I'm a real fan of tabs in Logos, and in 8 every tab in a linkset as a linkset indicator. I'd like to turn off that indicator since it just wastes precious space in my layout. I don't see an obvious setting to toggle. Thanks.

I don't think there is an option to do so, curious as to why you would want to do this and not readily see what is linked together?

There's no way to turn these off manually (except of course leaving the linkset). I do believe the plan had been to hide these as space was needed but that's not happening. We'll have to see whether that's a bug or a change in design plan (in either case your feedback is valuable).

Because I KNOW what is linked together. It is for me not a helpful visual clue but a waste of space.

Hi Clint! This option is not currently available with Logos 8. Thanks!

I agree that this has to be addressed. It is a huge problem visually and takes up way too much space.

That and the book icons too. At that size, the book covers as icons are just amorphous blobs of color. When I get a lot of tabs open I'd rather see the first few letters of each title. This is a serious usability flaw.

That was discussed in beta ... for myself ... think retired a decade ago for age, I find the book icon essential ... color is generally sufficient for me to recognize my commentary series which is where I need the visual clue the most as the names don't tell me which commentary series it is. My point is that users have differing opinions on this - and can justify their opinion based on genuine usability issues.

I'm adding my voice to requesting this option be made available, or the display option reverted to previous default. I haven't loaded Logos 8 in maybe a month -unusual for me! When I did today I was shocked by how much larger the link-set icons are. I had everything arranged where all my loaded resources in each of my four columns were pretty much visible "all at once," but this change just makes things unwieldy (I have *lots* of resources loaded). Please "put it back" the way it was, or enact the good suggestions being made here and on other threads.

Removing the links is not an option I want to have to resort to -I don't want every single resource I have visible changing when I scroll one of the columns. The ability to have most linked and jointly scrolling while also having some remain static is a workflow I've become very accustomed to (and fond of!). Not to mention the fact that having to click-click-click-click through the resources I have in each window / column is already annoying -and this is only my first day of having to deal with this!!   

Thank you!
