Fr Devin Roza:
As Kiyah mentioned, these are not scripted, but they are based on a detailed outline which we developed for the entire series before filming any of them. Doing it that way was a conscious decision, and the feeling of someone sitting across the desk from you explaining the software is what we were looking for! Obviously each style has its advantages and disadvantages. This is also the first time we are doing this style, so I'm sure we have a lot to learn too. Smile

I figured this was the case, and agree that there are benefits and drawbacks to each approach. Hopefully no offense was taken, I just wanted to highlight that the videos were different from what people would be used to with Verbum training before they purchased anything.

Fr Devin Roza:
When the videos are on YouTube they'll include the new YouTube chapter divisions inside of each video, which will allow you to easily navigate to the part of the video that interests you, or skip to the next section of the video whenever you like. Hopefully people will find that useful!

Awesome! That would be really helpful.

Awesome, thank you!

Thanks to FL for including Carta and a Hebrew audio bible in Logos 9!

Donald, thank you for all you do!

I for one really like the more "kicked-back" approach by Fr Devin and Fr Andrew in these videos. I would also like to thank them for all they do to help us get the most out of Verbum.

Thanks to you all!

I also appreciate the more informal delivery, and I especially enjoy a background that is not just a  wall of white. These videos feel and look much more natural and comfortable to me. As 2020 rolled along and many of us changed our work style and setting, less formal just fits well. ;)

Thank you Fr, Devin, Fr. Andrew, Donald, and Verbum.  These videos are great.  I didn't realize there was so much packed into the program and I started with V6.  Good stuff!

What's strange to me is that "Logos 9 Update" presently appears in the resource title of this Verbum 9 training resource... Oops!

Thank you for having fixed this, Verbum elves!

I just finished the last of the videos! These are really excellent. I have used Logos/Verbum a long time yet I picked up a tip or two in every session, and the review was excellent as the material was presented very effectively!

One small aggravation in the last video, on Personal Books - one of the last things Fr. Devin did was edit the .docx file, to show how to Build again to make changes. I noticed he just pointed to the Build button, and did not do it - which I am guessing, is because it would have errored out! I have found for years, once a Personal book is open, you cannot edit and rebuild it no matter what you do, until you close Verbum/Logos and reopen it - it actually generates an exception that shows up in the logs. I don't know why this bug has never been fixed. But it is what it is. Caveat emptor - beware when editing your personal books!

Glad they were helpful!

During the preparations I rebuilt the book many times, without issues. I also just tested again now, and it rebuilt just fine. I didn't rebuild it in the video just to make the video a little shorter. If you are encountering this bug, I suggest you open up a new thread here on the forum to try to get it fixed! (BTW, there were actually one or two times in the filming where we slightly modified something we wanted to do because of a bug, just this wasn't one of them! Smile)

Thanks for the advice Fr. Devin! I can duplicate it every time, I am thinking it might be more powerful to video it with my phone. Maybe someone knows the best way to include a video here, as the file sizes are big ?
