    Playing around with it for about an hour, I found these very basic, presumably easy to fix quirks/bugs.
    - Handwriting input panel doesn't work in notes (but does in prayer lists)
    - Dragging does not select text in prayer lists (but does in notes)
    - In home screen, dragging selects rather than scrolls
    - In a Bible, dragging scrolls rather than selecting texts
    - In Program Settings, dragging neither scrolls nor selects texts, and if you drag the slider bar, the page scrolls in reverse of how it scrolls if you grab the same slider bar with the mouse! You really have to try this one to believe it.

    A word to the developers - with touch, dragging up/down should scroll, whereas dragging left/right should select text. That works flawlessly in TheWord Bible software.

    I am also curious to know what improvements have been done on Logos 8, since there is no Logos 8 demo version.

    I just demo'ed Logos 7 on my Surface Pro 4.

    I was astounded to find that I could not add a user note using the Windows Handwriting Panel. The handwriting panel is built into Windows and works exactly like a keyboard. It works on every single application I have ever used... except Logos. I believe this to be more of a bug than an improvement - Logos should not even care whether the letters came from a physical keyboard or the handwriting panel. Windows did all the work, and something in Logos is blocking it!

    But, as mentioned, several other things make for a very bad touch experience. Scrolling by touch is sometimes laggy, sometimes aggressive, and sometimes seemingly nonexistent. Also, I can barely open a resource in touch. I can't just click on it - I have to click and hold to get the right click menu. Half the time I don't even get a right click menu - I just get information about the book. Many things aren't enabled to treat a touch as a click. So I tap on a window (x) to close it, but it doesn't register as a click. Also, the behavior seems to vary between different parts of Logos.
