It happens to me all the time, that I will say "shoot! I was just reading something about this last week! Where the heck was it in my library?" And what I do remember will be too vague to search on without getting 1000s of hits. 

BUT... what if you could use Logos' history as a search limiter? That is, run a search limited to the resources opened in the last day, week, or month. *I* have no idea what all of those resources are, but Logos' history does!

That would be a killer feature for me.

After my useless suggestion to Milkman, L8 really can't be sorted by last accessed?

Though, I agree, a time-based filter would be really handy just to pull up yesterday's work (an example) in a saved icon.

In the detailed library view you can use the Last Accessed field.

But do any of these actually let you search by “last accessed”? Can you select a number of unrelated books in the library and say “search these?” you’d need to make a collection, and then delete it.

I like your idea--or simply having a find bar on the history panel would be helpful.

Here's a workaround: export your History as a PDF document and then use your PDF reader to search it. I just tried this, and it worked great. History seems to go back a month or so (I found my Palm Sunday prep); it was a 45 page document.

Yes. This screencast demonstrates how
