There are three bugs (Verbum/Mac) I would like to report.

1. Bring up Theology Guide, type in an entry, and CLOSE all the sections so they come up closed next time. Close Theology Guide. Bring up Theology Guide again and type "Indwelling" and select "The Spirit's Indwelling". The Recommended Reading Section says in gray, "no results". Yet when I click to open the section, I see 3 entries that are in my library that I can click, and two more references that are outside of Logos.

2. Click to open up Systematic Theologies. It says I have 22 entries. It starts by showing 5 of them, with a "more>>" link. I click it, it only shows me 4 more! I have to click it FOUR more times to get just 22 entries! This is not in concert with Logos' statement of making this easier, more efficient to use. If I click "more>>", give me all of them, especially if it's 22 entries and not 2,000! Please increase the limit of new entries displayed here, and anywhere else in the system.

3. Moving on - let's look at the list. It shows a number of duplicates! You click on them, they go to the exact same page and position. Why all the duplicates? See picture below.

Thanks for addressing these issues!

I can reproduce this, and it's recently been reported elsewhere.

I agree that's very annoying.

They're not quite duplicates, and appears only to affect Ryrie. What seems to be happening is that the first link goes to the heading "Chapter 62: The Spirit Indwelling", and the second link goes to the text immediately following the heading.

I imagine the cause is very similar to what Bradley discusses here.

As Mark said, they're not “the exact same page and position” (emphasis added); the position is slightly different, which is why both are shown. The problem is exacerbated by using “Articles” view; it's less obviously a problem in, say, the “By Resource” view. (Which makes me wonder if perhaps we could suppress duplicate TOC entries just in the “Articles” view.)
