lol....love it!  Especially the "using google to search the Bible instead of Logos"  part

Yes it's been a very positive experience IMHO

It would be EXTREMELY helpful to people like me who teach in two languages to have two prioritization lists, one for each language. It is tiring to have to re-prioritize my list of books when I go to a conference in Spanish and teach and present, then have to -reprioritize to my English resources when I study/teach in English. Logos has resources in both languages, as well as the Biblical languages directly into those languages. THAT would be ideal.

This is definitely not something that was in 7 and is missing in 8 but it is an interesting idea.

You might like to do something to make sure that the idea is not lost in a forum where it's inclusion is irrelevant to the current discussion.

Would you consider reposing in either the 'Suggestions Forum' or even in the 'General Forum' where some like minded folk would be more likely to see and support the idea.

You never know there may be somebody in the programming team who thinks this is a simple feature to add!

But it was posed as a question (by Bradley?) in regards to the missing "set preferred Bible"!😉 IIRC, he asked whether we need to only set a single Bible or would we like to switch an entire prioritization set. Though I'm happy with my prioritization and therefore it's a low priority for me, I see the value in and like this idea.

Could this not also be somewhat resolved by created language specific collections and then using the parallel resources feature?

We're considering making a command to "Set preferred Bible to____" in the Go Box, which you could then save as a shortcut. That way, you could set up several shortcuts to change your preferred Bible with just a click. Do you think that would meet your needs?

This would be GREAT.  I need to change my preferred Bible based on different studies/audiences.  This would be VERY helpful.  Thank you (in advance!).

Phil,

I don't think this has been mentioned yet, but the Logos 7 feature I find myself missing the most is that the version 8 Passage Guide does not generate a hyperlink to the passage you are studying as the version 7 did. I did not realize how much I used this until it disappeared. Sure I can click the back arrow in my bible, but sometimes my study has taken me a half dozen or more clicks away from my original passage.

Yea! this for sure! Why remove something so handy!

This behavior sounds awesome. Changing all the prioritized resources at once would be a neat feature. But where do you end? Have five sets ready to go? More or less?  I have no problems changing the prioritization to fit my needs in any context quickly and decisively.
