If I click on the "New Tab" (+) then I am presented with what appears to be a random collection of documents and resources. I there a logic that I am missing? They don't seem to be ordered alphabetically or by type or by recently accessed.

I think I read somewhere that there is, but I don't remember where I saw that or what the logic was.

I've been wondering this also. It seems like it should open up to most used resources or to a search in the library to open a resource.

Thanks MJ. What you describe as "a mixture of resources and tools that have been recently used appear on the left" is so random that I find myself only using the right side that groups by type and alphabetizes

It's a list of items from your history ordered by how often it shows up in your history.

That's SUPER helpful to know it is frequency, not most recent.  THANKS Andrew!

I suspect it is more complex than that as frequency alone does not explain what actually appears for me. Is there, perhaps, a time frame on the history?

If I remember correctly, local history data older than a certain age is purged. It should match up with what shows in the History tool though.

Ah, what I was remembering faintly was not Bradley in the forums, it was Morris in his training manuals:

To the right of the tab on an open panel is a New Tab plus sign. When clicked a variety of items appear, any one of which can be opened in a New Tab simply by clicking it. Please observe these explanations after clicking the plus sign:

■ All New Tabs provide a prioritized list of frequently used resources / documents. (A)
■ Opening New Tab from a resource shows a list of Parallel Resources or those with similar references.
■ Opening New Tab from a non-resource provides shortcuts to Documents / Tools / Guides, or similar elements (History, Cited By, etc.)


Morris Proctor, Logos 6: Training Manual, vol. 1 (Murfreesboro, TN: MP Seminars, 2015), 183.

After clicking the new tab plus sign (+) a list of Parallel Resources not only appears on the right, but a variety of icons displays on the left. These icons represent a combination of recent history and related features.
