I think I mentioned this idea once before, but since I keep running into the need for it I want to make the suggestion again.

Identify the current layout. This can be done in two ways.

  • Put the name of the current layout at the top of the screen - I suggest right after the Logos 4 window title.
  • When I open Layouts, if the current layout was invoked using a named layout, highlight that layout name.

Why?

Suppose I have a number of layouts for different types of studies as well as different subjects/topics I'm working on. Or imagine that I'm playing around with layouts and want to update one of my previously named layouts. Often I don't remember the name of the last layout I selected (that I now want to update) because I was focused on my study, got distracted or just had a "senior moment."  Besides all this it just seems naturally logical to indicate the name of the current layout somewhere if it was invoked through selecting a named layout.

Have a great day,
jmac

I would add to this an option to "sync" the layout so that while you make changes the layout is being updated. I always forget to updated it and sometimes L4 will shut down on me and doesn't pick up from where I last left off.

+1

Of course, you could always put it up in "all our ideas," and then scan through 40,000 possible combinations to find the idea so you can vote on it... :-) Just doing +1 here seems a lot easier.
