First I own and use a Mac, so I have not tested this on Windows, but when using the "Read the Bible in a Year" feature, it seems that the Logos 5 only check the Date on Startup. I cannot leave Logos up over multiple days and get the appropriate date.
I can understand for performance reasons not to constantly check the date, but certainly there should be a resource. It seems a little silly to have a "must shut down every 24 hours to use all features" set of functionality.
You are right about the vagaries of Logos as regards recognising date change over. I have never worked out whether this is connected with the the time shift from Bellingham or is due to some other anomaly.
There are however ( I believe) good reasons to shut down and restart Logos at least on a regular basis if not daily due to the platform on which Logos is built not be very good at running for long periods.
How to get logs and post them Logos for Mac and for Windows
I have had a number of issues relating to dates when using my iPad but I don't see this particular problem on Windows.
I have left my computer on for a number of days (I do press its "sleep" button at night) and L5 seems to be tracking dates just fine.
I wonder if there is a Mac issue here as opposed to a more general problem?
