I have just played with this function a little and it works fine, click and drag- but the buttons all look a like, it would be nice to choose a buttons appearance , or have a menu of pre-designed buttons to use- just a suggestion.

This has been voiced before. Some want text along with the shortcut. I like the selectable Icon idea. If you are creating a shortcut to a resource outside of Logos (e.g. excel) you can use Windows to change the icon of a shortcut that you can then add tot he the shortcut menu.

An oft repeated request that has so far been met with "no".

Keep squeeking Whyndell.

Hmm Sarcasm is my love language. Obviously I love you.

Agree. Would be nice to have something differentiating the icons. An option for icons with editable text would be better than no option at all.

That was one of my fav things (many) about V3...  Sure seems like V4 is far less customizable than V3.  I do hope that will change.

I agree Whyndell! Many books have similar covers and are hard to distinguish because they are so small (for example BHS/WHM 4.2 and NA27) and books without a cover image (syntax resources) have the same button.

I miss the script that I was running in LDLS 3 that let me have custom pull down style menus with book links. I had one for English Bibles and one for my Hebrew and Greek resources

I would like to offer my interest....

This would be a great idea.  ALSO, I would love the ability to assign a "Hot Key" the shortcuts.  Being someone who tries to infrequently use his mouse, a hot-key combination like they had in v.3 would be a great addition.

 

Thanks!

John

We're going to improve the shortcuts bar and add support first for showing a label and eventually for custom icons.

Thanks!  Any chance for Hot-Key Associations?

My icons don't look the same - they are the default icon of the particular application ... but note that I said application; all my icons are for features not present in Logos or features that I prefer another style than Logos offers. ... And, no, I don't think that Logos should try to cover everything that I use ... I just want to cut and paste into Logos so that I can use Logos somewhat like a knowledge base. In fact, I would love it if Logos explicitly added a knowledge base feature to link external resources.

That makes me very happy.  I already love L4 but you guys just keep pushing me up one more level.

Now it's good that Logos 4 installs from the web, because all users can benefit from the changes required by the community.logos.com visitors :-)

It may be a bit pie in the sky, but what about...

The ability to make a shortcut that opened up a custom floating window with multiple predefined resources.  I know I can drag a layout into the shortcut menu, but that completely changes everything.  My idea would not change the layout, just add a window.

The way I see it, the more customizable and powerful the shortcuts can be, the better.  Logos 3, Excel, Word, Internet Explorer, etc. all have this functionality, and I rely on it to make work more efficient.

Logos team: keep up the good work.  We know what you guys can do, because we have used Logos 3.  So we can't wait to see what you can do with Logos 4 over the long-term.
