Some of you long-time Logos users will remember the Ephesians 4 CD. Most of my E4 resources are in Logos4, by my "Larger Catechism of the Westminster Standards" is not. That is, it doesn't show in my library. Yet if I type its resource ID into the command bar "LLS:15.0.3" it magically popus up. And before anyone asks, it's not in my hidden resources list. Can anyone else confirm?

I wonder whether Logos4 has automatically hidden it as it knows I have a similar resource from them? Strange if so, as this doesn't happen with many other 'duplicate' resources.

Same here. Logos LCWS shows up but not the E4. When I type in LLS:15.0.3 in the Command Box the E4 version opens up. I do not think Logos would purposely do this though.

I also have a problem with some of my E4 books. I'm missing some of them. They are just not in the resources folder of L4. I have them in my L3 resources folder though. Even if I do a scan command it doesn't pick them up. And yes, my license is synchronized.

I have it with some of my galaxie software books also. Most of them are in L4, but during scanning it just skips some of them.

Henry, what is it that you're missing? I'm wondering if I'm missing them too.

I think I am missing some, but I will have to check when I am at home.  Based on my experience during the Windows Beta process, what Logos needs is a list of all missing books so they can then check out why they are not working properly.  I suggest we all check, and post a full list here on this thread.

Ok. A small correction here. Some of my E4 resources are missing in L3f, but they are available in L3e on my laptop. Both have the same resources in their folders. In L4 they are also in the resources folder, but I can't see them in my librayr. Typing the ID in the command box did open the book.

Mark, how do I find the resource ID's of the books that I can't find in my library. I know for sure I'm missing the matthew henry commentaries also and some bibles. Probably the ASV included. These are the E4 ones.

The other problem with resources is, I have some others that are in my L3 folder, but even if I scan it, it doesn't copy over to L4. I think most of them are the Bill Bright audio transcript stuff. I do have normal access to them in L3. These are some that are also missing:

Glossary of the Morphological Terms in the Aramaic Inscriptions

Glossary of the Morphological Terms in the Hebrew and Canaanite Inscriptions

The Original Word Teaching Series I : Introduction to New Testament Greek

 

And of course my Greek Audio New Testament is also missing.

If you can open the resource in Logos3, you can choose "Copy Location to Clipboard" from the Favorites menu. This location can be pasted directly into L4's command box. If the resource is available in Logos4, it will show up in the resulting pop-up menu.

It's very interesting that some resources are available in 3.0e but not 3.0f. After posting, I noticed that my e4 resource wasn't available in 3.0f, though I don't have a copy of 3.0e to test. I also have never purchased any of your missing resources, unfortunately.

I am not talking about E4, my problem is more serious. I DONOT HAVE ANY BOOKS FROM LOGOS 4 PLATINUM DOWNLOADED, i think. I haven't checked 1.200 books. But so far, I only got, "resources missing' messages all the time.

Interesting... I opened up 3.0e and noted down the resource id's of the missing books. Tried them all in L4 AND L3.0f and they all opened up! I have about 40 books that needs to be opened up this way.

I'm going to post the list here in a while.

Now I need to check the others that ARE visible in 3.0f but invisible in L4

Hi, Henry,

I thought my Audio Greek New Testament was missing, too, because I couldn't get ctrl+R or "Read Aloud" to work with my NA27XXVII (in Stuttgart Electronic Study Bible). Swapping emails with Tech Support led me to try NA27 with Logos Morphology, and BINGO! it works fine. Good luck (now THERE"S a theologically improper good wishBig Smile),

Some books produced by third parties have consistently poor metadata that interferes with features in the program. In other cases, they duplicate other books but with less functionality. We've built a list of books that aren't presented by default, but can be opened if you have a note or hard link to them. Ideally they should only be hidden if they are replaced by a different, better edition. If that's not the case, let us know which ones have been over-zealously restricted.

Thanks for posting that, Steve,

I had wondered about it but hadn't had time to mess with it.

Thanks Bob, that makes sense.

Henry: Most of these books look to me if they fall into the category that Bob mentions above. But I guess they should only be hidden if you have the replacement 'official' resource. If you don't, perhaps you should report it as a bug.

Henry, I can open all of the E4 ones you listed with the title and author information.  Here is the only book that I cannot open

Not sure why this is different for us.

Bob, is thee any chance that the E4 books will get retagged for L4?  I am most interested in their Commentaries which I really enjoy.  Any hope?

Hmm. I can open the Oxford Bible Commentary just fine over here.

Do you have other versions of the E4 books that I listed? It seems I can't open those third party books if I have a Logos replacement for it. For all those books that I listed, I have a Logos version of it in my library.

I am missing some books from Bill Bright. It seems like all the books that I have in L3 that ends with (audio transcript). Maybe about 50 of them. And also maybe about 10 others. When I say missing, I mean they are not copied over into the L4 resources folder.

These are the books that I'm completely missing in L4. I have no idea any more from where I got them. I was searching for the discs, but I can't find them at the moment.

It's 62 books that are missing. I don't mind it just yet, because I still have access to them in L3. But it would be nice if I could eventually access them in L4.

It would be a whole different matter if for example I replaced my bookshelves with a new one and discovered that I was missing 62 hard copy books.Big Smile

Ok I just found one of those discs. Some of the missing books come from the Wallbuilders library. Did a scan on it but it still didn't pick up the books.
