New to mac.  have download all 2955 resources.  went well.  however, i have been indexing since yesterday.  mac turned off over night.  does that mean indexing restarted?  also on pc i had the little icon that showed me what percentage was indexed.  can't find anything like that on mac.  is there such a thing?  how long should this take.  it's a 2.7 ghz i7 machine with 4 gb memory?  tks.

Hey Gary! Welcome to the forums (and to Mac)! Smile

Did you turn off the computer? The indexer would not cause the computer to shut down. When Logos is indexing, there is a little icon in the upper right corner of your monitor, to the left of the clock, wifi indicator, etc.

As for the indexing, it does take a long time. What are your hard drive specs? Most importantly, is it an SSD or regular HDD? 

When the indexing process is halted, it should resume where it left off (if that is your concern).

Welcome Big Smile

May want to change Energy Saver settings while indexing so monitor can sleep but computer never sleeps.  Logos 4 Mac indexing can take hours (e.g. my 2.93 GHz i7 took ~14 hours to fully index my library last month, which has 19.7 GB of Resource files).

Restarting Mac before indexing has completely merged causes indexing to start over.

I did a fresh install (newest beta) on a new MacBook Pro Retina. Logos looks very nice!

BUT: Logos is indexing since yesterday. For about 7 hours the icon shows "Logos Bible Software is indexing (99% complete). Is there any chance that the indexer will complete its job this month? Shall I wait?

I wonder whether the Logos people will ever solve those annoying indexing problems and inconveniences.
