Visual Copy probably not worth it for serious use

Bob,

That is nice. Could someone perhaps work up a guide to how to use this? I tried to find the overview slides for Luke, with no success. I have to confess, unless I had your link for Habakkuk, I would have had absolutely no idea where to start finding Bible book background slides.

We plan to make this easier, but for now:

  1. Look up the Factbook entry for the book

2. Click the link to do a Media Search for that Topic

The folder icon in the middle tells you this is a set of images.

(The slides should show up directly in the Factbook once we solve another issue.)

OK. Just FYI, that will not work for a Gospel. When you do a Factbook search on a gospel (whether searching for "Luke" or "Book of Luke") it returns the *person* not the *book* and the media is not present. You have to search in the Factbook for "Gospel of Luke" to get the right media link.

Another cool example content we deliver via Visual Copy is Greek and Hebrew alphabet charts.

Search for Hebrew and we have two alphabet charts. One with the letters and another that shows you suggested strokes for writing it.

How does Visual Copy handle longer scripture quotes?  Does it break them into separate slides OR does it just shrink the text?

Interesting question.

To try it out I selected John 1:9-14 and Visual Copy returned a lot of slides but most of them related to John 1:1 (&2)

Looks like a problem there.

Hey Fred, try searching "Gospel of Luke."

In this case, Visual Copy is showing you the Verse of the Day art nearest the passage you selected. Scroll beyond those to the non-VOD media (like the red ESV slide) and when you click on it you'll get the text you selected.

On longer quotes, Visual Copy will shrink the text size to make it fit. Probably a better option would be to select smaller chunks and send the text to Visual Copy in batches.

Hi Ray

That will find the correct topic but - on checking - it looks as though the "Bible Backgrounds" media is not available for any of the Gospels.

That's a bug, surely? How is it useful to says "I don't have verse 13 in VotD, but here's a different verse instead"?

Actually it is, but it took me a minute to find it. Try a media search for "Bible Backgrounds Luke."

I'm not sure why it's not linked up to the Bible Book Guides. It should be. I'll submit a case about that.

Sorry I should have been more specific that this was a Factbook linkage issue

I've got all of those backgrounds, but I'm thinking more along the lines of this ESV orange background like this one. When using the ESV and Visual copy, this is not an option for me. It's not a big deal, but it seems to be in all the publicity, yet unavailable.

I'm not sure what the problem is here. Are you not seeing this?

Hey Dylan, yesterday we weren't. Maybe this was addressed in the service release that went yesterday afternoon?

Thanks for being on it so fast!

Hey James, more media collections (and thus more options for visual copy) are added at higher base package levels. This particular slide is included in a collection available at Bronze and above.

Ok, thanks. That's what I was trying to figure out.

 You have to search in the Factbook for "Gospel of Luke" to get the right media link.

This has been fixed in 6.0b Beta 1.

Bible Book Guides will now appear when the Bible reference is entered. No longer requires specific ‘First Epistle to’ or ‘Gospel of’ to choose Biblical Book Guides.

Does anyone else wish that visual copy included proper citations as an option? This is pretty essential in an academic setting...
