New to Logos 5 but have noticed that on the timeline when you hover over and event it brings up books/quotes relevant to that event. However it seems that it shows the wrong part of the texts ie the Suicide of Cleopatra in 30BC. When you hover and see the first bit of text "History" note it starts 30BC. When you click on it then you get the correct reference which is the sentence before. I have tried this on a number of events and it seems to do the same thing. The references should be the sentences before.

I am a bit confused, about what you are seeing, but find the Timeline works correctly for me. I specifically tried the reference you referred to.

Are you using a PC or a Mac? I'm on a PC.

I'm on a PC at the mo. Pics attached to show hopefully what I mean. When I click on the reference ie "History" and it takes me to the resource I have to scroll up to the previous sentence to get the proper text.

I see what you mean but I think you probably want more than one line. You'd like it to jump up to the beginning of the sentence containing the timeline reference.

That does make sense, and perhaps Logos can reprogram it to show four-five lines before the reference instead of all those lines after it. Locating exactly where to start for each citation would be a lot of work, but showing a fixed number of lines before might be possible and would help make the pop-up much more useful.

Yes I agree. It's a bit annoying having to scroll back each time. Be good if Logos could look into tweaking this

Why not make this as a specific suggestion in the Suggestions Forum? You can reference this thread.
