Installed w/o a problem. Like the new information pane settings. Impressive list of quashed bugs too!

Hmmm, in the NIV or God's Word translation, when clicking on an English word (e.g. the word "last" in NIV Heb 1:2), the Info panel gives me a few words from the Apologetics Study Bible.  Does that make sense, or is that a bug?  Here are my prioritized resource list:

I think the problems with truncated footnotes are better, but the message that popped up about HCSB on the cursed iphone (did I say that out loud?) was truncated and had no scroll bar.

Info settings are great.  THANKS.

If I am seeing this right, it doesn't search for Parallel resources until you click the button.  That's a big improvement IMHO.  Beta 6 seems quicker.

I am still experiencing about a 5 second lag between clicking the highlight and having it actually show up on the text.  It's better than before, though, so I'm okay with that for now.

Typing notes used to be maddening in beta 5.  There was 2-3 sec lag between my typing and the letters appearing on the screen (I'm too bad a typist for that).  Now it's instantaneous. I suspected it was due to the CPU maxing out for other reasons.  Either way, it's good now.  THANKS for that one too.

Scrolling still hesitates a bit for some reaoson.  (ever since beta 4).  I'll post more on that tomorrow after I've done some more testing, etc.  It may also be smoother than before, but I couldn't tell yet.  I'll know more after my study time tomorrow.

Overall, I'm thrilled with the improvements. Can't wait for the next update.  Big Smile

It makes sense! It is indexed for English headwords which (real) commentaries are NOT, and "last" is one of its entries.

going against wisdom here and wanting to beta on my primary laptop.  i can still, right, or did I need to do it on Beta one.  This would NOT be a fresh install, but over my current L4.  Is it possible that way?

Dan,

If I understand you correctly you want to install the current beta over your previous L4 installation (non-beta).  I did so with the release of beta 4 and it worked like a champ.  I had no problems with the install.

Thanks for the improvements to Parallel Resource sets and fixing the bugs in index merging (that could cause the Grid to crash, text to be truncated in Verses view, and verse counts to be incorrect). Proof of verse counts will have to wait until I re-index a bible.

I have confirmed that Word Study Bible:KJV is now included in Bible search results.

The Information tool's panel Settings are very useful.

> Added a resource description pop-up to resource hyperlinks in the Commentaries and Cross References sections

Thank you! I'd asked for this. Love it!  (This is in Passage Guides, for you others reading this.)

And thanks for the bug fixes. I've marked a couple of my reported bugs in the wiki as fixed now. Others don't seem to have been attended to for many beta versions. Some still even show as "pending" when they are easily reproducible. What's the process/timeline for someone checking these out and marking them as "confirmed"?

One bobble after the install but that seems to have cleared up after a re-boot. No errors on the log, so it isn't attached.

Speed is greatly improved and CPU usage is way way down most of the time. The parallel resource icons pop up much more quickly and it doesn't take long to open the lists the first time (almost instantaneous after  the first time (after they are first generated)). This is good news after the experience I had in Beta 5. Yes

Though I don't use it often and it is slow to generate, it is nice to be able to customize the Information Panel. Good feature.

Thanks Dave.  I don't fully understand your answer, but I added some dictionaries in my prioritized list ahead of the commentaries, and this "fixed" the problem.

That's what you have to do otherwise you get something unexpected like Apologetics. If you removed Apologetics you'd get a dictionary that Logos thinks is best!

A commentary is supposed to give you something based on bible references only whilst a dictionary is supposed to give you something about words. Apologetics gives you both.
