Canvas is a new tool in Logos that allows you to visually engage with the text. Insert a verse, passage, or pericope, then use the markup tools to highlight, arrange, investigate, and add notes. Break down a passage to show the relationship between clauses, and draw lines and other shapes to indicate the level of connection.

Bible text inserted into a canvas retains its connection with all of Logos’ sophisticated data tagging, which you can draw on to create rich info cards to document your research on words, topics, and more.

We've prepared an introduction to Canvas here:

Feel free to use this forum thread for feedback and questions.

Will this make use of touchscreen capabilities and digital pens?

The Canvas tool appears to have problems displaying Hebrew text (e.g., from Lexham Hebrew Bible). The spelling of word units (including affixes and clitics) goes from right to left, but the words are arranged from left to right (i.e., in phrases, clauses, sentences). Changing the text-direction doesn't seem to make a difference.

Are there any plans to add more keyboard support for interacting with the text?

I don't believe that Hebrew is supported on Canvas yet. I remember some discussion about this earlier, and I think that it's being considered. I could be completely wrong, and I'm sure a VIP will be along soon to give a more definitive answer.

Hey Ross, 

Not at this stage. But I know it was a heavily requested feature when L8 was in Beta testing so it may be something that comes out in a future update.

You're right that Hebrew isn't supported on Canvas yet. It's not been dismissed but users will need to voice their desire for this in order for Faithlife to prioritize it. They're taking quite an iterative approach with Canvas and will develop further based on user feedback, so join me in clamoring for Hebrew support!😉

This is why I love being a Logos user so much! Our ideas and feedback matter.

This is not currently supported but is on the team's list for possible inclusion in a future update to Canvas.

Your not the lone voice. This should definitely be up on the list of features to be enabled.

Rest assured, you are not a lone voice, DominicM. The top four most requested features from our closed beta were: layers, image import, free-form drawing, and improved Hebrew support. We did not have time to get to them within that short testing period, but they are all on our short list of things to consider for the future of Canvas.

Thank you, Alan, for that information.

FL has accomplished so much with today's rollout of new tools and features, and it's exciting that tools like Canvas will only get better over time.

Please add me to the list of those clamoring for Hebrew support. Touchscreen support too. This could be the best tool for analyzing text. Making visual connections like this is very important to me.
