We’re preparing to make a security update to our servers to protect your data and comply with current regulations regarding Transport Layer Security (TLS). It’s important for you to update your Logos software to ensure full functionality after we make this server update.

How to update Logos

When you are running the Logos 7 desktop app, just type “update now” (without quotes) into the command bar. Be sure you are connected to the internet. The update will install for you. 

What happens if I don’t update?

After we make these changes, some Logos users who have not updated to Logos version 7.18 SR-1 or newer may experience limited software functionality, depending on their operating system and update settings.

To maintain the full functionality of your Logos software and ensure your security, it’s important for you to update to the most recent version of Logos 7. Learn more about manually updating Logos 7.

How to turn on automatic updates

To continue to receive important security updates automatically, ensure automatic updates are turned on. 

Click Tools > Program Settings. Scroll down to the Internet section and ensure that both Use Internet and Automatically Download Updates are set to Yes.

For those who are curious according to the FAQs this is only a concern if you are below Logos version 7.18 SR-1 (7.18.0.0020).

Accordingly, I updated from Logos 6 to Logos 7. Now my favourite NASB verse by verse translation is showing word at a time with Hebrew translation and Strong's number below each word. The display is very verbose, not easy to read. I have hunted around the Logos settings and Googled around the web, and cannot see how to restore the basic view of the NASB (my NIV, GNB Bibles seem unaffected, as is the NASB paragraph version).

Are you saying that you've gotten the inline interlinear when that isn't what you want? Make sure (1) is not checked.

MJ is showing an image from Logos 8, not Logos 7.

I did the update to Logos 7. Now the Dead Sea Scrolls does not work. 

For example, if I go to Ps 22:16, it says "There are no results for this reference. Please try a different reference.", but there are DSS fragments for this verse that used to display until I did this upgrade.

It does work for Isaiah refs, but looks like nothing else.

That sounds a bit like a prioritization issue ... can you post a picture of your top Bibles?

I'm not exactly sure what problem you're describing. Can you post a screenshot of the problem (by using the paperclip icon in the post editor)?

How do I get a screenshot of my top Bibles?

If I click on "Biblical Dead Sea Scrolls" in the Text Comparison window, it shows a list of top Bibles, but it disappears when I click anywhere else to try to capture the screen.

What screenshot software are you using?

PicPick - for example - supports what you are trying to do

This is what I see:

And I see essentially the same response to the whole book of Psalms.

Steven D. Miller:

This is what I see:

The first of your selected resources needs to contain the reference. It looks like you've selected a collection or series, and you don't really have control over which resource is considered first. I recommend adding an additional resource first in your list of resources that covers the entire range of references you are interested in. Then this should work correctly.

Thanks MJ Smith - I was clicking around the buttons and found this option - "inline interlinear" did no mean much to me, but it resolved the problem

Thanks Graham! I was using "Snipping Tool", but I downloaded PicPic like you said, and it works much better:

Thanks Andrew, but I do not know what you mean.

I just use Logos for the Dead Sea Scrolls. 

I mostly use BibleWorks.

I never had to do that before. I just typed a reference, and then chose Biblical Dead Sea Scrolls.

But whatever it takes I'll do it, but I don't know what you mean by resources.

Steven D. Miller:
Thanks Andrew, but I do not know what you mean.

What Andrew is saying is that the "Biblical Dead Sea Scrolls" you have selected is a combination of a number of documents and there is no control over which is tried first in the tool.

So it is possible - for example - that 11Q11 is being selected and with no matching reference you are getting the results you see.

He is suggesting that you put another resource (book) before if which will match and then it will work. So in the Text Comparison Tool add another (Hebrew) Bible such as the LHB (or other from your library)

This will give you something like this

with the LHB "after" the DSS which isn't what you want!

Drag the LHB upwards so it as at the top and then you will get results for the DSS

However, if you just want to look at the DSS texts there is no need to use the Text Comparison Tool at all.

Open the "Biblical Dead Sea Scrolls: Bible Reference Index"

Then select the passage you are interested in, click the particular fragment you want to look at and the text will open

Does this help at all?

Thanks very much Graham and Andrew.

That fixed my problem and gave me a better way to examine the DSS.

That first screen, where you show the resources within the DSS - how did you bring that up?
