Logos 6.3

As part of the 6.3 update, there have been changes to installed components:


Fonts are no longer installed separately and the Logos Prerequisites have been removed. This should not affect fonts within Logos, as they have been bundled into the application. If you had been using Logos-installed fonts outside of Logos, they will have to be manually installed. See this page for details.

Logos Now

Items in this section are available with a Logos Now subscription. Improvements and bug fixes listed further down are freely available to all users.


Added two new types of concordance: Sense and Biblical Entity.
Added lemma and root concordances to reverse interlinear resources.
Improved the refinement sidebar:

  • Added a “Frequency” refinement, allowing you to filter results by the minimum and/or maximum number of times they appear in a text.
  • The refinement column can now be expanded and collapsed.
  • Added scrolling to the sidebar panel on Mac.

Added options for “Group results by sense” to Concordances by Lemma, and “Group results by lemma” to Concordances by Sense on Mac.
Merged highlighting for adjacent words and words with no alignment. (Thread.)

Known issues:

  • This release adds new concordance types which require the Concordance to regenerate the first time it is run for a resource.
  • The Concordance takes significantly longer to generate, especially for Bibles with Reverse Interlinears. Good news: once it is done generating, there is a lot more interesting data available for concording. We plan to spend some time optimizing generation in a future release.

Grammars Guide Section

The Grammars guide section has been completely redone, and presents information similarly to the Ancient Literature section.

  • In “By Subject” view, grammars are grouped by Type. In “By Resource” view, grammars are organized by language. These groups can be expanded/collapsed.

There is a new “Grammatical Constructions” Guide section backed by the Greek Grammatical Constructions dataset:

  • This subsection provides cross references to the Guide key, sorted by grammatical construction type.

Changing the Settings for the Grammars section will now automatically refresh and update the section, rather than requiring a manual refresh. (Thread)
Added tooltip to definitions to terms in Greek Grammatical Constructions Guide Section.

Media Browser

Video links from the Media Browser should now open properly regardless of what browser they open in. (Thread)
Fixed crash when opening Media Browser offline.

All Logos 6 Users

The following items are available to all Logos 6 customers.



Improved the way resource updates are handled.

  • Resource updates no longer require a restart.
  • Hiding or unhiding a resource no longer requires a restart.
  • When updates are detected with Auto-Update enabled in Program Settings, resources will download and discover automatically. You may see “Preparing library...” in the notification bar. With Auto-Update disabled, you will see a notification with a download link, as before.
  • New resources will show up in the library as they get downloaded and discovered (without having to wait for all downloads to complete).
    • Updated resources will likewise be available for use as they are downloaded and discovered.
  • The “Updated Resources” box on the Home Page will update when resources are downloaded.
  • Resources that are updated while open, as well as application updates, will still require a restart.
  • NOTE: If you are waiting for an update to finish downloading, you will need to leave the application running. Once indexing begins, you can exit the application, and indexing will continue in the background as before.

Searching All Resources, as well as the Collections guide section, will now display thumbnails in courseware resource hits that link to the media resource associated with that course.

  • Example: A hit in the resource text for OT101 will now include a thumbnail to the video for that article in the course.


Restyled the ‘Semantic Roles’ section just like the ‘Referred to As’ section.


Added “By Author” sort to the Journals section of Passage Guide.

Home Page

Added Faithlife Websites option in the settings menu that will enable/disable the three site banners “Bible Screen, Bible Study Magazine and Faithlife TV” on the Home Page sidebar.


Improved the panel for editing and tagging multiple selected resources:

  • Replaced the old tagging editor with the newer one, to match single resource tagging.
  • Added a section that lists all tags applied to the selected resources, with a count for each tag.
    • Hovering over the tag gives the option to “Apply to all” or delete that tag.
    • There is an “Advanced” section, which gives the option to Unify tags (apply all tags to all selected resources) or Clear all tags.
  • Added “Save as Collection” and “Save as Bibliography” options to the panel.
  • Series and Devices are now collapsible sections.

Personal Book Builder

Made changes to the PB list view to more closely match Library:

  • Removed the blue selection border on the left
  • Books now have a light blue background when the mouse is hovered over
  • Selected books now have a darker blue background to differentiate from the rest of the list

Resource Information

Added the reading progress completion circle and percentage description to the Resource Info panel.


Improved performance of opening resources in a Series, by preventing the opening of resources that can’t be used for navigation. (Thread)

Reduced the amount of time it takes for search results with a large number of hits to display, which was also freezing the UI. (Thread)

  • Example: Expanding the Library Results section of a Basic Search for <Topic Love> went from ~4 seconds to <1 second on Windows (Mac was already faster).
