  1. Expand Inductive Precept Key Word Symbols for Highlighting

    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

    • Add Systematic Theologies to Factbook

      Systematic Theology section in the passage guide is great, but using the Factbook when using a theological term the systematic theology section should be available. Add the section to the Factbook.

      • Create a database of biblical issues and stances with faceted browsing and graphical functionality.

        I’d like a database of biblical issues and stances with faceted browsing (allowing sorting and filtering), as well as graphical functionality.

        For a longer description and justification, see https://community.logos.com/forums/p/133058/865216.aspx#865216.

        For example, facets could include Country, Date, Denomination and Stream, Type of Work (e.g. technical commentary, devotional commentary, academic study, popular paperback, sermon); issues could include all the debated points discussed in the major commentaries or outlined in works such as SIL’s Exegetical Summaries (https://www.logos.com/product/38965/exegetical-summaries-series).

            "We will not be developing a desktop/offline application for Linux.
            https://app.logos.com continues to improve and will be our solution for any platform that supports a web browser."

            Which is ONLY available by paid subscription, and ONLY available while online. This is not opening up your library (which must be purchased) to the largest audience possible.

            Please consider one of these two better options that could be used in a future version of LOGOS:

            1. AVOID frameworks that are NOT multi-platform (ie: using Internet Explorer components [report display engine]). Instead, use available multi-platform options like Firefox or Chromium.

            • Add Evangelical Commentary on the Bible to the Bible Outline Browser

              Can the Evangelical Commentary on the Bible be added to the Bible Outline Browser and to the Outlines section of the Passage Guide? This resource has really great outlines of biblical books and I always have to open it separately because it's not in the outline section of the Passage Guide or the Outline Browser. Also, since this commentary is a pretty standard resource in the base packages it would make a great addition to the outline browser tool. https://www.logos.com/product/183/evangelical-commentary-on-the-bible

              • LN Preview Items Preference Toggle

                I get to the point where I think it would be worth NOT SUBSCRIBING TO LOGOS NOW just to keep the dumb temporary resources from downloading. Please create an opt out feature for those of us who would prefer not to preview resources. This could be a "preference" within the software which prevents the download, or a toggle in the user's account preferences. Thank you.

                • Show TWO Translations for Scripture References

                  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.

                  • enable escape button to take user to the entry line for the active resource.

                    So, for example, if you are in a Bible on John 1:1 and you want to go to Genesis 1:1, the user will be able to hit "esc" then type in the new reference. Otherwise the user has to remove their hand from the keyboard, find the cursor on the screen and move it to the entry box then type. Honestly, without this feature I will never use Logos much. Biblework's use of this feature makes searching super fast and easy. Without it Logos is bulky and slow.

                    • Add Label Entry feature to the Context menu

                      Label Entry is a powerful Logos feature that will see greater accessibility and usefulness by adding this feature to the context menu. Assigning a predefined set of labels will streamline this feature. Its present form as it appears in the Highlighting menu should not be altered. Please see this thread for discussion on the merits of this recommendation. https://community.logos.com/forums/p/136209/882498.aspx#882498

                      • Change Vyrso

                        I struggle to find a use for Vyrso as it functions much like the Faithlife and Bible apps. What I would like to see is a reading app much like Kindle. I use the other apps when I do study but there are many books in my library that I would simply like to read as a book. None of the apps support this function well. I would like to use Vyrso for this purpose. Create a "presently reading" panel that I can pin books to, remember my place, and quickly resume reading.

                        • Import Reading Plan from file

                          I would like to create a custom Reading Plan from a text file (XML in text or Word file), similar to the way custom Lectionaries are input. I would use actual calendar dates and resource links. I would be fine with importing the Reading Plan from all the dates and links in a custom Lectionary.

                            Logos is an amazing program and there seems to be a nexus with some of the tagging that results in a new tool. Take for instance the "Bible Browser." A lot of this tool is just helping with the searching already in place but a bit complicated. It's brilliant for new users and old users who just want to get to the data.

                            This brought me to the idea of a "Commentary Browser" Let me explain. I run a passage guide on Romans 8:17 (my focus is the suffering), there are "Cross References" that I see may be relevant. So…

                            • Adjust the sermon builder to allow any Scripture passage to be input.

                              As the sermon builder is right now, it tries to pull a predefined Scripture passage from Logos. Except sometimes the two pieces of the whole Logos system aren't speaking well, and so it does not accept or recognize a Scripture passage. Further, the sermon builder will reject a passage that does not fit its predefined sections of text.

                              It should be as simple as typing "Ecclesiastes 12:13-14" into the box, not require waiting for Logos to pull recommended passages and then having to select one.

                                1. Highlight the word being spoken by the Narrator Voice in real-time as it is spoken. This is a very basic feature that would greatly enhance the listening experience. (I realize this is does exist for select audio book titles, but there is no real reason it can't exist for all titles licensed for Read Aloud functionality...see my comment below about Balabolka's functionality)

                                2. Fix scrolling issues. Currently when Read Aloud is engaged the active book scrolling only loosely follows the words read aloud. The narrator will often continue reading a paragraph or so below where the active book (the…

                                  Make a button in the right click menu where you can obtain footnote citation only. It would save a lot of time when writing papers.

                                  • Allow verses to be repeated in a Passage List

                                    I'm creating a passage list of Douglas Stuart's categorization of the curses and blessings in Leviticus Deuteronomy. He lists categories and references. In the Passage List I can create categories with headings, but some verses appear in more than one heading. However, the way passage list is constructed, a verse can only appear once in the list. There have been several times that I've tried to create categorizations of passages using Passage List and encountered this problem.

                                    • Make date format selectable to dd/mm/ccyy in sermon documents

                                      The "occasions" box in the Sermon Document changes all entries to a USA mm/dd/ccyy date format. This is confusing for the rest of the world which has dd/mm/ccyy. Please enable recognition of the differences for things such as date & spelling between USA & the rest of the world

                                      • Provide Details on Resource Updates

                                        Provide Details on Resource Updates
                                        Is it possible to provide resource update logs with more granularity as to what's been changed? It's disconcerting to see changes made to resources such as Bibles without knowing if the text itself has been modified.

                                        • When making a change to a "Layout" add confirming dialog box so changes are not lost

                                          When closing Logos or changes layout, add a dialog box that will allow saving changes to the plan. I am always adding a difficult to find the resource to my layout then closing without updating. The effect is losing that new resource and the changes I have made are also lost
