  • Can't highlight the exact words I want without highlighting larger section

    I don't think I had this problem before Logos 6, but on I am having difficulty highlighting specific text without a larger block automatically being included. For example, in the picture below I have tried to highlight the words "he healed them all" but when I do and ordered is automatically highlighted with the selected text. Does anyone know what

  • Re: When Bible Software Marketing Crosses a Theological Line

    I think it is important for us users to remember that all products have a shelf life. When I was in elementary school my parents bought me a lot of educational software for the Apple IIc. None of it works any longer. I don't even know if the Apple IIc would fire up if I tried it. When you buy a print book, it gets musty or mildews or eventually rots

    [quote user="Hermann Fritz"]Many times I have read through controversies in the forum. What I have seen here , has often left a sad impression. It reminds me of a Christian sports car driver I criticized a few years ago because he was driving too fast in a residential area with kids. I was friendly but clear in the matter, but he was aggressive and

    [quote user="alabama24"] Two years in a row I was able to get good deals on "regular" kindles. A year ago I bought the (then) current gen "original" kindle for $15 "out of pocket" with discounts. I loved it and still use it. This year, I was able to pick up the paperwhite for $45 "out of pocket." [/quote] Are these used on ebay or something?

  • Re: ALWAYS include page numbers in ALL resources

    [quote user="Phil Gons"]But it seems that identifying the paragraph-level text is sufficient and usually more precise than page numbers would be.[/quote] Yes, the paragraph is sufficient. Identifying a sentence would be overkill. If the book had short sections, identifying a section would be sufficient, but most books are not divided into short sections

    I just tried a scanned page from a Hebrew Grammar in Finereader. It was terrible. The program missed about half of the Hebrew. So I may look at Nuance since it is so cheap. However, I've been using Finereader for about 4 years and for English documents, it works great!
