Better bookmark features
Bookmarking is fairly limited in Logos 4. I should be able to have as many bookmarks as I want in a book. I should also be able to use a short-cut that lets me popup my bookmarks and filter them by book, collection, tags, my mood, etc. This list should make it easy for me to jump back and forth between bookmarks. Perhaps there is even a short-cut key to jump back and forth between my last selected bookmark and my furthest position read. There should also be an automatic bookmark that saves the furthest page read so that if I jump to a prior bookmark, I can easily jump back to my prior location. I should have the option to delete any bookmark, a combination of bookmarks, all bookmarks for a book, etc. In other words, I should be able to have a series of book marks that I can easily get rid of in addition to being easily able to add them. I should also be able to write a short description for the bookmark, so that when I'm looking at a list of bookmarks I have a keyword that's meaningful to me and allows me to quickly jump to where I need to go. Color coding bookmarks would be neat, but not essential. There should also be some clear visual indicator that I've bookmarked a spot; preferably an elegant visual cue that's not distracting, but is still obvious.
As long as I'm asking for the moon - I'd like my bookmarks, as so conceived, to sync with my iPad and my android phone.
On a related note, the furthest page read should sync between my devices like my kindle does.

I've been using Logos for 25 years. Still waiting for books marks. Talk about patience! But...I know that the Logos software engineers can easily do the BM feature as described above. Any company that can make a bible software like Logos, can indeed design a simple BM and keep its data in a database for future searches. If Kindle can do BM's, why not Logos? Even Microsoft Word has BM's!! Let's do BM's before the Lord returns!! Afterward, who cares?? ;-)
I NEVER use the bookmarks tool. I find the "favorites" tool much more useful, since they're unlimited and you can organize them however you like. I have made a shortcut for "favorites," so it is always easy to access. You can save as many places in a book as you like with favorites - and it's as easy as clicking "ctrl+d" or "command+d" (for mac). Just a thought until Logos plans to do more with bookmarks down the road (fingers crossed).

Forum discussion => http://community.logos.com/forums/t/43754.aspx includes: "Having seen many books with sticky notes attached for quick flipping, wonder about a set of tabs that could be displayed along any side of the resource panel for quick flip locations. Ideally, the tabs would allow some labeling with highlighting (similar to a thumb indexed dictionary with a letter sticker). Preferably each resource would have an option to show/hide tab locations along with position in panel. Keep Smiling :) " with response: "That's a great idea! Perhaps there could be an option when editing/creating a bookmark to activate it as a tab. That way, if you have numerous bookmarks, you could control the clutter."
