Maybe I am missing something, but, there seems to be no keyboard (arrow key) scrolling in a search results list. Arrow key scrolling seems to work in other Logos resources, but not in search results. To me, it is very inefficient to have to switch from the keyboard to the mouse just to scroll though a results list. I use the up and down arrow keys to scroll though google search results in my browser. Why doesn't Logos do this? Or is there any plans to include this functionality in the future. Thanks for the help!

Using Logos 4.2a SR-5, can replicate.  Noticed can scroll search results using scroll wheel or finger gestures on Magic Mouse.

Logos developers are working on feature parity along with performance optimization and adding some new features for Mac & PC.  Personally Thankful for immense Logos 4 Mac improvements over past year and a half Big Smile

Anticipating Feature Parity list to shrink with future Logos 4 Mac stable releases.  Logos 4.3 Beta 2 has fixes for couple items.

Thanks for the answer. It's good to see that it is on the future todo list. Meanwhile I will have to use my mouse;  using the scroll wheel definitely is a little easier than point and click

Also not in note files and passage lists.

Logos 4.5b Beta 5 can use arrow keys to scroll in passage lists albeit with couple beeps for every verse.

Using Logos 4.6a Beta 4 on OS X 10.8.2, can replicate arrow keys not working to scroll search result list.  Using a Magic TrackPad to scroll is quick.

Using Logos 4.6a SR-1 on OS X 10.8.2, was able to scroll Basic search results using keyboard arrow keys.

Edit: using Logos 4.6a SR-1 on Windows 7, verified Bible Search results for verses on Windows can be scrolled using arrow keys while OS X 10.8.2 cannot scroll Bible resutls (the arrow keys are limited to search term focus).

  • PC Bible Search can scroll verse results using arrow keys while Mac cannot

Thanks for the response - hopefully we will get some increased keyboard love in the future!

Mike / KS4J ... after the message on search results scrolling, I had to go and check (I'm on Windows). Sure enough, works great. I didn't really believe it since just recently I was battling the arrow keys in search-results.  Bob had indeed said it'd be fixed (back when neither worked).

But if you go to Compare Text (in Windows), it's interesting; who knows but maybe Mac might be ahead there. If I click on the Bible text, the arrow keys don't work. But if I click in the far margins, then they work great. So I assume they're only picking up the keydown/up event from the background area (at least on my Logos4).

Of course the close/open TOC rollups using the left/right arrows is still pretty iffy in Logos4 (actually I can't remember it working at all). In Libronix it's very efficient, moving in and out of a large TOC looking for something.

Still not working.

Used arrow keys in Logos 5.1a RC 3 on OS X 10.8.4 to scroll Grid results in Bible Search.  However, arrow keys were followed by alert sounds when trying to scroll Verses, Aligned, and Analysis results so feature parity issue remains.

Logos 5.1a RC 3 on OS X 10.8.4 and Windows 7 allow arrow key scrolling within Note content.
