In the Layouts menu, we have the option of setting up Quickstart Layouts and Home Page layouts

On the home page itself we can add cards to invoke Quickstart Layouts

What I don't understand is how some of the Home Page Layouts fit in with this.

If I have a Bible Reading Plan setup then invoking it will use the Bible Reading Plan Home Page Layout (assuming the workspace is currently blank) but how do we make use of the Topic Study or Passage Study ones (for example)?

I see that we can invoke the Passage Study Layout from the Go box

but the same doesn't seem to apply to Topics.

So I'm a little confused as to how this all comes together in Logos 8.

Can anyone advise / clarify?

Thanks, Graham

open topic study to carnal gives you the layout for the topic "carnal"

The integration of Command and GO boxes left topics (simple word entry in GO box) ambiguous.

So with that integration these are now a combination of "homepage" and "go box" layouts?

That is how I see these. The home page are more basic than the go box. In an attempt to make things simple for some and more detailed for others, they have complicated the situation for most. I don't use them, so it does not impact me, but I think one set of layouts that work from the home page or go box would be easier to understand.

These are explained in the Quickstart videos rather well.

Both for a passage and a topic, FL had to figure out how to get to Home page layouts with the integration. The old GO box always used Home page layouts, and the combined box still does that, with the complication that topics have to be more explicit.

Ah! Thank you. The quickstart video is missing the keyword study.
