It would be nice to be able to make custom Dropdown tabs for the bookmark bar:

1. Bibles (Favorite on top, but other Bible versions in the list -- just Bibles)

2. Study Guides (Favorite on top, but other Bible study guides and Bible note collections in this list -- just Bible study guides)

3. Pronunciation Tools (Favorite on top, but other pronunciation tools in this list)

Yes, we can put the books in the bookmark bar.  And that's what I've been doing so far, but with all my Bible versions, it gets cluttered.  Then add all my Bible guides, and its more cluttered.  And then add other quick reference resources and it cluttered even more.

Put simply, I would like to be able to customize my bookmark bar that goes across the top of my screen to group together quick resources of a similar type.

I assume you are talking about the Shortcuts Bar. Good news! In Logos 9, you can make folders:

If you haven't upgraded yet, you need to do so to get this feature (or wait for the free version to come available in early 2021).

Yes, thank you very much for point that out. Cool

I have now purchased and installed Logos 9.  I've been able to create a folder, but I can't seem to be able to add any additional works to the folder.  I tried checking the "How to modify shortcuts" tutorial, but it wasn't helpful.  It only showed that it can be done and how to do the first one, but not how to add more to that folder.

So how does one add to a shortcut folder (like you have illustrated above)?

You drag the shortcut to the shortcut bar, then right-click on it to edit its properties. There you can input the name of a new or existing folder:

Thanks.  It wasn't doing that at first.  When I was first trying it out, it would create duplicate folders.  So for example, if my first "Bible" was in a Bible folder, when editing the second shortcut for the "Bible" folder, it would create a second Bible folder.

Now, however, when I type the same name "Bible" in the folder section, it goes in just fine.  I guess Logos had to figure out what I was doing before it would let me put my Bibles together in the same folder.  After a couple of tries, its going in just fine now.
