When I start to work, 2 Bibles are displayed = ESV and NASB.  I add NIV and KJV.  I finish my work and close LOGOS, I go back to it later.  ESV and NASB are displayed, but NIV and KJV are gone.  I have to pull them up again.  How can I make NIV and KJV open every time I use LOGOS?

thank you

You need a named Layout and a way to save it so it will be restored when you restart Logos.

There are a couple of ways to accomplish this depending on the details of what you'd like to see.

If you always want it set up a particular way as a "place to start from", then:

  1. Set up your layout as you want it.
  2. Save the layout as a named layout.
  3. In program settings, set Logos to open that layout at startup

If you simply want to open to how you left things, then simply set: Program Settings/At Startup open to [Most recent layout - local/any]. If you primarily use a single computer, I suggest using the "local" variant of "most recent layout" so that it doesn't need to go check online for anything (a bit faster to load).

If you use a named layout and wish to come back to its current state (after switching to a different layout, for example), then "update active layout" prior to leaving. This can be done from the layout menu, from the command box, a keyboard shortcut, or (as I've done) a shortcut created by dragging the command to the shortcuts bar.

Sorry, if this is too detailed and confusing. If you don't understand something, please explain exactly how you'd like to operate and someone can help get you there!

In Tools > Program Settings, set "At Startup Open to" to "Most recent layout - local".

It will open up to exactly the way you left Logos when you closed it.

No need to use named layouts. I never bother with them. (I messed around with them a lot to learn how they worked, but for what I do with Logos, which is pretty basic, it's fine to just open the program back to the way I had it when I closed it.)
