This is to extend this request to implement the concept of a leader which
would allow you to scroll in a linked resource without having the primary linked resource follow it. The purpose was to have a bible and a commentary linked and be able to read in the commentary without having the bible scroll to new verses as you moved in the commentary. The idea was to follow how another bible program operates with the idea of leaders and followers. Moving in a leader resource causes follower resources to sync, but moving in a follower resource does not cause the leader resource to sync without special action (such as a button, or right click action)
Last night I found the perfect example of why the current Logos behaviour does not work and this feature needs to be implemented.
I have my bible linked to Tyndale Old Testament Commentary (TOTC) and was reading in Job 35. The TOTC section on this passage is for the whole of chapter 35, versus 1-16 and is quite long.
As I am reading through Job I get to the second half of chapter 35 and I want to see what the TOTC says for verse 9. The TOTC has synced and I can see the paragraphs for verses 1-8 so I scroll down to see the part on verse 9 and following. This causes my bible to jump back to verse 1. If I then scroll the bible back to verse 9, the TOTC jumps back to verse 1.
Large passages in a commentary make the linked resource feature impossible(?) to use straight up.
The only way it seems that I can see both at the same time is to unlink the two resources or resize my windows when this happens to see both passages at the same time.
This to me is the tool getting in the way of what I want to do.
I think this example shows that the current design is deficient and this should be treated as a bug fix :)
Wouldn't this make it so that the main window would always be behind a floating window if they overlapped? Also, wouldn't the floating window stealing the focus, mean that the main window could never have focus without closing all the floating windows first?
