Dear Sir,
I cannot view the letter q "khai" within the dictionary and hence I cannot search words containing that letter. Please advise...

thanks for comment!

i see now that unfortunately i have used nyi (ⳡ) instead of khai (ϧ) - this is represented in marcion by character 'K' (uppercase).
capital khai, is ok (Ϧ), but small is incorrect.
anyway, it should be only cosmetic problem, searching in dictionary and library still works. anyway, i will prepare patch with fix immediately.

iam not using bohairic, so i was not recognized that stupid mistake easily. thank you for big help.

Hello,

I tried Marcion and like it.  However, I'm curious as to what's up with the logo?  I ask because I'm curious as to the meaning behind the symbols there.

Hi, this is spiritual symbol based primarily on the Apocruphon of John, reflecting fight of light against darkness. Outer circle is the indestructible deity, outer pentagram is five shinings of Perfect Human - Pronoia, Prognosis, Aletheia, Aftarsia, Zoe. Inner pentagram is the Son of Man, inverted cross is true metanoia, metastrepsis - repentance. dragon is ignorant god of darkness, creator of ths world, Ialdabaoth. pearl is soul of light, for which Son of Man and Ialdabaoth are in war.

Thank you for your explanation Vagrant.

I figured I was looking at something there possibly symbolic of gnosticism of some sort or another.  As I mentioned in my post, I like the program.  I don't know if you've noticed, but Mr. Wells took down all his free stuff he went with the commercial Logos software modules.  I don't begrudge him the opportunity to make a financial return off his hard work, however that does reduce resources for the Coptic witness to scripture for those of us with an interest but not the money to shell out over a hundred dollars for the modules not to mention the Logos software itself.

Marcion fills the need right now for those of us of lesser means.  I am very appreciative of its availability.
