With Logos 4 and 5, when I left click my mouse in the field of a translation panel, the prior verse reference would be highlighted entirely, ready for me to type whatever new reference I want to take a look at.  With Logos 6, when I click in the same field, it does NOT highlight the entire prior entry - it just puts the vertical cursor in the text of the reference, leaving it for me to manually highlight the entire field, or manually backspace through the prior reference and then begin typing my new reference.  Yes, I can highlight the entire field by clicking the mouse 3 times, which highlights the entire field - but 1 click beats 3 clicks any day, especially when I'm going to repeat that process dozens and dozens of times in a day.  Does anyone know how I can "re-instate" that "1 click - full field highlight" feature in v6?  For whatever reason, that "1 click - full field highlight" feature works beautifully in a standard concordance search panel, but all other resources (like commentaries, dictionaries, all translation panels, etc.) have lost that simple and convenient feature.

I think this is the same issue as reported and discussed at https://community.logos.com/forums/t/97189.aspx 

If so it has been flagged as a bug but I don't know whether the Faithlife team.see it that waySmile

Thank you, Graham - I didn't find it in my search, but lo and behold, there it is.  

As one post indicated, it is definitely a regression in efficiency, i.e. a bug.  Otherwise, why would some people experience it and others not experience it.  So what is the most effective way for me/others to express to the Faithlife team our sincere desire to see the reinstatement of the single-click highlight?

Apexite:

I would suggest changing the title of your thread to start with "BUG" - that way they are more likely to see it.

You can do this using the "More" button - then choose the "Edit" option.

This is only available for about 10 hours after the post.

Hello Apexite,

Thank you for reporting this. I apologize for the inconvenience. This appears to be a bug in our current release for Mac. We're filing a report with the development team and they will look into it as soon as possible. It should hopefully be resolved soon, in an update.

Mike
