  • Re: Upgrading from Libronix

    Thank to everyone for all the input. I wasn't as precise in my question as I could have been, but that got me some additional valuable input. I was curious if the base engine for L6 will get me anything appreciably more than the base engine for L5, without buying crossgrades. However, what I hear you all saying is, it is a small upgrade from 5 to 6

    [quote user="Mark Barnes"] It's hard to tell exactly what you're work flow is, but the only capability I think you might lose is the ability to open multiple lexicons with one double-click. Logos 4/5/6 restrict that to one lexicon, although you can open others with just a further click afterwards. I suggest you download L5 (it's free!), and once it

    [quote user="Rich DeRuiter"]Or you can scroll through your lexicons with the right/left arrow keys (as in Libronix), or choose another lexicon from the parallel resources drop-down list at the top of the tab (of those 2 options, I almost always choose the 2nd). I rarely find it necessary to have more than one lexicon open at a time.[/quote] Hmmm. It

    [quote user="NB.Mick"]They were part of the L4 Minimal Crossgrade. In my post above I originally wanted to point out that this rather inexpensive thing should be part of the upgrade, even if no further datasets and features are wished for, only to find out that it has been retired and the only MCs left are for L6.[/quote] I absolutely agree with you

    [quote user="Todd Phillips"]You can create a layout that has multiple lexicons open and link them together. So when you look up a word/lemma, Logos will find it in the highest prioritized one, but all the linked ones will then also move to the same entry, if they have it. Works great.[/quote] Thanks Todd. Sounds like a viable work-around to what I'm

    [quote user="Dave Hooton"]See this feature comparison Look for items that are not available in L5 but that will work in L6 Engine ("Y" or blank) e.g Label Entry [/quote] Thanks. That's a chart I haven't seen before.[quote user="Dave Hooton"] Updating from free L5 to free L6 is much the same as installing L5 except that there will be no resource downloads

  • Re: Does Anyone Find This A Little Disturbing?

    First, looking at your resources, I'm not sure I'd call these guys a cult, though these resources do point to some cult-like tendencies. The very fact that they tell their people that "this isn't for everyone," and if people are uncomfortable, they are allowed to freely leave and seek other church communities separate them from an actual cult in my

    I'd like to give you guys (generic masculine, referring to the people complaining about having to call in to get a sale price) a different perspective on this. I get the frustration over the pre-pub price restriction, and think it is a valid complaint about not extending a publisher's sale, when other software companies are. However, after reading through

  • Re: Concern: How safe is it to save sermons in Logos?

    In every situation I've had personal knowledge of, servers were/are generally considered more reliable than an individual hard drive. All servers that I'm aware of back up the data on them to multiple sources, and very frequently. Also, my sense has been that individual servers tend to be more reliable in general than individual computers as well (for

    I have finally found a method that works pretty well for me. I use a combination of Kindle and Evernote. I generally will read books I care about on my Kindle Paperwhite. I will highlight each chapter number and title, and then whatever is significant in the chapter, AS WELL AS sentences that make the point of the chapter (not always the same thing

  • Re: recommended books when studying/preaching

    Michael Childs' recommendations are rock solid, I doubt anyone would argue that these aren't either THE best, or among the best. Of course, many/most of these resources are most helpful for people with Greek and Hebrew training. That said, if absolutely forced to use only one of each, my preferences would be slightly different than Michael's: Bible

  • Re: NICOT/NICNT vs. WBC

    You've gotten great input, and my opinion is similar to others, but it might help you to know that this is another vote in that direction. I agree with others that individual commentaries by particular authors in these two sets tend to be more significant than which series they come from. Having said that, I don't love the format of the Word series

  • Re: Logos Atlas vs. Accordance

    Yeah, I've never liked the maps in Logos. Some of that is personal preference, as to me, many of them look cartoonish. I also dislike that most of the maps don't orient with north at the top. I'm not sure why they do that, but it makes the structure part of my brain go bonkers. For nearly 20 years now, I have kept my old (ancient) version of Parsons
