  • Re: How to re-write and release a replacement product.

    [quote user="Bob Pritchett"] [The fun stuff always blows up on the forums when I'm on the road. :-) etc . . . [/quote] Bob, If you've tripped over a couple of my posts elsewhere, you'll know I've been a bit grumpy about Logos 4. And yes, as a guy who's also spent decades (sigh, sad but true) in I/T, I do see merit in some of the things that Ken has

  • New Improved Upgrade Discount Calculator - possibly not?

    After reading the blog post, I decided to fire up the updated Upgrade Discounter to see if it was a little easier to understand. A bit of background: I already purchased an upgrade from Scholar's 3 to Scholar's 4. It seemed like a good deal, and truthfully the dollars seemed pretty small. So this time just for the sake of comparison, I went ahead with

  • Re: C.S. Lewis Collection

    [quote user="John McComb"] Many of us quote Lewis frequently. It would be wonderful to be able to search his books, essays, letters, and literary works. I'll say. Trying to find references to little bits like his flatworld metaphor in this stack of paperbacks is hard work. Some of his books are almost reference works. there's a lot of theology in there

    [quote user="Robert Pavich"] Jim, my feelings aren't bruised nor are they hurt.. Now are his comments "well articulated" or are they "ill phrased"? I keep pointing out that he had two choices...do something constructive OR complain in a less than adult manner. I wouldn't even have had it go farther except that somehow you thought that my suggestion

    [quote user="Robert Pavich"] Ungracious? How in the world is ungracious to suggest that rather than cry about what piece of crap this software is that he just "get his money back and buy what he wants?" It seems very infantile to come to a message board and INSTEAD OF ASKING FOR HELP to use phrases like: Loaded with extranous crap It rarely does what

    [quote user="Philip Spitzer"] [quote user="JimDunne"]I wonder - those of us who migrated from 3.x are already on-board with Logos, so to speak. But how will someone who's completely new to the product react to the current state of things? I really hope that this doesn't backfire on Logos.

  • Re: Issue #XXXXXXXXXXX

    [quote user="John Duffy"] I just think that it was released with too much not right, and it's causing a fair bit of frustration in places. But I think that the development team needs our support to have time to (hopefully) address these, even though the product seems to have been released too early. [/quote] Well said - my thoughts as well. I wonder

  • Bible Display Format Queston

    Hi - Is there a way to configure Bibles so they display at 1 verse per display line, instead of in paragraphs? I poked around in the help files, but I couldn't find anything. Thanks, Jim D.

  • Re: New collections explained & Syntax examples

    [quote user="Philip Spitzer"] I agree that Collection creation in L4 as it currently stands is contrary to the feel of almost everything else in L4. I am curious to see how they develop as L4 matures. I would certainly argue with you that Library management should be neat and tidy. But in L4 this is a function of tagging and rating, not collections

    [quote user="Philip Spitzer"] I have added a "defense of dynamic collections" section to the collections wiki. Sense there were some here who seem not to be sold on the "dynamic collections" idea I would like to run it by you, not so much to change your mind but to test its presentation and validity. So please let me know what you think about the following

  • Re: New collections explained & Syntax examples

    [quote user="Daniel DeVilder"] Jim D, I am essentially with you on your reflections. To me the ideal of dynamic collections are nice, the implementation of them is tedious and suspect for guys like me. But I NEED collections to narrow down fields of study to search within. And I wonder why Logos couldn't use any one of a number of current library classification

    [quote user="Philip Spitzer"] [quote user="JimDunne"] But here's the real point, and the BIG DEAL: What the heck are a bunch of people who are learning to use a new Bible Study tool doing, having to wrangle about the best, most efficient, accurate way to write a database query, in what looks suspiciously like a form SQL? This whole idea is LOONEY TUNES

    [quote user="Robert Pavich"] [quote user="JimDunne"] Sigh. Robert, you make my point for me very well. I watched your screencast - and it would have excluded the other 27 resources that belonged in my collection very nicely. As I said, i built the rule progressively to get the resources I wanted. Maybe yours worked for you - it wouldn't work for me

    [quote user="Robert Pavich"] Jim, I took a look at your query and I see why you think what you do about how unreliable this system is...it's because your query was very broad flawed at the start that you manually excluded tons of things to make up for it. I took your query and changed it...click the link to see what happened. (and I'll take your bet

    [quote user="Robert Pavich"] Jim, Thanks for being somewhat specific.. It seemed like you are just more unhappy over change but not in any real specific way; Example: "V3 was feature rich but V4 isn't" VS a specific statement like: "I used to accomplish this by doing this this and this and now it's done this way and this is why it's worse to me" Can

    [quote user="Robert Pavich"] [quote user="JimDunne"] Now I understand that it can be argued that the command line-like structure gives some access to stuff - but I didn't have to do that before, and I'm really not interested in doing it now. I don't get why at least what us not-so-geeky types used before with great satisfaction wasn't preserved.[/quote
