    • A "Go Box" that will search multiple scriptures at once.

      For example: Romans 12:1, 15:30, 16:17. And the results display in one tab.

      • Re-work the indexing tool to a more rapid response. A librarian does't take every book down and re-shelve them when a new book arrives.

        It seems that when a new version of Logos is put up to update existing version, the indexing takes longer and longer. I understand that the size of the personal library has something to do with the amount of time to index. But it should not take a full day when prior indexing has been done. There seems to be a lot of redundancy built into your indexing process. It is frustrating and takes entirely too long.

          • work out the failure of compatibility with Wordperfect 6 copy and paste

            It seems that copy/paste does not work out of the Scripture in the latest versions of Wordperfect 6. Some of us really perfer WP to Word because of the controls in WP. PLEASE continue to support us! I know we may be considered Luddites, but we are not!

            • In sentence diagramming, allow more control for making lines dotted.

              When using certain pre-determined shapes in sentence diagramming, allowing for individual selection of the lines in the shapes would be great. For example, the rocket shape for diagramming compound parts of a sentence does not allow the conjunction line to be dotted instead of solid, yet most diagramming lessons will require a dotted line. The entire shape can be made dotted, but not just one part of it.

              • Voice search of Bible verses

                With Logos App open on my phone or tablet pc, when I mention "John 3:16", Logos app opens the verse for me in the Bible version that is set to be open, or when I quote a Bible verse with a few key words mentioned, Logos searches it and open all the verses that contains key words. In this case, the action word for Logos App is "the Bible says" or "In the Bible." It will be a great help to pastors and Bible teacher who want to deliver a correct quotation of Bible verses.

                    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.

                      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.

                              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.

                                      • In Logos 6 prayer list.

                                        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.
