about the same height as St. Paul's Cathedral in London!

Love that place!

I don't know if you've found this out but no one has mentioned it that I can see - if you click on a book, it will open it.

Does it open in L4 for you?   Mine insists on trying to open using the Libronix Max Lucado software I have installed (which it then can't find the resources in)

Someone else just asked this same question earlier today on another thread in another context. That is a common problem people have been having after reinstalling Libronix (Logos 3) after having already installed Logos 4. In that case, Logos 3 hijacks the libronixdls hyperlink protocol back again. I'm not sure if that's why you're seeing this problem since it sounds like you had Libronix Max Lucado installed earlier before you installed L4. But the fix should work regardless. To fix it, see the instructions here: http://wiki.logos.com/Hyperlinks#Problem.3a_Libronix_DLS_executes_the_protocol_instead_of_Logos_4

Actually, this works in the iPhone too (tapping on the book cover will open the book in the Logos app) and I find it very cool.  Cool

A big thanks to Mark and Dave for what you have done!

Thanks Rosie,

gave it a shot, but to no avail. I'm tempted to uninstall L3 again, but reluctant as I had a hard time adding new purchase of older resources. 

 

I had L3, then installed L4 - ran out of space to index so I uninstalled L3. Purchased the Lucado Lifeworks but it wouldn't install so used the installer from L3. Now when L3 opens it is very much the Lucado variant of it.

It's probably something we can help you solve without you having to uninstall L3. In the Registry Editor, scroll all the way up to the top/root of your registry, click My Computer, then Ctrl+F search for libronixdls with just Keys checked. Then when you find the first hit, click on the hollow triangles to expand every sub-entry under the libronixdls key, and see if it looks like this:

If not, do you know how to do a screen capture of just that portion and post it here?

Ditto for the status bar the the bottom that shows the full path to that key:

Finally, check the data in the key over on the right hand panel:

Be nitpicky about getting the punctuation and spacing right. Quotes around the full path (especially if it has any spaces in it" followed by a space and then quotes around the %1. No extra spaces in there besides the one between the (quoted) program name and the quoted parameter. Make sure that is all right and pointing to the right path to Logos4.exe on your particular computer.

Now press F3 to find the next occurrence of libronixdls and do the same as above. Do it for each and every occurrence until you hit the end of the registry and don't find anymore.

Note: I've expressed my frustration to Logos that people are having to do this manual fix so frequently, and have asked them to put a check in Logos 4 to make sure the libronixdls protocol is set to point correctly to Logos 4 upon startup.

UPDATE: It is a good idea to keep L3 around for installing older products as you mentioned. You don't need to install the data files for them, just unlock and sync licenses, and then you can use them in L4. Best to get this registry thing fixed properly now and not uninstall L3 only to have to reinstall it again if you need it in the future if you buy another Libronix-based book. It will just mess up the libronixdls protocol again.

Rosie,

you are a blessing thank you.

I hope you indeed did go to bed a little while ago - I had read your comment to another late night poster.

Your post gave me the syntax needed to resolve the issue - I added a space between "....Logos4.exe" %1, but it needed the quote marks around "%1" also.

It seems to be fixed! Thank you Left Hug

Alan Charles Gielczyk:

Mark,

Thanks for this, it is great. I do have one problem, at least with my library. About halfway through all my books stop being "on" the shelves and appear between the shelves. I don't know how you all get your bookshelf to appear in your post so I can't show you unless someone clues me in on how to do that.

Alan, I think I know where your problem is.  Smile  The book height varies with the "font size" while the shelf height is constant.  So if you're using IE, then type alt-v (to invoke "View" from the menu) -> Zoom -> 100%, the books and shelves should align right to the bottom of the page.  At least this seems to be the case for my library.

Mark, this is truly wonderful, and is better than the rotating book cover "slide show" on the home page in the latest beta!  There's something about seeing a shelf of books in front of you that encourages you to calm your spirit, sit down, pick out a book, and start reading and listening to someone who has gone before you.  Thanks for this, and I hope this will become part of Logos 4 itself very soon!

In addition to Rosie's list of small fix requests, may I add one more: For books that don't have a visual cover, could you shrink the font size of the Title and Author so that it will fit inside the "book" as much as possible?

Thanks again, Mark, for all your contributions to the Logos community and the Bible software users community!

Peter

If you want to allow others to see what resources you have in Logos, you can now do so. It's a feature I've added to my Logos 4 Bibliographic Report. The report gives you a URL that you can share with friends so that they can see your library. The page is pretty rather than functional, but I'll consider adding additional functionality if there's demand. This is what mine looks like:

I wanted to do the same thing. Not sure if what I have done is the best way (others please offer better solutions).

Having opened the link in IE, I chose File -> Save As and saved the page using the "Save as type" Webpage, complete (*.htm, *.,html). This created a folder full of the images and a webpage file. Having then double clicked it, it opened again in IE and I bookmarked it for quick access.

Perhaps not the best solution but hopefully helpful until something better is suggested.

You can do a screen capture. Ctrl+PrintScreen copies the image of the entire screen to the clipboard. You can then paste it to your favorite drawing program (MS Paint which comes with Windows will do) and crop out the parts you don't want -- menus, taskbar icons, and the like.

Or if you want to get fancy, SnagIt is a very good commercial screen capture utility that can capture a rectangle on the screen or an entire window or even a scrolling window (web page) -- the entire thing scrolls automatically and gets captured into an image file (e.g., jpg or png). SnagIt is also handy for doing markup -- adding circles and arrows and text boxes and highlighting, etc. It's what many of us use for making instructions for how to do things in Logos. See this post, for example; I used SnagIt for that image: http://community.logos.com/forums/p/15287/116637.aspx#116637

I copied and pasted the path, but my computer says that the path does not exist - and ideas?  I'm probably doing something wrong.  I also searched for any files ending in .db or .p4f. 

This looks like an awesome thing to do so I hope you can help!  Thanks.

Yes, the shelf doesn't view correctly in Firefox. It seems this is due to a bug in Firefox that causes tiling problem after several thousand pixels. If you notice, once the bug is triggered, when you scroll slowly back up shelves which previously aligned properly no longer do so. You have to go right back to the top of the document to 'reset' it.  I'll experiment with different sizes of shelf graphic to see if I can work around this - but not this week as I'm about to go to New Word Alive.

How many resources do you have? How many show per shelf?

Mark-

I found what I needed.  I right-clicked on the desktop L4 icon, copied the target link, copied it into your link, and presto, I have my bookshelf!!  Thanks for this, and all the great videos you produce - keep up the good work - guys like me count on it.  Thanks again.

Anthony

forgive what may be a silly question, but can I use this bookshelf for my own personal use in Logos4?
