Batman and David:

I so agree.  I just never open Logos.  I use Biblegateway to look anything up.  And I open a few books.  Too slow, and then stuff jumps around, it's in little stupid boxes too small to read.  You cannot look up Greek or Hebrew words because the search box does not recognize them.

Arggh.  Glad it know that it is not me alone.

What are your computer specifications? That can have a lot to do with the speed. Logos 8 is MUCH faster than L7 in my opinion. I do not wait nearly as long for things.  There have also been people run diagnostics to compare and have verified this is the case on their machine as well.

Can you elaborate on this. A screenshot would help.

Hi David,

What you describe is certainly not normal behavior. Logos will index anytime you do book upgrades. You can pause the indexing at any time if it slows down while using it. You should contact support.

As an update, once I did manual indexing the app is working much better. The slow down I experience is mainly when I start the app but once is up and running it works well. Which tells me that as soon as a replace my current HD with an SSD Logos will rock.

You may want to check on that because I think you may be misunderstanding something.

As I understand it, you never lose what you paid for. When you upgrade, you upgrade the Logos app.

The portfolio that you already own you keep. The NEW portfolio may have additional books and resources. If you choose to upgrade to the new Portfolio you will only be charged for the books you do not have. You will never pay twice for the same books you already have.

You will see a huge difference with a SSD.

Thanks.

I'm not sure who you are responding to here. It's usually a good idea to quote all or the relevant portion of a post you are replying to.

Here is a short screencast in case you are not sure how to do that

Logos 8 claims to be faster.  Is it?  Can you actually find anything with it?  I downloaded basic.  Waiting to restart Logos because it is indexing.  (It said it was 88% indexed but suddenly it is down to only 26%. I think that is all it ever does).



I have to say it is. My old old computer, it took about 6 minutes between start up and ready to use. The old new computer it took about 60 to 90 seconds. After a few months I "baptized" it, and had to get my new new computer. It opens and is ready to usually 20-30 seconds. 

I cant say I've experienced the symptoms you are describing. Not in Logos, anyway. I have had to figure out PDFs from my Dr. that are so small you couldnt read it under a powerful microscope; Indexing issues, Ive not had like that, but, I have had similar with "updating" or "preparing" library. Had to call support. As suggested elsewhere, support may not be a bad idea. You might need to even have to give permission to remotely access your computer (kinda freaky, first couple times but, Logos is more trustworthy than most companies) so, you may want to consider that. Logos support is awesome; they had to fix a Windows issue-- which was cool, because, once again, most companies leave it at "It's not our problem", but, they fixed it. 

Hoping it works for you.

Well, I cannot take a screenshot of the problem because Logos 8 has replaced my logos 7.  I haven't tried to look up Greek words in it yet.  Don't even know where my lexicons are hidden.

Logos 8 visually looks a bit different than Logos 7, which includes Library icon (one way to look at lexicons).
