I am really struggling with this new release.

not too much seem to be functioning as described.

In the home screen I see several articles I want to read, but the hyperlinks seem to be dead. I can't navigate to the "more" link.

There is a beta version but there is also a production version and has been one since November. It generally is stable and works wells - comparatively few problems and most of them as small. I cannot duplicate your problem with the hyperlinks on the Home Page. What platform are you running on - Windows or Mac?

I run Logos on Mac and Windows. I have had no problems thus far except that the program sometimes closes unexpectedly.

Hi MJ & Rari, Thanks for your replies.

I am running MAC

I just got off phone with Logos on the several issues that were bothering me last night.

when I tried to duplicate some, they no longer occurred. He told me that if Logos was 'upgrading' then some features may not be presnt.

 

Logos was not upgrading (at least there was no upgrade icon on the top of the screen). I also think it odd that a brand new download from logos site would need immediate upgrading...

However, if things aren't going to work straight out of the box, they should advise on installation that some feature may take 24 hours to function properly.

Also, back in logos 4, MAC and Windows did not match...they worked to get LOGOS to match feature for feature....but the training videos are still somewhat lacking in that they do not show operational differences between MAC and Windows.

Example; there is no "go" button in clause search in MAC, and the video doens't mention that differnce.

Last night when I tried to do topic search, when I typed in the example from the video (Lord's Super) I got no suggestions in drop down after typing in Lord' even though Lord's Supper was in the suggestion list after typing in Lord

So, I thought there were bugs...

 

Thanks for your input and quick replies.....I really appreciate it.

Things seem straight now.

Don

Hey Donald:

They may have meant that Logos 5 was indexing. You see, the system downloads and then has to compile all that info to make sure your results and quick and accurate. If you see a little Logos symbol at the top or your screen near the clock, it means it's indexing. The initial index after an upgrade can be several hours. When you add resources or patch, it should be much shorter.

Could that be because you only typed one "p" in Supper?

1 p in post, but two p's in lookup.

Besides, nothing shows up after typing in the single quote for possessive "Lord's"

But as I mentioned in another thread; most problems have resolve. Apparently it was still indexing even though it wasn't indicated an index was in progress.

Thanks all for feedback and rapid replies.

Greatly appreciated.

No one else seems to have this problem. You did not use the quotes in the Topic Guide, did you?
