  • Re: Why Proclaim Won't Work for Us Right Now

    Hey Matt! I thought it was funny to see someone I know reply to my post! I suspect you guys are in very much the same situation as us. We have slightly faster internet than we used to, but still it isn't anything blazing. I am also concerned about what the server loads will be like on Sunday mornings and on Saturdays (when I expect lots of people are

  • Why Proclaim Won't Work for Us Right Now

    Hi, I'm the associate pastor at a small-medium (200+ member) church in rural Illinois. We have used multimedia in our worship services for a couple of years now and have found it incredibly valuable. We have been using MediaShout version 3.5 for about 5 years (we used it before we installed our permanent system in our sanctuary). That program does a

    Thanks for that confirmation Bradley. I'm disappointed to hear it, but glad to have an answer direct from Logos.

  • Re: Illustrations in Passage Guide?

    Thanks James. I've tried adding an illustrations collection to my passage guide, but I didn't get much of any value. I may try searching topics that come up manually, though that seems like a real pain. I think that I'll stick with L3's functionality for the time being. I was just hoping that maybe that feature was just about ready.

  • Illustrations in Passage Guide?

    I've done pretty well lately in sticking to using only Logos 4, even though it is still often quite slow on my computer. Today I have been frustrated because I wanted to look for illustrations for my sermon and realized that I couldn't do that in L4. I have been following the betas to some degree (though haven't installed the beta version), but didn

  • Re: 4.0b Beta 1 Available

    I don't plan on jumping on the beta until we reach the RC stage, but I have to admit that I really like some of the new features being added. I know a couple are ones that many (including myself) specifically asked for, and there are several that I think will be really nice. I didn't know I wanted them until I saw them! Good work guys! Look forward

  • Re: Logos 4 sluggish - any suggestions?

    David, I realized this morning that I may have remembered incorrectly. Around the same time I made the switch to "run as administrator" I also upgraded to the Release Candidate. I can't be entirely sure whether it was running as administrator or updating to the RC that gave me trackpad scrolling. If you don't want to install something that is still

  • Re: Logos 4 sluggish - any suggestions?

    I don't know all the details on this, but I was unable to use my trackpad to scroll in Logos 4. Then, in an effort to reclaim some speed I set Logos to run as administrator, and lo and behold, my trackpad works for scrolling! I have read the statements that it is not yet implemented in the platform on which Logos 4 is built, and I can't explain why

  • Re: Making Automatic Citations Work

    So, apparently this is Murphy's Law in action (or my own ignorance...), but in going into various books from which I have recently copied and pasted, I do indeed get page numbers. I could swear that I did not a couple days ago when I attempted to do the same thing, but looking back at some of my notes documents, I do indeed have them. As a matter of

  • Making Automatic Citations Work

    I have loved using Logos for research purposes for sermons, papers, etc. I like the ability to copy and paste something right into my document (or now, even use the clippings feature instead of having a notes document in Word). My only complaint has been the citations feature. It seems to have such promise--eliminating the tedious work of trying to

  • Re: Slow Logos 4

    Honestly, that's one of the things that is bugging me about Logos 4--it feels too much like beta software. I guess I look at it as though truly release-worthy software shouldn't require me to format my computer. Like many others, I don't reformat unless I have to (which has been a couple different times in the last year or so), but I also don't test

  • Re: Slow Logos 4

    Melissa, thanks for the tip about cleaning up the user temp folder--mine had nearly 2 GBs in it, so it was definitely time to clean it out. I was skeptical that it would help much since my other programs do not seem to be plagued by the same speed issue as Logos 4, and indeed it did not help Logos 4 to a noticeable degree. I'm happy to try some other

  • Speeding Opening of Bible Reading Plan

    I have a Bible reading plan set up in Logos 4 (like I had in Logos 3). When I click on the reading for the day in the ribbon, it takes a long time for the plan to open. I suspect it is because when it does open, it also has a passage guide and the Bible Explorer open. In theory, it would be awesome to have these things open as I read...but not when

    Bob, thanks for taking the time to respond. I'll admit that I don't fully understand the intricacies of the architecture you described, but I understood was that it is complex, power intensive, but very powerful and flexible. I understand your desire to plan for the future--it makes good business sense (particularly if you hope to have long product

    Bruce, I have Spybot installed, but I only use it to apply immunizations--I don't have SD or tea-timer running. I checked the processes running on my computer, and it doesn't appear that anything related to Spybot is running. Mine's still slow.

  • Re: Slow Logos 4

    Ok, well that means that the AMD theory is probably incorrect. It seemed unlikely to me to begin with, but I thought I'd ask. I'm still hopeful that maybe there's something in the code that can be optimized.

  • Re: Slow Logos 4

    Ok, so I had another thought about a possible commonality, though it still seems unlikely to me. Could there be some sort of issue with AMD processors? I noticed that the technical requirements state that a Core2Duo is the recommended processor. It could mean that the developers have Intel processors at the office. Could there be some sort of issue

  • Re: Slow Logos 4

    Richard, I certainly understand that integrated video is not ideal for graphics-intensive operations. Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't almost all laptops (outside of something like an Alienware) using integrated video? If your theory is correct, then it still seems strange to me that Logos would design their software so that it would not run properly

  • Re: Slow Logos 4

    Richard, that's pretty much what I would have guessed, but I was still hopeful. My laptop is only a year old, and Logos 4 will at least run on it (my Dad couldn't even get it to run on his computer), but it definitely isn't ideal. I certainly understand being on the cutting edge, but in my experience, most pastors don't have the ability to buy gaming

    Thanks guys, I appreciate your help--and knowing that I'm not totally crazy. FYI, I update my video drivers religiously (well, that may be hyperbole, but they're up to date). I'll consider upgrading the RAM, it's not a crazy expensive (or difficult) upgrade, but I'm still hopeful that Logos will streamline the program some. Is that naive? Will Logos
