  • Cindy Proctor / Morris Proctor

    On Saturday evening Cindy Proctor died from injuries received in a car accident earlier that day. Cindy was the wife of Morris Proctor, and together with Morris had been training Logos users for more than 20 years. She was a constant, cheerful presence at Camp Logos events, and became a dear friend of so many of Logos users as well as Faithlife team

  • Re: Congratulations on 30 years

    Thanks for the kind words and congratulations! It's hard to believe it's been so long (and even longer, since I wrote my first DOS-based Bible search program in 1986 -- in high school!). It's continues to be a great blessing to serve so many kind and enthusiastic users, and to have so many of you who've been using Logos for so many years.

  • Re: FL: What is your COOP?

    Thanks to COVID, most of us aren't even working in the office downtown... (though I miss it!) We were able to switch to remote work very quickly, which is a good sign about our adaptability (and ability to run the business despite anything that might happen to our office buildings). Bellingham is struggling (and arguing) about how best to help the homeless

  • Re: Is there a setting to turn off the advert/splash screen on loading please?

    I'm sorry you don't like the splash screen... for what it's worth, it's been there since the very beginning. As far as I know it's programmed to display right away -- so that you know your app invocation worked -- and to disappear as soon as the app is loaded enough to use. We aren't trying to force anyone to look at it, and it's only there as long

  • Re: Unacceptable - Bob Pritchett Please personally oversee getting this resouce fixed with high priority

    I'm sorry that we released this without more attention, and for your frustration. In our desire to get all the books over as quickly as possible we're using automation and batch processing first; I don't know that each title is hand checked, since we have thousands to process and most go through relatively smoothly. We will certainly go back and revisit

  • Re: I Don’t Get It

    Phil's answer is correct... I'd also add that while some people are "all-in" on mobile devices, whether phones or tablets, it does seem like many people exhibit a 'create/consume' distinction (myself included!) where most 'creation' (writing, editing, typing) happens on a laptop or desktop -- something with a keyboard and maybe a mouse -- and use their

    [quote user="Fábio Silva"]Right now something that has been weird to me is the "week" tab on Sermon Manager[/quote] Our observation is that different churches have different concepts of the week, or even the 'sermon day'. Some sermons aren't just for Sunday, they are delivered Saturday night and again once or twice on Sunday morning. Some churches

  • Re: Suggestions: Please, Please Change the new Logos Icon

    I'm sorry you don't like the new icon... it's an attempt to make clearer the family connection to all the Faithlife tools. You can see the icons lined up here: https://equip.faithlife.com/ Our logo and icon have changed many times over the years, and each change feels weird and 'wrong' at first, until it doesn't. I feel the same way about other companies

  • Re: Short Titles: Why do certain books have them while certain others don't?

    Some of this is done by hand, and there may be inconsistency (or older resources produced before we did this). We typically create the short titles for books with awkward titles and well-known popular 'short handles', but that's a subjective and sometimes personal distinction. There are also "Titles: Subtitles" and algorithmic shortening to abbreviation

    We are exploring this more. Print Bible publishing is more complex -- typically more complicated typesetting as well as specialized thin-paper printing and binding -- but we'd love to do it.
