I very much appreciate the work that went into Michael creating that workflow. I have one suggestion. 

It would be nice if all of the sections of Mike Heiser's workflow contained links to books. Or am I missing something?

It seems that some of them do but, for example, the dictionaries do not.

We'll look into this. Thanks for the feedback!

I'm looking at both the "Examine Top-Tier Bible Dictionaries" and "Examine Second-Tier Bible Dictionaries", and (in the text displayed after clicking "More>>") links to dictionaries appear (I'm on Logos 8.3 beta 1 in Windows). Do these appear for you?

They do, but when you click on the link it just opens to the title page of the book; which is not very useful. It would be nice, if it came back with the "hit" in dictionaries that opened to the location in the book where your passage was referenced. Otherwise you are forced to use the PG, so it seems that this workflow would make you do multiple work on different reports.

Also, following Heiser's workflow, how would you filter your library by "academic monographs?" Or other things is in workflow by which you can create a collection?

Thanks for the clarification. That action isn't currently possible in workflows in this context, but I'll file it as an issue for future consideration.

Isn't that kind of odd behaviour. Telling us which dictionaries we should try looking at, if we have them. Can the software not query the library list and 'SEE' if we have them. Also, Bible Software links should link to the actual entry. That is almost as if I type in Isaiah 65:8 and it opens to Isaiah 1:1 and says 'go find'.
