As you can see in this thread: https://community.logos.com/forums/p/174594/1008819.aspx#1008819, I was trying to create a new Reading Plan like I do each week for the Torah portions but could not see how to do so. It turns out that I am not seeing the entire Docs menu and that I have to change my Program Scaling to 80% which is not something I can leave set at and be able to work in Logos. 

So the first Bug is that the scaling needs to be fixed so that you can see the entire Docs menu at 100% scaling.

The second Bug is that right-clicking on Docs does nothing for me but works for a Windows user. He suggested I right-click to open Docs in a new window to see if I could see the whole menu. That works for me for the Library menu, but not for Docs (neither from my mouse or keyboard).

I'm running macOS High Sierra 10.13.6 on a MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Early 2015).

Here are some screen shots...

This is 100% Program and Content Scaling with my default layouts:

This is 100% with all layouts closed:

This is 80% Program Scaling:

The docs menu is resizeable (on Windows at least). Drag the lower-right corner.

I suspect you resized your menu when the scaling was small, and it's then remembered the size when the scaling increased.

Maybe some Mac users need to test this.

When I resize the pup-up menu on Win 10 (which btw. only works when Logos is a relatively large window on the screen - you'll see the small triangle on the lower right button or you won't), it always keeps the menu bar which includes the New button and the three-vertical-dots-menu visible. But there may be combinations where this may go wrong on Mac differently than on Windows.

Running Verbum 7 and Logos 8 latest (beta) version on Win 10

Thanks Mark, that worked! I didn't resize the menu when the scaling was small because I don't use Logos with the scaling small, I just changed it to 80% for a few minutes based on another users suggestion to see if that was the issue. But regardless, your solution worked!

UPDATE: Actually, it goes right back each time you click out of Docs and go back in. Each time I hit Docs, the right side is out of view and has to be resized in order to see it.

Running MacOS 10.14.1 on a MacBook Pro my Docs Panel looks somewhat more accommodating. 

Strangely I find...

I can grab the bottom corner and get a change of Cursor to a double arrow and resize in both axis.

I can grab the right hand edge and resize the right hand edge of the panel (no cursor indication that this works)

I can grab the left hand edge and resize the right hand edge of the panel (again no change of cursor to assist)

I too have no reaction to a right click on either the MacBook or the iMac when clicking on the Docs tab.

We do have a case where the Docs panel will remember the size you last used, I think this will solve the issue.
