• Update: Today is 5/23/24, and the issue I posted on 12/8/23 still has not been resolved. I copied and pasted that problem with the hopes that someone can help. I will also upload a screen shot to show the issue. Ever since the latest update, this feature, which I use every day, has switched to a weird cross between light mode and dark mode. That is, the background is still in dark mode, but the canvas itself is in light mode, so because my default setting is dark mode, my words are in the default setting, which is white, but since the canvas background is white, the only words I can see are the prepositions (because I changed those words to orange). Yes, I could change the colors of the words, but that is besides the fact. Not only does this defeat the idea of having dark mode, but I would have to go back and switch thousands of outlines just so I can see them. I hate this new layout. Can you please give us the option to switch it back to what it was prior to the update?
    1. I was able to get a copy of your document and I also see the problem. It looks to me like the text color is explicitly set to white, since when I change the text color it becomes visible. We'll keep looking to track down what is happening.
    2. Well, I found some really surprising behavior here. The "defaults" are only changed *when no nodes are selected*. To fix this problem for newly created documents: 1. Open a sentence diagram 2. Make sure no nodes are selected 3. Use the Text menu to change the color to black To me, when I click the color, it looks like nothing has happened, but I think that is the "expected" behavior right now. So click in faith and then test by creating a new document and inserting a passage. I don't think there is an easy way to fix old documents other than by selecting the nodes with Ctrl+A then changing the color to black. Any nodes that were intentionally set to another color would have to be reapplied.
    3. Yepper, that worked. Thank you. It does stink that all my old documents will need to be manually changed, but at least the new ones will not be such a hassle. Again, thank you.
  • I have updated the reading list Logos Sentence Diagrams. Please let me know what may need to be added to make it as complete as possible.
    1. Does anyone else have difficulty diagramming on Mac OSX? I've tried several times over the years on multiple OS's (currently on Sonoma 14), and once I add more than one or two lines to the diagram, I start getting the spinning color wheel. It's so bad, that every time I have tried in the past, I just gave up and hoped that the next version of Logos would improve it. I got so frustrated this evening that I downloaded Accordance just to see if there diagramming tool was any better. It was, though lacked some of what Logos is supposed to do with the tool. I'd prefer not to have to use two systems. Any thoughts?
      1. Are you able to share a document that causes this issue for you? You can also download the macOS logging utility and click the "Sample" button while you are getting the spinning color wheel and post the logs here.
      2. Link to the logging utility for Logos on macOS: https://fl.vu/LogosMacLoggingUtility

      1. It is kinda pathetic that there has been zero response to fix this issue as of 1/3/24
    3. It sure would be nice if we had the ability to use a dotted line when diagraming sentences so that we could connect the relative clauses.
      1. Thank you sooooooooo much.
      2. Do you have anything like this on Col. 1:15-17?
      3. I just picked a sample from shared documents ... I'd have to look at what all is out there.
    4. apparently Logos only wants you to work within their "world". no way to get to real word processing programs so that you can simply print the product you have created for use offline away from a screen. No support, no instructional tutorials of any substantive value apart from spending huge sums of money either with logos or their training "partners".
      1. Why don’t you just print the PDF?
    5. This is a total waste! There is no way to export diagrams to Word, they default to 11X14 even when you set the page to US Letter. All of my investment in Logos seems to be a complete waste!
      1. , I'm sorry you're having a difficult time. I've flagged this with our team, and someone should be reaching out soon to help.
      2. - the complex layouts that it's possible to create in sentence diagrams are often not reproducible in Word, which is one of the reasons why we only offer a PDF/XPS export. If you want to view your diagrams in Word, I suggest exporting them to a PDF and then importing the PDF into Word: https://www.adobe.com/acrobat/hub/how-to-insert-pdf-into-word.html
    6. The tool bar on the left does not move to allow me to access all the tools, is there a way to stack it or rearrange it?
      1. I'm looking for a way to rotate the words to line up with diagonal lines (e..g adjectives under the subject). Is that possible?
        1. Does Logos have an OT Hebrew Diagramming tool? I am working on diagramming Exodus 16:13-17 for a class project and have not done diagramming in more than 30 years. I have no clue what I am doing.
          1. L3mm31n thank you, is that a link or something?
