I agree - and a feature I love about clippings is the ability to TAG them with keywords! I have already begun to collect clippings and by tagging them I can find clippings by group or subject. Nice touch!

I like the clippings ability, too. But, is it possible to bring an outside source (from another Bible study program) via the clipboard...in all of my attempts so far, that has not been the case. I really hope it can be done, otherwise I'll have to suffer without fully utilizing my resources.

Among other things, I really like the custom reading plans that work for any book in my library (I guess it works for all)

WOW - Thanks Jack I had not thought about reading plans for other books. It was a feature I always wanted in L3 but hadn't looked for it in L4 - It seems to work with any book. This is going to make many of my books more useful.

I also really like the new Morphological Search functionality. Once I learned the @ symbol trick - the tool is very easy to use. Also doing searches for Greek words by typing the English transliteration (the g: trick) is much easier than L3! Love it!

Works with page numbers! I'm hoping they can implement chapter - Bob is aware and wants input on this.

I like the scrollbar bookmarks, information and power lookup windows, and I love the look and feel of the panes/windows interface - very easy to customize.  One of my favorite features is having a picture of the book at the top of the pane and also having the information button to click on for a summary of the book  - and you can even hover over each title to bring book info up quickly.

wonder if you could hook up "Dragon Naturally Speaking" to Logos?

You know, it has been over 10 years since using IBM's voice recognition software. I've always wondered how far the voice commands/dictation have come and now with your comment, how much Logos has incorporated the use of voice commands/dictation. Good suggestion, Daniel.

Does anyone have any experience in this area?

Windows Vista and Windows 7 have speech recognition built into the OS.

Big deal.  OS/2 4.0 had speech recognition built into the OS back in the 1990's

I like the tabs inside the context menu. At first I did not notice and understand that I could click on an item on the RIGHT (eg, Strong's number, passage reference, etc) and see a different set of corresponding options on the LEFT. As long as I did not know that, the context menu looked bare to me and lacking in some of the options I used to appreciate in Logos 3. With the use of the tabs, it is much better and in fact, quite useful.

In  the example below, this is what you get when right-clicking on the word "world" in Jn 3:16 (NASB95). It is "Reference" that is selected in the right frame (red rectangle), note the options on the left (blue and green rectangles).

If you click in the right on the Strong's number, you get what's below (different options):

In addition to the following, these tabs work in an amazing number of different places. For instance, a right-click on an item in the interlinear section of a Bible provides options pertinent to the interlinear data.

For instance, one can right-click on a Hebrew lemma and "Bible Word Study" will be one of the options. Do it from that spot and you save yourself the need to type the Hebrew or cut&paste into the search menu.

Another option is to click in the right frame on the Morph part. On the left will appear the option to do a morphological search for either the same word in the same form or just the form. Again, pretty cool and saving one from having to know how to write the syntax of the morph search. Even if one wants to do a more complex search with more than one term, using the context menu "Morph" part in the interlinear can serve as a reminder of how to search for this particular form.

That is cool.
