When I have multiple Guides open (e.g. Topic Guide, SSG, Factbook, etc), and they point to Dictionary/Encyclopedia articles, clicking on the article links will reuse the already open Dictionary/Encyclopedia pane. For example:

- Open Topic Guide to Topic A. It contains a link to Article 1 in ISBE. I click on that link to open ISBE window to Article 1.

- Open Topic Guide to Topic B. It contains a link to Article 2 in ISBE. I click on that link. Instead of opening a second ISBE window to Article 2, it replaces the article in the open ISBE window to show Article 2. When I'm done reading Article 2, I lose my place to Article 1. Sometime I inadvertently close the ISBE window and have to retrace my steps to go back to Article 1.

Is there a way to change this behavior, so that Logos opens a new Dictionary/Encyclopedia window with each click of an article link?

I drag and drop when I want a new instance in a particular location.

Likewise. That is the best method that I am aware of. When I forget to do that, the Back arrow button helps.

Ah, I'll have to remember this trick going forward. Thank you!
