Hello everyone!

Upgraded to Logos 6 last week. Look forward to digging into some of the new features as time allows.

I noticed when I first loaded it up that the line spacing on my Greek Bible (NA27 w/ Gramcord) was very tight, while nothing else seemed to be off. I started playing with the line spacing options in preferences and it affects everything (Lexicons, English resources, Hebrew Bibles, etc.) but not the Greek Bibles (NA27 w/ Gramcord or the NA27 w/out morphology). They both stay very tight.

Semi-related note. Is there a way to adjust line spacing on a resource by resource level? I like the Hebrew spacing to be loose, while I'd prefer the English text of those resources to be closer together.

Thanks, all, for the help! I'm probably just doing something dumb and hope it's an easy fix!

Running Logos 6.0 SR-3 (6.0.0.3752) on OS X 10.10.

Hello Tim.

The only options we have at the resource level are the size of the type itself. (Under the main pull-down resource menu.)

You can try switching the default Greek and Hebrew typefaces under Tools/Program Settings.

Thanks Mark!

The problem isn't the font, it's the Greek Bibles in particular. No matter what font is selected, they don't change the way they display at all with any of the line spacing preferences. For whatever reason those resources seem to be excluded from the universal line spacing settings. Seems like it's just a little glitch somewhere.

Agreed if it affects only the Greek NT.

Like you I would love to have more control over line spacing, esp. in Bibles of all sorts.

Yeah, that would be nice, but not a huge deal. Getting this Greek Bible bug squashed, though, would be great! :)

Thanks, I will report this issue. This is a bug in the resource itself. The program settings for line spacing don't override resources that have specific line spacing set on them like these. This resource should not have a specific line spacing set here.

Sorry, this is not currently available.

Thanks! Do note it was affecting a few different versions of the NA27 on my system. Not sure if they draw from a common source or not, but it might be affecting more than 1 item.

Thanks for your time and work! :)

Any update on this? It's still the same as it was at the beginning of the month on my end.

Thanks!

Timothy, the case remains open. I can't comment on any estimate because the books are not maintained by us in the Software Development department. However, I will send an email reminder to someone in Content Production who may be able to give the case a look.
