          • Better citations for articles & chapters from multi-author works

            Implement proper citations for journal articles, encyclopedia articles, and chapters from multi-author works when copying/pasting text. Currently Logos does a poor job of this, not citing the author of the article or chapter in question but only the editor of the entire work. For journals and encyclopedias the general editor should be left out and only the article author cited. For edited books, both the chapter author and the editor are normally cited. But see individual citation formats for the rules here. See such threads as http://community.logos.com/forums/t/11543.aspx and http://community.logos.com/forums/t/29583.aspx

            • Let Users set their own Default Study Layout.

              Let Users set their own Default Study Layout.

              Currently, if I go to Home, enter a Bible verse, then press "Go," Logos gives me a Study Layout with several windows of resources: Passage Guide, Exegetical Guide, Bible Translations and Commentaries. These are all very helpful.

              However, on the right side, two other windows also come up called Information and Text Comparison. For my purposes, neither is helpful. Rather, I find that ...

              1) they eat up valuable space which could otherwise be given to the Bible & Commentary windows, and
              2) they are annoying, because as I move my cursor…

              • Fully functional cloud based version of Logos

                I believe that most of the functions in Logos can in some way be replicated in the cloud. This would enable people to use any platform and would satisfy those who wish to use linux as well as those using Chromebooks. This is the future anyway, so why not get started now

                • Allow highlights to be displayed/applied to multiple Bibles, like 'notes' do already.

                  When I create and apply a highlight to a selection of text or whole verse, it would be wonderful if that highlight was also visible in other Bibles that I open up. I see that the notes I create are visible in other Bibles, but my highlights are not. Maybe even it there was a way to transfer the highlights or copy them to a different translation of the Bible would be great. I used to use OliveTree and this feature is built into their app (as long as you apply the highlight to an entire verse and not just…

                  • Make visual filter from passage list

                    Make a visual filter that highlights the verses in a passage list. This allows one to take something like All in Questions in the Bible, create a passage list which can create a visual filter to highlight all the questions. [example chosen to be understood - not a recommendation for actual use.]

                    • Make changes to Layouts menu

                      The new Logos 7 has a “Quickstart Layouts” heading at the top of the list. Is there any way to either get rid of this heading or move it to the bottom of the list? For programmers, this might seem like a useful feature, but I have been using Logos for a number of years and have set up my own preferred layouts which are far more important to me than the quickstart layouts. Their presence actually slows me down because I have to collapse the quickstart and/or scroll down to get to the selections that I want. In this…

                      • Include a way to turn off Quickstart and Home Page Layouts

                        I would like to make a request and a suggestion.

                        In the next iteration of LOGOS 7, PLEASE include a way to turn off Quickstart and Home Page Layouts.

                        I can see that it may be very helpful for those beginning in Logos, but frankly for those of us who have been users for years and have designed many layouts of our own and know what we want when we start the program, the quickstart and home page layouts only get in the way of what we know we want to do. It is very cumbersome every time I start…

                        • Key the French LSG to lexica via Strong's, LN and G/K

                          This feature will allow those who read the French Bible to look up the Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek words behind the LSG translation. In time it would be nice to have a French lexicon available but for the time being, even being able to identify the Strong number and look it up using the context menu.

                              It would be great if you would do with Systematic Theologies what you have done with Ancient Literature in the passage guide in L6. Under the Topic Guide, and/or under the Factbook, put a ST tab and link to all the sections of the Systematic Theologies that are in your library for the given topic.

                                IDEA: Have the ability to search for a slide background with keywords, like tree, green, verse. That should bring up the background that is green with a tree and has the ability to have verse reference and Bible version type. Make sense? That, or the ability to mark frequently used slides as favorites so that a user can find it easier when making multiple slides.

                                WHY THIS IS HELPFUL: I was just using the Visual Copy feature to make Bible Verse slides for a sermon. What I found frustrating was the lack of ability to search for the slide background…

                                    • Move software from desktop to online

                                      In my opinion, Logos is to big to be a desktop app. Its time to move to a better platform where it will be faster and easier to use. Maybe create some type of login for users. I believe they have tons of options such as Microsoft Azure or any other cloud based system. I believe you will have a better outcome.

                                      • "Journal" section of Guides fails to find many good articles

                                        The Journal section of Guides fails to find many good articles for two reasons:

                                        1) The Journal section only searches for Bible reference links in the title of the article. So if I use the Passage Guide to search the entire book of Romans, I only get one article in Themelios. However, all of JETS is overlooked, because (for some reason) all of the Bible references in JETS titles are unlinked. Also, linked Bible References of chapter (or sub) headings with Themelios are not found, which are often good references. The Journal section search should include not just Bible reference…

                                          The “Journals” section doesn’t just search for Bible references; it searches for articles tagged with a Journal label. This is intended to solve the problem of “a lot of extra hits I need to weed through”. This tagging is ongoing; see https://community.logos.com/forums/t/92625.aspx

                                          If you do just want to search for Bible references in a particular collection of resources, you can add a Collection section to any guide.

                                        • Make the Home Page Bible Study open to a study Template or at least let me personalize it.

                                          I love the Logos 4 Home Page Bible study but I would love to be able to personalize just what books and layout it opens to.
