Briefly: I have my Bibles in the new folder option (cleverly labeled "Bibles"). Which I click on the ESV, it opens in the right pane. I drag it to the left, close it...still opens in right pane.

I've searched and searched, and I can't find it: how do I pick the pane in which a resource opens? (Can't just drag from folder onto desktop, either.)

Win 10 desktop pc, Logos 9.

You can't specify the window. Drag-and-drop, saved layouts, and send searches here, etc.  are your only control mechanisms.

Thanks, MJ; I wondered if it'd be you!

As I mentioned, you can't drag and drop from the folder. Push the button and the Bible opens.

There should be a way to do this. It should open from the last-used pane, or something. Everything can't be a layout.

Booya!

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

On a more serious note, the new folders on the shortcut menu are a magnificent upgrade. But the ability to drag from a folder to a particular place in the window (like you can most every place else) is important.

FL, consider this an official request for this ability.

I'm not the expert, but at least I hope no one's implying resource placement is random ... they do follow rules. And yes, drag/drop would be good.

But I designed my layout to take advantage of the rules, so that, for the most part, the 'landing zones' are planned, to avoid surprises, and all nice and neat.

I make heavy use of Bible collections as parallel resources so I always open in the same panel. This creates a different set of limitations - but they happen to work for me.
