In the NKJV, in Leviticus 24:11 the word "Lord" should be italicised, but only the initial letter is. This is the case both in the surface text and the reverse interlinear ribbon. I've reporting it here, as well as a typo because I don't know whether it's a rending issue or a tagging issue. I'm assuming rendering, because the same thing happens in verse 16.

I would imagine this has to do with the resource display font not supporting italic small caps (as the 'L' is using a capital letter, not a small cap).  This is true of the default font; is that the font you are using?

The same is true regardless of which default font I used: Logos4, Default or Default Sans Serif. It's also true of Garamond & Times. It could take a long time to find a font that correctly displays the text.

It seems odd to me that not one of the default fonts which Logos chose can correctly display the Bible text.

Yes, you're right, but Dan's right, too. The italic version of the default fonts should support all the characters used in Logos resources, especially Bibles. Perhaps it would be as useful to fall back on a pseudo-italic version (i.e. computing an italic character from the standard character) when a glyph is missing.

Yes, sorry. I agree, which is why I wanted to confirm that you were using a default font. I should have been clearer about that. I'll create a case for the issue to see what can be done.
