  • Added a button to the Search Panel toolbar to create a new Visual Filter document from the search
  • Added “Adjust plan” feature to reading plans. If you are behind, you can right-click on a day and select “Adjust plan from here”, which pushes everything back so that you start reading on that day.

  • Each unique term in a search query is now highlighted with a different color
  • Input boxes will try to provide valid Bible reference ranges instead of doing nothing (e.g. “mt 28:18-22” will parse to Mt 28:18-20)
  • User-defined collections now have their own section (separate from Series) in Search range picker
  • Implicit Series are now included as options in the Cited By panel menu (disabled by default)
  • Added Alt+C keyboard shortcut to open/close home page Customize drop-down menu

Bug Fixes

Bradley Grainger:

How to Join the Beta

Run the special beta installer here: http://downloads.logos.com/LBS4/InstallerBeta/Logos4Setup.exe

Bradley, when I run this I get the message: "Logos Bible Software is up-to-date" Nothing else seems to happen and L4 reports 4.0a SR-2 for version number.

EDIT: Mine is already installing too now.

BTW, the update toolbar for L3 worked very, very fast for all my notes. I wonder what it actually did.

Does this install cause a complete re-index?I'm away for a few days and only have my netbook with me. I never index with this computer.

Based on the time estimates I am seeing, it isn't a complete index

 

From the notes: Added Bibles-only search index

Update was smooth. Imports all seemed to go quickly. No problems at this time. It is indexing now with about 59 minutes left.

First glance at notes importing isn't very pleasing.

Outlining is lost.

The old note title becomes the first line of the note text.

The new note title is the first few lines of the location of the note.  If I had wanted to highlight that text, I would have added the note to a selection in the first place.

Font changed to Default everywhere, loosing my face and size settings.

Special symbols sometimes render as boxes.

Text color lost.

Spacing is tighter between paragraphs (but I actually prefer that).

Bradley Grainger:
Resources support navigating by data type levels, highlighting, and search results

Thanks for this, but if I have a lot of markup, the arrow button often appears not to work.  I think it's not scrolling the page when the next markup is within ~10 lines from the top (the reference box is updating, but the screen doesn't realign to that verse).  It was very confusing at first.

I don't plan on jumping on the beta until we reach the RC stage, but I have to admit that I really like some of the new features being added. I know a couple are ones that many (including myself) specifically asked for, and there are several that I think will be really nice. I didn't know I wanted them until I saw them! Good work guys! Look forward to seeing how the beta progresses.

Well, that was strange. Windows 7 just blue screened. I have the context menu now that I am booted back up. Thanks Todd

Importing crashes on my computer. I get the "this program stopped working" message from Windows 7. It looks for a solution, does not find any and shut down Logos 4. I restarted the PC but it made no difference.

I get the same thing. Make sure to provide your log file.

Mine also "crashed" during the import of the notes etc. It asked to do the M$ error report.

I re-bootef the PC and all was well - Favorites imported, highlighting available etc.

I'm running XP SP3 etc

My indexing just finished but importing is taking a very, very long time, and synchronization is running continuously. I have 81 note files and I'm watching them come on my files list.Ah, the last one just finished.

The lesson is, don't import notes before indexing finishes, I guess.

Bradley Grainger:
Added Parallel Resource drop-down menu in resource toolbar

This looks pretty good, Bradley. However it seems incomplete at this time.

1. For example, there are no parallel resources for a number of my Greek lexicons (BDAG, ANLEX, LN, EDNT, Newman, TLNT, Lexham, etc). I have it on the TDNT and WSNTDICT but the results there are strange. It lists my collection Greek Lexicons but only six lexicons are listed (no scrolling). I have 18 resources in that collection.

The situation with my Hebrew lexicons is worse. I don't have many of them open, but my enhanced BDB shows parallel resources but just 2 of the 22 in my Hebrew Lexicons collection:

BTW: the way a Hebrew-Greek resource is handled is very nice. Example: NASB Hebrew-Aramaic-Greek Dictionaries which is a single volume:

You might also note that the Hebrew side reports a different set of resources than I got for the enhanced BDB.

I admit I don't know how Logos is generating these parallel resource associations, but if you are using my collections, there is something not working quite as expected, and in some cases not at all.

2. I also have no parallel associations for any of my Bible dictionaries: ABD, NBD, ISBE, Rev, etc.
