MAYBE THIS IS NOT THE PLACE, BUT I DO WISH THAT FAITHLIFE WOULD CORRECT SO MANY ERRORS IN PRODUCTS BROUGHT OVER, FOR EXAMPLE DAILY LIGHT ON DAILY PATH DEVOTIONAL IS OT THE SAME VERSION OF THE WORK, EVERY PAGE HAS LINKS THAT DO NOT WORK, AND THERE IS NO MORNING AND EVENING DEVOTIONS, ONLY ONE, DATES ARE NOT USED ETC., THIS IS NOT THE SAME PRODUCT AS WORDSEARCH, AS A LONG TIME LOGOS USE I AM DISAPPOINTED.  I WAS HAPPY AT THE MERGE, NOW I WISH IT NEVER HAPPENED.  THANKS FOR LISTENING

Welcome to the forums. Please come frequently and ask questions. To hear the words pronounced in a Bible, right click on the word, select lemma on the left and speaker on the right:

I took a sabbatical for a year and a half and when I opened my wordsearch lo and behold I was surprised to discover soon after that Lifeway sold everything to Faithlife and I didn't even know! Now I cannot download what I already owned. What I had in resources was migrated to logos with now way to check if all migrated successfully at 100%. 

Now I am finding all the functions I am used to I cannot find or do in Logos, the more expensive software which I always coined, "The wealthy pastor's bible software". 

Carousel feature is when I scroll through the scripture 'everything' in my layout would scroll with it. For example I used 5 panes. Logos has a max of 4.

Here's what the main four looked like:

In the Top Left corner was all my cross referencing resources. Just below was all my favorite dictionaries. 

In the Top Right was the Scripture with tabs for all my favorite English and Greek versions. Just below in the Bottom Right was the commentary section with tabs of all my most used commentaries. 

HERE'S HOW IT WORKED:

When I scroll through the scripture all the commentaries and cross references scrolled with it. Any commentary that didn't write anything about that verse quickly vanished only showing which ones did. 

It appears that I now have to pay MORE and MORE money to have the features I used to have, or worse...do without even if I was a wealthy enough person to afford it. Wordsearch was basically a "ministry" of LIfeway to pastors. It was inexpensive an affordable. They probably didn't really make much at all. What a blessing! 

What does our Lord Jesus have to say to Lifeway and to Faithlife (aka MoneyLIfe) if he were writing them a letter like he did the seven churches of Asia Minor?

"Nevertheless, I have this against you..."

Shame on the wealthy owner of Faithlife who could do SO much more for ministers of the gospel of grace!

I want the carousel function feature that was in Wordsearch. If you have never used Wordsearch than you might not be familiar with its functions. Has Faithlife considered offering an experienced Wordsearch user or trainer to help them understand what has been lost to us?

I created 5 window panes in my layout. There were no maximum panes in Wordsearch or how you laid out your columns as there is in Logos. 

Once you configured your layout you could continue to save multiple layouts. Now comes the most important part:

As a WS user scrolled through the scripture pane all their commentaries, cross reference panes, etc would scroll or carousel with the scripture. If there was not an entry by a commentary for that particular verse then that tab would vanish and reappear when it did. 

For the life of me, I cannot find a way to do this in logos and I was able to study much faster and deeper this way without constantly changing resources. Also I can't simply choose an entire commentary set for a tab...I have to select which volume rather than have all my favorites loaded in tabs which simply appeared as you scrolled through the scripture. 

I just can see that in logos yet. It's easy to talk about the "greatness" of Logos when you have only been a Logos user and have never experienced Wordsearch. I could also do an inline search of my entire library and perhaps I can here to but when I did it in WS each resource opened in a new tab in the "appropriate" window pane in my layout.

I didn't even know this migration and acquisition took place until last weekend and it appears that Faithlife (aka Moneylife) doesn't seem to care to give me an exe of my purchased WS10 and 11 but have already shutdown the servers for them. Just wonderful! I am sure Jesus is just ecstatic over how this transition has taken place especially that most of the WS users are not mega pastors with mega salaries who can afford the "exorbitant" prices that faithlife charges for its resources while LIfeway was more of a "ministry" to pastors making it very, very affordable. 

