Greetings,

I would like to suggest the addition of a "Word Shape" feature that takes a selected text and turns it into a word cloud, or a word cross, or any other shape that Logos provides (and is submitted by the user).

I would also recommend these additional options:

  1. User can provide their own shapes in addition to the ones provided by Logos.
  2. Words appear either a) randomly, or b) in the order that they appear in the selected text.
  3. Define background colour and foreground (text) colour; the text colour could be a) a range between two colours, or b) up to ten or fifteen different random colours.
  4. Words vary in size either a) randomly to make shape; or b) according to the number of times that they appear (more times results in larger text); or c) user defines size of each word in selected passage (a standard default size is provided for each).
  5. If using a colour or greyscale picture to create the word shape, then #3 and #4 could be replaced by the option to "use colours and best font size to match picture."

For a visual demonstration of what I have in mind, type "word cloud" in Google's Image Search.

Thank you in advance for your consideration and vote!

Hi Roger:

Have you seen the Interesting Words feature of the Passage Guide?

Guides-->Passage Guide. Enter passage. Find Interesting Words at the bottom.

I don't think this satisfies all of your specs, but it's interesting.
