I have a new problem.  Used to in my earlier version of Logos when I was reading a book in Logos and closed Logos it would automatically open to my open books the next time I came into Logos.  Now when I shut my computer off, the next day when I open Logos the books are gone.  And I have to hunt for the books and reopen.

How do I get books to stay open when I shut the computer off? I like to be able to access what I've been reading without hunting for the book.

Any tips?

Thanks,

Susan Murphy

You could use the layout menu to return to the layout when you closed

or you can change the default opening layout

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

M.J.'s way is the best way. But if I am reading only one or two books, I will move them up to the shortcuts bar and then they will be marked at where I stopped reading. You can also use  favorites but I find it to be a nuisance because it has to be updated every time I stop reading a book or when I open it again,  it will revert back to the place the last time I marked it.  Like I said, MJ's way is probably the best way. Just be sure you update before you close the layout. Or you can go with the last closed application.

Exactly what do you mean by update.  Save?  And how?  

Thanks.

Initially, you save as a named layout with a specific name. Then, when you have made changes to a specific layout, you update active. For example, if you read 20 pages in a resource, you would then update the layout so it remembers where you had stopped reading.
