Anybody else have an issue with the "x" in the book tabs? When I go from book to book, on occasion I will hit the "x" by accident and close a book in my layout. I would be nice to keep the book tabs free of the "x".

I think a big part of the problem is that the target area is much bigger than the X. You don't even need to click on the X to close the tab — anything within about 10-15 pixels seems to do so.

Yes. 

Fortunately, we can re-open recently closed tabs.  But it is a bigger pain than it should be.

My thanks to the various MVPs. Without them Logos would have died early. They were the only real help available.

The keyboard command is Ctr+Shift+T to reopen a recently closed Tab (Cmd for Mac)

Thanks for the tip. Works in Windows also.

This BUG is in dire need of extermination.

I sincerely wish that I could remember more shortcuts like this. Is anyone else like me and keeps forgetting them?

I remember Ctr+Shift+T because I use it all the time in Chrome.  Most of the rest I forget. Except 

Alt + L    Library

Alt  + H  Home

L & R Arrows to navigate among resources

Ctrl + = / -  to zoom in and out

Ctrl + A / C / V / P for select / copy / paste / print

F11 to float a window

I do have a shortcut to this:  https://support.logos.com/hc/en-us/articles/360016370932-Keyboard-Shortcuts

They're in the help file.

Shortcuts should only be necessary if you use them frequently. We shouldn't really need to remember a keyboard shortcut for reopening a tab because it shouldn't happen often even to be worth remembering.

Don't forget F7 when hovering over a verse to do a quick text comparison. That's one of the most useful keyboard-only features IMO.

I think this is the only one I know by heart. Last time I closed a tab involuntarily I thought it would be helpful to know the keyboard shortcut... I went to the history tool instead to get it back.

It is a frustrating situation. Thought for awhile it was me clicking he 'X' on accident. But I see what Mark is saying. The area is too large.

Thanks for the reminder. I checked the manual and it wasn't there but I didn't check help.

I think I might be using that often. Very useful!

This is awesome!

Btw, Mac users might need to do a fn-F7.
