This is awesome! 

One request....the VF menu is getting longer and longer, esp if you are someone like me with LOTS of VFs, highlighting notes, etc. As such, would you guys consider 2 VF menus, one for Resource and Discourse features, and the other for our personal VFs (VF documents, highlighting notes, etc). I think this would make the menu much cleaner. I don't see any reason why there couldn't be two VF buttons at the top of a resource, esp given how little landscape space they consume on the resource bar. 

Just a thought. 

Thanks!

I'd prefer a single menu with all expandable units closed by default ... I agree with your diagnosis of the problem.

Thanks for this new feature.

This leads to another request (or a repeat of an earlier request), which is to make it possible for different visual filters to be placed on the same resource (so in one panel I could have a high-definition NIV, and in another panel I could have a 'normal' NIV with all my highlighting, etc.)

The way multiview is handled is perfect. There, multiview selections are saved with shortcuts/layouts, so I can quickly switch between different multiview configurations. The more visual filters you create, the more we need something similar for visual filters.

Dave Hooton:
But will Lexham Discourse Greek New Testament Glossary be made available to Now subscribers?

My understanding is that both the LDHB and LDGNT Glossaries will be made available in Logos Now too.

Lawrence Rafferty:

  • the search syntax generated by the context menu will not include the {Section ...} syntax, so the searches won't work in 6.11 unless you manually fix the search syntax
  • the context menu will usually show two LDGNT entries for words in the New Testament. This is fixed in 6.12.

Both of these issues have been fixed with 6.11 SR-2

Where can I get:

1. a manual or a short manual/ explanation on this Discourse Datasets and Visual Filters (Dataset)

2. a video on how it works

I have Logos Now and it will be nice to have a in ditto explanation in manual and video on how I can use it.

The videos and explanation of Logos is very nice and important.

The Discourse visual filters are in beta during the 6.12 cycle; at the end of the beta cycle the material should become available. Access to the LDGNT and LDHB introductions and glossaries should happen, I'd guess, in the next week.

So, for users who already own the rather expensive discourse databases and also subscribe to Logos Now, if I understand correctly, the only value in owning databases would be the permanent license rather than a temporary license (i.e., for LDHB, LDGNT, LHDOT, LHDNT)? Until fairly recently LDGNT was, in my evaluation, a useful but significantly unfinished beta product (with respect to widespread typos, omissions, and errors), although thankfully it's now improving significantly, especially since updates from around late 2015 and early 2016. That said, I wouldn't have invested in them if I didn't value them. I recall the Greek New Testament Discourse Bundle being a good value.

These new discourse visual filters and improved search databases look like an excellent and natural extension of the work that's been done on the discourse resources. I've always thought that Propositional Outlines would work well with some of the discourse-device symbols such as Topical Frames and Emphasis (e.g., for marked focal constituents). The Propositional Outlines really build on and extend the analysis of LDGNT and LDHB, but I think I'd prefer if they labeled devices such as simple Topical Frames with some of these symbols rather than placing them on their own line and thus separating them from their larger propositional and prosodic units/groupings. I don't think this facilitates fluent, uninterrupted reading. Anyway, I look forward to seeing how these different visual filters interact and complement one another.

Thanks to everyone involved in these projects! Keep up the good work!

I purchased the HDNT and the HDOT a year ago for over 200 dollars now i'm getting those resources free as a feature of Logos now. can I get a credit for my past purchase?

Hi Mike.

The High Definition NT (https://www.logos.com/product/3832/lexham-high-definition-new-testament-esv-edition ) and High Definition OT (https://www.logos.com/product/6831/lexham-high-definition-old-testament ) are not included in Logos Now. In Logos Now, we have only included data underlying LDGNT and LDHB and the glossary and introduction.

There is also the difference of having access to material through a subscription (Logos Now) and owning the material outside of a subscription. That said, if you want to speak with someone further, I'd encourage you to contact Faithlife customer service and interact with someone there regarding this issue.
