    • Create the Bible Notes Document - "Create your own commentary"

      Add a Document called "Bible Notes" and whenever we make a comment on a passage, make "Bible Notes" - if it is open - an option for us to save our comments there. And have them appear IN BIBLICAL ORDER - even under the headings [Genesis, etc].

        • Recognize the Language in the Preferred Bible and use it when inserting verses into a Docx.

          I am a Missionary in Bolivia and work in both English and Spanish. There are 2 challenges I face when Using Logos.

          1. When inserting verses in Microsoft Word, I have to put in the English spelling to get the text from my preferred Bible which is Spanish. Then I have to change the reference in my document to from English to Spanish. The verse is quoted in Spanish, but for some reason the name of the book is not recognized when using Spanish.

          2. In sermon Editor, the same thing happens. However, in the notes you cannot change the…

          • give the option of setting preferences in the "Tools".

            I like the Quickstart Layout but would prefer being able to access those contents from my study pages by, for example, changing preferences in "Tools" so that the things I want from Quickstart, like Hebrew Word Study are at my fingertips rather than having to go back to my homepage. Quickstart should rather be Quickaccess.

              • sermon editor: change default export settings

                Please allow us to reformat the default export setting.
                A sermon handout will be different than a classroom handout. The default setting is very limited in its adaptability to context.
                Would also be nice to insert our church's logo to the export settings, this would help maintain our visual branding.

                • Allow Lectionary to Show Only Sundays

                  The lectionary that I use has festivals and commemorations included in the Lectionary, so sometimes I cannot see what the readings for the upcoming Sunday are without manually editing it. It would be nice if there was a feature to default it to show the upcoming Sunday lectionary readings as opposed to the next lectionary reading.

                  • Selecting multiple resources in collections with the CTRL and Shift keys, and dragging the selected group adding it to +Plus these resources

                    I might be missing something, but I can't seem to add groups of selected resources to "+ Plus these resources" in collections.

                    I understand that there is a "rule system" (e.g. https://wiki.logos.com/Example_Collections) but really, I noticed that if one has many resources, Logos constantly checking for "updates" to library to add books of that particular rule really eats away at the computer (and I have a quite capable computer). However, when I put resources "statically" (manually) one by one in different collection destinations, eliminating all "rules", the program suddenly went smooth as butter.

                    But say that if Ihave the…

                    • Logos 4 Mac Missing Important Windows Highlighting Option

                      In Logos 4 Mac, you cannot vary the THICKNESS of the line being used to underline text in a verse.
                      In Logos 4 Windows under the "Highlighting Menu" it allows you to create custom lines of varying thicknesses and also various colors.
                      This is extremely useful as a highlighting feature. It allows you to choose any thickness or any color of line to underline your text.
                      Logos 4 Mac desperately needs this same function, which is currently available only in Logos 4 Windows.

                      • Tablet & touchscreen features for personal study and presentations

                        I'd like to see Logos and Proclaim incorporate table touchscreen features for a couple of simple reasons.
                        1st, being able to take notes in written form (which could be kept in written form or transitioned into typed format) for easier note taking. This would help with personal study time, helping the user with "the old way" of reading and studying the Bible vs. typing it all out along with the process/time needed to select highlighting/underlining/mark ups within the current system. I believe this would also assist in the personal intimacy we should have during our quiet times. Simply put, it…

                        • Acronym Definitions

                          I would like to see you add a link on the Help page for Logos on IOS that would provide a table defining all the acronyms used when you do a search. Many of the acronyms listed under the “Basic Search” category are rather cryptic so it makes it difficult to limit your search to a specific resource. Further it would be useful under the drop down for the Basic Search to highlight perhaps multiple library resources rather than the only choices being “entire”, “recent”, “Top Bibles” etc.

                          • This program is a disaster. It's by far (several times) the slowest program on my computer. I use various Adobe programs so I should know.

                            You need to totally revamp this. I have been working on computers 31 years and this has flummoxed me completely. I cannot find the program I bought, never mind access it. I don't know what you are trying to achieve. A disaster if ever I saw one. Are you trying to spread the good news or conceal it????????

                                The maximum read aloud speed of 2X is much too slow. I have an enormous amount of reading to do, and I am an auditory learner. I take it in FAST! This 2X max slows me down, costing me a lot of time I could be spending with my family or doing more reading. I have sadly had to purchase books from other online sources that allow for faster read aloud speeds because I needed to save the time. I would much rather have had those books in my logos library. Considering the large amount of money I spent to…

                                  I see that this idea was previously floated in 2014 but has now been closed, not sure why? I am proposing it as I often move around layout to layout when preparing a message, especially within the synoptic gospels. It would save an extraordinary amount of time and messing around.

                                  • Add a shortcut key for clippings.

                                    It would make the workflow of highlighting and adding to clippings much more efficient.

                                    As far as "which clipping file?" - the shortcut can use the most recently used clipping file.

                                    • Create Visual Filters from Word Lists

                                      I have created a few visual filters now where it's based on a list of lemmas. It is doable, but it is a pain. It requires making the word list, pasting the list in word or excel and adding the "lemma:" before and a comma after, then pasting it into the visual filter. Also, for long lists the filter is cumbersome and only takes so many items in each line for the visual filter or else it won't display properly. It would be really handy if Logos could allow us to build filters from word lists without leaving the program.
