  • Re: Please stop pushing NT Wright

    [quote user="CharlyG"] N T Wright has gone off the rails and is no longer orthodox. Stop making him seem like the be all and end all of authors. His views on Paul and penal substitution are absolute heresy. Wretched has a couple of videos with MacArthur and Johnson pointing out just a few errors. He may have been orthodox in his earlier writings, but

    I picked up James and Jude because I like David A deSilva. I picked up John because it seems like a different approach. https://cruxsolablog.com/2011/11/09/review-of-jo-ann-brants-john-commentary-paideia/ We will see if they are worth it.

    [quote user="Sean"] My laptop, which is my main system, has both an onboard (wimpy) Intel graphics chip and a separate Nvidia GeForce card with 4GB of memory. HOWEVER, I'm 99.5% sure software does not run on the Nvidia unless it's a program recognized by the card's driver. Everything else defaults to the Intel chip. I know of no way to force Logos to

    [quote user="Sean"] +1 to this, and also the response of "just buy better hardware, especially an SSD." There have been noticeable improvements with 8, and overall I find it quite useable, but let's not kid ourselves that the program isn't sluggish at practically every point. My laptop can run fairly demanding games without lag, but there's still quite

  • Re: The future of Logos: is it fast?

    I believe logos is built on Microsoft WPF, a good choice, but it can be sluggish on lower end machines. If you are having performance issues the best way to see improvements is to upgrade your hardware. Add more memory, fast processor, faster drive, and a good graphics card, or buy a better machine. logos is only slow for me when I have a lots of commentaries

    [quote user="Mark"] [quote user="Armin"]My main criticism of Logos is its usability. The search functionality has significantly improved but if I need to find something quickly, I still use Google to search the Internet. Then when I gathered more information, I go back to Logos. Google just seems to know what I am looking for by just typing in a few

    [quote user="Doc B"] Every once in a while, we have a fun discussion around here on how permanent our (sometimes outrageously expensive) Logos purchases are.

    This might seem negative, but it is not intended that way. I question some of the things that you throw development resources at and wonder if there isn't a bit too much bloat at Faithlife. Do we really need a web version of the software? I have never used it and probably never will. Desktop and mobile, yes. On a similar note, I tried to use the Sermon

I have to edit each individual highlight and move it over to the Tim Keller notebook. Am I missing something? Is there a way to set it up on my iPad like I have it

    [quote user="Josiah"] Today I was hearing from someone about seminary programs designed so you only have to be physically present for a small amount of time and complete the rest remotely. So for example a working person could use vacation for the on-location parts and do the bulk remotely. I plan to follow up with the person I was talking with as well

  • Re: Is Logos 8 an improvement?

    Yes. Speed, cleaner UI, notes, and I even like Canvas (I thought it would be useless when I first saw it). It is actually quite stable considering the changes. Logos did a good job on the rollout. Whiners are gonna whine.

Hide and show the menu several times as you look closely at the position of the faint border. Look at it with the resource in a different position or a different resource. I
