I had created a PB which I'd set the author of to "Forsyth, P.T."

I switched to my Library (which was already open in a floating window) and typed author:"p. t. forsyth"

I realized that all the Logos edition books by him in my library are listed under "Forsyth, Peter Taylor".

So I went back to my PB tab and changed the author of that PB to "Forsyth, Peter Taylor" and clicked "Build book" to rebuild it.

While that was still building, I switched back to my Library.

I observed it flashing like crazy. See video:

Did the problem re-occur after restarting Logos, and are all your resources present (the number that Library reports as All)?

I don' think I got the steps quite right, and I can't reproduce it now. It had something to do with sorting by author, and clicking to expand the ones by Peter Taylor Forsyth as well.

Sorry about the lame bug report. If I ever notice this again, I'll report it in more detail.

Rosie, I suspect that you fell victim to a ghostly bug that Philana is aware of. It has to do with some field in the display being exactly the wrong size so that it gets caught in a loop of resizing for the changed text which results in the page repainting constantly and so quickly that you can't even really see what is happening.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."
