Lemma in Passage

Note that this feature requires an internet connection, as data is provided by a Logos service.

Added a new section which features lemmas which are discussed in a resource, as opposed to used in a resource. For example, a commentary discussing the use of ἀγαπάω instead of just searching for when ἀγαπάω is used in the original language texts.
This section appears in the Passage Guide, Exegetical Guide, and Bible Word Study. It has a different function between PG/EG and BWS:
Passage Guide/Exegetical Guide:

  • Provides lemmas discussed for a given reference range.
  • Results can be viewed by Lemma or by Resource.
  • Results are sorted by count, and list the lemma alongside the context in which it’s discussed.

Bible Word Study:

  • Provides discussions of a lemma in commentaries ordered by Bible reference.
  • Results can be viewed by Passage or Resource, and are grouped and ordered by Biblical book.

Multiview Resources

Fixed a bug where the Mulitview Resource button would disappear if you have applied a filter and change to a parallel resource.
Fixed an issue where shortcut keys for Highlighting weren’t working in guest resources. (Thread)
Fixed an issue where guest resources with dynamic text (Faithlife Study Bible) didn’t reflect the text in the host resource. (Thread)

Reader’s Edition Interlinear

This tool enables users to hide interlinear information for most commonly used words and for words in a given word list. This is geared to help you learn to read original languages more naturally. This works only with original language interlinears.
Known Issue:
Filtering within the Interlinear Menu does not include the Reader’s Edition on Mac.

Sympathetic Notes Visual Filter

  • Not enabled by default, and only an option in word numbered resources (e.g. original language Bibles or modern Bibles with reverse interlinears).
  • Shows notes and highlights attached to other resources as if they had been attached to the active resource (e.g. highlights in SBLGNT can be shown in any translation with a reverse interlinear).
  • Sympathetic highlights are not searchable, they are only for display.
  • Sympathetic notes and highlights cannot be erased or removed. They can be hidden by disabling the visual filter, or removed via the note document or the attached resource.


Added a Deuterocanonical Dataset which enables Reported Speech, Speakers, and Addressees for Deuterocanonical resources.

New Features

  • Psalms Explorer Dataset
  • Proverbs Explorer Dataset

  • Bullinger’s Figures of Speech

Context Menu

Added Sermon Themes and Literary Typing data to the Context Menu.
Added Morph Phrase Searching to Inline Search for original language resources.

Added the ability to search for user created Labels from the Context Menu.

Updated search suggestions to reflect the updated functionality within the software including:

  • Language
  • Tags
  • Factbook
  • Preaching Theme

Program Settings

Added Copy Footnotes As setting. This setting has the following options:

  • Auto – Footnotes will be copied to the clipboard in a format compatible with most word processors.
  • Footnotes – Footnotes will be copied as footnotes. This requires full footnote support in the target application.
  • Text – Footnotes will be copied as regular text. This works well with applications that don’t support footnotes.

Reference Range Picker

Improved the reference range picker (“All passages” dropdown in Bible Search, Morph Search, etc.) to function more similarly to the resource picker.

  • You can now enter a custom reference range in the upper entry box, and a button to “Save” will appear
  • Previously saved custom ranges will be retained from the previous picker implementation

Bug Fixes

Copy and Paste

Removed the 50 character restriction on adding a footnote to create a more consistent user experience.


Fixed a bug where this tool didn’t retain your progress when changing between courses.
Fixed a bug that made the video panel navigate to the table of contents when scrolling through the course.
Fixed a bug where the tool defaulted to the DIY Study Bible instead of the last viewed course.


Fixed a crash when pasting bad data from the clipboard into a note.

Resource Panel

Fixed issue where the state of the Interlinear pane wasn’t being preserved. (Thread, Thread)
Fixed an issue where the Word by Word indicator didn’t follow along with the Greek Audio New Testament.
Fixed bug where hovering over resource tabs didn’t display the Resource Tip information.

Search Results

Fixed a bug where Syriac wasn’t displaying properly on search results. (Thread)


Fixed Updater to wait until Indexing has finished when installing application updates.
Fixed issue where the message “Checking for updates...” would not appear when changing update channels. (Thread)
Fixed an issue where Logos wouldn’t open after updating.

Known Issues

Personal Book Builder

Closing the Personal Book Builder panel crashes the software. This will be resolved in Beta 2.

Search, Bible Word Study, Visual Filter Documents

Custom saved reference ranges for the “All Passages” reference picker can currently only be deleted in the panel in which they were created. This will be resolved in Beta 2.


If your system installed the update and yet when you restart, the old version runs, and it tells you no updates are available. Please post your Logos.log file on the Thread and then run Repair in Programs and Features. This affects Windows users only.
