Pinned resources within link set
I would like to have the option to mark one or more resources as "pinned", avoiding them to follow the others belonging to the same link set. This way, browsing a specific "pinned" Bible version, for example, would cause the other resources belonging to the same set to reposition accordingly, while moving the unpinned ones would not change those marked as "pinned".

I like this idea as well. It would be a great addition as a "settings" choice for Logos users.
You have me vote. This is one of my continuing frustrations with the program and keep it from becoming my primary Bible software program.

This would be great if you are opening multiple commentaries for one section of scripture. When one of the commentaries has a gap of several verses, it doesn't throw off all of your other linked open resources. Olive Tree's iphone application has this ability and I'm surprised it isn't available in Logos for a smoother study experience.
You have my vote - here's how I attempted to articulate a similar idea on the suggestions forum:
It would be nice to be able to have one-way / asymmetrical link sets. What I mean by this is that there would be a set of master panels that have regular links that are symmetrical with one another - if you change the content of any one of the them, the others sync to the new location. That's the current behavior. I would propose the addition of a passive link set that follows the master links, but does not move the master panels if the passive panel(s) is moved.
For example, I have my commentary panel set to be a master link (A) as well as my ESV panel. I set my textual apparatus to be a passive link that's following the master panels (A) links. If I move the ESV or the commentary, everything stays in sync (including the apparatus). However, if I move the apparatus, the master panels do not sync to the new apparatus location.
I find that as I'm working through a passage, I might jump around in other panels, without desiring that I move forward in my commentary and scriptural panels that I'm working through. It's frustrating when I move my apparatus forward to check on something because it might not have a verse that corresponds to where I was in my commentary so I have to then go back to the commentary panel and relocate myself to my original position. My work around is that I don't link my apparatus panel and manually sync it up as needed... this works, but the asymmetrical linking would be spiffy.
An alternative idea is to introduce the concept of pausing a panel's link. So for example, I have a commentary synced to my scriptural passage in another panel. I have a thought while reading through the commentary panel and decide to look back in my scripture panel to confirm some thought I have. I don't want the commentary panel to follow me back; I want to keep my place. So, I pause the ESV panel, scroll back to earlier in the passage, then un-pause the scripture panel, which causes it to snap back to it's original location.
