Importing Highlighting with Logos 4.0b

Well, I’m pretty unhappy with highlighting right now…

The short version is that the more markups you import, the slower the process on marking new text for highlighting… For me this meant a 30 second delay every time I tried to highlight something new… Unacceptably slow…

Initially I was pretty impressed, the markups that were imported looked good. Next I saw my custom markup palettes imported, tho they had a few minor glitches. (The import process does not like commas in the palettes, and broke up some of my markups oddly… I submitted a bug report at Logos.) I tried using them, but found the delay between marking text for highlights, and the actual marking almost 30 seconds. I found the same problem when trying to highlight using the built in palettes. Erasing highlights was just as slow. (Note: I also found out you cannot use ERASE on imported markups.)

Some things I tried to improve performance included disabling the Internet connection, MERGE INDEX, and then REBUILD INDEX, each of which took several hours to run. I closed Logos and rebooted between most steps. I tried IMPORT DELETE HIGHLIGHTING, then tested using the built in palettes, and the highlighting was almost instant. I then did a IMPORT HIGHLIGHTING. When complete, I closed Logos, rebooted, and was back up the the 30 second delay… I did the IMPORT DELETE HIGHLIGHTING again…


Experiences importing Libronix 3 user data into Logos 4.0b

Currently in a 2 week Easter break from my Bible studies, so have had time to try moving over my user created data. For those who don’t know, Logos 4.0b now supports importing your Favorites, Notes, Markups (Highlights), and Prayer Lists from Libronix 3.0g. Basic directions can be found here:

Some things to be aware of before you start:

  • Make sure you have upgraded to the latest versions of both Libronix 3 and Logos 4
  • Update to the latest resources versions in both systems
  • Run and close Libronix 3 at least once after installing/updating your resources, then run Libronix again to run the update toolbar
  • If you are using Libronix 3 and Logos 4 on the same computer, but on different partitions with different OS configurations (like I am), the IMPORT command may not be able to find where Libronix is located. (SCAN did not work for me.) If you find none of your files import, you may need to copy the copy the …\My Documents\Libronix DLS directory from the Libronix 3 OS partition to the …\My Documents\Libronix DLS in the Logos 4 OS partition, then run the IMPORT ALL again
