One hole in the Logos product line that I've never understood: a Lessonmaker product such as Wordsearch had. That one eventually included the IVP Lifeguide Studies (of which I wrote two, Christian Community and Ten Commandments Big Smile). I realize there is a defunct Logos product that Morris Proctor maintains, but is not supported technically by Logos (if I have all my facts straight).

I would imagine I'm not the only one who would like to have a quick question resource for each part of the Bible. I lead a weekly inductive Bible study group, and I can always write my own good questions, but it would be nice to have that done by the program. We could also use these questions for our own personal study, and even to help put a practical focus on sermons.

I've been curious as to why Logos hasn't had an interest in including something like this.

Logos 4 has a new Lesson Maker feature (Handouts).  Thomas Black has one or two minor concerns (cough cough) but this is going to be their new lesson making solution integrated into L4.  With some tweaking, it will be very convenient and useful.

Thomas Black:

I read those posts again, but they didn't mention a problem I had yesterday. I decided to give handouts a try again, and opened one for editing from a Passage Guide on Ephesians 6:14. Not bad for one verse, actually.

I did a bit of changing of content and went to print, but it cut off part of the page, when printing as a booklet. I thought, well, I need to change the print margins. But I can't find where to do this. I have an HP printer, they are known for needing about .6" on the bottom (or right, when in landscape). The booklet seemed to print out at about .25" all around.

It seems to me that when we get printing working for more parts of L4, we're going to need some ability to set margins as well.

One other thing I noticed is that when printing images with text (on the handout) the text comes out quite poorly -- as if it's printing with a fairly low DPI. That may be a printer issue, but I wanted to report it. I'd hate to have to change my printing quality just for this program, if there is another way to force graphics to print at a higher resolution.

Joe,

Help me out here.  Where is this new feature of "Lesson Make"?  I haven't been able to locate it.

Thanks, Mark Martin

Sorry I was not clear.

Handouts is the L4 replacement for Lesson Maker.  I used Lesson Make a lot over the years and realize it is not a direct replacement.  I am simply drawing your attention to the Handout feature in case you had not noticed it.

Lessonmaker is an add-in type of programs that has pre-created discussion questions on every part of the Bible. Thanks, but that's a far cry from the Handout feature. I'm not even sure how these two things can be discussed together, other than they both have something to do with leading study of the Bible (as does every part of Logos.) But again, thanks.

I'm still hoping for a question-based addition to Logos at some point.

I have the old IVP/Logos Lesson Builder on CD, . Does anyone know if this will work on my Windows 7, 64 bit computer?

Thanks, Georgia

I don't think so. I have it too. If I remember my problem, it's that LessonMaker is a 16bit program and Windows7 64 can't install 16bit programs.
