As most of us already know MS has launched it's new Windows 10 with the really cool "task View" feature.

I wonder if FL would ever consider implementing this feature for Logos power users who could use the multi-desk top views.

Just a thought

I'm not sure what you mean by asking FL to implement this feature.  

If I hit the task view button (Win+Tab) I can see all the windows open on my (four monitors) desktop which includes multiple L6 windows, a browser, music etc.

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

Are you thinking multiple copies of Logos open on different desk-tops, each able to be separately configured? If so it would be like having different layouts always open and able to be accessed using the desktop feature.

Basically what I'm thinking about is the ability to have multiple layouts open at the same time.

For example. I could have my Romans layout open on multiple screens while having my New Heavens and Earth layout open "underneath" it and have another layout open all at the same time. However, I could only see one layout at a time unless I had the Task View option which would let me see and toggle to any other layout without having to close one layout and then open another.

Well that's different.  

While useful, I already know how hard Logos works my aging laptop as it is. 

However, I can readily see the utility of it.

Logos 6 and Verbum 6 can be open at the same time with a different layout in each application:

Thankful for shortcut icons: one click to change layout.

FYI: my favorite layout for collection and library management has two tabs: Collections & Library that extend across the screen so can see more columns.

Thanks everyone. Verbum is working well. Ideally I wouldn't have to installed my gigs of data twice, but having two layouts open at a time is a huge improvement for me. Thanks again! -Zak

Wow.  I wonder if Noet would work as a third?  I don't believe I have enough horsepower (or storage space) to test it.

I wonder... Would creating a symbolic link between data storage directories enable you to share ONE download of data between the programs?

Risky since application has database files with resource version metadata so an update of a resource in one application is not reflected in other(s).

Possibly; personally use another computer with Logos 6 and Verbum 6, which allows four layouts to be open at the same time (one in each application).
