Bug Fixes

  • Layouts
    • Fixed bug that caused a layout, loaded a second time, to replace all the resource panels with the message “This resource cannot be displayed.”
  • Untransliteration
    • Fixed the following Greek untransliteration issues: “J” for Greek iota, “U” for Greek omicron + upsilon; and “Jesus” will map to the lemma Ἰησοῦς.

Bug Fixes for Mac

  • Copy Bible Verses
    • Fixed truncated “Copy” button.
  • Diagnostic Logging
    • Full Logging has been disabled to improve performance in the program. Logging can be enabled temporarily or permanently by following the steps below:
      • Temporary logging: Open Logos 4 by pressing the Command key immediately after clicking the icon in the Dock, keeping Cmd held down until the Sign In window appears. Click the Sign In button to open the program with logging enabled for that session.
      • Permanent logging: Quit Logos 4 and open the Terminal utility. Enter defaults write com.logos.Logos_Bible_Software_4 LoggingEnabled -bool YES.
      • Disable Permanent logging: Quit Logos 4 and open the Terminal utility. Enter defaults write com.logos.Logos_Bible_Software_4 LoggingEnabled -bool NO.
    • Crash logs will still be generated with logging disabled; however, if a crash occurs, development will need the Logos4.log or Indexer.log as well.
  • Morph Search panel
    • Fixed morph picker bugs:
      • Selecting the parts of speech and their corresponding fields can be done using mouse or keyboard, and selections will now be populated in the Find box. (See Known Issues.)
      • Selection by keyboard is now consistent with the Windows version: arrow down to item, press Spacebar to select, and Enter to close morph picker.
  • Notes
  • Passage Analysis
    • Fixed Word Tree, Morph River, and Version River display.
  • Print/Export
    • Fixed bug that prevented preview generation when a reference was entered without selecting it first from the auto-complete list.
  • Resource Panel
