We're thrilled so many of you love Logos 9. We're hard at work making it even better, and we'd love your feedback on some of the things we're considering for upcoming 9.x releases. (For those of you who are newer, we generally ship a new point release every six weeks.)

Please review this list and vote on anything you'd really like to see us prioritize over the next 3–6 months. This isn't everything we're considering. It's just some of the major themes I've seen bubble up so far through a variety of channels. We probably won't be able to get to all of this, so we want to make sure we're solving the most important problems first.

Ability to drag and drop items into a folder rather than right clicking then typing in the name of the folder.  It'd be more intuitive to just drag and drop.  Also right clicking on the toolbar to create a new folder would be more intuitive as well.

Allow folders to represented as an icon and show the name when hovering over like a resource to save on space.

Further improve/expand/fix Dark Mode:

  • Allow more options for resource backgrounds.  I'd like an option for a pure black background and not just dark gray. 
  • Custom highlights with light backgrounds are currently unusable.  The light gray text is illegible when using light backgrounds.  This has been an issue for several versions.  Dark Mode just exacerbated the issue.  What I mean by that is the stock solid color options work just fine, but selecting the closest color available in the custom pallet does not result in the same behavior.  You can test this out by selecting the blue, yellow, and green colors in the custom palette the most closely matches the blue, yellow, and green in the solid color palette.  You'll see that the dark mode behavior is vastly different.

This is a mockup for a black background:

The citations app is frustrating.  I don' t know how it could have gone this long without fixing it.

The app has Logos cite the source when you copy and paste from a resource to another document.

It also takes every abbreviation found in the text and explains it in a footnote type of layout.

i.e. no footnote numbers but it gives line after line of explanations of the abbreviations in the footer of the page.  

Why? 

This needs to be separated into two separate functions.  One for the source citation and one for abbreviations, if anyone actually wants to use that.

This may be the wrong place to mention this, and I do apologize, but I wish some of the guides/tools could be sold indiviudally (Lemma in Passage). I have been with Logos since 2.1. I have 5000+ books. I honestly do not need many of the tools bundled together. But I am very pleased with version 9 bundles and dynamic pricing.

I assume that means being able to load  non Logos sermons, now in, for example, docx format, into Sermon Manager or can that already be done?

[[Have not "played" with that toy yet.]]

I think this person is asking the same question:

I posted about this earlier in the week, but I'll mention it again to try to get more votes. Please modify Concordance or Word List so that it's possible to export a list of Greek/Hebrew words for a given passage with the following information in 4 columns:
1. lemma
2. lemma gloss/definition
3. root
4. root gloss/definition

It would be great if we could also export this 4 column list such that the 4 columns are grouped under the root for each lemma

Make Biblical People diagrams visible when using Dark Mode.  You see the cartoon/figure but you can’t read the name underneath.

It's something I'm looking into, but I want to keep most of the focus for now on improving the Logos 9 experience. It's possible we could get to that, too. But I want to double down on the new and improved features first.

To be honest this list is a big miss for me, I don't care for Dark Mode and have no use for Sermon Builder or Sermon Manger which seems to the your major focus with a little bit of tweaking to Factbook experience thrown into the mix - And I undestand why it is a focus just giving my honest feedback on what I consider critical to how I use the software.

Don't get me wrong though Phil, there is lots to like about Logos 9, the team has done a good job this time around. Somehow though Sean's team needs to get better support to have more tagging done at release that supports new features. They do a fantasic job with what they have and the time frames that have to do things. So what i want most if for tagging work to be given  priority if at all possible.

DIsciple II:
with a little bit of tweaking to Factbook experience thrown into the mix

I rarely consider your statements flat out wrong but this time I do. Why?

  • I don't think making the Figurative Language dataset usable with  Factbook entries such as Figurative Language Related to Abraham tweaking.
  • I don't think of providing a list of authors (with works in Logos) associated with a denomination tweaking.
  • I don't think of providing a unified interface to linguistic terminology tweaking
  • I do think of adding disambiguation pages as tweaking
  • I do think of adding Key Articles as tweaking
  • I do think of the Passages/Key Passages conversion as tweaking

I think three samples of each is sufficient to illustrate my view.
