Logos 8.7 Beta 1

Released: July 16, 2019

New Features
  • Context Menu redesign
    • The Context Menu in resources has new styling, and is now laid out left-to-right.
    • Highlights are now available on appropriate contexts. The Highlight button opens the Highlighting tool; the 5 most recently-used styles are available to create a new highlight immediately.
    • Reference > Copy now has new styling options for copying the verse content. Previous functionality to style with last-used CBV style is represented by the “Styled” button, and the “More>>” button opens the Copy Bible Verse tool.
    • The command options below now use buttons instead of lists to reduce space on screen:
      • Search
      • Copy
    • Look up is now a collapsible list. Clicking the header opens the first lookup destination.
      • Known Issue: Slow performance getting lookup destinations blocks the rest of the command UI from loading.
  • Look Up
    • The Look Up command will now fall back to Everything search when it cannot find a Headword.
  • Print/Export
    • Added the ability to only print text that has been filtered.
      • When the filter is active, the print/export panel will only display Table of Contents entries and Milestone ranges that intersect with the filtered hits.
  • Resource Text Selection Menu
    • Added a new Copy Bible Verses option called “Styled” that uses the last used style from the Copy Bible Verses Tool.
    • The Search command will now always open a search panel.
    • The Study command will now open the appropriate guide (i.e. a phrase like “Kingdom of God” will open up a Topic Guide) and fall back to Everything search where applicable.
  • Tools
    • Added the ability to drag-and-drop Guides and Tools pinned icons in the Guides and Tools menus.
New Features for Windows
  • Search
    • Allow “Match case” and “Match all word forms” to both be enabled simultaneously. Enabling both will find forms of the search term that have the “same” case. For example, searching for “Love” will find “Loved” and “Loving” but not “love” or “LOVE”.
    • Known Issue: This still needs to be implemented on Mac.
