Logos Bible Software 8

An experiment in user-ranking of feature priorities for Logos 8.

Visit our other UserVoice sites for mobile app feedback, www.logos.com feedback, Book Suggestions, and Community Pricing feedback.

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".
(thinking…)

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.

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

  1. Bring back the ability to open multiple prioritized resources when double-clicking a word

    Logos 3 had the ability to choose how many windows (resources) to open when executing a keylink (double-clicking a word, for example). Logos 4 only opens a single resource when double-clicking a word. The option to open multiple prioritized resources would be very useful in study.

  2. Journaling Addin

    This is a feature that would be infinitely helpful for tracking personal progress toward reading completion goals, etc. If you're like me there are tons of books you have access to in Logos but it's difficult staying focused on one book or author. I will start reading one thing, get distracted and veer off in some other direction on some other topic in some other book, before I know it, I'll be sitting there a few days later back at the book I started with days beforehand thinking "this is that book I started reading days ago and until just…

  3. Improve "Show Collections" section of Cited By tool

    Drag to change order is not very helpful when your list of collections and tags has gotten huge and unwieldy. Please add a Sort by (alphabetical, most recently used) option.

    Also it is a pain in the neck to turn off all the check boxes only to turn on just one or a few, or vice versa. Please add Check All and Clear All options.

  4. Enhance passage lists

    Add expand-contract capabilities to passage list titles; allow specification of text version in the list; allow formatted CBV function using the passage list. Do this in conjunction with 2 other requests: an add verses from clipboard function and inclusion of passage lists in "My Content" search results.

  5. Include (Verse)/Passage Lists in searches building My Content

    Passages lists should be included in My Content. One could then use them to link Logos and non-Logos resources. I'm thinking especially of non-Logos resources that are linked in the Favorites section.

  6. Make a data type of hymn title so that one can search for references to hymns.

    Some references to hymns are embedded in resources other than hymnals. Make it easy to search for hymns by title.

  7. "Reimagine" Maps - Have Non-Static Maps

    I would like to see some renovations to the maps feature.

    1. Instead of a bunch of different maps, have just one basic map (whole Biblical world) background with the ability to turn overlay information off or on (like Google Earth). That way you can always have the same map up, and even compare different overlays by having them on at the same time (travels of Paul vs. travels of Peter).

    2. Have the map legend stay independent from the zoom level so you can refer to it even when you're zoomed all the way in.

    3. Independent cropping (for…

  8. Add an "UNDO" command that can be dragged to the Shortcut Bar

    I know we have the Ctrl+Z function for undoing something we didn't intend to do - (like deleting a note or a custom Guide) - both of which I have done.
    But Ctrl+Z is sort of a "hidden command". Yes, you can discover it if you search the forums, but I think it should be more obvious.
    So, I would like to suggest that Logos add an "UNDO" command - (to be typed in the command box) - which can also be dragged to the shortcut bar.
    That way, when you need to "undo" some bone head mistake you've just…

  10. Enhance User File Management So They Are Truly Backed Up

    One of the spin off benefits from the Synchronise feature of Logos 4 is that we now have the current version of our personal data secured on a server in the cloud. I appreciate that this has raised a set of issues about whether or not a user would want this and also what type of data can now be stored for legal reasons but for many users this could become a real benefit.

    As things stand the existing implementation has limited benefits as a backup system because there is a single restore option which is restore all to last…

  11. Tie Main Window and All Floating Panels Together

    When the Main Window becomes active, all floating panels additionally come "to the top" and become active.

  12. Translation Interlinear

    My vision is to have a "translation interlinear" under the Text Comparison option in the tools menu. You would pick a base translation and then have a drop down list of the available interlinear translations, much like the current "display" option in the 4.0c beta interlinears. This would put that translation directly under the base text in a different color (so you could easily follow your base text and find the way the other translation translates it).

  13. Manual Save/import/export of Notes/Collections/Layouts/Filters/Searches .

    Opps... I didn't want to delete that!! Sound familiar? Allow users to manually save, import & export items such as collections, notes, filters, layouts, search results, etc. This will permit recovery from accidental deletion/edits. It also allows users to select a subset of items to have available at a given time, without losing the others.

  14. add illustrations.logos.com and like sermons.logos.com allow this to show up in the search results.

    Finding illustrations can be a challenge, and this would allow us to search user-submitted ideas.

  15. Add rating star system to Collections in the Passage Guide

    In essentially all search output, one should be able to hide/display entries or rank entries so that one can focus on the important entries and remember that you've looked at an entry and found it not to be helpful.

  17. Prayer List Show Details

    Can we add an option to display all the notes for a prayer request as it used to be possible in Logos 3 (see http://community.logos.com/forums/t/15015.aspx ). The closest I have come is to go into Reading View and clicking on each item that is longer than it will display to put it into edit mode, but that's a painful way to go over your prayer list - I'd really like to pull up the list and then just pray, rather than monkeying around with the mouse all the time.

  18. Assign panels a resource type for opening resources

    I would like to assign 1 or more resources types to a panel within a layout so that there is control for opening a resource of that type. For example, one panel might be assigned as 'Dictionaries', another 'Notes' another 'Commentaries' , or 'Resources', 'Bibles'. When a new resource is opened from the PG, library or button bar, it should open in the panel assigned to that type of resource, or default to whatever scheme is currently used by Logos (I have no idea what that is since it follows no apparent logic - it is not 'like with like',…

  19. Sequence all search results - book or rank

    All search results including those in the Passage Guide and Exegetical Guide should be viewable in either book or rank order. Example: in the Collection section of the Passage Guide, the results should keep all entries within a book together rather than offering only a "ranking" sequence

  20. list total occurrences of Greek word in information window

    In L3 an option for the information window allowed for the listing of total number of uses of a Greek word in the book/letter being used as well as in the entire New Testament. This was a very helpful item.
