Thanks, Dave.  I am going to give it a try now.

Quicker download!  Still have trouble with layout of text.  In the Christian's Secret of a Holy Life I used to get the title and date overlapping each other.  They are still that way before I download and there is no title/date at all once I download.  I get the same thing with Exploring the New Testament.  The outline for the chapter being discussed, like Colossians, has the title overwriting the chapter/verse references.  When I download I lose the outline.  All I get is "Outline" but nothing under it.

Kaye, thanks for the feedback. Before downloading a book, things will look as they did with 1.4; it's after downloading that the new layout code takes over. I am not seeing the same thing as you when I test Christian's Secret of a Holy Life or Exploring the New Testament on my devices. I see the title and date on the first and the online on the second. What type of device are you using? And do you know what OS version you have?

I can verify that Lexham Discourse Greek New Testament now lays out correctly.

Nice work on this update, I am excited to see what is coming down the road at us. Keep up the good work. Yes

Dave,

I have the 32 GB, non-3G iPad (model MB293LL) with the latest OS upgrade (4.2.1-8C148).  When I went to the App store to get the update, it said installed.  I removed the old app, rebooted the iPad and was able to add the new app.  I downloaded the resource, opened it up and saw that my date/title text was missing.

Sorry I can't send you a screenshot.  :-(  It's not a big deal to me.  I just wanted to let you know.

I tried this and, for what it's worth. I experienced the same symptoms with Christian's Secret... before download, but it displays properly having downloaded it. iPhone 4

Hi all,

Anyone having problems with the new app exiting upon startup for resources that are available offline?  Seems with the MacArthur study bible resource (NAS version and loaded offline), the app will start, then exit as it tries to load the page from that resource.  If the resource is not available offline, it works ok (will load the page)  Other resources seem to work ok offline, but not the MAC NAS one.

I removed the app (the only way to get it working again), and reconfigured.  Seems to work ok as long as "that" resource is not made available offline (from my simple test case).

Others having similar problem with other offline resources (causing the app to exit)?

Curious,

Paul

With doc not stored for offline use.  As you said, the layout is still weird.

Same section after I store it for offline use.  The day's title and date are missing.

 

Sorry, it took me a bit to find out how to make the screenshot!

Jonathan,

Thanks for testing it out on your iPhone.  Must be an iPad only thing.

Yes, that resource crashes the app for me too.

Why does everything take even longer than before? It is really slow. I removed and reinstalled the app. Could it be trying to sync? I wanted to download the ESV, but it would not let me... I type in a title in the library that used to come up quickly is now taking over a minute...Please advise.

Yup, I have the same "problem". Good to see that the new way that the program renders text fixes these alignment problems. Currently only the "offline use" books are displayed in the new engine. I've been told that the online text will be corrected soon.

John, I wondered the same thing, and figured that it was because everyone and his brother were all trying to do the same thing at the same time... using up all of the available bandwidth.  Just my thought.

The iPad re-downloaded 70+ of my 460+ offline books and then decided to go to sleep for the night (after I went to bed).  

Is there a way to keep the iPad from going into sleep mode?

Go to your iPad settings then look under the General tab. Change Auto-Lock from whatever it is to Never and the iPad shouldn't lock/sleep. 

I would tend to assume that the Logos app would continue downloading even if the iPad has locked, so you may be hitting some other issue. Myself and others are having trouble downloading the ESV Study Bible, is that in your download list? There may be some other resources having issues. But you might try removing the ESV Study Bible from your offline books and see if the download will continue as it should.

Wish there had been a way of removing unwanted/read books before they got downloaded again..

I guess I should have read release notesd before installing Stick out tongue

Never Deprive Anyone of Hope.. It Might Be ALL They Have
