How to Duplicate a Panel

man at desk uses Logos Bible Software on laptop

A Logos user asked this question:

I’ve discovered several methods for duplicating a panel such as a keystroke, the panel menu, and right clicking on a tab. With all of these methods, however, I still have to drag the duplicated panel to my desired location on the screen. Is there a way to duplicate a panel so that the new panel opens exactly where I want it?

A great question from a user who is really exploring the software! Basically what he’s saying is that all of the methods of duplicating a panel open the new panel right next to the existing one. Then he has to drag the new panel to where he wants. In essence, he wants to simplify the two-step process to one step. And he can with a power user trick!
