 I know this is a judgment call, but I find the new information tool panel layout less helpful then the previous one a month or so ago. The new layout wastes more visual space in a way the previous did not. I do not recall my layout details previously beyond the fact that rearranging and subtracting elements, etc. in this new layout is not giving me the same info in the same amount of space. I think 1) the Translation section is offering more info than the previous version and 2) with the layout including these section headings, more visual space is lost. This makes it more annoying on laptops that have small monitors. 

Anyway, that is one man's opinion.

thank you,

Since this occurs with the 6.5 beta you should post in the Desktop Beta forum to avoid confusion.

An updated Information tool UI was shipped in 6.4: https://wiki.logos.com/Logos_6.4#Information

Dave was just mistaken. He forgot that 6.4 already shipped.

The previous version had the same info but no titles for sections. But they were separated by slight space difference. If a future release did the same thing but made the sections "blocks" (visually by hovering?), then they could be moved around like the new version but save on space. 

just a thought. 

I know this whole program is involved and appreciate the efforts.

I would love to be able to have these adjustable.

I prefer the title headings as I usually keep them all closed which makes a small clean block. I only open a section when I wish to actually read the information. The new format is not visually distracting when I'm not using the tool. I mention this only to illustrate the variety of ways we use Logos and prefer it to work ... I can see your side of the design decision as well.
