Logos format please, Vyrso is an inappropriate format for books like this Mattilo. You only need to read a few lines of the description of the book to understand this book would be a complete disaster in Vyrso format and will generate customer complaints.

"Visually stunning and theologically rich, this full-color resource brings together the latest scholarship and archeological discoveries to make God's dwelling places come alive for modern believers." 

That means we should expect lots of pictures, diagrams, charts etc throughout this book and if your know anything about Vysro, if you have followed the disaster that is books in Vyrso with illustrations then you would not suggest this book for Vyrso. It is a book, that if it is going to be of value in the Logos Bible Software that needs to be done properly with all scripture references correctly tagged, a fully functioning table of contents, page numbering (if publisher provides - and they should), and images that appear where they should without surrounding text missing or the image chopped up into pieces, and images that are tagged so that they show up in search results in the software and in media tools. What is the point of a 'visually stunning' resource when the only way we can find the images is to go through the book literally, page by page, in the hope  to find something useful, only to find it is chopped in half, it is sized incorrectly and we can not read the diagram or it's missing and so we never find it and never know it's missing unless someone sits down with a print copy and makes a page by page comparison,

Vyrso is fine for Amish Romance and other fiction, along with books of clean jokes etc or the latest fad diet based on the scriptures - if any of that takes your fancy - but it is not the appropriate format for a book of this nature.


Vyrso would turn this book from super interesting to Super Disappointing, if it didn't get stuck in the automatic book processing que for months before someone noticed.

Yes sir DOC... I could not agree with you more. I posted this in the logos suggestion forum as well as emailed it in. Just trying to cover all bases. I figure if not logos then vyrso is better than nothing and can hope for a future conversion
