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".

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. Have a marker when a verse has been added to a clipping

    When a verse is added to a clipping there is no way of knowing just by looking through the text that it has been added. This can be very frustrating if you think you have missed something and then have to trawl through all the clippings to find out if it was added in the first place

    • Add the ability to create mind maps in Logos 4

      Add the ability to create (and share) mind maps in Logos. This would include the ability to link to Logos resources and include the ability to print them out. This would be a great help in sermon prep for many of us that use mind maps software and are stuck cutting and pasting between programs

      • Add Apple Pencil Integration

        It would be nice to seemlessly annotate resources using the Apple Pencil (or other styluses) as many other iPad apps have allowed for.

        • Tabletalk (Ligonier ministries)

            • 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.

              • Add Dewey Classification sort field to Library

                L4 needs a sort field added to the library--one with Dewey Decimal System numbers. Since Logos provides a real library, you should also provide a way to organize it like a real one.

                • Earn Money for Reporting Typos

                  I was very disappointed with the last book that I purchased. It was one of those old classic commentaries that is worth it's weight in gold but unfortunately there were an abundance of typos in it. The was spelled "teh" or "hte" constantly as well as many other obvious mistakes. As I read the book I thought it would be great if I got $.10 - 0.25 for every mistake I found. If all logos users were encouraged to report typos in this way all of logos books would be greatly improved at a very low cost to Logos.

                  • Sorting Library in Cover View by all fields and by relative order

                    It is not currently possible to sort the library (whilst in Cover View) by more than four basic options (recent, most used, title and author). Please could you add all of the additional fields that it's possible to sort by in detail view eg. sort by type or tags etc.

                    In addition, it would be useful to be able to drag the books around and sort by relative order on their own "shelves" (and have this be remembered) such that the library would work by more visual cues in the manner of a physical book case.

                    • Journaling Addin

                      This is a feature that would be infinitely helpful for tracking personal progress toward reading completion goals, etc. If you're like me there are tons of books you have access to in Logos but it's difficult staying focused on one book or author. I will start reading one thing, get distracted and veer off in some other direction on some other topic in some other book, before I know it, I'll be sitting there a few days later back at the book I started with days beforehand thinking "this is that book I started reading days ago and until just…

                      • An improved scrollbar

                        the current scrollbar cannot be used practically in a long book. So it should be improved.
                        Suggestion:

                        1) multiple scrollbar, each of them is having different range.

                        2) to scroll through the current chapter, but then when it is at the bottom of the chapter, you click the "down arrow" or press the "page down", then it jumps to the next chapter (and of course the scrollbar will go to the beginning of that chapter instead). To press once page down is much more convenient than the current method: to press down/page down every time I want to move to…

                        • Allow custom blogs and RSS feeds on the home page

                          It would be very useful if the Home Page is able to accommodate custom content through various internet entities like blogs other than the Faithlife/Logos blogs as well as RSS feeds and the like.
                          Content can be limited to text only to eliminate security concerns.
                          Link to community discussion: https://community.logos.com/forums/t/93566.aspx

                          The discussion also suggests a feature that requires smart code to make it happen: automatically recognize citation styles and allow links to resources already in user's library or just for bibliography reasons.

                            • 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).

                                • Fix the docking of floating windows

                                  Here's the problem: When you float a window - and then you would like to dock it again, Logos 4 doesn't seem to remember where it came from so it docks it wherever it wants to.

                                  The way it works now is unpredictable because the floating windows go wherever they want when you dock them.

                                  Make the floating window dock back exactly where it came from.

                                    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.

For example, one panel might be assigned as 'Dictionaries', another 'Notes' another 'Commentaries' , or 'Resources', 'Bibles'. When a new resource is opened from the PG, library or button bar, it should open in the panel assigned to that type of resource, or default to whatever scheme is currently used by Logos (I have no idea what that is since it follows no apparent logic - it is not 'like with like',…
