- I have noticed for many years now that people will post a question and someone will answer it and there is no response or a thank you and I can only guess that the person never came back to the group again. When I view your podcast there is a comment section at the end where you can comment and then you can check a box to be notified by email when someone replies and I think that is what is needed here. Now I check these groups everyday but most people do not ; so why not offer a box to be checked (all groups) that says notify me when someone replies. If its already there I missed it.
- Noticed some issues with Sermon Editor - Making slides from text that are in "quotation mark" shows up as "quotation mark" when you right click the slide click edit. Both the Body Text and what is displayed on the slide displays this way. I can edit the code out and put "" just fine, although no one should have to do that. :)
- Translation idea for Faithlife/Logos: Let's get the works of Johannes Oecolampadius into English. I heard a very interesting interview with Diane Poythress, who has written a much needed book about this important reformer. Her book is here: http://bit.ly/2pTx3av and the interview is here: http://bit.ly/2pTzV73 In her book, Poythress provides her own translation of portions of his commentary on Isaiah in an appendix. She deliberately seeks to prime the pump by encouraging other translators to focus on Oecolampadius.
- [Note: My apologies if this is already discussed. I can't find a way to search the posts on this page to see.] Kindle & Logos Library - Hack, but Anyone Interested in More? In my 2500+ book Logos library, I've got great books for targeted research. By and large, they are tomes I will never read cover to cover. However, I also have a small collection of these that are excellent books that I do want to read cover to cover - like this month's $1.99 deal "Jesus Through Middle Eastern Eyes" by Kenneth Bailey (an excellent book by the way! Because there are some books that I want to read word for word, I was so sad when Amazon took away the ability to send books to the Kindle - as I'd much rather read on the Kindle then on my phone, tablet, or computer. I was thrilled to figure out recently that I could use the Experimental Browser on my Kindle to login to www.biblia.com and read the books there. While I can't highlight, it's a much more pleasant reading experience. What that had me wondering is if there might be some enterprising coders out there that would be interested in working on a project similar to Reabble.com. Reabble takes a Inoreader account and uses the browser on a kindle ot make it kindle friendly with touch zones for the next article, the menu, etc. I'm wondering if something similar could be done that takes the book from Biblia.com and creates zones for turning the page, going to the table of contents, going to the library, etc. Any thoughts? Anyone interested in seeing what it might look like to tackle? https://www.logos.com/product/36458/jesus-through-middle-eastern-eyes-cultural-studies-in-the-gospels
