Wow. 4 bugs I reported (here, here, here and here) fixed in one beta. That must be a record!

Hopefully they will find a fix so the library opens in a floating panel again soon.

Ctrl-L now opens Library in floating window, Windows, did not on 6.0 SR-3. Is that what you are referring to Mike?

Here's a thread with a bug/annoyance that hopefully can be addressed during the 6.0a beta release cycle. See also the thread that it links to for more information:

It most certainly is, I did not see this fix in the release notes but if it has been fixed that is most excellent.

Hmm, if it's been fixed, my machine certainly never got the news. I'm running 6.0 SR-3 (on a Win 7 machine) and Ctrl-L is not opening the library in a floating window for me. It opens in a new window but not a floating window, like it did in L5

It's fixed in 6.0a Beta 1 not 6.0 SR-3 (you are in the beta thread)

I am actually running Verbum on Program Scaling=90% so I can get 6 columns and I have a ton of room for new symbols on the tool bar for short cuts. Font is much better - not quite as good as the Mac version which has the same number of columns, but I know a little more improvement will come with future versions of Chromium.

Will this footnote problem be fixed in 6.0a?

How do I revert back to non-beta again?

I just got the Logos 6 upgrade engine as part of the Beta 5.3 upgrade. I do not have any cross grades yet. 

I would like to stay with the stable release until I cross grade and a couple of cycles of beta are released. 

I can just wait for the current beta to go stable I guess. Or should I set my update channel to stable now?

Thanks!

By the way, I REALLY LIKE LOGOS 6!!!

May the Lord bless you and keep you.

If you're on 6.0a beta 1, you can't revert back to 6.0, unless you completely re-install. You should set update channel to default, and then you'll stay on the beta channel until 6.0a is launched, and then you'll automatically revert to the stable channel.

If you're on 6.0, then you can make sure you stay on 6.0 by the same command: set update channel to default
