BillS:
What did I do wrong?

Sorry for the delay, Bill. I've been on holiday.

The reason Passover doesn't appear is because the article in DCB is entitled "Passover (Christian Holiday)", rather than just "Passover". Logos doesn't know that the two are equivalent. It's frequently a problem, I'm afraid (e.g. "Atonement" is "Atonement in Christianity").

It doesn't always occur, because Logos does know a number of topics are equivalent (that's what the LCV is for), so a Topic Guide for "Lord's Supper" will return the DCB article on "Eucharist". But Logos doesn't know about both examples above, so the right article isn't found.

Thanks for the response, Mark.

Is the DCB supposed to show up in the topic section? Or only the collections section of the topic guide? Using various search inputs, I get results from DCB in the collections section, but not the topic section. Still OK?

Grace & Peace,
Bill

Yes, that's correct. PB's won't show up in the topic section, which is why I suggested creating the Collections section for DCB and any other encyclopedia PBs you have.

Thanks Mark. Then MTG appears to be working correctly, & THANK YOU for that tip!

Grace & Peace,

Just saw this now - thanks so much!

And... I second the suggestion to make a Wikipedia Art resource. I have at times used Wikipedia to gather art from artists I appreciate, like Blessed Fra Angelico. Of course, apart from this being difficult to put together, tag, etc., it might be quite a few Terabytes of data, especially if the high res versions were harvested.

I just tested this; the link is still active and I was able to download the resource. I don't know what could be causing it to not work for you, though.

Thank you, Mark!  I just built my very first PB.

Do you have other PB's available somewhere?  Is there a source page for PB's?

Mark,

i have completed compiling the book and followed the instructions for adding it to topic guide.

i would like to upload this book, but the button is greyed out.  Has Logos 6 already done this automatically, or is the book to large to be uploaded?

I downloaded the files correctly and was able to convert the dictionary when I was using Logos 5, but do to an issue I had to re-download the dictionary in Logos 6 and convert it again. But this time the conversion never finishes. It seems stuck at around 25% or so. Anyone else have this problem with personal book builder in Logos 6? Suggestions?

Thanks.

How long have you left it? It's a big resource. From memory, it took nearly an hour to compile for me and the percentage got confused, but in the end it finished.

My conversion is stuck at 25%. I deleted it and started over. Still no luck.

Any help?
