  • Re: Question: How to open a Bible to just start reading?

    Those are great tips - thank you! I will reiterate my original point that this isn't very discoverable. Now that I know how, it's great - I love using command-based interfaces. Thanks again, Donnie

  • Question: Floating and Docking Panels and Tabs

    I've seen questions on this topic, but I haven't seen anything I'd consider definitive on a few issues I encountered last night. I accidentally opened an entire panel (about 6 tabs) in a floating window. What I really wanted to do was just open one tab in a floating window. I'm pretty sure I just picked the wrong item from the right-click context menu

  • Question: How to open a Bible to just start reading?

    I fired up Logos 4 last night (latest 4.1 version) and simply wanted to read Ephesians. For the life of me, I couldn't figure out how to do that. I didn't want to type "Eph" into the search field on the home page or start a passage study or exegetical study - I just wanted to read. I looked through all the menu options, high-level tabs (Home, Library

  • Re: Downloads: Its time for General Consensus to be considered

    BITS is great for control at the workstation level. However, if nothing else is happening on an individual workstation, BITS can let the floodgates open and saturate my entire internet connection. This happened to me last night. What was my recourse? Putting my laptop to sleep until a better time, at which point I had to manually fire it up and let

  • Re: Automatic downloads and throughput

    I did notice that, but I was wary of the term "Cancel". That's why I put my laptop to sleep to achieve that effect. They need to put a whole set of menu options on that context menu (besides just "Cancel"), most importantly some details around the progress beyond "x% of y.zGB". How about a list of which books have been completely downloaded and which

  • Re: Best way to browse / verify library?

    Mark and Graham, Thank you very much for these hints. That advice will probably be sufficient for me to more easily browse my library without my eyes glazing over. ;) Now they just need to add something to the "About" box to explicitly state the edition I've purchased. Donnie

  • Re: Automatic downloads and throughput

    I appreciate your response. As someone who's been developing software for 20+ years, the so-called "design" of a program should never trump user experience. In this particular case, there are a number of well-established mechanisms that can be used to verify complete downloads or to allow downloads to be done separate from the app itself and verified

  • Re: Best way to browse / verify library?

    Is "type" (from your comment) an icon or something like that when I'm viewing the library?

  • Automatic downloads and throughput

    I'm quite displeased with the whole "automatic downloads" functionality of Logos 4. I know I can turn off internet access or disable automatic downloads in the settings, but that doesn't leave me with any mechanism of doing version upgrades or adding content. (Note that manually initiating these actions isn't what I'm referring to - it's still being

  • Best way to browse / verify library?

    I upgraded to Logos 4 in January. In the last day or so, I upgraded my edition so I could get more books that I was interested in. Last night, the download of all the new content seems to have completed and been installed / indexed. However, I can't find a great way to verify this. 1) Is there someplace within the Logos software itself that I can go

  • Re: Installation - Specifying Destination Folder ???

    Based on the feedback in this thread, I'm running as a regular user and attempting to install the software to D:\Logos4 - a folder that was created by and is owned by this regular user. The error I'm getting now is "You do not have sufficient permissions to install to this folder." Note that the installer did *not* say I have to be an administrator

  • Re: Installation - Specifying Destination Folder ???

    I can't "install it into the directory of [my] choice" if my choice is "C:\Program Files". Microsoft called it "Program Files" for a reason, and set standards of how applications are to be installed and use that area. Donnie

  • Re: Installation - Specifying Destination Folder ???

    I'm responding to the comment: "C:\Program Files" is only writable by administrators, but Logos 4 is designed to be run under regular user accounts. Installing it in a folder only writable by admins breaks the auto-update feature.' While C:\Program Files is restricted to administrators, installing applications there has no impact on whether an auto

  • Installation - Specifying Destination Folder ???

    I'm trying to install Logos 4.0a from DVD onto a Windows XP SP3 laptop. I am performing the installation as an administrator, though I'll run as a non-admin user after installation. I picked a custom installation. It specifies the default folder for installation as a location under C:\Documents and Settings\{user}\Local Settings\Application Data. That
