While Logos is open, and I'm working in other applications, dialog boxes from Logos popup over the active application. 

 

There are no doubt lots of bugs in the Mac Logos app, but this one is the most annoying! Anyone have a fix?

I also experience this almost daily. Is this a known issue that is just difficult to fix, or is this new to the devs?

It's been there for more than two years. They always believe it's fixed, and we always tell them it's not.

I have never experienced this but then I always open L4Mac in its own workspace using Spaces.

I can confirm this behaviour.

Every time I open Logos on my Mac, then switch to another application while it boots up, a hover over pop-up box from my Logos home screen covers part of my active application when Logos nears boot up completion. I then need to switch to Logos, clear the pop-up box, then resume what I was doing in the other application. Nothing else seems to make it go away!

EDIT - This is what I typically see when I click to start Logos and then switch to another application.  The Logos pop-up window intrudes over the other application's pane:

For those of you that are seeing this bug: 

What operating system are you running?

Do you have specific reproduction steps that always cause this issue?

I am running 10.8.2; I have seen it, however, on 10.7 builds. It happens more often on my iMac, which sometimes has a secondary monitor attached. I vaguely remember someone thinking that might have had something to do with it.

I have experienced this continually too i always just make sure logos is hidden as i go to another app. I am using 10.7.5 and the latest beta. Which seems to have stopped the problem for me.

10.6.8

Brisa Calderon:

Except for one or two cases long ago that have been fixed, it has always seemed very random to me. 

That said, it's been many many months now since I saw a Logos popup on top of another program. Even within Logos, the 'sticky' ones have become much rarer, though I did catch this a month ago (I think I managed to get rid of it without restarting, eventually):

But most of the time now, it's 'just' normal popups that take several seconds more than they should to disappear. Better than having to restart, but it does waste time to have to sit waiting for them.

By this time, though, my absolutely worst popup annoyance is the Library popups. Please please please change it so that only the book covers give popups upon hovering. It's virtually impossible to work in the Library. There's always a popup on top of what you want to read.

Number two would be that note icon popups don't behave like footnote number popups.

Number three would be the fact that you can't drag in the lower right corner to resize, combined with the fact that some popups show up so long that the bottom is below the screen and can't be read.

Hi Brisa,

I'm running OS 10.8.2.

I DO have multiple (2) screens running (a 23" Cinema Display and 15" Retina Laptop Display). This seems to happen when I initially open Logos and switch to another application as it loads. Many times this happens when I see that I have updates. I switch so as to maximize my time, then all of a sudden I have a descriptive popup.

I was continually experiencing this on my iMac until I starting using Logos on its own workspace and I haven't experienced the issues since.

I just had another one:

This time I know what I did just before: I closed all. By the look of things, that's probably what I did last time as well. The interesting thing is that I didn't know I had a popup open. When I took the hand off the mouse in order to do an Opt-Cmd-W, I must have accidentally put and left the cursor on top of the tab or the shortcut for UBS4 (which was open at the time), thereby making a popup appear a split second before or after the various panels closed. I'm guessing that once the Close All command has been invoked, there is no more code available to close popups, so they just remain. Of course, there shouldn't be any popups at that stage, but it seems that the slower UI sometimes doesn't display them until it's too late for the faster engine behind it.

I'm also guessing this is essentially the cause for the other versions of the bug earlier in the thread as well. The cursor happens to hover over something that doesn't have time to display a popup until the OS has already started switching programs, and once it has, there is no Logos code to dismiss the popup, so it just stays there.

Does that sound plausible to those of you who know programming, or am I way out in the blue?

(This particular popup went away when I dragged the Library icon to cover the whole screen.)

I have now confirmed that this is repeatable: I deliberately put the cursor on top of the Lectionary tab just before hitting Opt-Cmd-W, and got a screen looking just like in my earlier screenshot.

Another way to replicate this is to have only one panel open and then use middle-click to close it. Putting the cursor over the tab opens a popup which doesn't go away when the middle-clicking closes the panel.

Using Logos 4.6a Beta 4 on OS X 10.8.2, can replicate pop-up remaining on screen after middle mouse click.  Moving mouse causes pop-up to disappear.

Interesting. For me no amount of moving or clicking gets rid of it, but opening a new panel does.

These persistent popups belong on the Parity List, don't they?
