collecting dust.

I finally bit the bullet to update to the 3 version (I've had 1 and 2).

It is a pity that it is a very difficult resource to use in v4.0

I first complained about this on September 8th.

Notice that the v4.0 (bottom) example is more legible principally due to the better typeface (and scaling).

In the v4.0 example, more subtly, apparatus references are emphasized in blue.

I find it helpful to be able to recognize each kind of data type by applying distinguishing color emphases to the data type references.

I can not verify v4.0 options.  In v3.0 it is possible to specify the preferred color with which to emphasize each data type.

Re: Emphasize This Data Type by Color

In Logos 3. certain lexicons were a horrendous clutter of black, blue, red and green text. (We called them "fruitcake.") We wanted to tone down the text to improve reading.

If you wish to highlight a particular datatype, or data pattern, you can now create a Visual Filter document and create a search that finds what you want highlighted and then apply a formatting change.

I confess I don't know offhand what to search for to catch the apparatus marks (though I imagine just putting their characters in the query would work), and I don't have a copy on my home machine to test, but I'll look into it when I'm back at my office desk.

Never thought of that. I'll ahve to give it a whirl.

Sorry to resurrect an ancient thread, but has anyone gotten this to work?  I just got the SESB today and would love to have those critical marks be more visible, but I can't get the visual filter to do anything with those marks, even as a direct copy-and-paste (which yields X's and check marks and other odd things in the visual filter box; I'm assuming this is a font difference).
