Running Web App on ChromeOS. When I open the NET Bible First Edition (Noteless) resource, nothing I type in the scripture reference navigation window works. The text is accepted and displayed (e.g., "2 Cor 5:16"), but it does not navigate to that verse. So far, all other resources navigate fine. It doesn't matter if the NET Noteless is the default tab or a new tab. Navigating by the scrollbar works, but of course is tedious.

I'm able to reproduce this, and we will look into shortly. Thanks for letting us know!

I'm glad it's not like the noise in your car that won't happen when you take it to the mechanic!

I see a similar problem in Word Bible Commentary volume 38a (and perhaps others): But in this case, I can't even change the contents of the navigation window. No matter what I type, the text doesn't change at all.

The first issue of the reference navigation box not working on the NET Noteless resource should now be fixed.

Regarding the reference box not being editable in certain resources, user-input navigation is unfortunately currently limited to bibles. We plan to extend navigation to non-bible resources in the future. Until then, we've made changes so that the reference box is disabled on non-bibles, which should be less confusing.

Thanks again for reporting these issues!

Thank you. I have verified this working. I will report if that changes.

So, that means that commentaries, for example, can never be opened to a specific passage, right?  It looks like the only way right now to use a commentary is to manually scroll through every page until I get to the one I want.  I may have missed something, so forgive me if I have.  Effectively, doesn't that make the web app little more than a Bible viewer?  I realize that this is being worked on, and I'm very excited to see how it goes.  The web app was one of the main reasons that I signed up for Logos Now, but I didn't realize how much still remains to be implemented.  I like what I see so far, and it's a really exciting possibility!

As I wrote this, I tried something else--I opened a passage guide, and that gave me passage-specific links to various resources.  So, for now, at least that's a bit of a workaround.

The other work around is to link panels to a Bible, and then use that to get your other resource to the right passage.

Colby, how do you link the panels?

On each panel, click on the "Aa" button and choose the same letter to link, such as "A". Then navigate in the Bible panel to automatically bring the other panel to the desire passage (or close to it, at least).

Thanks!  I would not have thought to look for the links in the Aa button, because I just assumed that the only things I would find there would be concerning the fonts.  So, I was glad to find it when you pointed it out.  Unfortunately, the linkage does not seem to work.  Oh well...

This extremely limits the web app's usability. One thing I would like to be able to do with it is quickly consult non-Bible reference works without having to open the desktop program.

Also, you don't have a note about this anywhere on the app itself. The reference box is still there. It makes me feel foolish to have spent so much time clicking on the box and wondering why it's not working.

Reference navigation now works as expected. Let us know if there are any issues.

Thanks,

My initial experiences with this have been very positive. Thank you for getting this functional! For me, this is a great leap forward in the web apps' utility.

This no longer seems to work. Did something happen?

It appears to be working for me.


Could you explain the issue you are experiencing in more detail? Do you possibly have compatibility mode enabled?

That was indeed the problem. I didn't know there was such a thing. Thanks!
