Bug Fixes

  • Bible Word Study
    • Fixed hangs when clicking translation graph for a frequent word by a) optimizing the display, and b) reducing the default number of hits that are shown. 
    • Fixed Preposition Use graph to display correct hotspot for preposition "?" ("in").
    • Grammatical Relationships setting change to "Verses" will now be saved.
    • Lemma is now displayed in correct form when hovering over preposition in Preposition Use section. 
    • Rich text in Septuagint Translation section has been optimized. 
    • Textual Searches section will launch Morph search on results for Bibles and non-Bibles (using the "content-verse" document level), with result text changed from 'articles' to 'verses'.
    • Translation section will now generate results on a word from the NA27 w/GRAMCORD.
    • When using the "Send searches here" option, a search run from the Textual Searches section will clear the existing settings as appropriate.
  • Biblical People
    • Current person is now highlighted when switching diagrams.
  • Clause Visualizer
    • Fixed bug that prevented correct navigation in "The Hebrew Bible: Andersen-Forbes Phrase Marker Analysis (0.90)."
  • Clippings
    • Fixed bug that prevented the "Add a clipping to ..." context menu option from working with a resource with a hyphen in its ID (e.g., LLS:AWP-ANTH).
  • Collections
    • Fixed bug that caused the Open Collection drop-down list to shake when clicked. 
    • View state is persisted after closing and reopening panel.
  • Compare Pericopes
    • Fixed bug that caused the last verse to get clipped with screen resolution at 1280x800. 
  • Copy Bible Verses
    • Default Font is now preserved with Copy and Paste of Hebrew text.
    • Fixed crash (InvalidOperationException) that could occur when opening CBV while working in a layout.
    • Only the top line of an interlinear Bible is copied (default top line), rather than multiple lines that run together. Manual copy and paste will still bring over lines currently enabled in resource.
  • Exegetical Guide
    • Fixed crash (InvalidOperationException) that could occur when running an Exegetical Guide on Ezekiel 36.
    • "Include only these parts of speech" radio button, in Exegetical Guide Word by Word section, is automatically selected when a 'parts of speech' box is checked. 
  • Favorites
    • Items can now be dropped any place in the Favorites panel rather than just after the last entry. An insertion line is visible at the drop point. 
  • Graph Bible Search Results
    • Last used chart is remembered, rather than defaulting to 'Bar Chart'.
    • Percentages are now rounded rather than having multiple decimal places. 
    • Two statistical category names have been corrected: "Number of Verses with Hits in Chapter / Number of Verses in Chapter" and "Number of Verses with Hits in Book / Number of Verses in Book." 
  • Highlighting
    • Fixed bug that prevented pre-defined styles from being applied when Spanish UI in Logos 4 was enabled.
    • It is no longer possible to delete a style by executing Undo. Now Undo will only restore a deleted palette/style, and redo will re-delete them.
    • With text selected in a resource display, but with a note text box focused, Ctrl+K no longer applies a highlight in the resource. It focuses the hyperlink box, as expected.
  • Home Page
    • Fixed bug that could cause Content preferences to be overwritten after they were modified on one computer and Logos 4 was opened to home page on second computer where Content preferences had not been changed.
    • Fixed bug that caused the Lectionary hover popup to always display the Revised Common Lectionary (when hovering over the date and season) or the Catholic Lectionary (when hovering over the title of the day), even though the prioritized Lectionary was displayed correctly on the ribbon.

  • Reading Plan
    • Fixed bug that caused the 'day of the week' and 'finishing' settings to become deselected, resulting in an empty reading plan.

    • Fixed bug that could cause some citation style previews, on information panel, to be static, when panel was wide enough to display citation styles inline, rather than as drop-down list.
    • Fixed crash (AccessViolationException) that could occur when clicking a URL in a footnote popup.
    • Fixed crash (ArgumentException) when selecting a parallel resource from PRS drop-down which does not contain the current reference.

  • Rich Text Editor
    • Added tooltip when hovering over hyperlink that shows the destination of hyperlink and the instruction to execute the link (Ctrl+Click to follow link). 
    • Font color is not currently supported, so colored text copied from a word processor will not include that color when pasted into rich text editor.
    • Font colors (such as red letter Words of Christ) will be removed from copied resource text. This will be revisited later.
