Hi Karl

Use the download link in the A17 release notes, install and let it do its work.

How to get logs and post them. (now tagging post-apocalyptic fiction as current affairs)

Thanks, but I was wanting to avoid the hours of download and indexing. 

I hoped to just move the file from one to the other, but don't know how to identify all the required parts.

Thanks anyway.

Someone has written up instructions for how to do this on Windows (http://wiki.logos.com/Quick_Installation_onto_multiple_computers). Looks like it's time for someone to figure out and write up the procedure for Mac as well. I wouldn't be that person (I don't have a Mac). But surely there's someone out there who has done this... ??

I guess I'll be the brave mac....genius

1) Navigate to Users/<your home directory>/Library/ApplicationSupport/Logos 4

2) Copy the Logos 4 folder to an external drive with about 15-20 GB free (depends on the size of your library

3) Copy the Logos 4 App onto the new Mac from a fresh .dmg download from www.logos.com/logos4mac (to make sure you have the lastest version on the new machine)

4) Copy the Logos 4 folder from your external HD to the new computer's Users/<your username on the new machine>/Library/ApplicationSupport  folder

 

NOTE: Clicking on the sidebar icon with the house will take you to your home directory.  Make sure you do not look under your HD root directory--that library folder won't have the info you are looking for.

Would some user who understands wiki formatting care to copy the above tutorial onto the wiki?  I can't figure out how to make a subpage under Logos 4 Mac.

Awesome. Geeked I am adding this post as a favourite, as someday I'm sure I'll need it.

Thanks, Michael.

I've created a page for it http://wiki.logos.com/Quick_Installation_onto_Multiple_Macs

I've linked it in from the "Quick Installation onto multiple computers" page, as well as from the Mini Mac FAQ at the bottom of the Mac Overview page.

For future reference, to make a subpage linked in somewhere else, edit the page where you want to link it in, add a link to the as yet uncreated page using the following syntax:

[[Name of the New Page You Are Planning to Create]] (be sure to use a unique name not already used somewhere else in the wiki, and title it sensibly; you can search for existing pages to be sure it hasn't already been created, or something similar; maybe there already exists a similar page that you can link to and add your info)

Then click Save to save that change. You will now see a newly created link to your as yet non-existent page; it will be grey (instead of blue), which means the page doesn't exist yet. Click on that grey link, and you will be given the option to create a page by that name.
