I don't know if this is already in the program, but this would be SUCH a handy feature. I can't tell you how many times I've clicked to a tab, but missed and clicked the X to close the tab.  Then I've got to go to my library, search for the resource, drag the resource back to the pane and then find the spot that I was at.  UGH.  This happens more times than I care to admit.

In web browsers, you can do this with a simple key command (Cmd-Shift-T in Firefox).  Man, this would be so handy to have in Logos.

If this is already a feature...please someone let me know what the keystroke command is! Thanks so much.

Couldn't you do this from the history tool?

Perhaps you can, but I don't know how.  It seems that a quick keystroke to reopen the tab would be useful.  I know there is a quick keystroke to close tabs...so why not make a quick key-stroke to re-open an accidentally closed tab?

Just a suggestion that I would find incredibly helpful.

I was very surprised when I tried it some months ago to find that if you go to Tools>History you can recover pretty much anything. You can also drag the History tab to your shortcut bar which would be pretty much as quick as a keyboard shortcut. Personally I don't think a keyboard shortcut is necessary, but do feel free to suggest it - I don't often inadvertently close tabs and reopening them isn't one of my main productivity killers.
