Logos Bible Software 8

An experiment in user-ranking of feature priorities for Logos 8.

Visit our other UserVoice sites for mobile app feedback, www.logos.com feedback, Book Suggestions, and Community Pricing feedback.

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Import/Export notes to/from Evernote.

    It would be nice if Logos (both PC and iPad/iPhone/iPod versions) could import/export notes to/from Evernote. If possible the format should be compatible with OliveTree's BibleReader so the notes can be portable between applications.

  2. Focus on tablet and touchscreen features

    Better scrolling and program control with touchscreen gestures. Especially in reading mode the interface is difficult to use with a touchscreen. I want to be able to use Logos like my e-reader.

    I’m reopening this suggestion to allow voting. However, the comment below is still true; it’s highly unlikely that this will be implemented anytime soon.
    --
    It’s unlikely we’ll add support for embedded images in notes anytime soon; it would add a lot of bandwidth and storage requirements to our multi-platform notes syncing, as well as new UI issues.

  6. Logos 4 Mac Enhancements

    Please add full screen button for OS X Lion along with multi-finger gesturing for Magic Mouse, Magic TrackPad, and MacBook track pads on all supported Mac OS X versions.

  7. Night Mode for PC/Mac

    While I frequently use "Night Mode" to read on my ipad, I find that there are times that it would be immensely useful to have the same ability on a PC/Mac.

    Perhaps, in the "Resource Panel Background Settings" area you could add the ability to select a black background with white text when reading at night.

    Another route would be to make a simple button on the menu bar for "Night Mode".

  8. Create a digital copy of Bible Study Magazine

    Create a digital version of Bible Study Magazine so that we can receive it as a digital copy. I would like to be able to receive it digitally so that I can have it with me and receive new copies when I'm away from home. This would allow me to read it when I'm away from Home.
    A company called Book Baby can make a digital copy of a book for $99.00 and you can even get it in formats for iBooks, Kindle, Nook act. I would much rather receive it as a digital version than print.

  9. My Commentary

    I see this as a notes redo or alternate view actually; it would be nice to view and enter my notes like a commentary. As well as the ability to print them in that format. I see this as a Commentary template, choose my Bible version, and i can start commenting on each verse all in the same pane. I would like to see the verse text right above my comments. And maybe i can group the verse range if i want to comment on a range of verse? I would love this feature!

  10. Allow users to customize Shortcut Bar icons

    Shortcut bar icons are too limited and there is not enough variety for things like Logos commands. Please allow users to add custom icons to the dropdown box (or at least expand the choices!).

  11. Family Sub-User Accounts

    I have a beautiful wife and two great kids (7 and 3), I would love for them to use Logos too but in their own way.

    It would be great if the application allowed sub-users, maybe 5 for each master account so Kids etc can use logos and have their own set of notes and layouts etc without accidentally deleting mine :).

    Apple and Microsoft have similar features to this.

  12. Improve the highlighting function: bolder color, enable in footnotes, enable Ctrl+Z undo

    1. Offer a bolder yellow highlighter. The current yellow is like a faded marker.

    2. Allow highlighting in footnotes. For some reason they can't be highlighted.

    3. Enable all Ctrl-Z functionality. Seriously, this is an irritating problem. It's tricky to select exactly what one wants to highlight. If one makes a mistake, he has to go open up the tool, re-select, and erase. WORSE, I just made a very slight slip that ended up highlighting a whole large section. I had no choice but to erase it all... which meant losing all my previous highlighting. It should be subject to…

  13. Complete Access for blind users of Screen-reading Software.

    I ask that a system be set up to give screen-reading software like jaws for Windows special access to Logos, comparable to the way that Adobe allows screen-reading software to interact with PDF documents in a unique way. This would mean that a user could open any resource and read a letter, a word, a line or the entire passage, just as he would any other document. I'm asking for the same kind of access that sighted users have. I understand that though there were discussions about accessibility going into production of Logos 5, nothing substantive has been done in…

  14. Better Control of Multi-Book Volumes/Works

    Please
    1. Allow us to search for books within multi-work volumes from the Library Screen (perhaps have a sublist under multi-work volumes displaying the different books found within).
    2. Display which book within a multi-work volume a search result is found
    3. Allow us to limit searches within a multi-work volume to a specific book found within that volume.

    See http://community.logos.com/forums/t/29034.aspx

    More and more resources are being published as author-based collections were individual books are within a volume of works. This can be a problem when searching as results are displayed as being within a volume of a work and…

  15. Search for Hebrew vowel points, cantillation marks and patterns

    Please allow searching on Hebrew vowel points, cantillation marks, and patterns/combinations of these using wildcards.

    Just like "@" brings up the Morphology selection "dialogue", I suggest that typing "#" or "^" would bring up a "Nikkud" grid where te'amim & vowels would occupy the "Part of Speech" field.
    The vowels could be categorized according to length/family, while the te'amim would be divided by conjunctive and 4 levels of disjunctive force.

    This dialogue should be available in either Basic, Bible, or Morph searching. Combining Morph and Nikkud searches would be an AWESOME capability!

  16. Linked Commentaries The current implementation of linked commentaries has some difficulties in its

    Linked Commentaries

    The current implementation of linked commentaries has some difficulties in its use (Logos 4). When you cycle through commentaries using the left and right keys, the bible verse that is being linked to may change if the commentary you are viewing does not have the particular verse covered. However, if you cycle back to a commentary which does have that verse, your bible will move back to your original verse.*

    There are however some problems with this that make it really difficult for me to use.

    If you are in a commentary which does not cover the particular…

  18. Quote List Generated From Highlights

    One of my favorite features of the kindle is the ability to go to kindle.amazon.com after I finish a book and get a text file with all the hightlights that I made. It basically provides me a one-stop shop to review contents of the book.

    I am currently able to do this with Logos by jumping to the next highlight and working my way through the book. (Thank you for implementing my suggestion on this a few years ago). I like this way of doing it because I get the quotes in their context.

    But I think it would be…

  19. 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).
