Not a question so much as an observation.

I'm reading the apostolic fathers here.  Irenaeus.  I want help on a passage, so I click on the cited by option in the menu.  I get plenty of results.  

I get a heading in bold and an abbreviated title in pale gray.  It would be helpful if when I hover over the resource, it would show the name of the resource instead of having to open it up to see what it is.

You can provide, or change, the Abbreviated (=Short) title to something you can understand.

thanks, Dave

I've done that a lot already for other things.  This would be another big project.  I haven't used the cited by tool much yet.  That would be more for apocrypha, extra Biblical books, but thank you for reminding me.  I had a very large amount of hits last time.  I'll have to be patient and work through them I guess.

But this is a program that is designed to save people time.  I put authors' and series' names to all my commentaries before Logos did.  I'm glad they did.  This is just stuff they need to work on before, I think, worrying about more new teatures.

Yes, bit by bit. Logos thought that DCBLSDVIIV was meaningful so I changed it to "Dict Literature & Doctrine"  (part of the long Title, and omitting "Volumes 1-4")!!

Cited By has been around for a long time, but I don't use it often. So I work around most of their Short Titles or the horrible acronyms that are generated in their absence.

You may already know this, but if you sort your Library by short titles, you can group all the resources that don't have them. I recently combined that with filtering for volumes I'm Reading using that filter facet in order to be able to quickly add useful short titles to hundreds of resources--the resources I am most likely to actually open/use, since I've opened them at least once before.

wow, I didn't understand that at all.  First, I don't see how to sort my library by short titles.  And the rest might make sense if I perhaps could sort my library by short titles.

Is this, perchance, the missing ingredient?
