  • Re: Other theological dictionaries in searches?

    Yes, that's the symptom of the previously noted fact that the Zondervan Encyclopedia isn't yet included in the LCV. I think the best workaround for now is the one Mark Barnes has mentioned above . That is: follow the link to a dictionary that is included (like NBD) use the '+' icon to show parallel resources. It's not perfect, but it will work the large

    [quote user="Mike Binks"]Of the others, now 12, that interact with my paid for resources, three Biblical People, Biblical Places and Biblical Things do not work with the resource.[/quote] I don't think this is correct. Those three sections of the Passage Guide are meant to show specific items that are mentioned in the passage in question, to link you

    I use Notes for organizing reading lists: it gives me a little space to annotate why i thought a particular resource was important and other comments to myself.

    [quote user="MJ. Smith"] [quote user="Sean Boisen"]One clarification search terms: BWS exposes only the terms you can actually find in your Bible . So unless you have KJV as your preferred Bible, you won't ever see "Jimnah" as a search term, since that form is only used in the KJV ( Gen 46:17 ): modern translations use "Imnah" instead.

    [quote user="Todd Phillips"] ... I appreciate that you have a prioritized list--I hope that the IVP dictionaries are very high on the list. I'm also hoping that some resources that aren't directly related to "Biblical Studies" per se are on your list, like Oxford dictionary of the Christian Church , the New Dictionary of Theology , the Dictionary of

    [quote user="Dave Hooton"] ... yet L4 came out with this arcane approach via Basic Search when BWS Definition was the obvious area to concentrate on). Net result - L4 is backwards on any real progress in the areas of both topic searching and metadata accuracy, and Logos appears to have lost one of its Information Architects. That's a long way of agreeing

  • Re: Other theological dictionaries in searches?

    [quote user="Rosie Perera"] Hmm, that doesn't help me any. What might cause mine to be different? I'm fully indexed, and a Basic search for Abishag in my Dictionaries collection does find it in those dictionaries. I suppose I should try rebuild index overnight anyway. Is that the built-in BWS template or a custom one? Did you type abishag in manually

    [quote user="Rosie Perera"] The best news would be if your replacement isn't actually going to replace you but be added to your team. This project seems like it needs a team of 3-5 people working on it full time. And I don't see the work ever being finished, either. Think of all the new pre-pubs and community pricing titles that are coming along which

  • Re: Other theological dictionaries in searches?

    [quote user="Todd Phillips"] Unlike others, this is my biggest disappointment with Logos4. In addition to the dictionaries yet to be tagged, the LCV excludes historical terms, theological terms, personal names, and other technical terms, which means that my historical, theological, and biographical dictionaries are excluded by default from topic searches

  • Re: Other theological dictionaries in searches?

    [quote user="Rosie Perera"] Please try to bump up the priority/urgency of this LCV work. It's one of the most common disappointments with Logos we see on the forums. People remembering the old L3 topic browser and wanting to be able to do something like that in L4, people wanting a quick way to search for headwords in dictionaries and encyclopedias

    [quote user="Mike Binks"] ... On the above mention thread I expressed concern that the advertising for the Zondervan Collection contains the line, 'Titles integrate into custom search reports, Passage Guides, Exegetical Guides, and the other advanced features of Logos Bible Software.' No mention was made of the fact that some of the tagging was incomplete

    [quote user="JimT"] It was a general comment, given the direction Logos appears to be moving and hinting, as I read it. Already our content is online, and reduced functionally if we don't have a recent sync with the cloud (thinking loss of data / backups here) A hint that PBB may have a significant online aspect, including maybe the processing.

    We're actively working on several fronts here to: rationalize the fields we use in markup go back over older resources and making the field markup more consistent expose all the available fields for user search Most recent resources will use these general fields consistently: footnote surface heading (currently only Bibles, but other resources soon

    Dominick: I don't have a 5-year plan, and you'd be advised to disbelieve it if I did: the technology changes way too fast for that. But you're absolutely correct that as the library grows, the challenge changes from "more books" to "better access". Here are a few things we're thinking about: One of our highest priorities is incorporating more dictionaries

    Dewayne: Thanks for the suggestion. Several of the Tools open up in a separate floating window for just this reason: you really need more space to see them, and then you can even make that window full-screen and toggle between the different windows (Alt-Tab is your friend). I expect we'll continue to add information to the strip at the top: so if anything
