New Features

  • Indexing
    • The Bible and Library indexes will be rebuilt when 4.2a Beta 5 is run for the first time. (This is to ensure that all users who upgrade to 4.2a get the new index format automatically, and have their supplemental index—if any—merged into the main index.)
    • The indexer will automatically merge a supplemental index into the main index after it has been built. (This was already happening for the Bible index; it has now been enabled for the Library index.)
    • The New Resources section in Search has been removed (because the supplemental index will be merged automatically).
  • Passage Guide
    • Illustrations section is implemented and available to add to an existing Passage Guide and in the Guide Template Editor.
  • Updates
    • Download size for updates (to existing resources) has been reduced.
    • Scheduling of downloads has been added to Automatically Download Updates in Program Settings. This will enable a user to schedule downloads between certain hours of the day. Notes: “Automatically Download Updates” must be set to “Yes” to see this feature. The Logos 4 icon will appear when the program becomes aware of an update, with a tooltip that will indicate the scheduled time of the download.

New Features for Mac

  • Clause Visualizers
    • Implemented Print/Export for Clause Visualizer resources.
  • Sentence Diagram
    • Implemented Print/Export for Sentence Diagram Documents.

New Features for Windows

  • Setup
    • Beta 5 includes a new version of the Logos4Prerequisites.msi, which includes a new Coptic font, “Antinoou” (regular and italic), and updates to the LogosSymbolsUnicode.ttf and SBL_Hbrw.ttf fonts. Notes: Updating a previous Logos 4 installation will require an administrator password for elevation for a Standard user account. The updated .msi file will make the Beta 5 download bigger by 19.5 MB.
