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".

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.

  1. Install only selected resources to save disk space

    I have an SSD hard drive on a laptop and I can't be downloading 5GB of files, then have logos create an index that is 6 GB. My Logos and related folders took 13GB of my 128GB total.

    Tech support said they don't have a solution.

    • Improve graphic viewing within

      Wouldn't it be nice to zoom in on a graphic within a resource, instead of saving and using an outside viewer to view it?

      • tag all the references properly in the Exegetical Summaries Series.

        The SIL Exegetical Summaries Series summarizes and organizes the content from major Bible commentaries and dozens of lexicons, making it invaluable for research. Combined with the tagging and linking power of Logos Bible Software, this has the potential to be one of the most powerful research tools available.

        Unfortunately, many of the links in these resources do not work properly. Sometimes the references are in Logos, but not linked. (For example, all of the Bible translations). Sometimes it takes several clicks to get to the resource you want. Other times it leads to bibliographical data, and not the resource in…

        • make it possible to MERGE or SPLIT notes files.

          I have large duplicate note files since new note files were started in Logos4 before my old ones were imported from Logos3. Also, with the horribly slow note editor in Logos4, I need to split large note files into smaller ones.

          • "Reimagine" Maps - Have Non-Static Maps

            I would like to see some renovations to the maps feature.

            1. Instead of a bunch of different maps, have just one basic map (whole Biblical world) background with the ability to turn overlay information off or on (like Google Earth). That way you can always have the same map up, and even compare different overlays by having them on at the same time (travels of Paul vs. travels of Peter).

            2. Have the map legend stay independent from the zoom level so you can refer to it even when you're zoomed all the way in.

            3. Independent cropping (for…

            • 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.

              • Library hierarchy and filtering

                Finding products in the Logos and Vyrso shops is easy. Finding resources in your own library is hard. It should be as easy as browsing the shops:

                Hierarchy by topic, especially for vyrso titles (Christian Living, bio, theology, fiction, children, teens and suitable sub categories.
                Filtering by author, language, denomination etc.

                I want just the same functions that I have in the various Faithlife stores already, just inside the application.

                • Speed up Logos/Verbum!

                  Without exaggerating, Logos is by far the most sluggish program on my computer. I have a fast i7 laptop, and anytime I open Logos, change the layout, open new resources, or do most kinds of operations, the program freezes for several seconds until it finally recovers and is workable again. Why is Logos so slow, considering that it mostly works with only text, not fancy graphics, video or sound?

                  • Floating window layouts

                    In addition to our Layouts in L4, it would be neat if we could have Floating window layouts which would open without disturbing our current layout. see http://community.logos.com/forums/p/22540/168161.aspx#168161 for more details on this idea.

                    • A tool that helps people find relevant application and change their lives

                      I suggest that we build a tool that could be included in the Guides called the “Application Finder” which specifically helps you to find relevant, modern day application immediately. The final step of Bible study often taught is application, and it’s often described as the most important step, yet there’s no distinct focus on that area, looking at all the tools we’ve built for Logos so far.

                      I work in Outbound Sales for Faithlife and I get a lot of people who ask how the program helps with application and I usually have to lean very much on individual resources…

                        • add NET Reverse Interlinear for OT and NT

                          The NET Bible is a modern translation. Its many translation notes give a lot of insight into the translation process. Therefore it would be valuable to have the reverse interlinear with that Bible version. As for now we always have to switch Bible if we want to check out a note etc. Also, the NET is great recourses for Bible translators.

                                • Allow users to add hyperlinks

                                  As the number of Logos resources increases, older resources are missing hyperlinks to the newer resources. Use the technology behind notes and clippings to allow users to add their own hyperlinks, with the information stored in a separate hyperlinks file. The links added could be reported to Logos in the same way as typos are, facilitating the updating of the older resources.

                                        This has been a longstanding problem. See forum thread for links to many people who have requested this.

                                        • 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".
