There appear to be several inconsistencies or bugs. When there are still prayers for that day the "Edit" selection is on the left directly under the last prayer. When all prayers are finished for that day the "Edit" selection moves to the bottom right of the Prayer list box. I would prefer to always see the "Edit" selection on the bottom right so it's always in the same places.

Another glitch I noticed is that when the Prayer lists have not been opened and you select "Edit" the Home Screen moves to the top out of the screen and shows you the working area (for a lack of better terms as I'm not familiar with the correct terminology for Logos yet). If you select the home button and go back to the home screen with the prayer lists still open then selecting Edit does nothing as the Prayer List is already open. I would like to see it take me back to the working area with the Prayer List.

Hope you understand my explination.

God Bless

Stephen

I reproduced this, but the lack of response is only for the "Edit" button under a list that has been checked out (i.e., a list that has the message "Prayer are done for today.").  The "Edit" button remains active if the prayer requests have not been checked out.

... also the Home button (though it does not change (and even though I have suggested it should)) 

can be used as a 'toggle switch' between the home page and work spaces.

PS This is not documented, as far as I know - so may just be the result of some unintended code.

Mike and Stephen, 

Yes, it must be a bug since the Logos4 PC version works well regardless of the completion status of the prayer lists.

We may not have documented this specifically in the Mac product, but I'm pretty sure that it's explained in the videos for the Windows product. The behavior is expected and intended.

David,

There is a difference in behavior between the Mac and Windows versions dealing with accessing the Edit pages for the Prayer lists, but it is not related to the completion status of the prayer list as I had incorrectly indicated before.  I did more testing and this is what I find (I'll try to explain the difference properly).   

With two prayer lists (say List A and List B), if you press Edit for List A you get the proper Edit page.  You leave open the Edit page and go Home, you get the Home Page.  Now try to press the Edit page of List A and nothing happens.  You press Edit for List B and you get the Edit pages for both Lists.  If you leave them both open and press Home, you get the Home Page.  If you now press either Edit  for the List A or B you get the Edit Pages.  If you close List B (or List A) and go to the Home page you will not be able to get the Edit page if you press the Edit button for the List that was left open, but if both Edit pages are left open (or closed) then there is no problem getting the Edit pages back.

This is not the case for the WIndows application.  Going between the Edit pages for the prayer lists is not affected by leaving either or both pages open or closed and going to the Home page.

The difference shows with two prayer lists, I don't know how it works with more lists or with a single list.

Another difference may have to do with automatically getting the Home page when all windows are closed. That is the case for the Windows app but the Mac app will not get the Home page automatically. This might be intentional though.

Fernando:

The bug here appears to be that the home page doesn't go away if the actions you take don't actually open new panels (even when the home page is being shown, the panels you had open are still considered to be open). I'll get this entered in our bug database.

Stephen,

Thanks.  Next time I'll put it in Spanish and it will be even clearer... Smile (just joking)

Blessings,  

Fernando
