I noticed a new feature that I've never run across before, which I had been wanting years ago and had totally forgotten I'd ever wished for. I didn't notice when it was implemented.

In some cases, when you click on a footnote reference mark, and there's a title of a book in that footnote,

and you click on that title, and that book happens to be one that Logos has, you'll see a "resource" link on the reference popup.

If you click on that link, it will open the book in Logos for you (assuming you have it).

Yay!

Here is a thread that asked for this feature, though I am pretty sure I remember this being asked for multiple times before:

I can't remember exactly when that showed up but I think I started seeing it in Logos 8 or 9 (I think Logos 8 though).

I saw this and was like, "Oh wow, yay!" Thanks, Rosie! There's always something more to learn about Logos.

Though I suspect it's subject to the same level of caprice that FL shows in whether or not it will link citations to resources--a quick investigation leans in that direction. After all, for the example you've given, the page number cited should be linked and take you right to that page in the resource. But it's not.

Good point. You've dampered my joy a bit.

I also suspect this will only work on the references tags that they'd already set up to be able to work with this new feature. I know they'd been converting them for some time but there would be millions of them to get to, in all of their back catalogue. So I suspect this will be hit & miss. Still, I'm glad they tried. But you're right, if they were going to do it, they should have taken the page number into account.

I am feeling the joy.  Thanks for that pleasant surprise.

I believe this has worked for me in some cases. But I don't have an example right now.

I like that, a lot! And I haven't seen it, so thanks for telling, Rosie!

Definitely I would like to see it everywhere only a title is available (maybe it's a bad coincidence that your screenshot shows this working on the title when there is a precise location to link to, page 36, which seems not to be a link even though it should be)

EDIT and it works absolutely fine in the example from the thread you linked above:

These coincidences happen a lot.

The link to a specific page in a resource shown in a footnote does sometimes work. Here is an example:

They are also supposed to do this (in regular Logos Research editions) if the title is in FL's catalogue and you own it. The problem is that very frequently they don't.
