  • Apologetic Explorer/Guide

    A while ago I mentioned something about a philosophy explorer tool or a guide similar to the theology guide/systematic theology tool. But maybe something with a broader appeal to Faithlife's primary audience would be an apologetics tool or an apologetics guide?

  • Re: SUGGESTION: Leibniz's "Theodicy"

    [quote user="David Paul"]unless it's sandwiched in somewhere.[/quote] Faithlife does need to fix a problem with how some works in their catalogue can be found or organized. For instance, someone looking for Cicero's On Duties might think the work is unavailable in Logos (except as prepub), but actually you have to find it by the Latin title, De Officiis

  • Filtering Notes Question

    If, in a particular resource, I want to display only the highlights of a specific palette and then a new style within that palette, how do I go about it? (I'm using a palette and its styles as a substitute for a one-step tagging solution, since it saves me time from having to tag note files which are created from highlights.)

  • Re: Logos 9 Wishlist

    [quote user="Denise"] - Logos is making a killing, even after royalties (along with the iffy tagging) - Logos has a really bad contract [/quote] Since resources like WBC and NICOT have been on Logos a long time, I'm guessing it's at least partly bad contract? Remember how reluctant publishers were to get into digital books? About as much as the music

  • Re: Logos 9 Wishlist

    [quote user="Lee Gordon"]Yep. Something tells me that as long as people keep shelling out for EBC, NICOT, and WBC, they'll keep them as stand-alones. Also, some of these titles are offered for a fraction of the cost on another Bible program. NICOT is now going for $139.99, NICNT is going for $129.99 ($269.98 total), vs. $1899.99 on Logos. And the format

    [quote user="Jan Krohn"]True, expensive books are more accessible now. But that isn't really a good argument. Free download sites also make expensive books more accessible. Borrowing and photocopying books also make them more accessible. But anything that makes books more accessible, causes a loss for the publisher and the author.[/quote] That's a fair

  • Re: Faithlife ebooks VS. Kindle ebooks: Pricematch?

    Looking at the Business Insider article you posted, it looks like the case I linked to has ties to the case 2014 dispute discussed by BI. I know you have a lot of beef with Amazon, but I still think their position actually makes the most sense: "In June, a letter Amazon wrote to a handful of Hachette authors became public. That letter suggested the

  • Re: Faithlife ebooks VS. Kindle ebooks: Pricematch?

    This article is a bit dated, but it indicates that Amazon (at least circa 2013) sells some ebooks at a loss: "They can sell the title for $9.99 even if their agreement with the publisher stipulates that they must pay the publisher a royalty of more than $9.99. Meaning, Amazon chooses to lose money on many of the books it sells, a fact documented in

    Have you tried just opening multiple instances of the book? (Otherwise, you might just consider adding some RAM.)

  • Re: Faithlife ebooks VS. Kindle ebooks: Pricematch?

    Amazon is likely selling these ebooks at a loss. They can absorb the loss because they are such a big company and because it can hook a person into their entire ecosystem. Although Logos might be able to hook some people into their more limited ecosystem this way, it's probably not enough to be profitable on the whole. There can be a benefit(s) to having

    OBS is probably the best, imo. It can look intimidating, but there are tons of tutorials online (try YouTube). If you're having a hard time finding a tutorial for streaming/recording your screen, try searching for something related to streaming games on OBS, since this is probably the most common usage and the process for streaming one's game will be

    Could you make the hit-detection box for the download button, on the library screen, bigger? Can't count how many times I've tried to hit the button to download a resource and end up opening the resource instead.

    Looking at the table of contents for the second book you link to and comparing it with the table of contents of his Christian Ethics book, they appear to be identical. I also compared a page from the Amazon preview of this book with the same page in the Christian Ethics book and they were, again, identical.

    Decided to do some general browsing of Faithlife's philosophy resources since it had been a while that I went to the store without a specific purpose in mind. I noticed that they have several "Introduction to..." series that are a curation of Faithlife resources. The Introduction to Plato's Dialogues says that it is dynamically priced at $43.72 for

    The idea of Noet was exactly what I had been asking for for years. Having important works from the humanities seems like an obvious way to expand your customer base beyond pastors and theologians to academics generally. What philosopher wouldn't want to have the same study tools for Plato and Aristotle or English teacher for Shakespeare and Homer? But
