Is using a multi-column layout:

How does Logos choose which column to open a resource in?

Is there a way to force Logos to open a resource in a preferred column?

drag-and-drop the title or reference

it is a complex algorithm that I find difficult to predict and even harder to find Eli's description of in the forums. But it is better than its predecessor.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

Thanks for the reply. I should have clarified: to force Logos to open a resource in a preferred column on a mouse click. When opening several commentaries from the Sermon Guide window it's a bit of a nuisance to drag each one where I want it. In my layout I would want all commentaries on a click to open in my middle column, but presently they tend to open in a random (probably not so random but I can't tell) place.

Yep Alan - both you and the rest of the world - there is logic in the way it is done but that logic escapes most folk.  :-)

Hi Alan

I think https://community.logos.com/forums/p/103803/718546.aspx#718546 is Eli's post that MJ was referring to - and I think is still a current description of how it is designed to work.

It would be interesting to know if what you are seeing is consistent with the design decisions Eli outlines.

Read Eli's post and I can't say I see anything that resembles a set pattern. My suggestion: I would prefer a simple method of remembering where the resource was last positioned and for it to open in in the same place again.
