I am not sure where a fella' has to go to make his requests known, but I figured this would be as good a place as any to begin. Let me say first, that I love Logos. There has never been a better Bible study tool available for pastors, and I am a die hard fan. That being said, there are a couple of minor annoyances that would make life just that much easier if they were addressed:

1. Passage Guide Link sets. How hard would it be to provide an option to do Passage Guides without the Link Sets being turned on. I always have to go and manually turn them off after I do a Passage Guide. Since I never use them, it would be nice to have the option of disabling them so that my Passage Guide starts out the way I want it.

2. History drop down menus: When I have gone through several cross-reference Scriptures, I like to get back to the original passage I was working on. In order to go back to it, I either have to type the reference for the passage or repeatedly hit the back button. Why can't I have a drop down menu when I click and hold the back button, that would let me select one of my previous references or go back to my original passage? I know that there are workarounds, but I am not really interested in a workaround as much as I would LOVE to have that history drop down menu.

Thanks for taking the time to read this. If it is posted in the wrong place, could somebody let me know?

In His Service,

Jimmy

For clarification: You can run the passage guide from any layout you would like. If you don't have link sets turned on, there won't be any. I assume you are running the passage guide from the "go" box, right?

As for the history, I am surprised to find that you are right. On the iOS app, you CAN hold down the back button and pull up history. Good suggestion that should be implemented right away. Smile

Thanks for the warm welcome.

Yes. I run the Passage Guide from the "Go" box. It ALWAYS comes up with link sets turned on - even if I had them turned off when I went to the "Go" box. The default is what I would like to be able to change.

Should I go post this over in the other section as well?

When you run a guide from the "go" box, it creates a new layout, and yes, it does always create the link sets. If you run the passage guide from an existing layout, you can avoid the hassle.

Awesome! I will post it over there. The request is for the ability to default to link sets being turned off from the "Go" box. I don't start my Bible studies from existing Passage Guides, I start from the opening screen. It's nice to know I can avoid the hassle, but it is just as much of a hassle if not more, to always try to have an existing Passage Guide available in order to avoid Link Sets.

I understand your suggestion, and I think it has merit. Smile

Personally, I rarely use the "go" box. I have layouts that I like and I use those. I don't need to reuse existing passage guides… I simply create a new passage guide … (just not from the "go" box).
