  • Guides: The refreshed Guides menu makes finding your favorite guides easier than ever. Type to find anything, and pin your favorites to the top for quicker access. Guides are now easily editable. Open individual guide sections as standalone guides when you have a specific need and don’t need a full guide.
  • Guides Editor: Quickly and easily build guide templates to customize your study, and share them with others.

An improved user interface and toolbar buttons make your favorite features easier to use. A new Media visual filter shows you where you have Atlas maps, Verse of the Day graphics, and other media.
  • Search: New search templates make the power of advanced searching accessible to everyone. Easily favorite a search, so you can come back to it again later. A new Headword search extension allows you to search for terms or references within articles on a particular topic, a new systematic theology search extension does the same for systematic theology, the Morph Query Engine no longer requires a subscription, and indexing and searching are both faster compared to Logos 7.0.

  • Workflow Editor: Build and share your own workflow templates with others with the Workflow Editor.
  • Workflows: The flagship feature of Logos 8 is available in a basic form on the web, which allows you to access your workflows when you’re away from your computer.
