I agree this design choice is frustrating as translator who simultaneously uses many tabs.  Despite being able re-open tabs it's still frustrating.  I would really appreciate a toggle option to allow me to turn off the X in inactive tabs, that way this will not affect those who want to retain this design feature but would relieve frustration for those of us who really do!

Welcome to the forums Chris and Angie. You make a great suggestion. I would love to be able to turn toggle inactive tabs on and off.

As one who started in Logos 2.0 Beta, and now over $10K, here’s my two shekels.

It’s not Logos’ fault I like to have 50+ tabs open. On a 13” MBP icons are very small, accidental closures too often.
IF at all possible, migrate to a larger screen, and / or figure out how to do “layers.”
I now use a 27” iMac at home, where in both Mac Catalina & Win10 [via VMWare Fusion 11.5] it is possible to snap windows to half screen, appearing to have 2 monitors [w/ Mac Magnet]. I can have Logos on left, MSWord on right. Or Logos in both halves, just like two monitors. I’ve learned to save layouts with different names for 27" or 13”, as they do appear differently.
Instead of having all windows on one layer, Alt-Tab or Cmd-Tab to different layers. They can’t be read all at same time, so figure out which ones go ‘behind,’ or to a different layer.

I link Bibles to B, Concordances to C (Strong’s, BrillDAG, DBL etc), Dictionaries to D, Encyclopedia to E, Auxilary info to A, Duplicated Bibles to F. Duplicate a Bible to other screen half, send links to that so the Bible being studied stays put.
As pointed out in recent Logos webinar, another solution is 2 (or more) monitors.

I hope this may help those who really want to know and walk with The Most High Eternal One (Amos 3:3), and YHWH in The Flesh – His son Jesus Christ Yeshua ha Meshiach. Information must become Transformation or we have big head / little heart. We must keep moving from milk to full maturity (He6:1,2; Ep4:13b; Jn4:34).

Blessings, and Shalom!

An option that lets me reduce the number of times I accidentally close a tab is a good option in my book.

Bumping this thread after way too many times of having to press CTRL-SHIFT-T today.

Any chance of seeing any improvement with this anytime soon?

You could post to the Logos 9 Wishlist thread.

The litany of problems with "tabs" behavior and appearance goes back to the release of L8:

Phil Gons said they were considering correcting / improving it, but I've not seen any evidence of actual changes since then.

It's super-frustrating.

Add me to the list of users who experiences frequent and unintended tab closings. As previously suggested, perhaps the right-click closure option could be maintained while either the closing "x" could be removed, or disabled through settings.

I still agree. The shortcut, mentioned above, is still the only fix.

I wondered what the issue was. My L7 tabs didn't seem to be a problem.

Change in the size of tabs and the spacing of information on them ... essentially to meet the needs of those who keep many tabs open.

Is there a UserVoice suggestion for this feature improvement somewhere? My understanding is that FaithLife pays attention to the vote counts of UserVoice feature requests.

15 Votes => Fix too-easy-tab-close

13 Votes => Make "reopen closed tab" an option (dreaming of Close Tab adding location to Tools => History)

Also found 10 Votes => Mac version: it would be great to have the tabs function as they do in Safari browser, whereby closing the tab is an 'x' within the tab. that could be marked completed.

Note this is available on the tab menu and as a key shortcut
