I just did a Factbook search on euthanasia, and was somewhat surprised to find that, for a very current debate, it returned virtually no results. I then did a "Heading Text" search of all resources, and found a lot of good references. Being the helpful sort of person I am Wink I decided to put some useful information into the feedback box. I typed a bit, and it went beyond the edge of the box, so the text isn't wrapping, making it very difficult to enter text. I then tried putting a return at the end of the line to wrap the text and that didn't work either. Also Logos resource links don't format as links in the box, but that's probably a very minor issue. I'm on 6.1 SR-1.

So, there's a word wrapping bug, a carriage return bug and a bit of a content issue here: if the Factbook is to be useful, it does need to be populated with some of the key texts on a subject (or even "sorry, this topic hasn't been covered yet in Factbook". Actually the Topic Guide hardly has anything either. Otherwise, the tools will lose credibility. This will be particularly true for those who don't use Logos all the time, and who turn to Factbook to get information for a Bible Study, house group meeting, etc. They are the users who will also be less likely to know how to search in a way that reduces the amount of "noise" in the results.

I tried this on 6.1 SR1 and WIndows 8.1 and wrapping and carriage returns work fine.

I wonder if this is a Mac-specific issue. Can any other Mac user confirm please?

All three confirmed.

Thanks MJ - I'd forgotten I ever raised it in the first place!

Both of these issues are fixed in 6.3.
