Two of the three selectable ways to launch the Library appear to be identical. Could Logos change the first selection to mean this:

"Open" = "open library viewed by last opened state"

I don't trust my memory, but IIRC, this is already in the UserVoice poll as a suggestion, with some support.

Is this similar to what you want to see?

My thanks to the various MVPs. Without them Logos would have died early. They were the only real help available.

Not disagreeing, David. But the first 'Open' also jumps to any existing open library (I keep it in my layout). I'd assume the issue would also overlap hotkey-L.

Not for me.

  • "Open" opens the library in a temporary, menu-drop-down-like window which goes away if you just move the mouse to another part of the screen, fortunately no longer losing all previous interaction (such as sort order), at least in current beta - which used to be a source or "arrrgh!" reactions in the past. Annoyingly, "Open" seems to be the default if you just click on library.
  • "Open in a new tab": does what it says
  • "Open in a floating window": same - and typically my preferred option. 

only if you already have an existing library tab or window, "Open" will open these instead of a redundant drop-down, which is a good thing
