You may also find this resource helpful: https://www.logos.com/product/7299/thats-easy-for-you-to-say-your-quick-guide-to-pronouncing-bible-names-3rd-ed

It's included in a lot of Logos 8 base packages.

I REALLY love that little resource. I keep it pinned and use it often.

Phil (and FL team):

In case this hasn't come up in this (very long ;) thread, please review what's referenced here:

https://community.logos.com/forums/t/175093.aspx?PageIndex=2

"Polish" or "fit and finish" improvements like these really do go a long way toward the product "feeling" finished and improving user experience.

Customize Keyboard Functionality: It probably is too late to get any changes into Logos 9 at this late stage of development, but what I would love to see is the ability to create keyboard shortcuts to all features and functions of Logos. Something similar to Microsoft Word's Customize Keyboard functionality.  I do use Favorites/Bookmarks but that is limited to 9 shortcuts. I also use the Copy Location as L4 along with the Alfred App to speed up searches, but what is still lacking is a robust system of shortcuts.

This is brilliant. Thanks for all that you and your team does, Phil!

Reading Plans and Doc sharing are two areas I feel that need the most improvement.

Reading Plans

The creation, navigation, and collaboration that Logos offers is all a bit dated and “clunky” ... and that’s just coming from someone who has used other reading plans apps in order to supplement my expansive Logos library. I have tens of thousands of books in my library, but I still find myself going to other platforms (apps) in order to read books/devotionals or plans together with family and friends.

This seems like it could be much simpler than it is.

Docs

Honestly, it’s much the same here. Most platforms at this price point have some sort of collaborative, built-in text editing to it. Notion, Google Drive, Microsoft, etc. ... there are plenty of great examples. Especially with how easy it is to both share and navigate cloud-based documents these days (i.e., Google Drive), it just seems like it would be incredibly difficult to improve Community Docs and Notebooks.

My dream wish:

I wish that my Logos Library would include the same lovely layout of categories we find on the base package pages. For example:

Imagine if we had the option to arrange Library Filters alphabetically to better find what we were looking for.

Oh. So, maybe like they did in the Aegean a few years back ... alpha, beta, etc. I forget the last one ... something about the end of time.

Another area for improvement is the formatting of tables. Often tables are almost if not entirely unusable on a phone because it tries to adjust the column sizes to fit in the screen, but in doing so cause text in the cells to wrap into multiplel lines. Google Docs does this really well. If you open a Google Docs document on a phone with tables that don't fit, the text reflows as expected but the tables remain fixed width as they were created. As you scroll down the document you can scroll right/left once you get to the table, which pans only the table but not the document text. This would be a very big improvement especially for grammars which contain a lot of tables.

Yes. This is my experience as well.

Phil Gons (Faithlife):

  • What improvements should we make to existing features?

Text Comparison Tool
- move % difference indicator towards the front, in between the translation abbreviation and begging of the verse. This should improve “scanability”. Often times I’m looking for versions that are drastically different from my base version, especially if that version is normally very similar.
- Include an option to turn off text wrapping.
- Standardize the starting position of verses to improve scanability, essentially a three-column view where the version, %, and verse would be lined up.

Notes/Notebooks
- Include a notebook icon, especially for Workflow, so that you can still have individual notes, but rather than each one showing up on your verse, only the notebook is visible. When you hover over the icon, as a note icon, you would see a preview of the contents of the notebook.

Clippings
- include a “peg board” view in clippings that allows you to stack/collect like-clippings in what would essentially be a subfolder within the note. Larger search projects become too burdensome for the simple list view.

Workflows

- make workflow Q/A input boxes fully editable like a notes document

Phil Gons (Faithlife):

  • What new features should we add?

NEW TOOL: Text Editor (not to be confused with Sermon editor)
- Personally, I feel the sermon editor needs to remain sermon/presentation focused. But I also like the idea of being able to write articles and more extensive notes in Logos. (Honestly, this is something that could be done within notes, if more text editor/html/markdown features were included.)

Layouts
- include a “send resource here” function similar to “send hyperlink here” Ideally this would be done to help keep a clean desktop so that only one resource is open at a time. You could limit it based on tags, type, collections, “everything”, etc.

I would really like to see more tools for the non-academics like interactives (both updates to the current ones and new ones) for use in presentations to small groups and classes.

In searching All Resources, I'd like a new option: besides Ranked, By Resource, and By Count, I'd also like to see By Publication Date.

I have a case here where I would like to tag multiple verses with a note.  Like a visual filter, but for notes.

Anything remotely like that currently available?

Any reason you can't use multiple anchors to achieve this?

hmmm, I don't know.

Never used anchors.  Let me play around with that and see.  

thank you

I think this would require me to identify all the verses first, while a visual filter just does that for me.

Right?
