I have a "default" layout that I use on all devices (laptop, iMac). Often I will begin study on one device and continue on the other at a later time. I'm sure a lot of people do this.

It's nice to be able to "update active" layout before logging off one device, and then being able, on the next device, to refresh my "default" layout and pick up where I left off. However, the one annoyance is that logos layout dimensions are apparently only recorded in absolute pixels, which is not scalable between devices. If I'm going from my 27" iMac to my 15" Macbook, the logos layout exceeds my viewable space and I have to move the window around so I can downsize it. And, vice versa. 

If the top/left and width/height were recorded in relative units, such as in percentages relative to screen size, then it would be sized perfectly when moving to another device.

This is an example of why I hate FL's use of the term "layout." 

You should be able to have different layouts with the same "project" (resources and tabs opened).

Every time you write this Alabama, I think to myself...

You're my man!

How to get logs and post them. (now tagging post-apocalyptic fiction as current affairs)

This is a good suggestion.