I would simply call my salesman, text him personally, email him anytime night or day and he would sell what I wanted for even less than the sale price on the WS website which was always 1/3 to 2/3 cheaper than logos was charging and as always your personal sales person would thrown in some free resources with EVERY purchase!! Very loving people and located in the U.S. in Nashville. Now I talk to people in Mexico who the owner has put to work in place of the all the U.S citizens out of work right now. 

Wow! I'm very upset if you couldn't tell.

Most of what you want is available in Logos. It is just a matter of learning where and how. To get panels to scroll together see: Link Sets – Logos Help Center See Parallel Resource Sets – Logos Help Center for the carousel for commentaries. Every time you get stuck, come to the forums - you'll get 7/24 help. However, "insulting" those of us who have always used Logos is not the best way to get helpful answers from me - yes, I recognize it is just frustration but before my first cup of coffee?? I don't know how you got someone other than Bellingham or Arizona.

Hi Mark. Yes I can tell. I was both a WS and Logos user and had a fair amount invested in both products. I agree, the learning curve is much steeper in Logos than it was in WS. It takes some time to make the transition. Morris proctor has some good trainings and although they are on subscription basis you could subscribe for one month and then decide from there. LearnLogos also has good trainings. The folk here on the forums are very helpful. I have discovered that it works much better on the forum if I ask just one question in a post. I get more pointed suggestions and there are usually more replies to my posts. In terms of Logos provided training Wiki and Logos Features are a good place to start. One of the things I liked about WS was the online trainings, they weren't just videos to watch. We could register for a training and attend it with a few other WS users where we could ask questions. I took advantage of that numerous times. I would like to see something like that in Logos where new users could connect with more experienced users in online trainings on Zoom or some other platform. I think that would make the transition a lot easier.

You can setup Logos to be similar, but Logos is missing some valuable Wordsearch features.

  • Bible window could be designated as a group’s “Driver” that sent sync messages but didn't change if other windows changed.
  • Carousel would just skip next commentary if there was no content instead of changing reference.
  • Home button on Carousel let you quickly return to your top priority commentary set

I'm hoping some of this code makes it into the next version.

Ok, 1st let's get our terminology sorted out.

In WordSearch the feature that allowed two resources to track with each other is NOT the carousel but Groups. Logos calls this Link Sets.

See the Pictures below. Link Sets function in the same way as Groups do in WS. The difference is that WS would automatically place a newly opened resource in to a group set by default. Logos does not assume that you want this and has you assign each resource to a link set if you want them linked. In WS if you did not want them linked you had to turn the group off.

 

The carousel feature in WS allowed you to toggle between similar type resources (using the mouse or the L-R arrow keys) without having to have multiple tabs opened.

As MJ pointed out in her response to you Logos uses Parallel Resources to do this. Follow the link MJ supplied to learn how to do this.

You also asked..."Has Faithlife considered offering an experienced Wordsearch user or trainer to help them understand what has been lost to us?"

The Main Menu at Logos.com has a section for WordSearch.

If you open that page and scroll just a bit you will see training mentioned.

There is a link that will take you to Morris Proctor's web site. He is the Official trainer for Logos.

He put together several hours of training for WordSearch users to transition to Logos. You have to register on his site but I believe that the training for former WS users is still free.

here is the link if you cant fine it. https://www.logos.com/wordsearch-webinars 

This takes you to a Logos page. The link for M.P. Seminars is at the bottom of that additional page. I have watched the training and it is not bad. It does not cover every thing but it gets you started. 

three recorded training sessions 

You then stated "I created 5 window panes in my layout. There were no maximum panes in Wordsearch or how you laid out your columns as there is in Logos."

There is NO limit to the number of panes that you can have open in Logos See my example below. What you do not see in that image is that I also had a floating window open on a second monitor. So that would make a total of 7 panes.

Concerning the old WS servers. Faithlife kept them up and going for at least a full year. 

Concerning the WS staff, I know of at least two salesmen who now work for Faithlife. One of which was my former contact at WS.

Concerning the pricing and "Free" stuff. Logos does a far more extensive job at tagging (putting multiple links to other mentioned resources not just links to Bible verses) than WS ever did. This additional work results in added value and a higher price reflects this. 

And for the discounts and "Free" stuff. For every "Discount" and "Free Resource" (and yes I received my fair share of them as well) the salesman gave out meant that that was money that WS did not receive. Money that "May" have helped to keep them afloat and in business. You can't sell your product at cost or keep giving it away for free and expect to stay in business.

