  2. When hovering over a Bible reference show two instead of only one translation (one under the other). Allow us to enable this with a checkbox in the Settings and a dropbox for choosing the secondary translation. It would be very useful, for example, to have one reference showing the original text and another a translation.
    There is the option to hit F7 and show 5 translations, but this is hardly as quick and convenient.

  3. If you open the table of contents window (to the left) and read one or more large sections, such as Genesis and Isaiah in the Bible, it expands and lists all the chapters. You have to then scroll around wasting time to find the right location or close several individual books. It would be more efficient if a "collapse all" feature were available to help restore the table of contents to its original state.

  5. When a verse is added to a clipping there is no way of knowing just by looking through the text that it has been added. This can be very frustrating if you think you have missed something and then have to trawl through all the clippings to find out if it was added in the first place

  8. L4 needs a sort field added to the library--one with Dewey Decimal System numbers. Since Logos provides a real library, you should also provide a way to organize it like a real one.

  9. This is a feature that would be infinitely helpful for tracking personal progress toward reading completion goals, etc. If you're like me there are tons of books you have access to in Logos but it's difficult staying focused on one book or author. I will start reading one thing, get distracted and veer off in some other direction on some other topic in some other book, before I know it, I'll be sitting there a few days later back at the book I started with days beforehand thinking "this is that book I started reading days ago and until just…

  10. It would be very useful if the Home Page is able to accommodate custom content through various internet entities like blogs other than the Faithlife/Logos blogs as well as RSS feeds and the like.
    Content can be limited to text only to eliminate security concerns.
    Link to community discussion: https://community.logos.com/forums/t/93566.aspx

    The discussion also suggests a feature that requires smart code to make it happen: automatically recognize citation styles and allow links to resources already in user's library or just for bibliography reasons.

  11. the current scrollbar cannot be used practically in a long book. So it should be improved.
    Suggestion:

    1) multiple scrollbar, each of them is having different range.

    2) to scroll through the current chapter, but then when it is at the bottom of the chapter, you click the "down arrow" or press the "page down", then it jumps to the next chapter (and of course the scrollbar will go to the beginning of that chapter instead). To press once page down is much more convenient than the current method: to press down/page down every time I want to move to…

  13. It is not currently possible to sort the library (whilst in Cover View) by more than four basic options (recent, most used, title and author). Please could you add all of the additional fields that it's possible to sort by in detail view eg. sort by type or tags etc.

    In addition, it would be useful to be able to drag the books around and sort by relative order on their own "shelves" (and have this be remembered) such that the library would work by more visual cues in the manner of a physical book case.

  14. I love my Logos and don't know what I ever did without it. I use it everyday. However I confess that I hang on to my Wordsearch simply because it includes the Thompson Chain Reference search capability. I have used the TCR since 1963 and to include it in Logos would be most helpful.

  16. I was hoping that when I copied and pasted text from a book in Logos 5 into Pages or Word for a paper that I am writing for school that I would get an in-text APA 6th citation i.e. (Lewis, 1953) rather than a footnote with full bibliographic footnote. I was hoping that YES on Citation and NO on Footnote would set this up but it appears not.

    Example of what I am getting:

    According to the Tanakh and the New Testament the goal of God’s Messianic Community (which Christians call the Church) is to praise, thank, confess, obey and…

  17. Here's the problem: When you float a window - and then you would like to dock it again, Logos 4 doesn't seem to remember where it came from so it docks it wherever it wants to.

    The way it works now is unpredictable because the floating windows go wherever they want when you dock them.

    Make the floating window dock back exactly where it came from.

  18. Please expand "Inductive/Precept" highlighting palette (or add another one) with Kari Dent's Key Word Symbol additions => https://karikingdent.com/key-word-symbols/

    Forum thread "Moving Precept Symbols Into A New Palette in Logos 7" => https://community.logos.com/forums/t/134154.aspx has discussion about Kari Dent's PDF files not being readily convertable into styles for Logos and Verbum highlighting use.

    Forum reply => https://community.logos.com/forums/p/134175/871997.aspx#871997 shows all of Kay Arhtur's Inductive Precept symbols are in the "Inductive/Precept" highlighting palette as of Logos 6.13

  19. I would like to assign 1 or more resources types to a panel within a layout so that there is control for opening a resource of that type. For example, one panel might be assigned as 'Dictionaries', another 'Notes' another 'Commentaries' , or 'Resources', 'Bibles'. When a new resource is opened from the PG, library or button bar, it should open in the panel assigned to that type of resource, or default to whatever scheme is currently used by Logos (I have no idea what that is since it follows no apparent logic - it is not 'like with like',…

  20. I have a Core i3 computer with an SSD drive. Even so, Logos always takes between 20 and 30 seconds to start up, and it is not strange that it take 35 or 40 seconds to startup!

    BTW, these are the time that I get even with the option to "Show Homepage on Startup" turned off (which does slow things down further, but at least it's clear why).

    I recently discovered that if I simply turn off the option to "Use Internet" in Logos settings, that my startup time dropped down to a mere 9 seconds! That is very acceptable.…
