  1. Ability to customize tabs

    In Logos 8 the tab size increased so I need to scroll through 15 resources to find the tab I want. It would be nice to be able to customize the size and content allowed on a sources tab

  2. Prompt Before Indexing Begins

    As others have noted, indexing monopolizes HDD and CPU resources and makes it virtually impossible to use the computer (particularly with large libraries). Two simple options would help: 1) prompt user before indexing begins and 2) allow indexing to be scheduled for a more convenient time. Apple routinely does this for all its updates.

  3. Allow the merging of separate saved layouts. This would allow me to "import" the "Bible and Commentary" QuickStart layout into my own layout

    I need the "Commentary" window from the "Bible and Commentary" Quickstart layout so that a single window can open any book in a commentary series. This feature isn't available any other way.
    Eg. a "Commentary" window to open John Goldingay's "Old Testament for Everyone." Then no matter what book of the Old Testament I want to go to, I just add the biblical reference into the "active reference" window, and I'm taken to that book.

  4. Edit existing workflows rather than starting with a blank

    Expository Sermon Prep workflow is great but I'd like to customize it instead fo creating a whole new workflow and linking in all the well-established tools in the pre-made workflow

  5. Reinstate the ability to Copy verses directly from Search Results

    Allow the ability to Copy/Paste from search results. The only current option is to "Export" the list of verses then paste the entire list into Word and re-format (it pastes as a table; it also pastes both columns if using Grid view, not just a single version or language). Would love to be able to select a portion of a list or a single verse. Similar request to this thread (https://logos.uservoice.com/forums/42823-logos-bible-software-8/suggestions/1189531-export-bible-search-results-via-copy-bible-verses) but would love to be able to just highlight and copy without having to use the Copy Bible Verses tool. This may have been active in version…

  6. Logos 8 prayer list does not allow me to mark my prayer requests as prayed for on my phone like Logos 7

    In Logos 7, the prayer list feature was great. I could check off all of my requests right from the main page or my phone. Now, in Logos 8, I have to go into the prayer list section to do so and can't mark anything as prayed for on my phone.

  8. Specify collections in Workflow!!

    I would like to specify collections in my sermon prep workflows. For example at one point of my prep I would like to review my background commentary collection; at another point in my preparation I want to review my 1-volume commentaries; at another point I review technical commentaries; etc.

    A BONUS would be if there were a check box where I could click off each commentary in the collection when it is read, so that if I return to that step in a workflow I can quickly pickup where I left off.

  9. Link dashboard layout cards to latest save

    The way the current dashboard is set up (v. 8.3 SR-1), I can create cards linking to my custom layouts. However, changing and updating the layouts do not change the cards because they are linked to *snapshots* not the layouts themselves.

    Support said that this was the intended design and that I would have to delete and recreate the card each time I wanted it updated. If that's the case, I might as well just choose the layout from the toolbar menu. What is the point in having the cards on the dashboard if they could be outdated the very…

  10. text box and highlighting changes for Canvas

    1. Text box—it doesn’t work as a box in Microsoft Word. As a result, you are constantly having to resize it as the text gets longer. So each time you use a text box, you need to select "word wrap." This assumes there is a time when you would want the text flowing outside of the box, but that's not realistic. Nobody would want that option, so it should be default that text never flows outside of the box.


    2. Highlighting—any time you add something like a highlight pen, it opens it up on the lower left side of pages.…

  11. On-Off Button For Link Sets

    Please consider making it possible to click on the colored Link Set icon (A, B, C, D, E, F) on the surface area of each panel tab, in order to turn the link on and off quickly without having to open the panel menu.
    This would be a tremendous time saver, as those resources that scroll slowly when the link is turned on could then have their link turned off quickly to read a long passage, and then immediately have their link turned back on with a quick click.

  13. Change font (bold, color, background color) on a word level in a Sentence Diagram Document

    It would be very useful to be able to change font settings (bold, color, background color) on a word level in a Sentence Diagram Document using SBLGNT.

  14. I don’t like the new tab design in Logos 8.

    I don’t like the new tab design. I find that too much space is lost in the design. The Link Set icon is invading. Why should the Link Set indicator so prominent? I use a lot of tab, I preferred before when more information was available in the tabs: Before, I was able to see the title of the tab but now only the document icon which says very little. So please redesign tabs in order to improve space use.

  15. Papelera de Reciclaje para Herramienta Favoritos

    Es una magnífica forma de organizar documentos la Herramienta Favoritos, ya que uno puede crear carpetas y añadir accesos directos a dichas carpetas, muy al estilo de mac y windows. Y esto permite mantener una muy buena organización de documentos.

    La sugerencia es permitir una papelera de reciclaje para en caso de que accidentalmente uno borre alguna carpeta, ya que después de 5 años de usar Favoritos, hoy me sucedió y después de comunicarme al soporte me indicaron no hay forma de recuperar. Así que mi sugerencia es al mismo estilo de Mac, Windows e incluso Linux contar con una…

  18. Allow to export and print WORKFLOW

    Right now, after finishing my own workflow, and open it on left window, and sermon editor on the right window. It's fine if it is showing only my works from Workflow(which is text only as a result of export).
    Otherwise, I'd like to see my printed copy for Sermon editing process.
    Does it make a sense?

  19. Allow users to use the same title for different document types.

    It would be helpful to use the same title for different document types.

  20. allow visual filter settings be saved to layouts, allowing select visual filters to match what I want for a layout.

    We need to be allowed to save current visual filters selected to match certain layouts. For example ... If I want to read my bible with nothing but the text and save those filter setting to my bible reading layout and then if I want to see notes and highlights visual filters on my bible study layout, I shouldn't have to change those visual filter settings when I select my different layouts. When you save a layout, all settings and views in that layout should be saved as preferences to that layout. Would save a lot of time. Thank you…
