I recently spoke to a fellow Logos user only to find out ... he is still using L3 Indifferent

The 100 new features page might help those who have not yet made the leap [or, those who HAVE L4 but rarely use it because they are so used to L3].

http://www.logos.com/4/newfeatures

However, the bottom of the "newfeatures" page shows the date 11/25/2009. There have been some GREAT new features added/enriched since then.

Just saying.  Smile

So am I, though I prefer L4...

But I'm still using L3 for:

  1. Smart Tags & Sys Tray CBV (after raw research in L4, when I'm primarily working from MS-Word)
  2. Markups in Projected Bible Studies I lead , so I don't have to deal with markups in my primary research tool
  3. Access to PBBs

Yes, there are wonderful new features in L4 & I'm loving them all. :-)

Blessings!

Grace & Peace,
Bill

Just had a similar experience myself.  It was a young pastor officiating at a wedding.  He told me that he purchased Gold when first it came out and that was a big deal because everyone at his school still had silver.  I didn't want to one-up him . . . but he did ask which package I (a layman) had. His jaw literally dropped when I told him Platinum.

Anyways, good suggestion to direct L3 users to the 100 new features page.

Has Logos released any stats on the percentage of L3 users that upgraded to L4?

Hope he does not have palpitations when he goes to the site and sees that you can go as far as Portfolio.

So am I, Ron, as well as using L4.  The best of both worlds.  I have Barnes, Calvin, MacLaren, Murray, Simpson and others in L3 that I don't know exactly when I will have them in L4.  And they are free.  Granted, PBB's are in the next major update for L4 but will I have those...and when, I am not sure.  Not pessimistic but realistic.  I can use them right now and will continue to do so.  Many things to appreciate in both software packages!

I use Logos 3 for:

PBBs

WIVU search database

Some syntax searches where I really need the help of seeing highlights in the ESV alongside original language

Some printing

Sermons

Daily Lectionary

Isn't this available in L4? I can select WIVU Hebrew Morphology for a Morph search. Is this what you're referring to? Or was there something more in L3?

Can't sympathetic highlighting do this?

WIVU syntax search doesn't work in L4 yet.

Not in the search results window in L4, it does in Libronix.

I still use L3 for several reasons.  #1 - it is faster, #2 - notes, #3 - it doesn't copy my data up to the L4 servers, #4 - it doesn't crash, #5... the list goes on and on and on.

I had a similar experience but with another member of the church, in Bible class. He asked what I used. I said 'Logos'. He then said he used 'Libronix'. I didn't want to ask which version but he's quite well read in Bibical knowledge, etc. Our pastor is quite happy with his software, which also isn't the latestj/greatest. I still think 'any' Bible software, as a minimum' should be comfortable to use quickly, without a significant learning curve (and hardware curve). But the choices DO need a heavy hitter, and thus I'm glad Logos continues in the direction it is going.
