Yes This is a great improvement - small but helpful!

Graham Criddle:

PJ:
This option is disabled on my Desktop version. Do I overlook something or does someone experience the same?

I do see this behaviour.

But if, for example, I select the "Data Type > Bible" in the Notes Tool facet filter then sorting by reference is enabled. This seems to be required even when all of the notes in a particular notebook are of the Bible data type. I don't remember seeing this restriction earlier in the beta process.

The RC1 release notes have:

"Reference sort is automatically applied when selecting the “Data Type” or “Bible Books” facet"

And I wonder whether this has resulted in a requirement to have one of these facets selected.

Hopefully Failthlife will comment further.

This is the case.

Hi Philana

Philana R. Crouch:
This is the case.

Does you mean that it's designed to work this way or that it's a bug?

If this is by design I really don't understand it!

Thanks, Graham

Agreed, if it is design, it just doesn't make since in real-world usage.

Thank you for the update, there seem to be some good improvements. In other news, a lot of shortcuts in the note editor are now broken. ctrl+. and other similar short-cuts no longer do anything in the notes editor. Phil mentioned that the idea is being tossed around right now regarding a possible future addition of styles that could be user editable (with user changeable shortcuts?), were these purposely removed for that reason? Or is this just a bug?

One thing that I noticed that was good, was the notification of what is downloading and being able to access the release notes straight from that menu. The only problem with it is that it does not want to go away. I have read it like a billion times and it there is no way (that I see) to get rid of it. Still three items in the beautiful little blue ball...

Also, does it seem like there is less space for the resources that a user can add into the upper right side of the program? It used to be that I only had trouble on my 13.3in laptop, but now even on my 24in monitor there is little to no space for my favorites when I have Logos relegated to half the screen (for editing in a word processor on the other half of my screen).

Scratch that... I didn't see "x" in the corner :).

A big thank you for the quick link to the release notes Big Smile

It's been frustrating to have to go looking for new updates since the update to version 8. The new layout is excellent.

So should I allow this download or not?  Based on the comments in this thread, it looks like I should avoid this one and wait for some more fixes.

My thanks to the various MVPs. Without them Logos would have died early. They were the only real help available.

Faithlife Corp. owes the MVPs free resources for life.

I don't see anything in this thread that would call for not downloading it. There are some new things that don't work as some of us expect but that isn't a reason to avoid it.

Were there particular things that concerned you?

"Added Previous/Next Annotations navigation buttons to resource panels."

This is my favorite feature in 8.3. I often read a book on the iPad app and highlight along the way, then come to the desktop software and jump from highlight to highlight to review the book in my mind. Sad to see earlier it was gone in 8.0. Happy to see that it is back Smile

It amazes me that everything FaithLife releases is bug infested. Sad

First, it is the nature of the software development world to have bugs. There will always be something that is found upon release. Always.  Second, I don't really see that many bugs in 8.3 so I am not sure "bug infested" is a fair characterization of this release.

Dear Forum,

Can anyone tell why I get this error each time I build a personal book and also a workaround to get the PB to build? This started with Logos update 8.3.

[Info] Starting build for PBB:f38af73345b148a5a05b3c9ae98fb085
[Error] Error while building book: Could not remove existing resource. Please close all other open panels and try again.

Thanks a bunch!

By the way. I closed all panels then opened the personal book tool and it still did not build the PB. Thanks

Update: I rebooted my Windows 8.1, ran Logos 8.3 with only the "Personal Books" panel open and then it worked. I think we may have a bug here.

Thanks for any input you have have. I have got to teach this Personal Book tomorrow and I am very glad to get it working. 

Have a great day!

Restarting Logos is the usual solution.

Dear Logos,

Thanks for fixing the personal book building error in version 8.4! It is working again and I am real glad.
