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".

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. Links to scripture would be great if they opened in the copy Bible tool when clicked.

    Links to scripture would be great if they opened in the copy Bible tool when clicked. Treasury of scripture knowledge would be great like this bc it is almost always used to copy.

    • Intuitive interface, sort options for passage exegetical guides, conform to existing norms with mouse clicks

      I'd like to sort All Commentaries by date of first edition so I can peruse commentary on TR text which doesn't exist in later commentaries. I'd like to sort commentary alphabetically so I can find the ones I prefer easily

      • Dynamic library search tool

        Why not to incapsulate a library search tool in the library panel? When I need a specific commentary on John, for example, I must enter something like "type:commentary john" or "type:commentary subject:john". As for the syntax search, why dont allow to save these searches for repetitive use?

        • Alphabetizing bible, commentaries, and resources for easier location.

          I would like to see an alphabetizing of the resources for easier location. Presently you list commentaries, however to find e.g. Malachi may be at the end of the listing for that specific commentary. Having the commentaries list them in order as if you had the hard copies in your library would be very useful in saving time searching for the one you want. This is the same issue when looking for different bibles. They are randomly ordered which means one has to go on a treasure hunt to find the bible desired. It is great that we have these…

          • Add Pop-up Box to Describe all Updates\Changes\Added Resources, Etc

            Add Pop-up Box to Describe all Updates\Changes\Added Resources, Etc when Logos Re-Starts or Downloads. Whenever Logos says it is downloading, and then asks me to restart it.... I get excited knowing that Logos has either upgraded or I have a pre-pub item that has been completed and is downloading. But I never know exactly what it is and would really love to know if it is a new resource so that I can go in and add it to a specific collection if necessary.

            • The ability to choose to copy regular and/or miscellaneous Logos footnotes

              When copying a non-Bible text from Logos, and pasting it into a Word document, I would like to be offered the option to choose to copy only the regular (numbered) footnotes, and leaving out the misc abbreviation footnotes that Logos creates based on words that are linked in the document. Thank you.

              • I suggest you publish "The New Testament in Modern English" by J.B. Phillips.

                I suggest you publish "The New Testament in Modern English" by J.B. Phillips. He was a British pastor who gradually translated the entire NT into modern English from Greek to encourage his congregation under siege from German bombs during WWII. The translation is refreshing, inspiring and insightful. I'd love to see it as part of the Logos Library.

                • allow the update resources command to work even if the internet is disabled.

                  I have satellite internet that is often very slow. Logos runs (specifically, starts and closes) significantly faster when I have the internet option disabled.

                  If I type the command to update resources, and the internet option is disabled, then it won't update. I have to enable and restart Logos, then update, then disable the option and restart.

                  It would be nice if when you manually type in the command it would still update, whether or not the internet option is disabled.

                  • Create interactive biblical base maps... Thanks, Bill Hoganson

                    Create interactive base maps that will allow the user flexibility to build biblical study maps in context to the passage being taught. These base maps may include: plain with only rivers and bodies of water, topo-graphical, and modern boundaries). Base maps would include at least three choices: (1) Israel only (Mediterranean, Jordan, Egypt), (2) Israel and general region (all ancient contiguous nations), and (3) the entire Mediterranean region as far north as the northern Russia, as far south as Yemen/Ethiopia/Oman/ Arabian Sea, as far east as Pakistan/India and as far west as the Atlantic. Logos would provide a list of…

                    • Add an NRSV Study Bible

                      There are at least three excellent Study Bibles for the NRSV: Harper-Collins, New Interpreters' and Oxford Annotated. These would be fine additions to the library, especially in the Angican and Lutheran collections.

                        You must move the cursor a little over each prayer before you can see the prayer. In Logos 5 all you had to do was to hover to see it. Can this be added?

                        • Use a real voice for "Explain the screen" instead of a computer voice.

                          The text of the "Explain the Screen" is short and known. The computer voice mispronounces the homonym "content" twice as "I am content" instead of "I look for appropriate content." It seems that this part of the Help System could be graduated out of the computer voice into a real human voice.

                                For the ESV audio bible, I have to enlarge the window to access the audio controls. The huge display of the graphic is entirely unnecessary. The functionality is key, so place the controls near the top and then allow the graphic to enlarge or reduce according to the size of the window. Better yet, allow for a floating mini player for audio.

                                  Sometimes I want to study the connection between 2 or more words, and I can type both in the search with unsatisfying results, and then find out later that the answer I was looking for was there, but the words were simply a few verses or chapters apart. I'm asking for the ability to search nearby texts, with a pulldown or something that allows you to choose HOW near: 1 verse, 2 verses, 100 verses, 5 chapters, etc...I think this would be a powerful Bible study tool! Thank you!

                                  • Expand the compatability between factbook and library resources such as Pillar Commentary

                                    I was told that there are only some resources that are compatible with factbook searches. I found this when opening factbook to look at historical context of Matthew and discovered that my preferred commentaries (Pillar, Hendrickson's NTC, Spence) do not appear under headings like "authorship', 'background', 'date', etc. Please expand the compatibility to make factbook more useful.

                                      It would be very helpful when using a mobile devise and I want to make a personal cross references to that scripture in a note that, that the scripture reference automatically become a hot link to that scripture I want to cross reference.

                                      Thanks,
                                      Charles Cornett

                                      • make the home screen scroll with a touch screen on the PC... the other screens seem to work

                                        I just would like to be able to touch the home screen and scroll down or up with a finger movement... it works on the other screens.. why not the home screen? Thnaks... really am enjoying the program.

                                        • Allow upgrades on Base Packages

                                          My suggestion: "Allow upgrades on Base Packages"! For example, according to Logos current rule, if I buy a base package with NA28 or UBS4, I cannot upgrade to NA28 with apparatus or UBS4 with apparatus. I have to buy those Bibles with apparatus, pay the full price and keep both. It doesn't make sense I have NA28 + NA28 with apparatus in my library, they are exactly the same, except the apparatus. So, we should be allowed to pay the difference and keep just one, in this example, just the NA28 with apparatus.
