This may be existant for longer and rather indicate a not really thought-through design or a partial implementation. Nevertheless, the Merge function for Word Lists creates some undesirable (or: wrong) results.

Use case: The issue came up in several threads lately - generating Word Lists that are based on popular grammars or other external sources (i.e. were once imported into the Libronix/Logos Word List universe, build by hand and potentially shared in a group), i.e. not processed via the Add lemma from <source> routine, but somehow else AND having the audio link available - which subsequently will sync over to the mobile Flashcards app.

A potential solution (actually the only automated one existing in the application) would be to merge the desired list with a full list of all existing lemmas - this latter will Logos build including audio

See https://community.logos.com/forums/p/92378/703383.aspx#703383 (or the picture below) for the results.

  • Card Glosses and Card Fronts are added to one another, even if they are partially identical (giving "God, God; god")
  • Counts are added, too (which makes sense only for union and the mutually exclusive addition, not for intersection or difference and thus is a genuine bug) 
  • conversely, Sections and Audio are not added, but kept in the form of the first list - so it's either audio or chapters


(In case someone updates the design, it would be worth looking at the Add from selected text / from clipboard to potentially allow adding of other columns, not only lemmas, when the source is a table with e.g. lemmas and glosses)
