I received the up dated file yesterday and noticed it had no Page numbers. Since this is a major Old Testament introduction, i would expect to find them. This was a B&H ebook title, perhaps its not finished yet?

I have this resource, but did not get an updated copy. However, there is something strange: My library says that it was last updated in 2019, but it does show as a "Logos Research Edition." Clearly it is not. Does your library show it as being updated yesterday? Did you own it through Wordsearch, or as a FLEB title?

It is not live on the website.

The resource information says it's a Logos Research Edition, but there are community tags (as well as the ISBN-like ID) that seem to indicate it used to be a former Vyrso/FLEB book that has been upgraded to a Logos edition of type OT introduction, with a bible index and subject field. This probably was a result of the WS conversion (B&H offered many books only as eBooks in the Logos universe).

No idea whether FL intends to add a page index, I personally am more pleased with the bible index it got, although this has very large chunks (after all it's an introduction, not a commentary).

Yes,

I had purchased this years ago in the faithlife ebooks. its a 560 page book and since its a book sure to be referenced by page numbers, I think it is a must have feature.

I'm becoming concerned at the conversion of ebooks by faithlife. its seems that there are way too many mistakes in the conversion process not being caught. Every week another title gets flagged as being under tagged, major typos and so forth. Logos demands a premium price for a premium tagged product, which most of the time we get.

But it seems that Faithlife is relying more and more on automated process in its flagship porduct and that is causing the problem.

We recently got new materials for this product and we've kicked off the process to add page milestones.