Faithlife does give away free books every month. Logos, Verbum, and Faithlife all three do. They also offer books every month at greatly reduced pricing on their free book of the month web pages.

Take some time, take some training, and you will come to see that the switch to Logos IS a good thing.

I'm a ex WordSearch user... Believe me, I understand the frustration of having our "favorite" Bible tool and one that I was very comfortable with and loved... closed down and then me being "pushed" into Logos.... which is overwhelming .... with a learning curve straight up a 20 foot wall.

The learning curve... the not knowing anything... the pricing shock... and then trying to get things done that I had to get done drove me up the proverbial wall. I finally took a deep breath... kept my studies in WordSearch as my main "go to" Bible program and then started working in Logos to learn this monster.

I remember when I first got WordSearch... I remember it was frustrating at first. But WordSearch was more simplistic in it's approach... and because of that did not have a 20 foot steep wall of learning curve. But I still had to learn it.... and that took me some time....

WordSearch will eventually fade into the sunset. We can't stop that. We can fight it, as I first tried to do, but bottom line... WordSearch will fade. I think there will come a time.. .when WordSearch will not work. It may be Windows 11 or one of the updates....

Truth... I have worked hard the past year to learn Logos. I have spent probably too many hours reading the forums... asking google... asking people on the forum.. probably being a nuisance... but in the process.... I am now becoming comfortable with Logos and now it is my "goto" Bible program. And I don't think Logos is going to "fade off to the sunset" at least not for a long while.

My suggestion is....  be patient... pray about it (it never hurts to ask God for help)... don't be cruel or mean to the people on the forum as they will help you, and start working ONLY with Logos as you can. Look up how to do things you want to do in Logos.... view the videos...there are lots of free ones in YouTube.com....(I didn't subscribe to videos like others did so it probably took me longer to learn.) Also, ask questions in the forums...The question you have, others may have also. But in the end... I think you will learn to love the flexibility that Logos has with all the different ways it has of finding stuff....

And last... as you will learn... you have a world of people that are eagerly waiting to help you.

Mark, many of your impressions/assumptions have been shared by other WordSearch (WS) users.

If one desires a richer understanding, he/she may check out https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WORDsearch#History I owned WS and QuickVerse (QV) before they were acquired by Lifeway. Both of these Software packages have a history of an UNSUSTAINABLE business model and when they were doomed to closure, another party offered to acquire the resources and userbase in order to change it into something SUSTAINABLE. As someone who has participated in these acquisitions since the mid 1980's, I believe it is important to realize WS and QV have a history of going on "life support" and being rescued by another company with larger assets. There may be a subtle difference, but (having been a user of these programs for decades) Faithlife is NOT the bad guy who is shutting down competitors! WS was bound to be shut down because of its unprofitable business model!! AS AN ACT OF GOODWILL (and at what I assume to be considerable risk of capital) Faithlife offered to rework the WS resources into their business model that would be sustainable after the date that WS would have been shuttered and rendered useless (e.g. Lifeway retail stores).

I'm thankful the Faithlife provides this forum that is MOSTLY contributed by volunteer users of the software to help new users transition to effective use of this tool for the expansion of Christ's kingdom.

Hi Thomas. Thank you very much for taking the time to reply to me with the detail and interest.

I did take up your offer, my brother, and so that Wikipedia had to say was a history off how WS came to me. All that it says about Lifeway is that they acquired it and later sold it. Everything you said about the "business model" seems to get your own invention and assumptions. 

Listen Thomas... It only makes sense that you would come to the defence of Logos being such a long time, avid, and loyal user of Logos and have contributed much money to your library, most likely, through the years. BUT... That doesn't make you right anymore than two Christians who argue, using scripture, about their doctrinal belief of salvation.

Anyone who hasn't used WS for the same length of time and with the same depth of knowledge as they have logos can't tell a WS user how much better logos is anymore than someone who had only fly fished all his life but knows a few features about deep sea fishing can tell someone about deep sea fishing and how it's a bad model and how much better fly fishing is because, after all, they've done it for so long. 

I know logos users, automatically "feel" that logos is superior to WS and most logos users I've encountered somehow seen to know why although they have not used logic as extensively, albeit there are a handful.

