On Logos 9 for Mac, I'm unable to rename or delate layouts as I could in Logos 8. When I ctrl-click on any layout, the pop-up menu briefly appears but then vanishes before I can choose rename or delete. Is anyone else having this problem?

Greetings RHC

I have noticed this problem with a number of apps on MacOS 10. It does not seem to be a problem with the Beta MacOS 11.

If Faithlife don't have a cure you may find that the problem evaporates when the stable OS is issured.

Thanks for the response. Right-click seems to work fine for me everywhere else in Logos and in other apps. It's only with the "saved layouts", "quickstart layouts", and "home page layouts" that the pop-up menu disappears when I right-click.

If this is what you are referring to, I'm not seeing a problem with it

For me Graham 

It is not the actual menu that is the (intermittent) problem.

It is when I click on 'Rename' and the target flashes and reverts to its former state.

I can ctrl-click on the layouts in the right column without any problem, but not with the layouts in the left column. For the layouts in the left column, if I ctrl-click on the layout, the pop-up menu briefly appears but automatically opens the layout instead of letting me choose to rename it, delete it, etc.

By layouts in the left column, I mean those listed under the headings "saved layouts", "quickstart layouts", and "home page layouts".

If I right-click and click "Rename" three times, it will allow me to rename on the third try...every time. Weird.

A man of infinite patience. It works! Hmm

Thanks to both of you for the feedback.

I can repro this bug, too, and have put in a bug report on it.

Good catch on noting that it works on the 3rd try.  It made me laugh.
