  • I want to change layout, but not open resouces

    The layout feature in L4 is great. I've saved several and they work really well. However, I find that at times I want to switch from one 'layout' to another 'layout', but I don't want to change the resources that I have open. For example, a minimal layout has Guide, Bible, Commentary and Dictionary panes, but a layout geared for marking up books has

  • Re: Slow Logos 4

    Bob, thanks for replying - it helps us understand that there is a performance issue, and what it is. I'm sure that as people upgrade their systems over time, this issue will diminish rapidly. In the meantime, I think that there's not a lot that I can do to speed things up, as I'm using 32bit XP Pro so I'm using the max 3GB RAM that this allows (even

    [quote user="Lynden Williams"] "Free software"? Which ones. Right away I raise a red flag. Are you certain it is not killing your bandwidth and as a result your CPU sending and receiving info based on what you are doing? It took my machine about 15-20 seconds to pull up this layout. Sounds like an average amount of time to me. If you need it to go faster

  • Re: Slow Logos 4

    I too find that Logos 4 is really slow. I've saved a few layouts, for different Bible passages that I'm working on, and with no searches or lookups being displayed by default on each layout (i.e. no passage being looked up for commentaries, cross-references, biblical people etc.), it takes one layout 5-8 seconds to change and another 15-20 seconds to

  • Re: Suggestions for naming and organising multiple collections?

    Thanks Philip and Jon for explaining that. So, the metadata is being corrected, but do you know if there any plans to use this to provide us with a way to organise our library? It would seem good to use Dewey or LOC, since after all the software is a 'digital library'. Reinventing the wheel is not one of my favourite activities, so if a library system

  • Re: Suggestions for naming and organising multiple collections?

    [quote user="Philip Spitzer"] One thing to consider about setting up Collections is that they are in the process of correcting a lot of the metadata. that means a lot of the manual weeding of dynamic collections to get unwanted things out will be unnecessary once the correct metadata is in place. personally I'm holding off setting up my collections

  • Re: Suggestions for naming and organising multiple collections?

    Thanks for those suggestions - my current set of collections is more or less of the same order of detail. But I've been looking for something more detailed, for when the library grows, as it has already in some areas. I've come across the Dewey classification system for religion http://www.oclc.org/dewey/resources/summaries/#200, which is more along

  • Suggestions for naming and organising multiple collections?

    Hi, I'm about to start renaming my collections and putting each book either dynamically or statically into one or more collections. However, when I did this for v3, I soon found that my limited list of collections was not refined enough, with far too many books in most collections. For many books, this removed the benefit or organising them, as I had

  • Re: Collections and Keylinking

    [quote user="Philip Spitzer"] I think your right, its too subjective. You will have to do this one manually I believe. You can either 1) tag them all the same, e.g. BestComms and then set up a collection with a rule of mytag:bestcomms. Or you can add them one by one to the "+ these resources" section. Put the collection and Library side by side and

  • Re: panel maximize vs floating a window

    Thanks for explaining that. Once I know it, it is obvious. But I was opening copy tabs, then viewing them in floating windows, until I found this. It is a learning curve that I'm sure others will have to go through too.

  • Re: Collections and Keylinking

    Correct me if I am wrong, there seems to be no way to easily add certain specific books to a collection titled e.g. "Best Commentaries" where commentary series U on Acts would be included, commentary series V and W on Romans, commentary series X on 1 Cor, and so on would be added. What I'm trying to do is build up a collection of the best commentaries

  • Re: panel maximize vs floating a window

    This is a really great feature, but I had to search the forum to find this. Is there not a small icon that could be on each section to click, instead of having to know the secret F11 key?
