How to Open Multiple Factbook Articles

I received an inquiry about the Factbook that reminded me I need to pass along “an oldie but goodie” trick, especially for new Logos users.

First here’s the question:

I really like the Factbook, but when I click a link in the See Also section, I leave the current article and jump to the new one. I then have to click the back arrow to return to my original location. Is there a way to open multiple Factbooks at the same time?

So to see the answer in action, let’s set up the same scenario:Factbook Timothy screenshot

  • Click the Factbook icon on the main Logos toolbar (A)
  • Type Timothy in the subject box (B)
  • Select Timothy (Name) from the drop-down list to generate a report for the person Timothy (C)

  • Click Eunice in the See Also section (D)

  • Notice the Factbook leaves the Timothy article and moves to the Eunice article (E)
  • Click the Back arrow in the upper right of the Factbook to return to the Timothy article (F)

  • Click, hold, and drag the Eunice link to a different place on the screen (G)

  • Notice the Eunice article opens in a separate Factbook panel! (H)

The trick is simple: drag and drop Factbook links to open new Factbook panels!
