When I open a passage guide it populates fine but when i click or double click on any volume in the list nothing happens… also high-lites  are no longer functional, unless you hold down the control key. In for a penny in for a pound I tried to downgrade back to stable release only to be told that isn't possible Please reinstall latest version. I will be using it  but obviously if i had a choice i would have went back to a simpler more functioning Logos… 

Hmm

Are you experiencing a difficulty beyond what was noted in the release notes? I haven't had a chance to use the highlighting feature yet.

Sorry for your troubles Dan. Tongue Tied It is a good reminder, however, that betas are often buggy. Personally, I switch off of beta channel until things settle down a bit to avoid situations like this.

Another approach is using several Mac OS X user accounts so stable and beta can be installed on one computer.  Personally have Stable release in my Applications folder while Logos 4 Mac Beta is in my Documents folder.

You might also consider using another startup drive for stable work so as not to clobber your necessary stuff. Or keep your beta testing on a Win installation Wink

I can confirm that the passage guide WILL NOT allow any resource to open! I entered Hosea 1 into the passage guide, the Bible text appears along with one resource and any attempt to select additional resources yields nothing! I am "dead in the water" on 4.6 beta 1!

I have found that it is only my commentaries in the passage guide, that will not open. Resources that are not in the "commentaries" sections all seem to open and function as expected.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.

Thanks to all of you that do beta testing.  [Have done beta testing elsewhere and know what a pain it can be.  But it is a needed step in getting a quality product. ]

Thank you for finding all the whoops so I don't see them!

No highlighting shortcuts on Bible either. I can pull up highlighter in 'Tools', but no shortcut buttons work.

Highlights will function IF YOU HOLD DOWN THE [control] key when pushing the short cut key.

Thanks - do you think that was purposeful...or a glitch that needs to be worked out?

I remember a discussion about a similar issue a little while back. I don't know if this is a regression, or if it is because of changes necessary due to Mountain Lion coming out next week.

There is an active case for this issue.

If you are referring to highlighting shortcuts, there is an active case for this issue.

Well if you can survive submariner duty I suppose i will survive beta testing. It is only slightly in convenient needing to switch books rather than clinking on them.

Becoming more efficient in the use of the open command: "open Moo Romans to Rom 1.18" provides two choices because my library has two commentaries on Romans by Douglas Moo. Can then cycle through my Technical commentaries (that's a collection) on Romans 1:18 using the parallel resources button—or the right/left arrow keys.

With a little practice, this becomes an efficient operation. Still would prefer the PG, however.

I can understand many of the obscure bugs that get through in these beta releases, but how does something like this escape the notice. That's like letting a model of a car out of the factory where none of the radios turn on. You'd think they'd find a fix for such a big feature before releasing a beta. I can understand it showing in internal builds, but not a public beta.
