I want to open my ESV ... so I type ESV into the command box ... and the 'default' option are the study bible notes ... even though there is a resource with an exact match to the name, and a much higher priority in the library (#2, behind NIV11).

Typing a scripture reference also gives results that whilst for some may be the starter, for me I want the passage not the layout.

Thanks.

It doesn't alleviate your problem Martin but I keep a shortcut to my most used translations on the bar and start from there.

You can't prioritise the command box. But as you use the command box, your last used commands will move to the top.

So, if you choose "English Standard Version", the next time you type "ESV" into the box, "English Standard Version" will be at the top.

Similarly, if you select "Go to John 3:2 in preferred Bible", then next time you type in a Bible version, "Go to…" will be at the top.

Thanks Mike

I used to do that but I have removed all the icons so as to avoid the UI issues by having a narrow screen, (All the buttons that you normally see disappear ... but they have no alternative in the menu system!).I think I will put the ESV back :-)

Thanks Mark ... that is useful to know ... if not exactly intuitive. It is like the new guides that should top that ... but do not always seem to do so ... even as a Mac user I like to make clear changes and save them ... auto-configure really does not work in every case.

I've been begging for an upgrade to the shortcut bar for at least six years, to no avail. Multiple UserVoice requests, etc....this is another example of why.

But that's another thread, and I don't want to hijack this one.

My thanks to the various MVPs. Without them Logos would have died early. They were the only real help available.
