Bible Software: Additional Thoughts on Logos 6

logoshomepageFather’s Day is just around the corner, I’ve just had my anniversary, and my birthday was shortly before then. It seemed like a good time to upgrade my Logos to the Silver module from the Bronze. I wanted some of the commentaries that Silver provides, along with some of the additional biblical languages resources, and the upgrade was the cheapest path. Besides, the salesman gave me an additional $90 off on the Anchor Yale Bible Dictionary. I couldn’t say no.

But Logos has always frustrated me. While it has some incredible tools, it can run slow on all but the fastest computers. It especially runs slow if you have several books open at once, and it has a way of leaving open each of the last several books you opened, bringing the software to a crawl. And closing each book one at a time is tedious beyond description.

By sheer happenstance, I came across this video on how to close multiple resources at once and how to scan through several commentaries or Bibles or dictionaries without filling the screen with dozens of books, jamming up even a very modern, fast computer.

This is a one-hour video, and I rarely take the time to listen to such a long lesson, but this one revolutionized my enjoyment of Logos, and so I thought I should pass it along to readers with Logos or who are considering Logos.
