  1. Set Default Notebook

    In Logos 8, we must manually select the notebook and note style. In 7 we were able to right click and select a notebook from there. This feature or the ability to set a default notebook and style would be great.

  2. Make Logos 8 practical.

    Logos 7 was aesthetically superior to Logos 8, and the homepage was exponentially more practical and functional. The Dashboard cards in Logos 8 are worthless and only require further clicking and loading of documents, whereas in Logos 7 we could see information (e.g., all prayers, daily readings, etc.) in one place, often without scrolling. Currently, the Dashboard cards are immovable, non-sizable, non-customizable, and provide little to no information (e.g., prayer lists show the first few points and no longer have the hover pop-up, and daily readings are only a heading the the day—I can see that on my calendar, I…

  3. Spell checker off in workflow. It causes red lines in an other language

    In the workflow red lines because of another language. This makes it less workable.

  5. Logos 8 Notes: Add "Select All" or fix Shift+Click bug

    When I am in Logos 8, Notes, Filters and have faceted a group of Notes (Highlights) that I would like to move to a different Notes File, I am unable to select that group of notes because I have thousands, and when I scroll down the list to be able to get to the end and do a Shift Click, Logos erases my original focus in that list. This is a bug.
    If there was a "Select All" on the list, then I could grab them and move them to the new Notes file.
    My issue is that I have…

  6. Include Workflow results in a passage search

    I created my first Basic Bible Study workflow the other day, and I couldn't find traces of the workflow in any documents other than workflow itself. I would like to suggest that either 1) An anchor tag be placed in the passage showing a workflow related to that passage, and/or 2) Including the workflow with other results in a Basic Passage Search, under YOUR DOCUMENTS.

  7. Footnote options in Sermon Editor

    When pasting into Sermon Editor the citation is posted immediately underneath the pasted item. I value the automatic citation, but its size and placement are not helpful and very distracting. It would be so helpful if the citation could be a normal footnote at the bottom of the page. It would be even more helpful if there was an option to have the footnote place at the end of the sermon. Thanks so much!

  8. Create a simple attendance check block in your Proclaim bulletin in addition to the contact card

    Attendance is a difficult task. We can use a third party app, but if people are already logging into the bulletin then they could simply click a box to say that they are present for worship. It would actually be best to prompt them when they log in rather than hiding it in the contact page. The checkbox would need to be linked to the administrator so she/he could work with the data week after week.

  9. List View of Resources in Custom Layouts

    For Each Layout, have available an 'alpha list view' of every resource associated with respective Layout. This expedites identifying all resources within a layout without hovering the mouse over each tap one by one. My layouts have at least 35 resources each divided over 4 panels.

  10. Include an optional clock in iOS app

    Kindle is one of the only reading apps out there that gives users an option to have a clock in the top corner of the page while they are reading. It would be nice to have this same option in the Logos app for iOS.

  11. Link passages noted in different formats

    Say I type a note Luke 1:1. Logos recognizes it as a passage from Scripture and creates a link to it.
    The same works if I type Luke 1:1-2.

    At times though I note f.e. Luke 1:5 & 7 (leaving one or more verses out) or maybe even books, f.e. Luke 1 & 5.
    Right now, Logos only recognizes the first part and does not link to verse 7, only verse 5.
    Can this become a feature?

  12. Please make the sync icons always visible on the tab

    To have sync icons that disappear when the tabs are forced smaller is not such a good idea. It would be better from a usage point of view to keep them visible and perhaps if possible make them a roll over to show the x to close tab, so there is a saving of space. Additionally is it possible that a valid synchronization between A and other A's can be shown with a full color icon, and when there is not sync to show it dimmed.

  13. Upgrades for the Atlas tool

    In the Atlas took, it would be nice to:

    1. Type in a location, hit "enter" and have that single location show up with an auto-zoom. The current search interface is a bit clunky.

    2. Have the capability to click on a map and manually mark a point of interest, or perhaps put a dot or an "x" to indicate a geographical location(s). This would be really helpful in public presentations. Sometimes it's hard to point out specific locations in the Atlas.

    Thank you for your consideration!

  14. Add BIOY from Alpha/ Nicky Gumbel/ HTB to your Bible Reading Plans

    Bible in One Year reading plan is pretty popular in UK. It would be great to see it easily accessible on LOGOS.

  15. Source/Merge Pasting

    Provide option to pasted copied material with either the source formatting or to merge to match the formatting in the pasted location. This is for between notes or Logos resources but also could include from material outside Logos (websites, Word, PowerPoint, etc.).

  16. Make layouts available as tabs at the top of the workspace.

    One thing I would find helpful would be to have the different layouts available as tabs at the top of the workspace. This would be similar to most web browsers, where one can surf different website by clicking on the tabs at the top of the browser. The idea is to change layouts in the same way, by clicking on the tab.

    For instance, In my work, I have a lexicon layout and a study layout. When I need to research a word, I could simply click on the Lexicon tab and pull it up, then go back to my…

  19. Library Viewable and Printable Lists

    When upgrading, the website allows viewing of all resources in a package, shows what we own, and what will be new to us. The really nice thing about it is that it categorizes everything. For instance, it lists all Bibles together, all Commentaries together (and each book in a commentary series is listed under that commentary), etc.

    Unfortunately, that list only compares resources of what's in that base package, rather than showing all of our additional resources we've purchased, such as additional commentaries.

    It would be very helpful to have (either on the website, or in the software) a list…

  20. Please consider including Audio when reading the bible.

    Include audio as Biblegateway has. I have a slight case of dyslexia and it helps to listen as I read any version. I happen to use NIV.
