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".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  1. 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…

  2. 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.

  3. Add the ability to scroll in the "Fuzzy Bible Search" drop down!

    There is no way to scroll down the Fuzzy Bible Search results which is incredibly problematic if you want to see beyond 3 to 5 results. The normal verse search results have this but not the Fuzzy results. Should be a simple and essentially beneficial improvement. Thank you!

  4. Support Diacritic-agnostic Searching for Notes

    * Cross-posting from the forums per the Help Desk's suggestion: https://community.logos.com/forums/p/177726/1027489.aspx#1027489 *

    In v.8, searching notes for Greek, Hebrew, or Aramaic text depends on exactly representing diacritics. So, for instance, if I have a note titled קִנְיָן, and I search for קנין (no vowel points), I don't get a hit for that note.

    Similarly, if I have a note titled ἑξῆς, and I search for εξης, the note also isn't listed as a result. More frustratingly, if the note uses precombined characters as in ἑξῆς (epsilon + precombined rough breathing, eta + precombined circumflex), even if I search for the…

  5. Personal BIBLE Book - tag method to reference quotes from other bible verses or OT.

    When creating a personal book type: BIBLE, I would like a way to tag a verse that references or quotes another verse (same bible).

    Matt 2:15 - "Out of Egypt I called my Son." [reference to Hosea 11:1]

    For example in the NIV, Matt 2:15 has a reference to Hosea 11:1 for the quote "out of Egypt I called my Son."

    Superscript Tags suggestion (matching installed bible formats):
    "a", "b", "c", "d", - Starting with "a" again with new book

  6. Bring back LOGOS 7 "Fragments" option in LOGOS 8 initial PAGE

    LOGOS Software 7 (MAC) had "Fragments" which was very useful in the initial Page. I did not find that option in LOGOS 8. Please add.

  7. Provide audio bibles for other major bible translations

    The ability to listen to the bible in Logos via the ESV version is much appreciated.

    I would value the ability to listen in the app to other major translations and paraphrases.

    My personal top two choices would be the NIV (Audio being available in both the American English and Anglicised versions) and the Message.

    I recognise that the licencing / implementation costs of this may necessity making each additional translation a paid for resource.

  8. Implement red letter text in NIV (Anglicised edition, 2011)

    The view settings for the NIV 2011 American English version allow for Jesus’ words to be shown in red. Whilst the same toggle exists on the Anglicised version the words of Jesus don’t show in red.

    Please could this feature be implemented so there is parity in this respect between the American and British versions of the NIV on Logos?

  10. Restore the Stars

    I think it would be greatly helpful to restore the stars in the section of commentaries and resources of my Commentaries list. I can no longer mark specific books that are helpful that I want to refer to as I study... they just remain in the list without distinction from the rest of the books. It is a small tool that saves lots of time because it prevents me from reopening resources that I am not actively wanting to use.

  13. work on developing a full featured version of Logos for Chromebooks.

    A full functioning version for Chromebook may be a win-win situation for the consumer and Faithlife. For those who have Chromebook, they would be able to use the app in its fullness. This could possibly open doors for a new target group in Chromebook users that may not be looking at Logos due to its limited features on the web/mobile app versions.

  15. Allow more media formats

    I can currently choose from 16:9 and 4:3
    Now our church's projector is actually 16:10, resulting in black bars top and bottom or content being cut off on the left and right.

    Can it be made possible to enter a format completetly freely? MIcrosoft PowerPoint even permits (international) paper sizes (A4, letter, etc.) How about adding at least those and 16:10 to the dropdown list?

  16. Make mobile features available on Full Software or Logos Web App.

    Since there is no mobile version of Logos Bible Software available to Windows devices such as the Surface Pro, I suggest that Faithlife make mobile features such as "Presentations," available on the full software version or the web app.

  18. intertextuality - the Old Testament use of the Old Testament

    I very much appreciate Logos' work on resources relating to the NT use of the OT.

    In the same vein, I would be very grateful if resources could be added which specifically addressed the OT's allusions/echoes of previous material within itself (i.e. the myriad echoes & allusions to The Exodus).

  19. Allow speaker highlighting/formatting inside Bible verses in Sermons.

    Inside sermon editor document type. Allow the speaker Text Size; Text color and Text size - Plus Bold & Underline function inside embedded Bible verse that appear when the Bible reference is typed. This is to allow speaker emphasis to be placed inside the text.

  20. Personal Books On Mobile (Please Reconsider!!!)

    With the changes in the desktop note system all formatting is removed from my personal documents when copying them into notes in L8. that is how I would work around PBs not being available for mobile. Now that that is gone I would like to please request that you consider making personal books available for mobile. Please do not decline without an answer.
