I want to use the Logos desktop program with a Windows 10 tablet. It is easier to read a complicated book and highlight text on a tablet than it is on a regular computer. I have an active stylus that makes it easy to mark up PDF files and highlight text in kindle books and I am hoping to do the same with my many Logos books.

I was disappointed to find that many basic user interface features do not work with touch in Windows. I can easily highlight text with the stylus or my finger and bring up the context menu. But I cannot scroll within the context menu or select commands from the menu.

Is this a limitation of the Windows 10 touch interface or is Logos not designed to work with touch? I hope a full touch interface will be enabled soon in Logos. As Logos is now publishing a vast digital library it important to make the program enable efficient reading and note taking. At the present time reading is easier on an Android tablet or iPad than it is on a Windows tablet, although even those do not have the level of polish of the Kindle app.

Correct. This is a recurring request here in the forums, although I don't know how many users it impacts.
