  • Faithlife's fake request for feedback --

    So -- I received a link from Faithlife asking me for feedback. I spent 10 minutes or so typing some honest feedback for what I consider to be a borderline/has been going negative for a long time piece of software, and hit the "submit" button, and... " Our survey system is down for maintenance. Please try again soon!" As always, Faithlife only wants

  • Re: Another extended full feature set, really?

    Given all the confusion in the thread over pricing, I thought maybe a review of how I decide to, or not, buy a package in Logos might be useful. 1. I change to the "new to you" view. 2. Copy what's in this view to a spreadsheet. I create a line in the spreadsheet just below the list. 3. Search for each resource in acrchive.net and books.google to see

  • Re: Can I merge notes?

    The simplest way -- don't use Logos for notes at all. Instead, use OneNote, Evernote, or the like. The notes in Logos are designed to be limited, and should remain limited, IMHO, to something like "making notes in the margin of your Bible." I know Faithlife has done very little to make Logos work better with "other" note taking packages, but... If you

  • Re: Problems With Microsoft Word Citation

    Don't use Logos to directly paste into your documents -- use Zotero as a go between. You can copy the bibtex to the clipboard from Logos, push it as a new entry in Zotero, correct Logos' many many mistakes in their citations, and then actually keep track of/modify/etc. your citations. And they will even be properly formatted. You can even change the

    I have a simpler solution -- how about Logos just implements what I asked for in the first place? Russ

    [quote user="Aaron Baldridge"]I noticed this afternoon that when L7 updated it must have done something with the way that Logos copies into Word and PPT.

    When I copy from the latest Logos into the latest Word, I get a footnote. I could write a macro that copies out any links found in the footnote and reformats the cite and the url into a single block of text, but -- what about when I'm working in a software package that doesn't have footnotes, or embedded urls, at all? For instance, I am often asked

  • Re: So...what would make you buy more books from Logos?

    1. A software development team and company that actually listens to customer concerns, and addresses them, rather than simply saying "you don't know what you're talking about." 2. A way to actually make Logos work with outside note taking software, such as OneNote, without needing to go through hoops to make it work. In fact, this would be preferable

  • Re: Any progress on automatic hyperlinking

    What I asked for was this. On the list of possible citation types, add an option that says, "add url to citation." This is close to what you've implemented, but it's not the same thing. Instead of having the url pushed as an embedded link, have it pushed as an actual piece of text that will show up when you do a "text only" paste into a document. Right
