Logos Bible Software 8

  1. I have an Idea that I'd pay money for (I am paying money for).
    I would love Logos to have a cataloging element to it for our real books. Scan a barcode and then enter into a cataloging system so I can see what books I have (real or virtually or both).
    It would also be super cool If I could link that library with all of the other pastors at my church and maybe in the city along with our Church's library and see if any pastors in my church have a book I'm looking for.

    Something comparable to…

  2. Here is a short video showing the suggestion for the ability to add folders to the layout area. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uyKzmurJzNU

  3. you guys have the arrow emphasis mark but it doesn't lead to another word. I'm not sure how you could build the software, but I imagine there are creative options. it could be that you highlight the text, click highlights, select "connect text" option, then when you click on another word it creates an arrow leading from the highlighted portion to the clicked portion.

  4. Add more color options for the underlines (I only have colors red, green, and blue). It would be great to have as many as the highlight options.

  5. Logos has some great tools in their notes that make study and preparation better. However, the Outlining is buggy and lacking. First, making a "Harvard Outline Style" would create hierarchy that so many are used to - I. A. 1. a. etc.

    Also, when copying a quote from a resource, it would be great if a "bottom section" was automatically generated as a citation section for all the resources instead of pasting it right below and messing up flow of the note.

  7. One of my Wordsearch desktops I used had multiple Bible translations opened in parallel columns. The verses were aligned so verse 1 in each column aligned with verse 1 in all the other columns and continued throughout, and whichever verse I was reading was highlighted, which helped keep my place. I have been able to mostly recreate this with a layout in Logos, but the verses do not align the same way, even with linking, and there is also no highlight of the verse I am on. Mostly cosmetic, but it does make it easier to read and track where…

  8. It would be great if we could arrange the clippings by resource, date added, and Biblical narrative. For example, I have a bunch of clippings on Hosea, and it would be amazing, if, by the titles of the notes, they could be rearranged in the order of the chapters of Hosea.

  9. I am requesting to add a feature to allow for minimizing menu and search bar when in layout mode with multiple windows open at same time.

  11. Sometimes it is nice to know which anchor is the primary reference for notes with multiple anchors. If there was a way to reorder them, this would be helpful.

  12. On the desktop windows logos app a user cannot interact with the popup note that happens when hovering over the note icon like you can in the mobiel version of logos.

    In the desktop app you have to click on the note icon to jump to what ever reference might be located in that note. This causes another pane to be created on the pc app taking up unnecessary realestate on laptops. I would be more effective use of monitor realistate if one could interact with the note that pops up when hovering over the note icon and click on…

  13. Please add a check box to each item in a search result list, and allow all check items to be open simultaneously in a new window, instead of opening each item individually and having to go back to the result list for the next item.

  14. I would like to suggest that you create a feature within notes as it relates to how a note is anchored to a resource be it Bible or other resource.

    Currently placing the note icon anywhere other then just before a verse number in the Bible is not very flexible.

    While preparing a study I wanted to have a chain reference note just before a verse number but within the verse itself just before one of the words within that verse I wanted to have a reference to another book like the Bible dictionary in order to make it very…

  15. My idea would be that you would bring that feature back into existence. I know it can be done because I could do it 15-20 years ago. It was so nice and convenient. Thank you for your time and consideration!!! God Bless!!!

  16. In order to use Logos for sophisticated linguistic work we need tools that help us compare texts on several levels:

    First: the Lemmata-level. Shows and compares words, roots etc.
    Second: the sentence-level. Shows similar grammatical structures, similar phrases or parts of phrases
    Third: the dataset-level: Enhancing the functionality of the datasets by comparing everything put in one text with the text with which one wants to compare it.

    For example: Putting in Isa 1:1-7 and comparing it with Isa 40:1-11. Comparable to a sophisticated anti-plagiarism-software we should now be able to see differences and similarities in meaning, in structure, in…

  17. I do my exegesis in Microsoft Word as well as my sermon writing, simply because it is a better Word processing tool than Logos Notes and also a lot faster. I will (probably) never use Logos Notes for my sermons. So it would be great if You could open Microsoft Word within Logos.
    This would give the opertunity to open one window (Logos) instead of multiple windows (Word next to my commentaries in a floating window, but also the exegetical guide, and so on) and that gives a better working flow.

  19. My name is Allan Loder. I have created a resource that I feel would be beneficial for pastors, teachers and students of the New Testament.

    During my PhD studies at Wycliffe College, University of Toronto, I did a course on Epigraphy (as it relates to the vocabulary of the NT). Also, one of my areas of study was NT textual criticism, so I became quite familiar with the papyri and inscriptions. As a student, and as a pastor, I know first-hand the need for good resources.

    Back in 2012, I felt I needed a way to keep up with my…

  20. Back in Logos 7 for Mac, I was able to utilize the vowel markings built into the Mac keyboard (i.e., I was able to press and hold a vowel key, and wait for the vowel marking options to appear above the letter, and then select the one I wanted). With Logos 8 (and now 9), however, that feature went away. I take notes from Logos and copy them into Evernote. So when I do (and since Evernote supports that Mac keyboard feature), I have to go back and change the vowel markings I was forced to use in Logos and…
