Question re Streamlining Open Files:

This folder contains all kinds of files e.g. notes; sentence diagrams; clippings; handouts;

visual filters; to name but a few. The problem is that when the number of files greatly

increases it becomes difficult & time consuming to find them. Part of the difficulty is

that when you open & close a file it then takes its place at the top of the list. After a

while with usage of files they become jumbled up & that’s where things need to be

streamlined. I would suggest that the file menu should contain separate folders for notes;

sentence diagrams; clippings; handouts etc. Don’t know if that makes sense but would

like your comments on the suggestion.

Ron, this has been asked for a number of times. One thing you can do until Logos addresses this issue is to type 'Notes' in the find bar (if you are looking for a note file) and you will see only your note files in the menu.

There is a user voice suggestion for this: http://logos.uservoice.com/forums/42823-logos-bible-software-4/suggestions/509845-organize-files-popup-by-file-type-alphabet-and-re?ref=title

You could spend a vote or two to bump it up in priority.

Are you asking us as  Logos employee (I see the icon under your name)?

If so, yes this would be very, very helpful. So just mozy over to Bob's office and tell him you have a great idea for making Logos4 even better!

This is a bit stream of conscious, but...

Under "Open", there would be pre-created submenus for each "file" type (e.g. Clippings, Handouts, etc.). Then, like in a web browser where you can organize bookmarks, you could create your own folders under those submenus to organize items. I can see some folks not wanting those pre-created submenus (/ folders), so maybe they could exist but be functionally identical to folders we create on our own. That's helpful for new users but allows power users to make it however they want it.

Further, I'd add another column named "Recent" that behaves much like "Open" does now. That gives you ready access to files that you've touched lately, in most-recently used order.

My $.02 ...

Donnie
