Is there a way to preview a public document BEFORE adding it to my Docs? 

It would be nice if I could at least preview it on documents.logos.com, maybe the Docs menu can provide a link to preview the document online. I'd like to be able to see what a Canvas document or a collection contains without having to add it to my docs and then delete it when it's not what I want.

If a document is on documents.logos.com it is also on your desktop installation of Logos! If the web app could provide a preview, it would be better on the desktop app. But I doubt you would be saving any time, if that is your motivation.

I'm referring to Public documents that I haven't downloaded yet. I want to preview them before I decide to download them.

I know. But documents.logos.com is for docs that are Yours i.e. downloaded and available to you, whether on desktop or the web app. You can access public documents on your desktop so it makes sense to preview them where the software can already display them! A download is unavoidable, but the document will "go away" when you close the tab (it will be more involved for docs that don't have their own tab e.g. a Collection).

A preview will only save you opening the doc and deleting it, but you have an extra action to select Preview rather than Add to your docs.
