I started comparing my imported notes with the original files and found some serious problems.  Some notes came in in the wrong order.  Others aren't there at all.  Also in the scroll bar won't go all the way down to the bottom of it's range.  No errors were reported during the import.

Some notes came in in the wrong order.

The note import in Logos 4 is not currently order preserving. The notes in Logos 4 are ordered as if you had right clicked -> Add Note each note. We will fix this for a future release.

JeffreyGlenJackson:
Others aren't there at all.

Please attach the LDLS 3 note file and if possible provide more information about what exactly is missing.

JeffreyGlenJackson:
Also in the scroll bar won't go all the way down to the bottom of it's range.

This is currently by design. We're displaying the notes in a different kind of list to support the large number of notes some user submitted documents had.

JeffreyGlenJackson:
No errors were reported during the import.

Any errors occurring during import will be in the log file. http://wiki.logos.com/Diagnostic_Logging

  • Bible reference input boxes support the specification of a versemap to use when parsing

What is this? How do you do it? What's the syntax?

Is there a time coming soon when we'll be able to customize all our icons on the shortcut bar?

I just noticed (I think it's new in Beta 2) that the Close All icon has changed from this:

to this:

I liked the old one better. Why the change? Is there a time coming soon when we'll be able to customize all our icons on the shortcut bar?

This was the last bitmap icon that carried over from early in development. If you were in the private beta for 4.0 you may remember a wrench icon floating around before I was able to replace it. This is another one like the wrench.

 

This is just a replacement for the default command icon, more specific command icons should come in a future release, but I don't know when.

It seems that we have lost the ability to nest folders in "Favorites" or even the ability to add items such as clippings and notes to a folder.

Yikes! I confirmed that this is broken for me too, in 4.0b Beta 2. My nested folders that I already had are intact, but I can't create any new ones.

Yep, folders are broken in favorites.  I think the favorites window needs work anyway:  I should be able to create a link in a folder without having to drag it there after the fact.

 

 

Whoops, this seems to be a known issue see

I don't know if it is a bug or limited functionality but when I click on hits from "My Content" after a search, it simply opens the file (eg, a note file) but does not display the entry where the hit is found. For instance, I was looking for a note I had made on the colour white in my Bible notes. Indeed Bible Notes showed under the My Content results, but the click led me to my entry on Genesis 1:1. I had to CTRL-F "White" in order to find the actual entry (on Leviticus 14:4). What happened to the red circle?

Bradley edits that "Known Issues" section of his post when he sees the bug reports coming in here, for the benefit of people just now seeing the beta release and reading the notes for the first time. He added that line to the "Known Issues" section within the last couple of hours, I'm pretty sure. I know it wasn't there before when I checked for it, and the list had only 4 items in it when I downloaded the beta.

4.0b Beta 2 (v4.02.3.5022) is now available for testing; enter "update now" to begin downloading it.

Opened up the beta and it auto updated. Did not need to enter anything in the update box.

 

 

Same here launched L4 and it immediately auto updated, performance seems impressive considering I'm running it in vmware 6.x on top of windows 7 64bit. Didn't want to run it on the host OS along with my 4.0a, on that note I also run Libronix 3.0 in another VM, on top of the host that my 4.0a is installed on. Allows for a lot ov versatility.

I imported "all" and it all worked fine but then all my notes was checked and visible in every resource. I have to uncheck notefile for notefile in every resource to get rid of it. I realise this will take a lot of time. Then I deleted all imported notes.

I want to import my notes "unchecked". Then I can choose if I want it to be visible in my resources. In v3 if I uncheck a note it "disapears" in every resource. I think thats an better way of working.

Maybe there should be an option to choose if check/uncheck should work in all resources or just in the one checking in but I don't know.

I believe if you right click on the specific visual filter you can tell Logos to not show it in any resource.

Bradley Grainger:
Added Parallel Resource drop-down menu in resource toolbar

Does this not include things like the EDNT and BDAG? I typically refer to these two and the WSDNT as my go to spots. I would love to be able to use the association to move from one to the other. For now I just have them promoted and showing up in the WbW in the PG.

Bradley Grainger:
Added “Speed search” to Bible search, which is now the default

Is this working as expected? It is very sluggish on my machine and stops at every letter. There is nothing remotely speedy about it on my machine. Indexing is completed and I am on Beta two.

Bradley Grainger:
Added Bibles-only search index

Perhaps this is related to my second comment, but is this working yet?

 

I find it faster to do a regular search than a speed search. The only difference I see is you don't hit enter with the speed search.

 

Bradley Grainger:
Resources support navigating by data type levels, highlighting, and search results

This was very helpful. I wanted to make this suggestion. But I never took the time. My layout has a Word by Word open all the time and this will greatly improve its effectiveness. One suggestion I have thought about is that it follow according to the mouse click suggestion, and not the cursor location? If I click a few verses down in the text, the input box for the text immediately updates. However, the input for the PG containing the WbW does not change. I will explain. If I have ESV at verse 1, then click at verse 7, the input box updates. At this point it would be nice to have the PG that is linked update as well. If at this point I select the arrow for next verse, the ESV moves to verse 8 and the PG updates. If the input box gained focus when I mouse click, I think I could possibly hit enter and force the PG to adjust. The work around at this point seems to be to click one verse short of what I want to move to and then click next verse. Interestingly, there was one single time that I clicked on a spot a few verses down and the PG jumped to it. I don't know what circumstances allowed it to happen. But it did it. Strange...

There seems to be a bug with searches by "mytag:" When I use one of these the search comes up with no result. I searched my resources on Jesus for "Jesus" and it came up with no result. I tried another collection and searched for "God" with the same result. I rebuilt the index just in case but it has not solved the problem.

Have others experienced this problem in 4.0b b2?

Francis,

I can reproduce this in 4.0b b2 and will report it.

Update: This should be fixed in 4.0b Beta 3.

Thanks,

I have continued to work with this and found the following:

Right clicking somewhere in a verse most of the time causes the PG to update.

Moving back from a search window after doing a search causes the PG to update to where you clicked.

Basically anything that takes the focus allows the PG to automatically refresh to whatever you select when you return to the text.

Hitting Tab and Enter will cause the PG to update.

And the winning solution was so simple it is ridiculous. Double clicking on the verse number causes the PG to update. All I can say is duh! I should have tried that first.

I think I have deducted that the speed search is using a different index than the regular search. There are different lists of word suggestions showing up.

It also seems that the more that you use it, the faster it gets. Maybe there is some learned indexing going on?

In spite of my questions, I am glad to see it coming back. Hopefully soon it will be instantaneous.

I'm not sure I understand what you mean. If I left-click on the cymbol with three cirkels (forget the name for it) I get a droplist with every applicable option in that resource. It could be to show pagenumbers, notefiles, bible readings, link to open panels... depending on type of resource. When importing my notefiles all of them show up in every bible and commentary. If I uncheck something in the drop down list it disappears only in that resource. I have to repeat this action in every resource and there is  lot of them.

Where do you mean I can right click on a specific visual filter? Please explain it to me or post a Screen dump.
