Logos 6.4 SR-1

Bug Fixes


Fixed crash on launch when starting the application on Mac from the old alias Dock icon. Using the alias Dock icon will now properly launch the app, and the alias will be removed upon next launch. (Thread.)

  • Note: With this change, it is no longer necessary to run the app from the Applications folder after updating to 6.4.


Removed LLS:ALFGRKNTTXT from the Cross References section, as its notes are primarily based on vocabulary rather than thematic. (Thread)


Fixed crash caused by running a search for “John Wesley” while app was in offline mode.

Home Page

Fixed crash when opening Home Page on startup. (Thread)

Media Resources

Fixed issue where LLS:EASYFORUSAY would repeat the pronounced word for each time it has been clicked. (Thread)

Before and After: Biblical Sites (Volume 2) Interactive

Added 4 new before and after images: (Thread.)

  • Ephesus Odeon
  • Altar of Zeus
  • Temple of Dionysus
  • Temple of Artemis.


Added the ability to run a Concordance on References made in a resource.
Added support for user-defined reference ranges.
Clicking one facet with multiple enabled on Mac will now set that facet as the only filter, to match Windows and desired behavior.
Ctrl+F/Cmd+F have been enabled for quickly finding a desired word in Concordance.

Narrative Character Maps Interactive (Volume 2)

Narrative Character Maps present the Bible’s familiar story arcs with a new visual perspective that makes sense of complex interweaving narratives. Color-coded character lines elegantly present the geographic location of key players through time. Volume 2 adds maps of Abraham, Isaac and the events depicted in 1 Samuel. (Thread.)

New Testament Manuscript Interactive

The new interactive allows you to explore all sorts of data about manuscripts. It is not about finding a particular reading of a particular verse, but more about learning about particular manuscripts or groups of manuscripts — learning about a library of manuscripts, not about readings within a manuscript. (Thread.)

Systematic Theology

Added a new Systematic Theology section to the default Passage Guide, structured similarly to the Grammars section. (Thread.)

  • This section is a classification of Biblical cross references to works of Systematic Theology. It can be sorted by Subject or Resource.
  • Sorting by Subject will group the results by relevant study, and then tradition a level below that.
  • Sorting by Resource will group the resources under their respective tradition, and then study.
  • Regardless of sort type, hovering over the title of a particular study will give a brief description of what the study is.
