Logos 5.2

New Features

   Added an ‘Edit guide template’ option to the context menu for new Guides.

   Implemented “Search this resource” to context menu in Library.
   Added narrated resource icon next to resources that have associated audio resources

  Added Chinese, Dutch, German, Italian, and Korean Bible data types.
  Search fields are now localized for Spanish, Italian, and a over half of German.

   Made navigation more sensitive to Hebrew and Greek marks. For example, previously double-clicking the root עֵזֶר would take you to I עזר, even though the better match is I עֵזֶר.
   Improved the resource distribution algorithm: (See this thread.)

  • Resources will now default to opening on the right, while guides/documents will open on the left; only applies to the first panel opened in a blank layout.
  • New resources opened will now prefer to distribute evenly among panels, rather than clustering on the left, assuming the two panels have similar content.
  • The algorithm considers each group of tab types within the panel individually, e.g. resources, guides and note documents, rather than picking one tab to represent the contents of all the tabs in the panel.

New Tab Panel
   Improved the usability of the New Tab Panel. Suggested options are now based on the last active panel:

  • All new tabs will provide a prioritized list of your frequently used resources/documents.
  • Opening from a resource will show a list of parallel resources or those with similar references.
  • Opening from a non-resource will provide shortcuts to Documents/Tools/Guides, or similar elements (History, Cited By, etc.)
  • Click to open the page items in the same panel or drag and drop an item to open it and preserve the current New Tab list.

   The right-side column is now resizeable. (See this thread.)

Passage Lists
   Implemented “Save as Passage List” to the context menu of several Guide sections, Bible Facts sections, and the ‘Cross References’ section of the Explorer tool.
   When saving search results as Passage Lists, the list will now open in the same panel as the corresponding Search. Also applies to saving as Bibliography, Collection, and Word List. (See this thread.)

Prayer List
   Implemented Group Prayer Lists that can now be shared with an existing Faithlife group. Each member of the group may add/view prayer request items.

Resource Panel
   Panels moved to a floating window should return to their original location when docked:

  • The simple case of floating one panel in a tab, then redocking it should work as expected.
  • Panels floated from a floating window and redocked should go back to the window they were floated from.
  • If a panel is floated and the tile it originated from no longer exists, it will use the existing clustering algorithm.

Search Panel
   Implemented linguistic sensitivity for original language searches, including items such as breathing marks and accents. (See this page for a list of commands.)

Smart Selection

  • Smart Selection has been implemented for select resources (See this thread for more info), and a toggle has been added to Program Settings.
  • Smart Selection allows for text selection based on word, clause, sentence, and paragraph groupings. Holding Alt/Option will allow normal selection, and Alt/Option+RightClick will select the word’s logical cluster.
  • Implemented Smart Selection based on words in all resources (when smart selection is turned on) even if more detailed smart selection data is unavailable.

New Features for Mac

Media Resources
   Implemented new view controls to better display stereoscopic images.

   Implemented text scaling in the Print/Export panel on Mac.
