I just bought a new Lenovo Tab M10 tablet primarily so I could use Logos away from my desk, but there are some serious problems I wasn't expecting.

  • Logos is far slower than other apps on the tablet.  Highlighting can take many seconds to appear. Backspace in notes can take over a second for each keypress. 
  • Text copied from a commentary to a note doesn't include the reference.
  • Book info can't be copied!
  • By far the worst is that notes won't scroll once they fill enough of the page!. So the text becomes hidden under the on-screen keyboard. I have to select the floating keyboard which is very small for my big fingers.
  • There doesn't seem to be an undo feature for typing notes.
  • When I use the back arrow at the top left corner of the screen, it doesn't go to where I started but to a new generic notes screen which clutters up my layout. This is more of an inconvenience whereas the previous items really stiffle productivity.

Have a great day,
jmac

Do these issues appear on your android phone?

Please see my inline comments below, the issues that you have raised are in boldface:

Text copied from a commentary to a note doesn't include the reference. Book info can't be copied!

Results will vary for copying and pasting.  I apologize for the inconvenience.

By far the worst is that notes won't scroll once they fill enough of the page!. So the text becomes hidden under the on-screen keyboard. I have to select the floating keyboard which is very small for my big fingers.

This will be fixed in the forthcoming update to version 9.4.

There doesn't seem to be an undo feature for typing notes.

This is not currently available.

When I use the back arrow at the top left corner of the screen, it doesn't go to where I started but to a new generic notes screen which clutters up my layout.

This will be fixed in a future update.

Please send us your logs so that we can investigate this further:

1. Open the app.
2. Tap the Menu icon (has three horizontal lines).
3. Tap Help.
4. Press "Report a Problem"
5. A pre-addressed email will open with a log file attached automatically. Press "Send" to send your report.

Thanks for your reply and encouragement that some of these will be addressed. It's pretty weird  to have a text editor without undo these days. I'll send logs soon.

Have a great day,
jmac

On the Android app, is there a way to hyperlink to a resource? I would like to add links to dictionary articles or study bible articles in notes.
