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. 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.

    • 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.…

        • Allow Grouping of personal books into folders/sub-folders like Favorites

          Organizing Personal Books in the Personal Book Builder into folders/sub-folders like Favorites would greatly facilitate finding/viewing one's personal book library. Once you have a significant number of personal books, it can be a challenge to see what's there.

          • 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.

            • footnote like libronix - example

              How Libronix works with footnotes and how Logos 5 does not work

              Our students would appreciate it so much if Logos 5 could have this feature present in Libronix

              This is how the Libronix Digital Library works with collected items in the clip board

              I can collect as many quotes as the Word clipboard permits and when I go to the document(s) where I want to use them they foot note very beautifully .

              Introduction: Creation and Chaos 1:1–2

              The unit begins with a concern central throughout Genesis 1–11, the creating God and chaos. We commonly translate these two verses…

                The addition of the audio Greek NT has been great. Now we need the Hebrew OT!

                • Export Highlighted Text

                  I tend to read with a highlighter in hand and would like to mimic this in Logos. It would be great to be able to just easily highlight as I read along; and then export my highlighted sentences or paragraphs into the notes (with cites) so they could be printed, exported or searched. This would be a great aide for researchers.

                  • Add Bible study templates - premade as in L3 beta and user created

                    These need to be shareable between users and printable. Tables and graphic organizers need to be supported at least as cut & paste. There should not be a limit on the number of pages. Printing should allow the option of blank forms or form with sample answers.

                    • 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!

                      • Manual Save/import/export of Notes/Collections/Layouts/Filters/Searches .

                        Opps... I didn't want to delete that!! Sound familiar? Allow users to manually save, import & export items such as collections, notes, filters, layouts, search results, etc. This will permit recovery from accidental deletion/edits. It also allows users to select a subset of items to have available at a given time, without losing the others.

                        • Allow library resources to be stored on/accessed from external storage (such as from an SD card)

                          I would like to download all of my resources to an external microSD card so that they are available when I can't connect to the Internet and don't consume the bulk of my internal storage (such as on my Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 that has 16 GB of internal storage and a 64 GB microSD card.

                          Supporting an external card could be a great experience for end users. That way, I could have one card that I could use in my Samsung Tab, my desktop system, or any other device Logos supports. Being connected to the Internet can be nice,…

                          • 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

                                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

                                • Highlight/marking/note list for each resource

                                  It would be very nice to be able to see a list in each resource of all my highlights/markings/notes within that resource and showing part of the marked text. That way I can easily get to important ideas that I've marked and jump back and forth among them, like with the "bookmarks" tab in pdf readers. Each time I add a marking or note in a pdf document, the addition is included in the "bookmarks" tab with part of the text.

                                  Right now exists the possibility to jump between highlights, but without seeing a list of the the highlighted texts.…

                                    • Complete My Resource/Commentary Set

                                      Logos software can keep track of the resources currently owned and create a list to recommend updates or additional resources to complete a set (e.g. the NAC has had a few additions in the past few months, so keeping a tab on those resources to remind me to purchase in order to complete my commentary set). I'm OCD and like full sets, but have a hard time keeping up with which commentary sets have new resources.

                                      • Need "Date Added to library" for the library list

                                        I would like the library list (the list that shows up when you click the blue book at the top left of Libronix) to contain a "date purchased" or "date added" so that you can more easily find new books that are being automatically downloaded. I like community bids and I purchase a lot of books through there, but I don't want to have to keep track and figure out what's been downloaded, what hasn't. Logos automatically downloads new books, but short of going through my e-mails to see what community bids have been completed, there seems to be no…

                                          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…
