  • Re: Reading Plan Date Edit- Logos 8

    The reading plan tool seems to be designed for marketing, not using. In other words, it is never going to work as well as you were led to believe in the advertising. Given that, there are some things that are helpful to remember. First, if you share a reading plan, you cannot edit it. If you leave the plan to you (only), it should be editable (not easily

  • The Risks of Digital Libraries

    Every once in a while, we have a fun discussion around here on how permanent our (sometimes outrageously expensive) Logos purchases are. Here's a little gasoline to throw on the fire. I say that tongue in cheek, as one of those who is NOT converting his library to digital (a smart but expensive

  • Verse number not in consistent position

    This may or may not be a Logos/MA issue at all...not sure. Can anyone tell me why the verse number in the ESV is different than the verse number in the Lexham Greek edition? (I found it the same in the desktop version.) See the screenshot.

  • How do you leverage your apparatus?

    Here is a screenshot of my just-downloaded GNT (Tyndale House) along with its apparatus. I'm wanting to know the tricks of the trade you experts use in leveraging your apparatus. For example, is there a way to set up click or double-click to identify witnesses? (I can remember the big codices like Alexandrinus, Sinaiticus and Vaticanus, but often need

    Good question. I'm not aware of any and I don't immediately see a creative way to make one (that means, something other than typing in all the authors or titles). These seem to be categorized several different ways in Logos.

  • Re: Inconsistent naming of this journal makes issues out of order in Title sort

    I've notice what (I assume is) a similar problem with several journals. When sorted by title, it groups all the January issues together, all the February, etc. The cause is obvious but the solution is a bit harder since sorting by date sometimes seems to have no effect. The fix for the OP noted problem is obvious as well...if FL can't dedicate the
