In Logos 8, the fully redesigned Home Page gets you into Logos quicker. Customize your launch pad for the ways you use Logos most, so you can launch right into your favorite workflows, reading plans, layouts, and more. 

We've provided information on using the Home Page here:

One thing that I really liked about the old home page and used a lot was the easy access to my reading plan.

In Logos 7 the link for today's reading took me straight to the open Bible in my current workspace at the correct locations.

In Logos 8 it opens a new workspace, I'm sure that this is configurable but how to change this is not immediately obvious to me.

Can anyone help? Please!!!

Each time I launch Logos 8, I have to keep resetting the home page to 'auto' for the columns to fill my screen. It seems to default to 4 columns which is annoying as I want it wider!

My understanding is that they're working on this...

Thanks, Dan. Sorry for the inconvenience, we are working on persisting this setting.

Does anyone know when this will be fixed?

I accept that I can workaround this but wish that I knew about this before I took the plunge because like the Note function, where the changes were highlighted, its something that I use daily.

What is the logic for opening a new workspace?

Can you explain what you mean by "change Bibles"?

Your preferred bible is now set in the library. See the Quick Start Video on Library for further details.

In addition when you click on the menu on the left side you can see all the books downloaded or updated within a certain number of days.

You use to have 3 Bibles to set.  How do you change to set a different Bible?

Go box is completely neutered. Under previous versions entering a verse/ verse range automatically brought up a passage guide. Now all it does in verbum is open the bible to the verse. This is a major step back and will turn my study into a more complicated thing. I have no idea how to fix this. At thing point i really would love to downgrade to 7.

Type the reference or reference range, wait one second and click "Open Passage Guide"

When entering a reference, the box should provide you with a drop down menu of options. In the Layout category you will find "Open Passage to <reference>".

It looks like upgrading to Logos 8 is going to be more painful than I anticipated and I'm starting to regret not waiting longer. I was expecting a more polished Logos 7 and was certainly not expecting to have to watch a Quick Start Video on the Library to find out how to change the preferred Bible. It's beginning to feel like a lot of stuff that was not broken in 7 has been fixed in 8.

Personally I'm not a fan of videos so what I need is a Quick Start guide to what has changed, is there such a document?

This will be fixed in 8.1. For now, you just need to hit the down arrow before hitting enter or clicking Go.

Thanks Phil and everyone who has pointed out how to get the expected results to work just not something I have been use to in the past, this minor slow down of study is not the end of the world just frustrating.
