The following Faithlfe Feedback Logos Resource Update projects are in progress:

Okay, several of these are simply corrections not hints of L10. But are there other items you wish to see on the "in progress" list? Consider voting for these projects which already have significant support:

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

I would suggest the following be added to your list as I think it would be helpful to users...

Expand and Collapse ToC

xn = Christan  man=man -- Acts 11:26 "....and the disciples were first called Christians in Antioch".

Only official requests on Roadmap | Faithlife with seven or more votes made the list. Sorry.

List or no list, my suggestion for an important improvement to bring to Logos 10 or sooner would be to allow the Scripture text box which displays the referenced Bible verses upon mouse-over to resize to include the whole referenced passage to display. So often in my reading of a resource aloud to my wife I can read only the first two or three verses when four or more are given. Many times I can complete the text from memory, but many times memory fails me!

Now I know this suggestion may be out of place here. If anyone can help me by placing it where it belongs, help would be appreciated. At my advanced age some of these technical details are above my pay grade.

I don't buy this. My Dad was a retired cattle rancher turned county computer nerd - providing support for the county assessor's office and for the elementary school. He retired from going into the elementary school each morning when he was 86. I will agree that by 97 using a computer was nearly beyond him because of his very large hands and poor manual dexterity.

Here's one that has 18 votes that I would especially love to see implemented. It isn't in progress yet. I do think that it will become more requested as time goes on, as I think more people will be trying to access sermon docs created long ago...

https://feedback.faithlife.com/boards/logos-mobile-app/posts/sermons-make-sermon-mode-sermons-sortable

This is a request to order sermons differently when opening them in preaching mode (or in sermons) on mobile. Currently, they're listed in the order they were created. But, if you are going to use a sermon today, and you created it 10 months ago, it can be very difficult to find - you'll need to scroll down through every other sermon document you've created in the past 10 months to find it. There is no other option.

I would like to see them ordered by date last modified, with the most recently modified at the top.

Thank you, MJ. Smith!

My wife and sons would completely agree with you. But now my sons know far more about these things than I do. I started using computers in 1983.  And here I homeschooled them both. But they tell me they will never catch up to my knowledge of the Bible.

I hope Logos Ten developers will see my suggestion and make the improvement. Having a re-sizable Bible text box would help immensely in my reading and study of Logos and Faithlife resources.

Your idea has been discussed before. I've not understood their design rationale ... footnotes can get large popup boxes (I think at one point scroll-bars too) ... Bible popups have to stop the train, and go to another panel.

Today, on mobile, a major footnote popup grabbed almost the full screen ... the little Bible popups had to beg.

I enjoy your work.
