Step 1: Download the Utility

  2. Open "".
  3. Copy the Verbum Logging Utility to the Applications folder.

Step 2: Run the Utility

  1. Open Finder.

Verbum version should match the recognized installed version.

Note: The Logging Utility will not record correctly if Verbum is running in the background when you enable logging. You may need to open the Finder: Applications > Utilities > Activity Monitor and manually quit the Verbum processes (Verbum Bible Software, VerbumIndexer and VerbumCEF if present).

Step 3: Recreate the Problem

  1. If Verbum is already open, quit and restart it.
  2. Recreate the problem, crash or bug.
  3. Click "Archive Logs" in the Verbum Logging Utility.
      If Verbum is freezing or "pinwheeling", use the "Sample" button instead.
