I think a substantial subset of Logos Greek scholars and students would snap up a FULL version of Kurt Aland's Synopsis Quattuor Evangeliorum. By "full" I mean containing material and functionality absent from the SESB version:

  1. alignment of the parallels (as attempted in Throckmorton's Gospel Parallels)
  2. ability to highlight the text
  3. ability to double click on a word to reach one's preferred lexicon
  4. inclusion of the non-canonical parallels
  5. inclusion of the textual apparatus

A great suggestion! Smile

From experience though, Logos is slow to improve upon their SESB-sourced files, which I personally find disappointing. Sad

Yes, especially 

  1. inclusion of the textual apparatus

in Throckmorton's Gospel Parallels

Throckmorton based his work on the 9th edition of Albert Huck's synopsis. For the same five reasons mentioned above I would also like to suggest a full version of A. Huck & H. Greeven, Synopsis of the First Three Gospels With the Addition of the Johannine Parallels (Mohr Siebeck 1981, 13th ed.).

I would be just about as happy with Huck & Greeven if the five desiderata were included.

Yes

Many have expressed similar desires: http://community.logos.com/forums/p/25699/190054.aspx

Adam, thanks for the link. I see I posted to that thread back in December of 2010.

This would be a good time for any of you "out there" who have some connections with the good folk in Bellingham to try to nudge this along. One "card" to play would be citing Dr. Goodacre's comments in the thread to which Adam links directly above this post.

Steve, I agree that this would be a great addition to Logos, one which would appeal to many students and teachers. I remember being somewhat disappointed to learn that Logos's version of Aland's Synopsis was missing so many features that make it such a unique and useful tool. I would have gotten more use out of it in college if it had even some of the features you mentioned above.
