Richard - try taking another look for these:

Richard Ogg:
Good News Translation® (Today's English Version, Second Edition) Copyright © 1992 American Bible Society

This came over for me, but it is not called TEV in Logos, it's GNT. Here's the citation:

American Bible Society. The Holy Bible: The Good News Translation. 2nd ed. New York: American Bible Society, 1992. Print.

Richard Ogg:
 Epistles of James and John, The, Ross, Alexander; Stonehouse, Ned B.

I already had this in Logos, so I can't be sure about the mapping, but here is the citation for the Logos resource: 

Ross, Alexander. The Epistles of James and John. Grand Rapids, MI: Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co., 1954. Print. The New International Commentary on the New Testament.

Richard Ogg:
Adam Clarke's Commentary

This one also came over for me, but the name is quite different, and I didn't notice it last night. Here's the citation:

Clarke, Adam. The Holy Bible with a Commentary and Critical Notes. New Edition. I–VI. Bellingham, WA: Faithlife Corporation, 2014. Print.

Bill McVicker:

Overall, I like Logos, (I’ve used both since QuickVerse days and Libronix days) and each had strengths

For example, Logos is a true 64 bit app, and it doesn’t seem to care how many resources I have open.  It is so fast!  I like the ability of being able to change the background colors to make it easier on the eyes.  Logos has so much power, I doubt I will ever use half of it.

Wordsearch had strengths too.. For example, being able to click a button to turn on/off Strong’s numbers is amazingly simple.  Or having the Strong’s talking Greek Hebrew dictionary available which allows me to learn to say words my tongue isn’t use to pronouncing with the click of a icon.  lol.   And ZipScript… allows me to put Bible Verses in my PowerPoint slides so easily

I understand there will be growing pains... I can't believe how much work must've gone into this change over and so appreciate the work that's been done so far.  I do wish there was a utility we could run... comparing our WordSearch libraries with our Logos Libraries and list out the differences.  I've spent several hours today trying to see what I had in WS vs what I have in Logos.  And it's frustrating when I see a commentary missing in Logos.  Then I look at the Logos Store (for example at the Teach the Text commentary) and it shows that I own all but the 2nd Corinthians one (I actually own all of them in WS) but none of that commentary have come down to my Logos yet... Is this a bug? should I report it or should I be patient... I think probably the latter... but is that right?  I don't want to be a pain... after all WS still works.  

I think this will be a good change over and I just have to learn some new tricks... but you know what they say about old dogs... 

Thank you again

Love your heart here, bro!

Good words!!

So far, my experience has been less than satisfactory. I tried downloading the Logos software to my computer to no avail (says file missing). When using the web version, I noticed that my resource, Dispensational Truth, was text only, and the charts and other features are "sold separately." I paid almost $100 for that resource, and now Logos expects me to pay even more to maintain what I had. Moreover none of study resources have migrated yet. So, I will have to continue using both apps until then.  

For folks like me who loved the simplicity of Wordsearch, I am disappointed thus far with this so-called superior product. Most of us wrestle with complicated software and complex programs at work that are ever changing. It was nice having a simple resource to study God's Word.  

I feel you, here, Jeff!
Love(d) the simplicity of Wordsearch as a quick go to.

Sorry you've had some difficulty(-ies) with Logos so far! Try to be patient with the resources coming over and all the background "magic" that has to happen to make them available to you/us in Logos.

Transitioning over to Logos will definitely be a learning curve, but it is worth the time and practice. The best analogy is learning to dance: If you learn the basic 2-step you'll be alright, but know there are so many more moves and styles you can learn. The more you get to know and put in your repertoire, the better. But it all starts with that 2-step. 
Let me encourage you to push on. 

Welcome to Logos, Jeff! Praying the transition for you goes smoother than it started.

Blessings in JESUS!

1 Thessalonians 5:16–21 (ESV)
16 Rejoice always, 17 pray without ceasing, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. 19 Do not quench the Spirit. 20 Do not despise prophecies, 21 but test everything; hold fast what is good.

I can't find College Press NIV Commentary which I bought in wordsearch,

I am having the same issue.