My "beef" is more with the moral issues with this exchange. Outside you should look up the owner of logos and his income. Lifeway had a very successful business for all things lifeway and are one of the largest, if not then largest online Christian bookstore and have other successful subsidiary ventures. I don't think they sold out because they were failing as you have assumed. But wait! I'm assuming to, right? Yes! But I'm doing what we can in theology and hermeneutics a "safe assumption".  For example: Abraham and Lot went to together to the city of Sodom and then the scripture tells us Abraham left and went back to the place from which he left with Lot. Next thing you know Lot and Abraham are talking on that place almost immediately after. Safe assumption: Abraham and Lot left Sodom together although the scripture only mentions Abraham. Much like one gospel mentions more two angels at Jesus tomb and another gospel writer to only mentions one, etc.

I'm very happy for you Thomas, that you love logos so very much and how's much is helped you. I am learning it and will have to learn it. 

However, i will always know that they owner of logos did not do what he "could" have done for WS users and lifeway is guilty of the same thing. I purchased this software. I should be able to just it. I don't believe Jesus sees it any different than me. All the cattle that lifeway and the sole logos owner have is NOT theirs. It's God's and i don't believe God thinks it's OK million dollar lined pockets to decide whether i get to continuev using what i purchased with God's money and choose to replace it the way they did. I believe lifeway is godly enough that if logos wouldn't have purchased it they would have kept a server running out found someone to fit so the WS owners. They wouldn't have left us in the cold. They've been extremely loving and kind always and have served pastors of all salary sizes getting poor to rich. Not so with logos. 

Remember, the story Nathan told David?

Thanks again Thomas. I love you and pray God's continued blessings.

Mark

Please consider that I owned WordSearch and used it for 15 years BEFORE I ever tried Logos. My experience is no more/less authoritative than any other user. I simply assert that my pleasure with Logos is more than a "feel" and any "loyalty" is not because of the amount of money, but rather the experience of using both, experiencing the stability of one business model that has endured, AND experiencing another business model that forced ownership transitions.

I'm not trying to inspire any loyalty on your part to this product. I can deduce that your experience with the transition from one platform to another has been (continues to be?) difficult. I have admired the journey of XNMAN (a person whom I have never met apart from this forum), who was not pleased with the forced transition, but chose to assume the best intentions of others and has found joy in current study tools.  I'm simply trying to say that in my experience, WS lived out the repercussions of its business model.

Blessings to you in your study of God's precious Word and both of our conformity to the image of Christ.

I agree with you, David. I've owned WordSearch since its inception and have quite a library. I purchased Logos a little while later and have had the program for well over 10 years. I've found Logos exceeded WordSearch in the overall program. I can't even begin to list what areas excel, there are so many. I very much appreciated the fact that all my books in WordSearch are being incorporated into Logos. That, in itself, is an enormous task. Logos has been a blessing to me. They have made available to me resources and the ability to glean, from a huge array of books, information that would have taken me weeks, if not longer, to gather from printed books. I found that I was able to gather specific resources that were not available to me in WordSearch (e.g. Reformed Books/Commentaries). I like the ZipScript feature in WordSearch, and would like that incorporated into Logos. The copy verse application in Logos is not the same. ZipScript maintains its proper format when you insert a verse in a bulleted point. Both the heading and the verse stay within the margins and within the bullet point. Not so, with Logos. The Passage Guide shows Commentaries specific to the verse or verses you are referencing. When you reference a Scripture verse, WordSearch will populate all the Commentaries that mentions that verse. You can look at one commentary and see where it appears many times in the Old and New Testament that has a mention of the verse you referenced. That would be a great option in Logos. You can "sort of" do that same thing by going to Collections, but it's not the same by far. In Collections, you have to choose from many types of Commentaries, instead of them all appearing under one tab like WordSearch. I'm a WordSearch and Logos user, and I find Logos to be harder to learn but superior.

I had noticed your comment on this in another thread and waited for someone more knowledgeable than I to comment, because it appears (to my limited knowledge) to be very simple. When you create a Guide do you have the option highlighted in yellow - all commentaries? My passage guide contains both a section of all commentaries and various sections for collections of types of commentaries (blue highlights). If the "more" button slows you down I believe that can be adjusted in the "settings" - searching more than 10 at a time will slow down the search but the ability to see "all" may be worth a tradeoff in search speed for you.

Thank you for clarifying! I see where my observation is not relevant to your request. If I understand correctly, you are hoping for wherever a commentary has a 1. main section, 2. a cross reference, or 3. a footnote that speaks to your search.
