Okay,  I know that Logos 4 is supposed to be much more "graphics" oriented than previous versions, and that's alright up to a point. 

But there are several areas where the graphics just are not needed.  One of them is the Parallel Resources drop down menu's in L4. (4.0b beta 12).

Here's the problem:  When you click on the Parallel Resources Icon -  in 4.0b beta 12 - the drop down menu that displays the parallel resources takes several seconds to download all the book cover graphics.

This is one of those places where you could remove the graphics altogether (no one would even notice) and just have a text based list that loads instantly.  We don't need to have any graphics in the Parallel Resources drop down menu's.

  • So my suggestion is:  Please remove the book cover graphics from the Parallel Resources drop down menu's.  They are not needed there, and removing them would increase L4's performance when using those menu's.

in general, I think they are helpful. CRUCIAL?  no, but helpful.  I would imagine as the relative computer power/speed increases this will be a non-factor.  and it will be nice to have the visual. 

in general, I find things slow: typing in notes, clicking on Louw/Nida in an internlinear, homepage, etc.  arrrrrgh!  am with you on anti slowness (even if I want the graphic kept! Wink)

I like Apples.  Especially Honeycrisp.

I have to agree with Stein. The book cover icons are so tiny in that menu that I can hardly see them. And that menu takes upwards of 1 minute to display the first time on my Quad Core machine! Granted, I have one of those mongo "Not highly rated" collections that Mark Barnes suggested in his videos which has a ton of entries in it. But does the menu really need to load all those icons when it first pops up? Why not wait to load them until needed, if I scroll down in the list? Of course that would make scrolling in the list slower. Agghh! I say just ditch them.
