Here I go again: It'd be nice to have the ability to add pictures that zoom in and out to the sermon editor for those of us who are more advanced and present from our screen instead of power point.  I know it can be done.  It's just a matter of getting it done.  If the 300 Quotations series and other resources have the ability to click on an image and zoom it, why can't it be done with the sermon editor?  I'm beginning to use Accordance's Paper (sermon editor) more; especially for my screen recording lessons and this feature is really helpful.  Not to mention that many have asked how I do what I do and my answer has to be, go and buy Accordance, instead of Logos.  You're really missing out on more sales because the sermon editor is too basic and lacks such a useful functionality along with other features that only the competition has. Here's a sample image from the 300 Quotations series that has pictures that zoom when you click on it.  It would have to be improved, but it's a start:

Here's what Accordance sermon editor does:

Outline with normal pictures inserted:

Outline with zoomed pictures after you click on the image:

By doing this, people are able to follow your outline as you explain it, you have your preferred Bible opened to the right side of the screen for verses to instantly open there when you click on the Bible reference; and not only that, but the pictures zoom in and out or can even go full screen when you click on them for illustration purposes.

When I present video lessons on my YouTube Channel this feature really shines! But guess who's software people are seeing and asking about? Yep, you guess it correctly: Accordance and not Logos! 

This feature has been requested before and I'm a firm believer that it would make the sermon editor more useful than just creating slides that have to constantly be reworked because they're never formatted correctly.

Ah and did I mention you can change the font color and rearrange the sermon's outline without having to retype it? Yes, that's another feature that Accordance has that Logos's sermon editor is missing.

I hope this request can be considered and implemented.  It would boost your sales and it's would make the sermon editor more useful since most of my resources are in Logos both in English and Spanish.  I have to copy pictures and put them in Accordance to show them, because Logos lacks this feature.

But anyway, enough said! Please, implement this feature and you'll see what a game changer it will be for Logos.

And by the way, to add the images in Accordance, all you have to do is copy the image and paste it.  Very simple! 

To rearrange the outline all you have to do is click and drag where you want it and it automatically rearranges the numbers and letters.

And to change the font color, well, same as Word, you just change the font color Big Smile

I'm super pumped just talking about it! Now imagine if this and more was possible in Logos! My screen recording lessons would be even more awesome since all my resources would be available at the click of a button!

YesYes

The ability to add and manipulate images in all areas of the software (e.g. sermon editor, notes, canvas etc) is essential - especially in this visual-conscious age we live in.

Yes! And yet again, Accordance already has the ability to insert pictures in a note file.  I can’t believe Logos/FL is missing out and watching the parade go by on this very basic, but extremely important features. 🤷‍♂️

I am pretty sure they will fix that.

Can't wait for beta testing to start.

Well, I sure hope you know something I don't know.  It'd be great if they implemented this and other features to the sermon editor.  It would make it "The Ultimate Sermon Editor!"  Yes

I don't.  Just showing a little confident expectation because they call it faith life.
