Resources are supposed to open in the font I have set in Preferences, right? So why does the one on the left use another font than the one I opened to the right for comparison?

Anyone who can confirm? logosres:lionintot;ref=Page.p_57;off=14842

Yep. I can confirm. It seems like resources have a typeface (mind) of their own.

Some resources use a variety of typefaces for different sections in the book, as Logos will try to replicate the font stylings of the print version.  In those cases, the font selection will not affect all of the text in a resource.  The one in question (Drane's Introducing the Old Testament) uses a sans-serif font for sidebar items, as can be seen from this screenshot from Amazon's preview:

Unfortunately, Logos can't reproduce the peculiar flow of the book, so it just looks like the fonts are a random mixture in Logos.  Check it out on Amazon--it's almost like half the book exists in "sidebars".  Seems hard to read:

Appears Logos resource has "gaps" around "sidebar" text, which uses a different font (albeit without columns as shown in Amazon preview):

Ah! That certainly explains it.

Yet, Logos should find a way to make this more obvious, both in the text and the TOC. Perhaps with wider margins in the text? As for the TOC:

The first two subheadings here are normal chapters; the latter four are 'sidebar items'. There should be something to distinguish them, like a • or something before the latter. Or two different fonts in the TOC as well. Or a 'Special Articles' section at the end instead, like in the Contents.

It sure does. I started reading by clicking on one of the latter four, hence my confusion. I never looked at the rest of the book.

Now that I do, however, I find a couple of other problems as well:

a) Either Logos' adaptation of the layout interferes with the page numbering, or the tagging is sloppily done. I found a picture on Amazon I wanted to look at, but when I tried to go to page 33 in Logos I couldn't. Turns out p 31 is endlessly long and the next one is p 36.

b) This is one error I've never seen before:

Or, rather, I've seen it many times in printed books, but not in an electronic one. Smile

Using Logos 4.5b Beta 7 on Mac OS X 10.6.8, was able to replicate "paper" fold briefly in some sidebar text (after a few seconds, last line became unfolded):

Also noticed Psalms 151 was a bolder and bigger in this sidebar, which remained after "paper" fold disappeared.

Scrolling down into another sidebar, encountered another "paper" fold for several seconds:

Confirmed.

Another resource with missing page numbers was just reported in Bug: The Lord's Prayer Through North African Eyes. It doesn't look to me to be the same issue, but since I may well be wrong, I figured it would be a good idea to link them together anyway.

Using Logos 4.5b (4.52.0.2176), have been unable to replicate "paper" folding.

I was able to reproduce the "paper fold" issue on 4.5c Beta on Mac, and have passed this issue on to development.

I have also communicated the lack of tagging and extra-large font for the Psalm 151 reference. Thank you.

Confirmed Logos 4.5c Beta 2 has fix for "paper fold" issue"

Highlighting Psalms 151, then right click, followed by report typo looks a bit strange:
