When trying to add a file from Windows Explorer to the shortcut bar, Logos does not allow it. The drag/drop icon just shows the "no" symbol. Any ideas?

It is meant for shortcuts to items in Logos only eg. resources, documents, guides, tools.

I saw a video from Morris Proctor where he did this in Logos 4. Is it no longer possible in Logos 5?

Hi Randy

Randy Leinen:

It is possible in L5. I have just tried it successfully with a PDF file and then activated it which launched a PDF viewer containing the document.

What type of file are you trying to add as a shortcut?

The drag-and-drop may fail if you're running Logos 5 elevated ("Run as administrator"). (This is a security feature of Windows, to prevent non-elevated programs communicating with elevated ones.)

Logos 5 was designed to run non-elevated, so we do not recommend running it as an administrator.

Bradley, that's exactly it. This leads me to another question. Is there anything else that will happen negatively as a result of running it as administrator? Or, is there anything negative that will happen if I run it normally, even though I installed it in the c:\logos directory instead of the user directory?

You only get side-effects if you use Admin privilege ("run as Administrator"); a custom install is fine.

Thanks, Graham.

The Logos Help file should be updated to reflect this.
