I suggest you ...

PDF, docx files

Over the years in seminary, I have downloaded and collected many pdf and docx files. I would like to see Logos having the ability to search these files, make cross-reference, and make notes. If this cannot be done, another alternative is that Logos provides an internal program that would convert these files to native logos format.

        How big must my "please" be for it to have any effect?!! PLEASE add support for importing PDF files as well as .pages and Mellel files

        Adding PDF support would make Logos THE only Bible study software to have all the tools needed by pastors and laymen alike. Please add it! Thank you!

        PDF support with the option of also importing any notes, highlights, etc imbedded in the PDF.

        Would really be an asset to the program.

        I second the motion.

        Having to convert PDF's to DOCX, then import those into Personal Books is a needless two-step. And much of the PDF formatting is often lost during the conversion process.

        I agree having pdf search capability would be very helpful of added to Logos 5.

        I have hundreds of pdfs that I would LOVE to see in my logos library!

        Why don't you make it a pre-pub-kind-of-thing? I'm sure many of us would gladly pay a reasonable amount to get this functionality into Logos. If you got enough people excited (which I'm sure won't be hard) it should be easy to cover your development cost ahead of time.

        I give my vote for the PDF import. But please, consider also the .pages format for PBB; being a Pages user, I cannot add books in my Logos without buying Microsoft Word. Which is not fair.

        I convert PDF to docx via Adobe's own tool to do this. I've given a look to different alternatives and think Adobe is at least one of the best convertors. But still it will almost always give an output that lets Logos crash.
        The best way a've fount is to use a conversion to HTML as a step in between. Then open the html file in Word and most times the header-text will be in a specific letter-format. Let Word select all letters in this format and apply headings.

        This works but, especially when I want to create a neat document, it will take al lot of time.
        I've spent a lot of time trying to tackle this PDF-to-Logos problem in a simple and fast way, but I still don't see a good solution.
        When Logos would be able to create a more robust process to handle docx files, then the problem would be solved to.

        In my opinion, a PDF import functionality or PDF conversion functionality is not the biggest problem. The problem is that Logos crashes on certain characteristics of converted files.
        A good tool or suggestion how to straighten a docx file in such a way that Logos will accept it and not crash would also solve this issue. (By the way, the conversion to RTF and then open with word and save as docx again, also doesn't help in most cases, is my experience.)

        It would be nice if you could take a look to the other alternatives I mentioned above.

        As a seminary student, I keep getting readings (free complete documents, not book excerpts) in PDF format that I'd really like to import into Logos. Please reconsider.

        I would like to add my voice to those asking that this be reconsidered.

      • Wes CrouchWes Crouch commented  · 

        We ask in need of this ability, our church organizations send letters, books, other things that we are supposed to read, study, keep track of and it would be much easier to add them to Logos as a PBB than just keep them on a disk somewhere.
