Bug Fixes

  • About
    • Program information in ‘About Logos Bible Software’ screen can now be selected and copied.
  • Clippings
    • Fixed bug that did not add reference to clippings from the NA27. (See this thread.)
  • Home Page
    • Fixed crash that could occur when loading a problem image on the home page.
  • Layouts
    • Fixed bug that caused Layouts menu to decrease in size when using a filter not contained in any named layout.
  • Personal Books
    • Fixed bug that allowed a Personal Book to be compiled with only a space in the metadata allowing a book to be compiled without a title.
    • Fixed bug that caused program to crash when an external image was present in the text. Program will now ignore external images like other unsupported image types.
    • Fixed bug that caused program crash when compiling a book initially saved as a .doc file and converted to .docx using a patch from Microsoft.
    • Fixed bug that picked up a paragraph break as a new section in the Table of Contents. (See this thread.)
    • Word Heading styles are detected correctly as Personal Book headings. Page number milestones will not be detected as Headings if they are not formatted with a Word Heading style. (I.e., Correct format is to have page number milestone, [[@Page:p1]], in Normal style, then drop down a line to type heading formatted with Heading style.)

Bug Fixes for Mac

  • Bible Word Study
    • Fixed bug that caused program hang when opening ‘Grammatical Relationships’ section in a specific search. (See this thread.)
  • Parallel Resources
    • Fixed a bug that caused a crash when progressing through a custom parallel resource set that included both Bibles and Clause Visualizers. (See this thread.)
  • Passage Guide
    • Fixed bug that caused ‘Interesting Words’ wordle to be missing from the display.
  • Search Panel
    • Fixed crash caused by searching for a specific word in a specific resource. (See this thread.)
    • Fixed bug that caused duplicated results. Note: Requires a rebuild of your index. First try ‘rebuild Bible index’ command. If that is not successful, do a full rebuild with the ‘rebuild index’ command. (See this thread.)
    • Made improvements to next page hyperlinks found at the bottom of the Grid View results panel in Bible search.

Bug Fixes for Windows

  • Handouts
    • Ctrl+P now opens the standard Windows Print dialog (as does the Print button on the Handout toolbar).
  • Personal Books
    • Removed support for WMF type image files.

    • Editing text which has had a highlight style applied to it before recompiling the book will cause the highlight to shift location. (See this thread.)
    • Although a resource can be built with the “Bible” type, it will not function correctly as a Bible in Logos 4 (e.g., Copy Bible Verses, Bible Text Only, etc., do not work).
