Can I have some help. I'm reviewing Logos 7 for Church Tech Today and plan to list my top 5 new features. I'd like to get your suggestions from the awesome users here in the forums. What's your list of the top 5 new features?

Wow, Kevin ... this is embarrassing, since we want to impress your readers with Logos.

I can only think of MultiView. Plus the 2 Vulgate interlinears and the DSS one.  Hopefully others can remember more.

  • Info window
  • Psalm/Proverb Explorers
  • NT Use of OT
  • Bible Outline Browser

A highly subjective question.... Many may list those things they are currently using and enjoying... Nevertheless, my 5 are:

Discourse Datasets and Visual Filters
New Testament Use of the Old
Sermon Editor
Corresponding Notes and Highlights
Corresponding Words Visual Filter

What's interesting is that apart from multivew, there's hardly any overlap between the lists. That's why people complain of bloat — it's necessary, because we all appreciate different things!

No one has mentioned my favorite L7 feature, the Courses tool.

Perhaps Mobile Ed highly skews how I happen to use Logos, but the Courses tool (along with Multi view) is also the top-used new feature, for me.

I have Logos 7, but I don't have Discourse Datasets and Visual Filters. I think this feature is only in Logos Now. 

My five personal favorites are:

1. Multiview Resources

2. Concordance

3. Link a Lexicon to a Bible and link Bible Study Word to a Bible

4. Corresponding Words Visual Filter

5. Systematic Theology Section

My Favorites are:

1) Sermon Editor
2) Corresponding Words VF
3) Multiview
4) Psalms/Proverbs Explorer
5) Addressee/Speaker Icons
6) Bible Outline Browser

I would/could probably add in the courses tool, but I've already gone "over my limit."

Systematic and Biblical Theology, also the Confessional Documents sections added to the Guides.

1. Concordance

2. Courses

Those are the only ones I use (so far), although the Bible Browser, Sermon Editor, and Multiview are probably of interest to lots of people.

Multiview

Concordance

NT use of old

Courses Tool

Adddressseee

I think Bible Browser is really Logos Now and not Logos 7, so it's really Logos 8 which isn't yet.
