If I click on the "New Tab" (+) then I am presented with what appears to be a random collection of documents and resources. I there a logic that I am missing? They don't seem to be ordered alphabetically or by type or by recently accessed.

I think I read somewhere that there is, but I don't remember where I saw that or what the logic was.

I've been wondering this also. It seems like it should open up to most used resources or to a search in the library to open a resource.

MJ. Smith:

Thanks MJ. What you describe as "a mixture of resources and tools that have been recently used appear on the left" is so random that I find myself only using the right side that groups by type and alphabetizes

It's a list of items from your history ordered by how often it shows up in your history.

That's SUPER helpful to know it is frequency, not most recent.  THANKS Andrew!

I suspect it is more complex than that as frequency alone does not explain what actually appears for me. Is there, perhaps, a time frame on the history?

If I remember correctly, local history data older than a certain age is purged. It should match up with what shows in the History tool though.

Ah, what I was remembering faintly was not Bradley in the forums, it was Morris in his training manuals:

To the right of the tab on an open panel is a New Tab plus sign. When clicked a variety of items appear, any one of which can be opened in a New Tab simply by clicking it. Please observe these explanations after clicking the plus sign:

■ All New Tabs provide a prioritized list of frequently used resources / documents. (A)
■ Opening New Tab from a resource shows a list of Parallel Resources or those with similar references.
■ Opening New Tab from a non-resource provides shortcuts to Documents / Tools / Guides, or similar elements (History, Cited By, etc.)


Morris Proctor, Logos 6: Training Manual, vol. 1 (Murfreesboro, TN: MP Seminars, 2015), 183.

After clicking the new tab plus sign (+) a list of Parallel Resources not only appears on the right, but a variety of icons displays on the left. These icons represent a combination of recent history and related features.

What would make this feature much more useful to me would be the ability to filter the resources that are presented to my weary eyes by TYPE. perhaps with a drop-down list of major types (Bibles, Commentaries, Bible Dictionaries, etc.).

I cant find the strongs .

Try "right-clicking" on a word.

The "context menu"[?] that appears should have a line in it with that number.

[Having read one of your earlier threads-that you are running Basic] I am hoping that this is not a feature that must be paid for

There are levels of access in Logos that are only seen/available depending on if you have paid for certain  "features."

All the best

J:

One way to do so (even in a free Logos Basic installation) is turning on the Inline Reverse Interlinear - this could look e.g. like this:

 

Make sure the Strong's Numbers are selected from the interlinear - this view maybe resembles what you are used from other bible software or internet sources.
