As much of the concern is taking up valuable screen space, Logos can easily save a little bit of space by using the Logos logo as the home button.

Thanks for the reminder about this.

That same logo could take us to the store and that makes perfect sense for me.

I totally agree that the currently function-less Logos logo should be turned into the Store button, and get rid of the new Shopping cart button which is totally out of place with the rest of the screen elements which are study-related.

Please!

Nonetheless, please note the not-unreasonable requests for user control over where and whether to place the Store tab.

Noted. We're discussing what that could look like. Two possible approaches:

  1. Different collapsing behavior that prioritizes more important items as you run out of space
  2. Ability to customize the toolbar by hiding certain items

If #2, should we do it based on aggregate usage? Anything fewer than x% of users use should be hideable? Everything should be hideable based on individual user preferences? By what principles would we allow hiding the Store button but not the Sync button, the Profile menu, the Close All button, the Home button, or the Logos logo? I can see users in many cases saying they would like to be able to hide these because they never use them. If we do come up with something here, I'd like it to be principled and consistent rather than making a quick reaction to a change that might end up being okay after a few weeks of adjustment.

Thanks for voicing your feedback. We'll keep listening.

Late to the discussion - but I promise you I will NEVER use this button. I have NEVER bought from the Library. Why not just let people edit EVERYTHING on the toolbar? All that button is doing to users like me is frustrating us. I might use it library. I might consider using it on the Home page. But when I go into the layout I prefer for study, I am there to study, NOT shop. You have a section in the default Guides. I'm happy to have it there. Make it useful so that if I search for a word or a passage and you have some great deals on books that would have showed up in my search in that section, I might go buy it real quick since it's very fast to download and install. I could be studying those books within minutes.

I like it. Using a 17" monitor space is not a problem.

But you certainly wouldn't be angry if they had it on by default and allowed users to hide by choice would you?

Allow the Store button to be hidden irrespective of space considerations. It really has no place in the main toolbar.

For reasons unknown to me, Faithlife has merged the above request with a different request, which is to remove the Store button entirely.

As such, I invite you to vote for https://feedback.faithlife.com/boards/logos-desktop-app/posts/allow-us-to-hide-the-new-store-button instead. The new request EMPHASIZES that it is a "Let us hide" request rather than a "Remove" request. Of course, nothing is stopping you from voting for both, but they are meaningfully different.

I have had Logos for more than a dozen years spent thousands of dollars on it.

I have never blogged or contacted you before.  This store button should be in a drop down menu and the main screen one needs to be hide-able.

I like having access to it but I do not like it so in the face.

Thanks

Probably to get the numbers up. However, I think they will implement a "hide" option to please/soothe both sides!

As an addendum to my other, previous arguments: one can justify allowing the hiding of only the Store button because far more users are vocally upset about not being able to banish the Store button from their toolbar than are upset about being unable to hide any other button on it.

I don't like the new button at all and I really want to perma-hide mine.
