Logos, please allow us to file our "DOCUMENTS" into personally organized "FOLDERS." I have hundreds of items in my "documents" and want to be able to organize them.

Brian, you can already file your documents into personally organized "Folders." It utilizes the "Favorites" option found under "tools." Open "Favorites" and start adding "folders" as you would in a file cabinet, then you arrange you documents logically however you desire. I have set up a complete system for filing my Bible studies under each Bible book, chapter and sometimes even to the verse level. Create the folder with a name (Genesis) then create a new folder within that folder for each chapter. When you have a document (note file, sentence diagram, search, word list, etc.) you can left click/hold and drag and drop to the appropriate chapter folder. You can also do this with general topics, i.e., adoption, grace...it does take quite a bit of time to set it up, but it will be worth it in the end.

This was something that was suggested back when L4 first came out. Since then the ability to sort documents by type in expandable and collapsible sections is a significant improvement. You may or may not be aware that when sorted by document type you can expand one section and then sort those documents (e.g. notes) by date or name. To do this:

1. Open the documents pane

2. Sort by type

3. Collapse all sections (right click on a document type and select collapse)

4. Expand one of the section (e.g. notes)

5. Press and hold the Shift key and click on either the name or date column label

The sorting system using favorites is effective but unless you have a very detailed system for filing documents the method I described above should suffice
