DominicM:
31 is a repeat on 14
I disagree. 

There's a big difference between saying, "Go over there and look at this, here's the link." and "here it is!" 

Of course I view hyperlinks as links to anywhere and attachments as one step closer to embedding.  To which I would add my desire to embed such items.  :-)  Up the ante.

Not sure if this fits into this conversation, but notes up and running in, and syncing with my logos iPhone app would be extremely useful to me, as well...especially if the other enhancements happen.

When attaching a note to a word (or phrase) in any Bible with a lemma layer (Greek, Hebrew, Interlinear, Reverse Interlinear), attach the note to the lemma of that word (or first word of a phrase) so the note is available in the same verse and word in other Bibles that also have the lemma layer.

DominicM:

29 seems pointless - just add your note to main note body at end of text..
31 is a repeat on 14

27 is alread in Beta12 with ecxeption of Underline and multiple list formats, bullet and numbered are included

Hi Dominic,

I went ahead an made some edits to the list, combining like requests.

DominicM:
30 cant see that happening, would need another layer on the UI, and there are better progs out there that already do it..

I can see what your are saying, and it goes along with Logos' philosophy of not wanting to "rebuild the wheel" so-to-speak. But there are many users (like me) who would love to see L4 as a "one stop" go-to tool, that doesn't require the use of another program to accomplish goals.

DominicM:
are you able to delete the old list revisions?  it might help reducing duplicate requests

Like Rosie said, no. The main reason that I'm adding the requests to the list goes along with your original purpose for this post. For the last 5 months when ever there has been a post about desired features for notes, it becomes so long that it makes it hard (for me anyway) to remember all the requests. I figured with a updated list at the end of the post, it would help those who view it get a quick idea of requests so far.

Thanks for starting something good! Yes

Any word from Logos whether this list of features represents pipe dreams or possible reality at some point?  For me, note-taking is the primary activity I perform as I read and study and notes are the primary output of my labours.  I would guess that this is the case for many (if not most) others too. Thus, anything that improves Logos' ability to capture and manage notes can only be good for the product long-term.

Might a Logos heavyweight (Bob, perhaps?) comment on this wishlist?

I think a good place to keep this list would be http://wiki.logos.com/Feature_Wishlist . I would recommend starting a new section just for notes, then filter any duplicates out of the other list.

Why not use logos.uservoice.com instead, then we can see how the user base as a whole feels about these.

Yes, it is "officially endorsed" -- it was announced here on the forum by Bob Pritchett himself. It's experimental so far, but they'll definitely be paying attention to it:

I would think that when Bob P. announces it as an experiment it is officially endorsed. I think that the initial results may not be super-helpful because some of the features requested have already been committed to. And it will take a bit of time for people to learn how to word requests effectively. But when I look at how the requests and priorities are sorting out, I am encouraged that it will become representative and useful.
