  1. Allow each pane to have an individual background color

    As people age, they need to vary the background colors available. Each pane should have both the background and foreground colors to be individually set by the user. This will also allow the user to better track his place in the software

  2. Improve graphic viewing within

    Wouldn't it be nice to zoom in on a graphic within a resource, instead of saving and using an outside viewer to view it?

  3. add NET Reverse Interlinear for OT and NT

    The NET Bible is a modern translation. Its many translation notes give a lot of insight into the translation process. Therefore it would be valuable to have the reverse interlinear with that Bible version. As for now we always have to switch Bible if we want to check out a note etc. Also, the NET is great recourses for Bible translators.

  4. Speed up Logos/Verbum!

    Without exaggerating, Logos is by far the most sluggish program on my computer. I have a fast i7 laptop, and anytime I open Logos, change the layout, open new resources, or do most kinds of operations, the program freezes for several seconds until it finally recovers and is workable again. Why is Logos so slow, considering that it mostly works with only text, not fancy graphics, video or sound?

  5. "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…

  6. Library hierarchy and filtering

    Finding products in the Logos and Vyrso shops is easy. Finding resources in your own library is hard. It should be as easy as browsing the shops:

    Hierarchy by topic, especially for vyrso titles (Christian Living, bio, theology, fiction, children, teens and suitable sub categories.
    Filtering by author, language, denomination etc.

    I want just the same functions that I have in the various Faithlife stores already, just inside the application.

  7. tag all the references properly in the Exegetical Summaries Series.

    The SIL Exegetical Summaries Series summarizes and organizes the content from major Bible commentaries and dozens of lexicons, making it invaluable for research. Combined with the tagging and linking power of Logos Bible Software, this has the potential to be one of the most powerful research tools available.

    Unfortunately, many of the links in these resources do not work properly. Sometimes the references are in Logos, but not linked. (For example, all of the Bible translations). Sometimes it takes several clicks to get to the resource you want. Other times it leads to bibliographical data, and not the resource in…

  8. Add Apple Pencil Integration

    It would be nice to seemlessly annotate resources using the Apple Pencil (or other styluses) as many other iPad apps have allowed for.

  9. Provide a way on-line to buy gift credits or gift cards for people who are on Logos. To gift people who are on Logos. Thanks!

    Provide a way to buy gift cards or gift credit for others who are on Logos. This would be a way on-line to buy these credits. Suggestion came from my son who wanted to buy gift credit as a gift for me and his pastor.

  11. Course Builder Tool

    Much like the current course tool, this tool would allow you to create a course on any topic or Biblical book you desire out of your own current library

  12. A tool that helps people find relevant application and change their lives

    I suggest that we build a tool that could be included in the Guides called the “Application Finder” which specifically helps you to find relevant, modern day application immediately. The final step of Bible study often taught is application, and it’s often described as the most important step, yet there’s no distinct focus on that area, looking at all the tools we’ve built for Logos so far.

    I work in Outbound Sales for Faithlife and I get a lot of people who ask how the program helps with application and I usually have to lean very much on individual resources…

  13. Floating window layouts

    In addition to our Layouts in L4, it would be neat if we could have Floating window layouts which would open without disturbing our current layout. see http://community.logos.com/forums/p/22540/168161.aspx#168161 for more details on this idea.

  15. Add Sorting Features to Basic Search Output

    I would like to sort the results of my basic searches in a similar way that I can sort the Library: author, type, title, etc. I would also like to be able to expand our collapse results by the above categories.

  16. Earn Money for Reporting Typos

    I was very disappointed with the last book that I purchased. It was one of those old classic commentaries that is worth it's weight in gold but unfortunately there were an abundance of typos in it. The was spelled "teh" or "hte" constantly as well as many other obvious mistakes. As I read the book I thought it would be great if I got $.10 - 0.25 for every mistake I found. If all logos users were encouraged to report typos in this way all of logos books would be greatly improved at a very low cost to Logos.

  17. Allow users to add hyperlinks

    As the number of Logos resources increases, older resources are missing hyperlinks to the newer resources. Use the technology behind notes and clippings to allow users to add their own hyperlinks, with the information stored in a separate hyperlinks file. The links added could be reported to Logos in the same way as typos are, facilitating the updating of the older resources.

  18. Make hyperlink color more distinguishable from black and/or allow user to customize it

    This has been a longstanding problem. See forum thread for links to many people who have requested this.

  20. black background

    Allow back ground through complete software to be changed to black as an option. Black background is used by the military for looking at computer screens for long periods of time. I have been designing home on a computer for 20 years and I think black ground is the most comfortable back ground in my experience. When I am in a church setting where lighting is low, the black background causes less disturbance to other people in the audience by not being so bright such as a white background which the white background can only be reduced so much by…
