Forgive me if this has been answered elsewhere; I have searched the site and forums to no avail.

I am not yet a Logos user, but have a question regarding base products and their component titles:

Q: When new titles are added to base products (as indicated with the "NEW!" icon in the comparison chart, are those titles included with the next point release for existing users?  That is to say, if you buy a particular base package and the next week 10 titles are added to that base package, are those titles made available for you, free of charge, to add to your existing library?

Thank you for your time.

If you are new to Logos then click Buy Now on http://www.logos.com/ to get the titles as listed. If that package is updated with NEW titles in the future you click on Upgrade Now to purchase them - they are not added free of charge.

To add to what Dave have said, Let's imagine you buy Logos 4 Scholars now, and in the future Logos 4.1 Scholars comes out with some new features and a slightly different set of resources. You'll be able to upgrade to 4.1 and get the new features free of charge. But you won't get any of the additional resources. For that, you'll have to pay an upgrade fee. (The same is true, by the way for Logos 5. It's not just point releases.)

I obviously can't predict pricing, etc. but these two blog posts explained what happened between Logos 3 and Logos 4, so will give you an idea of what to expect: http://blog.logos.com/archives/2010/01/upgrade_illustrated.html - it cost $128 to upgrade, for which you got 180 new resources.

For some time I have been looking for, but not finding a list which associates the file names in the resources folder with actual products from Logos.  For example, after the recent update, I noticed a file with the name "PPLBBLENCYC" in my L4 resources folder dated 6/28/2010 .  I attempted to find a book in the library of L4 which approximated that file name...but with no success.

I assume there must be a list somewhere on your site that associates a meaningful resource name with an abbreviated file name in the resources folder.  I am interested in that association for all files in the resources folder that represent books displayed in my L4 Library list.  I realize that some of the files might be sub-components of a particular feature of L4, rather than a particular book.  Also, I realize there may be multiple books for a given resource which require separate files for each book.  In my case, I am only interested in the specific "books" that are part of my package, and their abbreviated file names in my resource list.  Can anybody help with this?

Thank you!

Wayne, if you type the filename into the L4 command box (the one immediately to the right of "Tools' on the top menu bar), the name of the resource will pop up. I did this with the letters above and found that it's from the Images from the People's Bible Encyclopedia.

If it isn't clear to you how to do that, with my directions above, let me know and I'll include a screen capture.

Jim, I need to understand how you use the commentaries.
Are they in separate tabs of a layout?  Are they linked?  How many are involved?

Do they disappear when you restart L4?

When you "leave over night" what were you expecting to happen?

Can you provide an image of your commentaries as they should be?

Jim, if you turn off the "Show home page at startup" option (on the Customize menu, which you'll find at the lower left of your Home Page), then Logos will remember your last layout when you shut it down and will open back up to where you left off. Otherwise it opens back up to the Home Page whenever you start it up, and then whenever you do a passage lookup, it opens just a default commentary. If you have a Layout you like, it's best not to use the Home Page to do your passage lookups. It just uses a default layout which you can't control. You can do a lot more with Layouts when you contruct them yourself.

Most users, once they've become comfortable with the Layout system in Logos, do not use the Home Page for launching their Bible studies. You might still use the Home Page once in a while to see what's new from Logos, but that's about it. If you still want Logos to bring up the Home Page upon startup (so you can see the daily news or whatever), then be sure to Save your Layout after you've arranged it the way you like it, and then you can open that Layout back up whenever you want.

To learn more about Layouts (including how to save them) watch the Layouts videos made by Logos: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XD6KkGMp2Wo and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CJmWfOksqpw, and some of the user-generated ones too, which you'll find here: http://wiki.logos.com/Logos_4_Video_Tutorials

Thank you for your helpful pointers. I have one question that I cannot seem to find the answer. When copying citations from Logos and pasting them to Microsoft Word 10, I no longer get the citations numbered as in Logos 3. I can copy the reference, but they are not formatted as before. Am I doing something wrong or is this how things are done in Logos 4? Thanks!

Hi Ivan

http://community.logos.com/forums/p/23008/171479.aspx talks about this - it looks like a "known problem" which is present in the current general release but fixed in the new version which is at the Release Candidate stage.

Hope this helps

Thanks very much Graham. It is good to know that it isn't me unable to understand something. I trust this will be fixed then. I will look at the forum comment you forwarded. God Bless you for your quick response! Ivan

I'm gettng increasingly disturbed ... I started off with a simple desire to print notes. (For some reason the first 2 or 3, down to a blue dashed line that I cannot remve, print ... and the rest of the items in the file don't Confused ... so I searched the forums ... couldn't find any help ... just a mass of threads that revealed that printing wasn't even supported at all until recently. I've got 4.2 on Vista ... so that's OK. but then I thought I'd try the FAQ's ... and when I go to the link I see the support options, but no FAQ's ... am I going nuts?

There was a temporary problem with the web site. Please try it again.

If you have further questions, please start a new thread rather than post here.

Ian - your description of what you are trying to do and the mention of a blue dashed line makes me think you are working with "handouts" as opposed to "notes".

Just wanted to check that. As Mark suggested, if you have specific questions it would be best in a new thread.

Chris, 

I have the same concern as Edi, in that I am pretty much satisfied from the resources I own from L3... the difference is, I purchased the Crossgrade

... on the screen where you have the option to purchase it, #3 note says: "Please note that you will need to own the corresponding English Bibles for the following interlinears to work. These Bibles are not included in the Minimal Crossgrade: New Living Translation, Authorized English Version (1873), English Standard Version, New King James Version, New Revised Standard Version.... blah, blah, blah...

 I had several of these bibles already ... it only took 21 hours for L4 to load  :0(  only to find out I did NOT receive ANY the reverse interlinears!!!  

Will I have to fish through the ftp://ftp.logos.com/LbxBooks/  as I did when I had to locate missing resources from L3 or is there an easier way? 

Thank You,

Hi Courtier

It may be worth starting a new thread as opposed to posting here (I couldn't find references to Chris and Edi to understand the context of your comments)

Just one quick point. Reverse Interlinears don't show as separate resources in L4 but are accessed from the English Bibles using one of the RI buttons at the top of RI-enabled resources. See http://wiki.logos.com/Reverse-Interlinear$2fInterlinear__Bibles for information to find out which you have and how to access them.

Please check this and advise whether this works. If not, it is probably worth starting a new thread on this.

Graham
