Is there a way to open a resource by its filename, like in Logos 3 in the Go box?

Is there a way to see the filename of a resource when looking at it in Logos 4, like via Properties within Logos 3?

Thanks and Merry Christmas!

Not sure, but if you start typing the name of the book in the command box it ought to come up.

Does not work with most file names for me.

Click on the 'i' in the top right of the pane to see information about the book; the filename is right at the bottom...

Why would you want to open by filename anyway? They're often obscure and not that intuitive...

Sorry, type "open" then the name of the book or author

Thanks Jon, and thanks also for the tip on the "i" - for filename. I had seen it but couldn't remember where it was.

I can see a few reasons for wanting to use the filename - one, it's a good way, if a download occurs, to look in your resources folder, see what filename came down today, and then open it by filename to see what it is. There is no other way to figure out downloads that I am aware of, and I believe I read that over time Logos will update more resources to logos4 format (and just update resources in general).

Also, some of us are seeing some sync weirdness between lbxlls and logos4-extension files, it serves as a way to see what resources are affected.

There are probably other reasons too, IMHO it's always nice to be able to "get down to the metal" if we have to.
