Logos Mobile - Layouts

Print Friendly and PDF

You can save any group of tabs as a layout for use later. With saved layouts, you can switch out your open resources for various kinds of study without opening and closing each resource every time you want to switch gears. For example, you can move from one layout, built for personal devotional reading to another built for homily preparation! And with saved layouts, you won’t have to open and organize individual resources.
