I am running 4.5a SR-1. The program randomly opens to a very small size in the lower left of my screen. When I press the expand button (green +) the program goes to full screen. This does not happen all of the time. Sometimes the program opens normally to full screen. I can't find any consistent explanation for the small size.

Soli Deo Gloria,

Randy

I can confirm similar behaviour on my machine, I believe it was over a week ago that it last happened to me, but I do not know it's cause. Although I often have to force quit my Logos so I always assumed some type of saved window preference file got  messed up during it's force quit.

Have experienced shrunken size using Logos 4.5b Beta 5 => Bug: Logos 4.5b Beta 5 launch to small Home Page window

Personally puzzled.

Perhaps this action is not so random. I have another Bible software program and after I use that program, the next time I open Logos it opens in the "shrunken" state.

Soli Deo Gloria,

I've experienced this issue too two or three times this past week.

I was wrong. This does seem to be random after all. I hope it addressed very soon.

I think this feature is "Normal Operating Procedure" for Logos on Macs.

Mine does it "most of the time" , thus I am shocked when it opens like "normal" programs.

Like the constant crashes, slowness, locking up and the terrible/horrible/dysfunctional scrolling, I believe this is just part of the way Logos for Mac loads at times.

There are also times it does not seem to be loading the page, but if one just waits a bit, It finally loads.

I keep all things to a min. in Logos, no guides loaded until I need them and then close asap- this seems to help most things quite a bit.

Loading "is" more consistant if one remembers to close the "guides" before shutting down.

I have gotten use to this, thought it was normal.

Been seeing this over period of several Beta's.

Always have to expand from lower left hand corner.

Wondering if have called Logos Mac Support ? so Logos can see your system in use with desktop sharing.

Puzzling.

Oh Yes KS4J , been there, done that.

Answer: We don't know, will report it.

They don't know how to fix:

Problems with program loading.

Problems scrolling with more than one guide open. ( almost impossible)

Program slower than Molasses in the winter.

It's all been reported to the developers-sigh.

If I didn't "need" the resources, I would uninstall the whole thing in a heartbeat.

Blessings.

I can report that I have seen this behavior as well.

Can anyone reproduce the behavior? I must admit I've seen the behavior, but haven't been able to reproduce it. If anyone can do so, I'd like to speak with them offline, so we can get to the bottom of this.

Tommy - It has happened to me, but too random. I cannot reproduce it.

For me it seems to happen maybe 3-4 times a year. Far too seldom to bother about, when there's hundreds of bugs that affect me all the time. But I'll try to remember to get the logs if it happens again.

It seems to happen to me after an update. Once I reset the size of the window it will be ok until the next update.

Tommy: It's pretty consistent for me.

Is that what you needed to know?

Have reported it to tech support in the past.

I would say it does it two out of every three start up's.

Hope this helps.

This problem has not been fixed with the latest update (4.5b 4.52.0.2176). The first time I opened the program after the download it opened in the lower left of the screen in shrunken form. Maybe next version?

Soli Deo Gloria,

Randy

Wonder if shrunken size opening can be repeated ? e.g. does returning to layout before closing, then after quit and open, shrunken size again ?
