I am unable to change my Preferred Bible. It is currently set to NRSV and I cannot change it to ESV. ESV is listed but when I select the check box all that happens is the box shows a check then disappears but NRSV remains the default.

I was able to place the ESV as my favorite by using the Prioritization in the library. However I am still not able to change favorite Bible in the Home page.

 

Thanks in advance.

You change your preferred Bible by setting it in your Priority list - like this. Is that what you mean or are you trying to do something else?

I can confirm this bug in adifferent way. You can't change the default bible in a Bible Word Study. Martin.

When you go to your Library and clickt the upper right "Prioritize" button, do the Bibles come up at the top of your "Prefer these resources" list?

I can confirm this bug in adifferent way. You can't change the default bible in a Bible Word Study. Martin.

There is a minimal set of Bibles to choose from in the "Settings" of the "Hebrew Words" and "Greek Words" section.  Not my favorite, but I suppose it depends on the indexing between Hebrew and Greek and English texts.

There is also the option to do "Textual Searches" in all my preferred Bibles at the bottom section of the Bible Word Study.

I guess we are going to need something more specific as to exactly what the OP is trying to do, as Bibles are used a lot in BWS :-)

In case it's in the Translation section, there is a settings icon that appears when you hover over it, you se the default Bible there. See screen cap:

Thanks, Dominik. Yes, I can choose between different versions, but when I click on one of them, the preferred bible stays there (in my case ESV). It doesn't change to the one I choose. Martin.

Dominick,

I think he's talking about his preferred Bible, not his prioritization list-

 

Is this correct, Garcia?  If so, you have a bug and need to call Logos.

My thanks to the various MVPs. Without them Logos would have died early. They were the only real help available.

I can confirm this bug in L5 SR-4. Click on any of the radio buttons and it just jumps back to what I had already selected as my preferred Bible.

I was able to click more>> and type in a different Bible that didn't appear in the list, and click on that one, and it changed it to that (1890 Darby Bible), but now I'm stuck with that! Ick! I can't change back to my real preferred Bible, nor does my trick of clicking more>> work anymore.

Here's a screencast that demonstrates the problem: http://www.screencast.com/t/7LTgxCI3Keo

Garcia, could you edit your post (click on More beside the post and choose Edit) within the next few hours while it's still possible to do so, and add "BUG: " prefix to the subject line, so the Logos folks will catch this thread as a bug report? Thanks!

Confirmed.

It worked the first time I tried it but not just now, although some persistence with clicking did get a result!

You can you fix it in Prioritize!

I can't reproduce this, but I've filed a bug report for investigation.

Well, after doing what Dave suggested (prioritizing my favorite Bible), I was a happy camper again. I forgot to check back and see what was selected in the Home Page as my preferred Bible. But I just shut down Logos and restarted it, and lo and behold it had restored me to my preferred Bible. I don't want to mess around with it again to try to reproduce it for you with a log file, in case it gets stuck again.

EDIT: Well, OK I did try it, and it is still extremely reproducible. I didn't go so far as to click on more>> this time, so it didn't get stuck on something I didn't want. But here's a log file from a short session where I just brought up the Home page and tried to change my preferred Bible to something else, and it didn't change.

We haven't been able to reproduce this in testing, and since there is a known workaround, we'll be closing this case until we can get more detailed repro steps. (It's possibly related to your existing prioritisations, and I think it's safe to say that anyone who has mastered the Prioritize panel of the Library doesn't need the Home Page tool, which is designed to make it easy for first-time users to set up the most important prioritisation.)

Once I changed the priority of my Bibles, I could then change preferred Bible on the Home Page. Selected between three. As I selected one, it moved to the top of the list and then down as I chose another. Watching the priority list as I changed preferred Bible noticed that the priority list changed to match my selections.
