I like creating PG's for different types of uses, example: My Passage Guide for NT books (MPG-NT Books) or the OT (MPG- OT Books).

What I would like to be able to do is pre-dock certain resources when I create these guides- like this:

MPG- NT Books:

Passage Guide template, pre-dock: Eng bible (s), Grk Bible (s), Bible Dict (s), it would look something like this:

what is the difference between a custom layout and what you are suggesting?

Nothing except when I build a custom PG I would like to dock 'permanently' those other resources when I setup the cutom PG - instead of having to open, the bible and other resources afterwards, they would already be there. Currently you cannot do this- I have tried and when you open the 'PG' they are not there.

Saves time, and helps creat a consistent set of resources already setup in each study, of course the OT setup would carry some additional 'permanent' resources.

I recommend assembling your layout the way you want. Then open the Layouts menu and save the layout. Then any time you want to use the Passage Guide, you can load the layout from the list of saved layouts.

Yes, that works. But you can't load a layout from a right-click context menu from where the PG loads.

So, as an alternative, is there anyway that the docked resources could be implemented using the Favorites tool (one click instead of several)?

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

Faithlife Corp. owes the MVPs free resources for life.

I never use favorites but you can put a shortcut on the logos tool bar that will load the layout with one click.

Create and save the layout.

Drag the layout name from the dropdown to the tool bar

Right click on the icon to customize the way it looks.

In the screen shot below you can see I have my primary study layout shortcut. I chose to label it study and not show and icon, but you can adjust the way you prefer to see it.

I would LIKE THESE TO BE "FIXED" IN PLACE ON A "TEMPLATE" SO REGARDLESS OF WHAT "TYPE" OF GUIDE I CREAQTE- THE ADDITIONAL BOOKS STAY PART OF THE TEMPLATE- without having to save it as a layout.
