This has been discussed before (http://community.logos.com/forums/t/43437.aspx) but that forum is now locked so I wanted to flag it againSmile

If I have the library open in a floating window and then close it and if my main Logos display is set to the homepage then the main display flips over to my last open layout.

This is - in my opinion - strange behaviour. I know a case has been raised but would appreciate an update as to whether this is going to be changed.

Thanks, Graham

Mine switched to the las opened layout when I opened the Library window. This action happens for almost any window.

Interesting - maybe its a Mac / Windows difference?

This happens if you have any floating window up and then switch back to the main Logos display from it in any way (don't need to close it, Alt+Tab will do; in Windows, that is).

I've never considered this a bug, because in my mind the Home page is a very ephemeral thing anyway and it's mutually exclusive with all other Logos tabs (i.e., you can't dock it or float it or keep it in your layout with other things). It comes down like a window shade over the main Logos display and then rolls back up again whenever you do pretty much anything (choose a menu command, for example).

I have no need for the Home page to hang around long term, so this behavior does not bother me. I would actually expect that as soon as you view any other tab, whether it's docked into the main Logos display or floating, the Home page would be dismissed. So the weirdness to me is that the Home page stays up when you click on the Library icon or press Ctrl+L or Alt+Tab to bring the floating Library window to the top. That's grounds for dismissal (of the Home page) if you ask me.
