I really like the multiple resources feature. For those with large libraries the dropdown selecting which resources to include is extensive.

I would suggest that the commentaries be included by series, not book so multiple sets would change within the series automatically. This would shorten the list considerably as well as make the feature work when changing passages.

Keep up the good work as this is a very helpful additional feature.

This was my suggestion too! For now, you should be able to hit the checkbox for each of the books in the series. They will only appear when valid for the current navigation position.

You can see here that the tab title indicates that 3 commentaries are configured for viewing, but only one of those is currently visible.

Strange. I downloaded the beta and the Multiple Resources option is not available to me.

It is only available to Logos Now subscribers? Are you participating in that programme?

Andrew, can we have a popup showing us the name of the resource.

Yes. It's on my list of things to get done before the release. I'll likely make the popup a little wider too.

Multiple Resources, great feature, Thanks!

When I have three resources ESV Study Bible, Reformation Study Bible and MacArthur Study Bible - I can only highlight the first resource ESV Study Bible.  Anyone else have the same experience?

Thanks,

I already had a set of 3 open so I tested to make sure but I was able to highlight the 3rd resource using a box (see below). I don't have the Reformation Study Bible so I was not able to try you exact setup but it certainly shows that any of the text should be able to be highlighted while they are side by side.

I created the same layout as yours and can highlight all 3 resources, however, this is using 6.6 SR1 for Mac, not the beta. My beta desktop is not available currently.

Thanks,

I can reproduce this. At first, I thought it might have been that the guest resources had the visual filter for your highlights disabled. But I think we fixed that issue so guest resources inherit the visual filter settings of the host resource.

I'm not able to highlight in the guest resources using my keyboard shortcuts. I am, however, able to highlight using the highlighting panel. I'll report this to the team.

Phil, thanks for the response.  I like you can highlight using the panel but not the keyboard shortcuts.  

Look forward to the fix.

I really like this feature, especially being able to see the English + Hebrew / Greek NT easily, taking up only 2 columns.

My only real "I wish it had this" so far has been being able to add in the LXX to that mix, so that books which don't have a Hebrew text (i.e. the deutorocanonicals and apocrypha) could appear in the LXX, while always using only 2 columns.

I know that scheme doesn't quite fit into the way it works currently, but I wonder if it might be able to work once Series are supported. It's possible to create a series with LHB + LXX + NA28, for example, although I'm not quite sure how possible it is to make LHB always preferred over LXX when it's available. This type of schema could allow for great flexibility, so if someone wanted to use BHQ + BHS + LXX + NA28, for example, they could do so, with the highest prioritized resource in the series appearing, based on what's available.

Another way to do this would be for a Bible to be produced which is the LHB + Logos LXX, with the LXX only available for those books which are not in the LHB.

So glad this can be fixed, since I only highlight using shortcuts, I just assumed you couldn't highlight guest resources, I never even tried to do it manually. Even though I love the tool, highlighting capability is essential for me. Can't wait for this addition. Thanks Phil

Right. It's the "while always using only 2 columns" requirement where this strategy runs aground. Multiview configurations are independent, so one thing you can do is to open two copies of the translation panel, one with a configuration of Hebrew+Greek NT, and one with a configuration of LXX+Greek NT. It will require switching between tabs, but only uses 2 columns.
