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. 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.

    • LN Preview Items Preference Toggle

      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.

      • Assign panels a resource type for opening resources

        I would like to assign 1 or more resources types to a panel within a layout so that there is control for opening a resource of that type. 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',…

        • Add in-text APA citations for copied text from books

          I was hoping that when I copied and pasted text from a book in Logos 5 into Pages or Word for a paper that I am writing for school that I would get an in-text APA 6th citation i.e. (Lewis, 1953) rather than a footnote with full bibliographic footnote. I was hoping that YES on Citation and NO on Footnote would set this up but it appears not.

          Example of what I am getting:

          According to the Tanakh and the New Testament the goal of God’s Messianic Community (which Christians call the Church) is to praise, thank, confess, obey and…

              • How about including the Thompson Chain Reference.

                I love my Logos and don't know what I ever did without it. I use it everyday. However I confess that I hang on to my Wordsearch simply because it includes the Thompson Chain Reference search capability. I have used the TCR since 1963 and to include it in Logos would be most helpful.

                • New “Hide” & “Archive” features.

                  1. The current “hidden resources” feature should be renamed to “archived resources.” The current nomenclature is misleading: books
                  aren’t “hidden,” they are removed from the system.

                  2. A new “hidden resources” feature should be created which acts like a reverse prioritization. Books that are “hidden” would not show up in the library or search results by default. They could be added to a collection, however. This would be useful for collections such as the Perseus & LDS resources.

                  • Expand Inductive Precept Key Word Symbols for Highlighting

                    Please expand "Inductive/Precept" highlighting palette (or add another one) with Kari Dent's Key Word Symbol additions => https://karikingdent.com/key-word-symbols/

                    Forum thread "Moving Precept Symbols Into A New Palette in Logos 7" => https://community.logos.com/forums/t/134154.aspx has discussion about Kari Dent's PDF files not being readily convertable into styles for Logos and Verbum highlighting use.

                    Forum reply => https://community.logos.com/forums/p/134175/871997.aspx#871997 shows all of Kay Arhtur's Inductive Precept symbols are in the "Inductive/Precept" highlighting palette as of Logos 6.13

                    • Add New English Translation of the Septuagint (NETS)

                      Preferably with a Reverse Interlinear. It was suggested about 18 months ago (http://community.logos.com/forums/t/14951.aspx) & many people have requested it there since. Should be easy to license/import as Accordance has had it for years.

                      • Optimize startup time

                        I have a Core i3 computer with an SSD drive. Even so, Logos always takes between 20 and 30 seconds to start up, and it is not strange that it take 35 or 40 seconds to startup!

                        BTW, these are the time that I get even with the option to "Show Homepage on Startup" turned off (which does slow things down further, but at least it's clear why).

                        I recently discovered that if I simply turn off the option to "Use Internet" in Logos settings, that my startup time dropped down to a mere 9 seconds! That is very acceptable.…

                        • Make "Add a Note to..." a Drop Down Box.

                          Currently when you want to add a note you have to right click on the word/verse and then in the lower right corner you have the option to add a note to the last opened note file. If the note file you want to save it to wasn't the last one you must first manually open it and then it will appear as an option.

                          My suggestion is that in place of only listing the most recently opened note file, you make it a drop down box so I can easily select any note.

                              • add Mellel support for "Copy Bible Verses"

                                (Logos 4 Mac) Mellel is a frequently used editor for long or Hebrew-containing documents on Mac, as Word is weak in these areas. "Copy Bible Verses" and "Paste" generally works for Mellel, but does not, however, properly format tabs, etc.

                                • Built in RSS Reader

                                  Much like Google Reader etc., the Logos RSS Reader would allow subscription to blogs and other RSS feeds that would be automatically downloaded, filed, and indexed within the Logos Library when Logos is opened.

                                  These feeds would then be keyword searchable and citable like all other sources within the library. Allowing students, preachers, teachers, scholars or lay people to include up-to-date ideas within personal study, church work or academic documents.

                                  • build a software tool for bible translatio

                                    I am translating the bible
                                    into an undocumented language... ethnologue code ppq. I think Logos is in a unique position to develop a module or something to help bible translators by actually building into logos a tool to write your own bible translations. Right now, I have to use a tool called paratext. the tool works, but is windows only and would be better if it were more integrated with logos.

                                    i'd love your thoughts and would love even more to see a tool like this born!

                                      • Japanese Version

                                        Libronix had a reverse interlinear of the Japanese bible (see: http://www.bible.or.jp/purchase/newbible/greece.html). It is no longer available through Logos. Japan is the single largest unreached people group in the world with less than 1% of the population professing faith. (Yes, China and India have larger populations, but they are made up of a diverse range of people groups.) It might not be profitable for Logos to focus on this, but it would certainly help those of us who are involved in partnering in missions with our brethren in Japan.

                                        • Customize/Prioritize Right Click Pop-up Menus

                                          Currently both sides of right click pop-up menu has many sections, which are in a fixed order. Please provide settings so can specify section order for each side plus enable/disable sections. Ideal pop-up settings implementation would be like Logos 6 Home Page Sidebar that has check boxes to choose sections plus drag and drop for desired order.
