I sometimes get confused about the terminology for the Toolbar, partially because some of the logical groups do not have a group name in the Logos documentation.

The entire bar shown above is called Toolbar by Logos. It contains the following groups:

  1. Home, Library, Search (no group name)
  2. Documents, Guides, Tools (no group name)
  3. Command Box and Shortcut Bar (no group name not linked in later documentation)
  4. Notification Center the detailed notification is described within the Toolbar documentation but is described as appearing "in the main application toolbar".
  5. Synchonization
  6. Layouts and Help (no group name not linked in later documentation)

Proctor, Morris. Logos 6: Training Manual. Vol. 1. Murfreesboro, TN: MP Seminars, 2015. has the following differences:

Does this leave you a bit confused? Hoping that terminology will be standardized?

I'm surprised Mo didn't use some alliteration like I-toolbar, I-menus, I-Home page ribbons.Big Smile Love Mo's stuff. Does seem odd that they have different terminology.

I don't know if we have "official" documentation, but here's what I would call them:

1. Buttons ("Home button", "Library button", etc.)
2. Menus
3a. Command box
3b. Shortcut bar
4 & 5. Notification icons
6a. Layouts menu
6b. Help menu
