Good news and bad news!

I have found the clickable images of the Tabernacle and Temple, but as suspected, they have downgraded in Logos 4 through 8.

They are part of the Logos Deluxe Map Set! They used to show seamlessly in 3D fashion with Libronix, now they're just click here and a separate image shows up without the 3D effect that it used to have under Libronix.  Before, even hovering would bring up a close up image, now it doesn't do that.  Is there anyway these visuals could have better integration with Logos 8?  Some old maps have "click here to enlarge image" and a separate pop up window shows up, but it's clunky looking.  Under libronix they used to show better.  Anyway, I hope these and other infographics can be polished sometime soon (Logos 9 maybe?).  I guess I can sleep now.

Libronix DLS didn't support animations in resources; they were just static images.

It's essentially the same in Logos 8 as it was in Libronix DLS AFAICT. The main difference is that clicking an arrow/number navigates to a new image in Logos 8, whereas it displayed in a popup window in LDLS3.

That didn't seem to work for me.

The image I posted is an animated GIF screencast. It looks like you might need to click it in order to see the screencast.

Congrats. I had the 3D Logos Bible Atlas.

But I benefitted from your quest. I didn't know Bibleworks has a nice customizable map (like Accordance?). And also the funny timeline showing where Shem could have taught Isaac priest duties (since Isaac was helping sacrifice himself ... jewish accounts).

Yes, Bradley!

Now, do you think you can add that functionality to the sermon editor; So we can insert images to our outlines and then have them come up in a pop up window that zooms in and out when we click on them? This would be helpful when presenting directly from the screen instead of sending a slide to PowerPoint and then proclaim.

I’ve been asking for this functionality for years now.  As a result, I’ve had to use Accordance’s “Paper” (sermon editor) to present from my screen since you can add pictures to the sermon outline and then click on them and they will come up in a pop up window to zoom it in or out for people to see when you use a projector.

This and other functionalities mentioned here would make the sermon editor the king of sermon editors in the entire universe!  Here’s the link for the Ultimate Sermon Editor request: https://community.logos.com/forums/t/186839.aspx 

Thanks!

What I really wish is that such images were fully capable of being edited. There are many Faithlife slides that I'd love to use in my teaching, but there full of too much information and cannot be removed, so I can point students to a specific aspect. So for example, make it possible for every stop on Paul's missionary journeys to be edited.

I was looking for a map the other day and the Atlas tool was a waste of time, there was no map showing what I was interested in seeing on a map. I found something in the older Biblical Places Maps for which the Atlas was supposed to be an improvement, and also another useful map in the ESV Study Bible right alongside the passage I was reading. I rarely open the Atlas and my experience reinforced that it is not the best option for maps.

That said the maps I found had too much information so I understand your frustration in trying to find useful material for teaching purposes Ted.

This is what I have been asking for for years...to no avail. Sad Maps are definitely the weakest link in Logos. For those of us who teach, visuals are so important and we need to be able to adapt the maps. Like Ted said.

We should be able to have a map and then choose sites to be added to that map for a lecture/discussion. Other software has been doing this for years. I don't know why Logos hasn't.

I can give another example, since I experienced it recently. I was teaching on Jonah and wanted to show the direction of his disobedient travel. The "Jonah's Travel" map was excellent. It showed a directional map of all the movement in Jonah. It showed the location of both Nineveh and Tarshish. But again, it had too much information on one slide. The first slide needs to serve as a key with all the necessary information. Go ahead and jam pack that slide. Then, the succeeding slides need to break down and specify particular moments in the story. Or, give us the chance to edit it ourselves for our particular purposes.

I agree. I rarely use the Atlas. I, too, like to use them and other visuals for teaching purposes. 

The old Logos 2.0 Atlas was far superior then the new one. As I have asked over the years, please bring back an atlas like 2.0 that can be fully customized and allow for 3D rendering.

Just for old times sakes. I was curious about the interplay of Jonah 'going down' to Joppa, as regards the hebrew. Below is Logos Atlas 2.0 (my PC offline; pictures).

1. Selecting a choice of possible maps to use:

2. Software clearly highlighting the desired location. Editing choices to the right.

3. A feel for 'going down', choosing Gath, looking south to Joppa:

This updated with image quality would be the ultimate Bible Atlas tool and runs rings around the current Atlas tool that FL offers.  I had this and the Parsons PC Bible Atlas.  It's a shame that these programs got left behind in the move from 16bit to 32bit computing.

Accordance has something similar where you can crop a map and it’ll show on 3D just the piece you want to show 👍😁👌

Please, FL, your customers want better graphics and are practically offering to pay, why haven’t you done anything to improve this? Why are your ears deaf and your eyes blind to this request?

Please, listen, it’s been years we’ve been asking for better graphics 🤦🏻‍♂️
