Logos 4.0a Release Candidate 2 is now available for testing. We believe this version is stable enough to install and use as your primary version of the software.

We are actively working on the features listed at http://www.logos.com/4/missingfeatures; the features that are not included in this update did not meet our stability or performance criteria for being included in 4.0a.

New Features

  • Search Analysis grid in Bible and Morph searches (to access it, click "Analysis" next to "Grid | Verses | Aligned" after running a search)
  • Bible Text Only visual filter (to access it, use the "Visual Filters" button in the toolbar of any Bible)
  • Ctrl+Alt+B opens Copy Bible Verses from any Windows application (if Logos 4 is running; use Program Settings to customize)
  • Help > Explain the screen
  • Index Merging reduces the time it takes to build a full library index when adding new books
  • Redesign of the Cited By tool
  • More Highlighting styles (listed in Tools > Highlighting)
  • New look for Topics and Important Words in Passage Guide
  • Ctrl+H opens History
  • Added Visual Bookmarks and Resource Panel Background settings (in Program Settings panel)
  • Home Page ribbon can be customized (click "Customize" in the bottom-left of the home page)
  • Improved performance in many areas of the application

Major Bug Fixes

  • Copy Bible Verses can copy multiple verses
  • Parallel resource navigation wraps around from the end of the list to the beginning
  • Explorer (previously “Bible Explorer”) remembers closed sections
  • Default font size is properly applied to new notes
  • Added hit counts to concordance results in Bible Word Study sections with a ring graph.
  • OpenText clause analysis shows glossary tooltips for nodes
  • Bible Word Study guides are case-insensitive
  • Bibliographic citation in Clippings uses the default format from Program Settings
  • Fixed bugs in picking a single part of speech in the Morph Picker
  • Hebrew untransliteration supports standard punctuation (e.g., apostrophe for aleph)
  • Added “set custom chrome to no” command to work around problems with window resizing or black title bars

Minor Bug Fixes

  • Lots and lots

 

To install it, download and run http://downloads.logos.com/LBS4/InstallerBeta/Logos4Setup.exe

Important Note: Running the Logos4Setup.exe program from the above link will permanently upgrade your system from Logos 4.0 (v4.0.3.3272) to Logos 4.0a (v4.01.3.4533). While there is some risk to running a testing version of the software, this is a Release Candidate that should be suitable for general use. Logos 4.0a will automatically import all your documents and resources from 4.0 if it is installed on top of your existing copy of the software.

I get to be the first to congratulate Logos for this accomplishment. I am genuinely pleased with the progress of 4

It will replace any Logos 4 installation you currently have on your system. You will keep any files you have created.

When I drag content from a book into Word, it does not give me a footnote.  When I right click on the content and select copy in L4, then paste the content into Word, the footnote shows up.  If I set the footnotes to be copied over, shouldn't it happen whether I drag it or copy and paste it manually?

Love Logos 4.  Thanks for all your hard work.

I'd love to have my macros work with L4 like they did in L3...

I downloaded this but it is constantly reindexing...it will index for about 4 hours...then the icon disappears ...I think it is through...I close it....reopen it and it starts the indexing over again...it has done this at least 4 times today...no new downloads...no new resources...just restarts the indexing process each time. Any solution?

I ran this last night on my laptop, that was running RC1 with no problems. This morning my desktop running SR7 I get a Runtime Error. This application has requested the runtime to terminate it in an unusual way. Please advise. Note: I have the Logos 4 files in a custom directory if that makes any difference.

Tes,

 

Rather than add this request to lots of different threads, please create a post in the Suggestions forum, and make your request there. It will get a better response in the most relevant place.

Hi John,

We are looking into this problem. Meanwhile, you should be able to successfully install RC2 after deleting the Install folder in the Logos 4 directory.

Thanks,
Melissa

Hi Dave,

I have attached my log files. It looks like it says that my "indexer" is corrupted. If that is the case, then what can I do? I have left my laptop on overnight so the indexing would finish, only to start reindexing the 2nd day when I opened L4. so I left it on overnight again. Today the same problem: when I open L4, it starts indexing again, with no new downloads and no new resources.7824.Logos4.zip.

Appreciate any help!!!

It is attempting a full re-index as it suspects a corrupt index! Let's do it the old fashioned way by deleting the folder

C:\Documents and Settings\Charlene\Local Settings\Application Data\Logos4\Data\sdkwxwuj.iwv\LibraryIndex, but let me know what is in \LibraryIndex first!

You may need to use Explorer to view Hidden files and folders  (Folder options | View).

Thanks, Dave, for helping!

 

I found the file and was going to attach it as a zipped, but it wouldn’t let me…so I have just attached picture of the file. Does that help?

Also, I don’t know if it makes any difference, but before I saw your post, I had stopped the indexing through task manager and had given the command to reindex in L4.

So, can I delete the file now?

And then when I do, does L4 automatically start "the correct" indexing or do I need to do something?

Delete the LibraryIndex folder, start L4 and it will commence indexing.