It looks like we have a mismatch on our side that's preventing these from being unlocked. Since these are in Logos, you should get access to them soon when we fix this. Thanks for your patience.

Thanks Bradley. That was exactly the resource(s) I was missing and wanting to ask for. 

Thanks again for your presence on the forums and the great customer service.

I agree with comment about Strong's numbers.

Also, with Worksearch , I can link all my Bibles and Commentaries at the same time.

With Logos , I only see way to ,link one Bible with one commentary. Is there a way to link all( usually keep 5 or 6 of each up for study ) at same time in Logos?

One difference that I have come to realize in the difference between WordSearch and Logos is that are intended to functional totally differently...Dr. duh you say.  Consider for a moment that WordSearch is a bible program is actually designed only to work as a bible software platform that is easy to use, quick, and intuitive.  While Logos is really more of a search platform designed to search multiple libraries (i.e. secular academic, Catholic, and various faith tradition libraries) which means it is far more complicated and difficult to use.  In short Logos is a ai based librarian that tries to be all things to all people in the digital world not a bible program (i.e. e-sword, Olive software) which spits out predigested "bible studies" (i.e. data bases).  Be prepared to spend a great deal of money, time, and effort to master this ai product...imo.

I agree with comment about Strong's numbers.

Which comment? If you'd like to use them, have you seen one of the several explanations given yesterday and today about how to do so (the official version is here: https://support.logos.com/hc/en-us/articles/360028307111-Using-Strong-s-Numbers ), do you need more help about that?

Of course you can - you did see Mark's explanation in the other thread about how to set up a link set (he posted directly above your first post), did you? Nothing says that you can only link one commentary to a bible, in fact I usually use multiple, if I work on a passage. Even more I use several bibles in such a link set to have different translations next to each other in my layout.

That's great news! I'm using mainly Logos, but I have about 600 resources in Wordsearch (partly overlapping with my Logos library). It's great to get those to the Logos library!

A question: Is there an easy way to export a list of resources in my Wordsearch library? There's Products owned section in the account page, but it lists the titles in a cover view only (not so easy to copy paste). I've been using the mobile app and the web app only in the recent years.

In the SW desktop app, there is a command under the Tools menu called "My Library List" which will generate resource info with an option to copy to clipboard.

So far I agree. Very disappointed that my Wordsearch platform is no longer available.

Wordsearch should work just fine until an operating system is unable to run it even in compatibility mode. So take your time getting familiar with the new environment.

John Fidel:

Try this:

Open your KJV and make sure it is the reverse interlinear that is tagged. You will know this if you hover over a word it will show you the original language information.

Is there a way to know which of our bibles include the reverse interlinear? Or maybe what I should ask is how to ensure the reverse interlinear is "tagged?"

I appreciate the good detailed instructions [that I deleted for this reply] but I'm not sure how to navigate step #1.

Thanks!!

Continuing on the reverse interlinear issue.....

I was reading https://support.logos.com/hc/en-us/articles/360028307111-Using-Strong-s-Numbers and it shows the reverse interlinear as part of the ESV. My ESV doesn't show that. Are there different versions of the files that include or do not include that coding in the background? (Still can't figure this out....)

Not from the library itself - the functionalities and datasets listed for packages in the store have them. Many users found it helpful to manually tag them in the library - there are 22 English Bibles available that have a Reverse Interlinear, see the screenshot:

Yes, some Bibles originally were published without the reverse interlinear. The quickest way I know to find what RI Bibles you own"

  1. Open Search
  2. Select Bible Search all Bibles
  3. Search for <Person Abraham>
  4. Run the query. All results are from Bibles with a RI which is how the datatype tag was matched.

I don't know anything about which features and datasets you owned in Wordsearch and received in Logos as part of the license migration. If you were a Logos user asking me this question, I'd recommend making sure that you own at least the Starter Feature Set (or any set that includes this), based on the section for interlinears on this page: https://www.logos.com/compare/featuresets or alternatively the Fundamentals Set: https://www.logos.com/product/166518/logos-8-fundamentals

Hmm. I get the search heading[?] shows "Search All Bible Text in Entire Bible in All Bibles for" then the search field is "<person Abraham>" and that yields 0 results. Sad

Any idea what I'm doing wrong?
