    Tim, I'm glad customer service was able to help you recover your notes. (For everyone else, you can undelete notes from the Trash icon on the lower left of the Notes tool).

    I'm surprised to hear that you have duplicate notes, judging from the way you describe it, from migrating to the old notes system to the new system. This should not be the case, except in rare instances where you might have been using the old notes and new notes in the same time period.

    Deleting all notes in the selected text is the way it has always worked in Logos, but I can see how that might be confusing. Thanks for the feedback; I'm interested to hear if others have had the same confusion.

    All or most of this is already possible in "Everything" search.
    - Clippings and Bibliography documents in Logos are already indexed for search.
    - Notes search has been unavailable in Basic Search in 8.0-8.3, but is currently in beta in 8.4; planned to ship April 15.
    - I'm not sure what you mean by searching "papers"; if you use Sermon Editor to write your papers, those also are already indexed. If you write your papers in MS Word, you could import the docx file as a Personal Book for searchability in Logos.

    If you're starting from resource text, try this: select the text you want to add to your sermon in the resource, then press Ctrl+C / Cmd+C. In an empty paragraph in the Sermon editor, press Ctrl+V / Cmd+V to paste. The text should appear as a blockquote with slides automatically created. Click the slide image then Edit to open the Media tool. From here you can find a different background or edit the text, then click Update Sermon to save the changes back to the sermon.

    Logos 7 doesn't have a feature specifically named "sermon builder"; are you referring to the Sermon Starter Guide on the Guides menu, or the Sermon Editor on the Documents menu?

    Sorry for the inconvenience, this sounds like a bug. Try right-clicking in the Password field and choosing Paste from the context menu.

    The icon already shows the color and indicator icon style chosen for the current note. How would you envision the markup style actually being shown? The previews shown in the Highlighting panel are rather large; it seems like it would be extremely cluttered if they were shown next to each note. Or did you have something else in mind?

    The titles of resources can be edited in the Library (just show the information pane on the right then click on the title). This will let you put the author name first on resources for which this is important.

    You can press Alt+D (Windows) or ⌥⌘L (Macintosh) to set focus to the command box.

    A future version of Logos 5 will add a "Save as Passage List" command to the context menu for most Guide Sections, which will partly address this suggestion.

    As a workaround, if you open the LEB text (the Bible, not the audiobook) and choose "Read aloud" on the Panel menu (Ctrl+R/Cmd+R), the audio will keep playing at the next chapter.

    @Josh Y: A free upgrade to Logos 5 will be available in the near future. I'm not sure what your comment "lose some functionality" refers to; nothing will be lost when upgrading to Logos 5 (at any price point).

    @Jacques: Most updates and thoughts from Logos are posted in the Logos.com forums, not on UserVoice. For an example, see this recent thread on full screen support: http://community.logos.com/forums/t/47206.aspx

    Type "g:" or "h:" before your search term to suggest Greek or Hebrew words using untransliteration.
    If you want to type the Greek/Hebrew letters directly (without untransliteration) and you use Windows, then we recommend installing our custom Greek and Hebrew keyboards: http://www.logos.com/support/windows/L3/keyboards. Once they're installed (and you learn the layout) you can use them to type Greek and Hebrew into any Windows program, not just Logos. You can also switch between the keyboards easily with a hotkey (configurable in Windows).

    Sending us a log of Logos 4 startup should help us identify the component that's causing this delay.

    On the resource's Panel menu, ensure that "Show locator bar" is checked. On the right of the locator bar, change the navigation type to "Verse" (it may say "Article" by default). Then use Alt+Down and Alt+Up to go to next/previous verse. All resources in the same link set should move in sync.

    Logos will not be developing or bundling additional voices with Logos 4, but will continue to support all installable voices that use Microsoft's speech API. Nextup.com has a wide variety of voices, many of which claim to be SAPI4 and SAPI5 compatible so they should work with Logos 4.

    Logos 4 will use whichever voice is selected in "Text to Speech" settings in Control Panel; if Neospeech voices are available there, you can select them for Logos 4 to use.

    Right-click a small portion of the text that has the incorrect highlight (this can be as small as one character), choose "Selection" on the right, then "Remove highlighting" from the context menu. This will remove the entire span of highlighting for all highlights on the text you right-clicked on.

    I'm perhaps not explaining it very well, but I think it should do what you want, espeically for cases where huge blocks of text have been highlighting incorrectly.

    There are two ways to accomplish this: 1) assign a shortcut key to your favourite highlighting style, select text with your mouse, and press the key to highlight; see http://wiki.logos.com/Highlighting#Shortcut_keys
    2) if you have multiple monitors, float the Highlighting panel and move it to your second monitor.
