Does anyone know if these are the full texts, maps, charts, pictures, drawings etc compared to the print version?  I have ran into issues in past where the books sold on Logos had some missing pictures etc because copyright of specific pictures did not allow electronic versions.

Thanks

I don't have the print set to compare, but based on what I've seen.. yes.

Some of the smaller photos in the print edition have a very high resolution, but the electronic versions a low resolution.

I would call customer service (or send an email). Of course, if you aren't happy with the resource, you can request a refund.

I have it in Logos as well as the NT set in paperback, and I have to admit they did a pretty good job of making it the same. All the pictures and maps are in the Logos edition, the best I can tell. Having it in Logos certainlly adds hits to your Biblical Places and Biblical Things searches, though I don't think it picks up every piece of media the way you expect it to.

I can't confirm it being an identical match to the print edition (I don't have the print edition). But I do like them in Logos Big Smile

I did send an email to support asking this question back on the 14th but have not heard a response other than the auto respond when I sent it...... Confused

Yes all the full texts, maps, charts, pictures, drawings in the print edition is in the Logos edition. Hope this helps?

Thanks for all the feedback.  However I was hoping for a official response as well.  My question that I sent to support has fallen on deaf ears it seems, I never received a response.  Having said all that I guess I will have to pass on buying the set.  It is fairly expensive and I do not want to get burned by buying something that is missing resources or in some other way is abridged.

Ok if it is an official response you are looking for. I have both the hard copy and the Logos edition, the Logos edition is an exact replica of the hard copy. With Logos you get a 30 days trial period, if you are not satisfied you can ask for a refund. I guess what I am trying to say, I can't see how you will get burnt with such a guarantee in place.
