Someone else has reported this already, but in a recent update (6.1 or 6.2 beta?) displaying the Search Results became significantly slower. Logos reports right away that it has finished the search in just seconds, but then you have to wait another few seconds for the results to get displayed.

Unfortunately I cannot find that other thread to append this to. I've searched and searched (using Google). If anyone knows some better keywords to use to find it, please post a link to it here.

Anyway, it was bad enough as it was. But I've also realized that it essentially hangs Logos while you're waiting for the results to be displayed. Normally when one tab is taking a while to update, you can at least go do something else in Logos because of the multi-threaded nature of the program. But now when you're waiting for Search Results, the program goes into "Not Responding" mode and you can't even click on menus to drop them down or anything. It's very frustrating.

Please address this as soon as possible.

This is on Windows.

The person who reported this before posted a screencast, I think, but here's another:

Hi Rosie,

I think this is the other thread you're looking for: https://community.logos.com/forums/t/101889.aspx

I wonder how widespread this problem is.  Does everyone on Windows experience this delay in displaying search results?  Or is it only people with a certain configuration?  Or a certain size of library?

The reason I ask is that if everyone on Windows is experiencing this delay, why aren't more people mentioning it in the forums?  It's such an oft-used part of Logos, that I would expect many people to be frustrated by it.

Just curious...

Interesting question

Jason Van Vliet:

I'm also running on Windows and don't really see the problem.

I estimate that displaying the results takes about the same amount of time as the search is reported as taking.

So if I run a search which reports that it takes 1.5 seconds then it takes another 1.5 seconds to display the first screen of those results

Thanks, Jason. That was indeed it. I'll go post a link there back to this thread.
