Comprehensive Clipping Changes
:) if someone has a better synonym for re-work - let me know.
Just like Martha proposed to consolidate our UserVoice votes around notes with a comprehensive list of changes/suggestions, let's unite our voices to ask for better Clippings!
1. Organize clipping files alphabetically
2. Allow clippings from all Logos resources (Bible Word Studies, maps, etc)
3. Allow clippings from non-Logos resources (internet, email, etc.) In other words, as a MINIMUM allow us to make BLANK clipping within a clipping file and paste whatever we want. User can fill in the URL or other bibliographical info manually, or (if it is done from the web) it can be automatically filled (like OneNote).
4. Add an option that their clippings can be shared OR remain private and not uploaded to Logos servers.
5. Allow importing pictures into clippings (I know many view this is a NOTE function, but in my paradigm, the raw content goes into a clipping, and my analysis and my thoughts of the raw content goes into the note)
6. Ability to search within the clipping file just like in a “normal” resource. Right now search finds the clipping FILE containing the search term, which can be buried among hundreds of clippings within that file.
7. (I think this is a related issue) allow links to a specific clipping, NOT just to the clipping file in general.
8. Add options for sorting Clippings similar to Library pane, including option to expand/hide the actual notes
a. Alphabetically by Resource (this function can be used to view the “user-generated” summary of a book)
b. Alphabetically by author (my own version of “Best quotations of XYZ)
c. Alphabetically by tag (my own version of “Quotations on the topic of ABC)
d. Chronologically by created/last modified date
9. Assign a special user-defined Highlighting style or icon to indicate that this selection has been added to a clipping. Allow to global-search for this highlighting style (to find clippings in more than 1 clipping file).
10. Allow clippings themselves to be Highlighted
In my opinion, clippings need also two more features:
1) headings: add an option to allow heading insertion to group clippings under it
2) verse marker (this option should be added to notes documents, too): make it possible to manually insert any passage reference to a clipping, making it searchable in passage guides and as result under "MY CONTENT" drop down box when performing a basic search on a specific passage.
