How do I type in Greek and Hebrew?
We recommend using the Tyndale Unicode Font Kit, which uses OS X's built-in multi-language support.
I just purchased a downloadable book. Where do I put the book file?
Resource files belong in Macintosh HD/Library/Application Support/Libronix DLS/Resources on the startup volume.
What is the Logos Bible Software for Mac engine?
Logos Bible Software for Mac, like the Windows version, is composed of two main parts: the engine (i.e., the Libronix Digital Library System) and digital books. The five Mac base packages include both the Mac engine and various collections of digital books. If you already have one of our Windows base packages, all you need to start using your books with our Mac software is the Mac engine, which can be purchased for $59.95.
If I buy one of the five Mac base packages, do I also need to purchase the Mac engine?
No. The five Mac base packages all include the Mac engine.
Why are you charging for the Mac engine?
We are charging a small crossgrade fee for the Mac engine to help offset some of the huge developmental costs to build Logos Bible Software native for Mac from the ground up.
Can I get the Mac engine for free?
Yes. If you buy one of our five Mac base packages, the Mac engine will be included at no additional cost.
If I crossgrade from the Windows version to the Mac version, will I still be able to use the Windows version?
Absolutely. As long as you are using the software, and it is installed on up to two of your personal machines, you may install and use both the Windows version and the Mac version at the same time. In fact, the DVD containing the Mac software can be used to set up Logos Bible Software on both platforms.
Do you have a comparison chart of the Mac base packages like you do with the Windows packages?
Not yet. We'll try to get one put together soon. But the contents of the Windows base packages are identical with the contents of the Mac base packages, with the exception of the syntax clause display resources and some of the addin functionality. When it comes to digital books, the Windows comparison chart should be a fairly reliable guide for Mac base packages as well.
What are the differences between Scholar's Library for Mac and Scholar's Library for Windows?
In terms of licenses, there are no differences. The licenses that you get when you buy a Mac base package are identical to the licenses you get when you buy the same base package for Windows (including all the licenses to resources, addins, datasets, etc.).
In terms of usable resources, however, some do not yet work on the Mac version, most notably the three syntax clause display resources. Since you still get the licenses to these resources, you can use them on the Windows version if you want, or you can use them on the Mac version once we add support for them.
In terms of addins and functionality, Logos Bible Software for Mac lacks some of the features of Logos Bible Software for Windows. You can see a fairly exhaustive list of features on the Mac engine page.
