Ryan B.:

Maybe I'm the only one but my reading plans DO NOT show up under devotionals on my ipad. However, they DO show up under the documents tab.

Strange.

So I found If I went to the devotionals pane, clicked on the + button, I was able to manually add it. I suppose I just assumed it would automatically be there. My bad.

PL:
Also, when I'm offline, searching on the Library screen will only give the spinning wheel (e.g. edition:e or edition:ebook).  Is it supposed to work when offline?

Hi Peter,

Library Search doesn't work when offline - this is a known issue.  Thanks for the report.!

Kevin Byford:

  • Manage downloaded resources (automatically download resources)
  • Community notes
  • Fill-in resources
  • What are these features, and how do we see them in action?

    Peter - Hopefully this will help:

    • Manage downloaded resources (automatically download resources) - If you delete your app, a popup will appear asking if you want to redownload previously downloaded books. My experience is that it didn't work perfectly, but it worked pretty well.
    • Community notes - This is directly related to Faithlife. Notes can now be added to a community group. Visit faithlife for more details if you are unfamiliar.
    • Fill-in resources - I believe that he means resources which have blanks to fill in are now "fill-in-able."

    It should have been. I don't know why they were not.

    Let us know if the reinstall works.

    It did!  Seems that it takes a while for the reading plans to appear, but they do eventually.  All good.  

    No sign of any notes yet though!

    I think I remember reading somewhere that notes and highlights aren't supported on the iPhone 3G

    Hi Graham

    You're right.  It was made quite clear with v2 that notes and highlights wouldn't be supported on 3G.  But with v3, there is an option to create notes, and one can create notes, and community notes appear at Faithlife.com and Logos 4.  However, private notes go nowhere it seems.  

    I guess we'll need a response from Logos HQ to give a clear answer.

    Richard - I am confused what you are asking. Can you try again? Screen shots would be nice. Wink Also, can you clarify what device(s) you are using?

    Nicely done Logos.  Though it wasn't obvious where to find reading plans, etc to start, but worked it out only because I'd been using the Faithlife app.  Thanks for the improvements to notes accessibility.

    Same way you could split the screen with the 2.x builds… Find the semi-circle and drag.

    EDIT: Here is a screen shot. Notice the semi-circle button in the middle right. You will find this either in the top or bottom right. Hold & drag or double click.

    Speaking of split screens, I love using the Text comparison tool, the word study and passage guides on a split screen.  As the younger generation says, the whole setup just rocks!

    I'm using a pre-historic, retro iPhone 3G!

    I guess I wasn't really asking anything here, merely pointing out that notes were not an available feature for 3Gs under v2, but that they have now appeared but are partially working in v3.  

    Here's what I'm doing...

    I find a text I want to make a note on (eg Heb 1:3)

    So I swipe up and select 'Add Note'

     

    I then see this screen.  Notice 'Private' is selected at the top.  I add details to the note, create a new note file, and then  I tap 'Done' (which I am)

     

    Back in the ESV, there is no indication that a note has been attached to Heb 1:3

    Although the note is recorded in the Note file I created under documents

     

    Neither does the note appear in the ESV in Logos 4 (or under 'File' for that matter)

     

    However, it is different when I create a 'Community' note - note appears in Logos 4 and at Faithlife.com, but there is still no note marker in the ESV in iOS app.

    Hope that makes things a little clearer.  As I said in an earlier post, I suspect that notes aren't really meant to function fully on the iPhone 3G even though the option to create notes is now available.

    Someone mentioned you can now have the Notes window appear as one of the split screens on the iPad... Is this true?  If so, how do you do that?

    Hi Peter

    PL:

    Yes, it is true - and really useful.

    • Have focus set on the part of the screen where you want the notes to appear
    • go back to the home screen (three-finger downswipe will do this) and navigate to the Documents pane in the right-hand quartile of the screen
    • find the notes file you want and press it
    • it will appear in the split screen area selected

    Just one thing which I - and some others - think could be improved is that any individual note only fills half of the panel it is in, It would be helpful if it were a full-panel display

    Hope this helps

    Graham

    It does. Smile

    I think that you are probably right. I wonder if it was an oversight and that Logos needs to turn this feature off for older phones...

    You don't have to go to the home screen if you open up the sidebar by tapping the book icon in the upper left corner.  Documents is one of the sections you can swipe to (4th page).  It also gives you the darkened pane that indicates the document or resource will appear in the other pane.  Tapping the inactive pane will make it active.  Note that this is on iPad.
