There are about 200 million speakers of Indonesian, 15% of which are Christian. Compare that to the total number of speakers of various languages that already have a Logos user interface: Swedish (12 million), Afrikaans (17 million), Dutch (22 million), Italian (66 million), Korean (77 million), German (130 million). And with 700 languages, Indonesia has many active Bible translation projects, whose local translators would benefit from access to some resources that are already included in Logos, not to mention other resources that could be included.1 vote
See https://community.logos.com/forums/t/69557.aspx for an overview of our UI translation process. We first start with community contributions, then (based on interest) possibly hire staff to oversee and complete the work.
The Indonesian UI translation project is available for anyone to contribute to here: https://crowdin.com/project/logos-desktop-ui/id
When I'm searching my library for "Harmony of the Gospels," this particular book appears as the 22nd search results. The 21 results that appear before it don't have anything close to that title in them. My filter is set to sort by title. Something is wrong with your Library Search Feature.1 vote
This is working as designed.
A query in the Library searches across all types of metadata (title, author, description, etc.) by default.
When sorting the results by title, all matching records will be sorted alphabetically by title. To show the most relevant records at the top, sort by the “Rank” column. Or to search just titles, use title:“Harmony of the Gospels”.
PLEASE establish a method that when you are in a Snapshot layout and insert a chapter and verse in the Passage Guide that it will synchroniz
Changing the chapter and text in the Passage Guide should allow it to synchronize with all other windows open in the Snapshot view. We should not have to go back to the home page to keep everything addressing the same location.1 vote

For Bible quotations (e.g. from the Copy Bible Verses tool), follow the SBL Manual of Style and Christian Writers Manual of Style
Currently, Logos places a comma between the chapter:verse and the Bible version. Standard practice according to SBL and CWMS style manuals is as follows:
"For God so loved the world . . ." (John 3:16 KJV).
Notice the placement of the parenthetical note just before the final period, with no comma.
It would be really nice not to have to manually change this after pasting Bible quotations. Thank you for your consideration!1 vote
This can be accomplished by creating your own CBV style. Start with one that’s close to what you want (e.g., Quotation), then in the Style picker, click “Create a new style” at the bottom left. Delete the command from the =Footer section, then add a period and make other changes as desired.

When Grammars use a particular passage to discuss a grammatical issue, that passage is always listed in the grammar. It'd be great if we had a "grammar search" ability. The program could search all our grammars for any biblical passage.1 vote
A “Grammars” section can be added to the Passage Guide or Exegetical Guide to search Grammars. You can also add a “Collections” section tied to a collection of your favourite grammars.

Drop and Drag in Logos 8 Notes... please move it up on the priority list. And thanks for all you are doing!1 vote
Drag and drop already exists to perform these actions in notes:
Move note to notebook
Move note to trash
Rearrange notebook order
I work in a multilingual church, often studying in English, but keeping active notes in Spanish. However, my English notes/highlights are not showing up in my Spanish Bibles, and vice versa. I would love to be able to find my active Spanish notes anchored to the same verse in my English Bibles for later reference, and the other way around.1 vote
You can do this by anchoring your notes to reference: https://support.logos.com/hc/en-us/articles/360017978372-Notes-Tool#h.9d6bjkfjxlfy
If both your English bible and your Spanish bible have a reverse interlinear, your notes and highlights will also be available in the Corresponding Notes and Highlights visual filter.
include the works of Ravi Zacharias in your library. Perhaps the greatest modern day Christian apologist
Please consider adding the works of Ravi Zacharias. Perhaps you already have and if so I apologize.1 vote
A number of Zacharias’s works are available through our line of trade books at Faithlife Ebooks, which integrate seamlessly with your Logos library. https://ebooks.faithlife.com/search?filters=author-13351_Author
It would be great if the Concordance feature could run a full Concordance report for the AV (KJV 1611). This way we could research the findings of the Greek text that it uses.
This is beneficial for those that want a well rounded approach to scholarship being that different versions of the bible use different interlinears.1 vote
The Concordance tool already works will all resources you have in your library. (It sounds like what you are really asking for is a reverse interlinear for AV; please make that suggestion at https://suggestbooks.uservoice.com .)
Scrolling or paging can be set per-resource with the Columns setting in the resource panel menu. https://support.logos.com/hc/en-us/articles/360016752571-Resource-Panel-Menu

This was implemented in Logos 4.5.
I imagine that many users have years of notes, sermons, outlines, and other forms of digital resources in text form. If Logos 4 could index these locally stored files for keywords or references, they could possibly be integrated into the "passage guides" when researching.0 votes
The software won’t index arbitrary files, but if the data is compiled into a Personal Book, it can be searched and displayed in the Passage Guide.

Note indentation was implemented in “Split” view in Logos 4.6.
