I just watched a few Morris Proctor videos and his example was "Open topic to baptism" in the go box. His example showed layout choices. Mine does not. I have Logos 8 Bronze. Is the layout feature something not available at that level?

I would really like to use it as he showed.

In Logos 8.1 (current version) use open topic study to baptism

Thanks! The video didn't include the word 'study' in it.

That is correct.

This flaw/change ie the need to add the word "study" was just discovered a few days ago.

This is now required due to some change introduced within a recent Logos 8 update.

The video was produced for version 8.0, and then it was realised that specifying a layout for a topic needed to be less ambiguous. open topic to love  was a Guide command (opening a Topic Guide) in Logos 7, whilst the word love in the Logos 7 GO Box would open the Topic layout. When those boxes were combined in Logos 8, it seemed natural to allow open topic to love to open the Topic layout. But it didn't work properly, so the command open topic study to love now opens the Topic Study layout, and open topic to love remains a Guide command.
