  • Re: Bible Software

    It will be interesting to see what Logos 9 brings to the table. More so than usual. My perspective of using Bible software for the last 25 or so years is that as the market has matured, we have had full tables of opportunities of study placed before us and developments are not as dramatic as they used to be. So I am curious if I will be 'wowed' by this

  • Re: Logos 9 Wishlist

    +1 Maps have been a constantly requested area of focus going back to Logos 2 before series X. I appreciate what has been done and it is not like there has not been any investment at all, but if Logos 9 could make maps rock, that would be awesome!

Therefore, Faithlife needs to improve the sequencing of the data in the Liturgy Guide section, implement historic lectionaries (i.e. liturgical dates only), and implement a basic structure

    I am interested in this as well... and I highly suspect that to a number of church traditions it would be a hit!

  • Re: Logos. I give up.

    I have been considering reporting spikes in processor consumption by Logos in the first few minutes on OSX 10.14.3 and the most recent version of Logos. This is with no visible indicator of indexing or downloading of new resources. This is also on a MBP that is about two months old with an SSD, 16GB and i7 2.2 Ghz. On Saturday when this occurred, the

    Some of these MVPs I have known going back to the old Logos usenet newsgroups. Them, along with the newer ones, follow my general impression that they are honest and generous volunteers. The company is solid too and Bob has answered my emails on more than one occasion. The value of generosity and integrity only comes from a group of people choosing

  • Re: Initial Reaction to L8?

    Not to diminish any critical feedback, I have to say at least in terms of my expectations and experience is that L8 is the best Mac version ever. (I started with Series X on Windows, but moved to 1.x for Mac when it came out.) To me what makes L8 great is not the bells and whistles, datasets, etc., but speed and reliability. There is a clear improvement

  • Re: Logos 8 removed the button to change preferred Bibles

    I could be wrong, but similar to removing the 'i' button from resource panels, I suspect the intention is to try to simplify the interface. I get that. Therein lies a challenge. Some aspects of a UI probably don't statistically get used a lot, but to those that use them, it is essential in their workflows.

  • Is it just me? The 'i' button...

    Really appreciate the speed and stability of Logos 8. At least on the Mac platform, this is the best since we started on this journey with Logos 4. Well done team Logos! Whew! What a journey to get here! I like some of the tweaks to the UI and I am probably in a minority, but I'll throw it up in case there are a few unusual Logos users like me out there

  • Re: Is Logos 8 an improvement?

    [quote user="David McKay"]Do you think Logos 8 is an improvement? How? [/quote] Yes. Speed and stability. For some there were some elements left from some of the tools in shifting from version 7 to 8, losing therefore some feature parity. Personally, for what I use Logos for I was pleased and did not look back.
