Please add the "inside preview" for all resources in collections too. E.g. the newly released collection Biblical Performance Criticism Series doesn't have all books in preview. Martin

One often does not receive a response from Logos - especially on the weekends. I agree completely with you but would expect it to be added gradually.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

Martin, that's planned, but we don't have an ETA yet. It's a little more complicated based on the way that collection pages are constructed.

Phil, another thing that's really needed is a way to go from the collection product page to the individual resources' product pages. We can go the other way, from resource to collection, via the "also included in" at the top right, but we can't go from collection to resource. This makes it a real pain to e g try to research whether it's nevertheless worth it to buy the whole collection when one only really wants 40% of the books. Or to try to add a couple of individual books from a collection to a wish list. Or to see the previews and reviews on the individual pages. I've wasted enormous amounts of time having to search for books I should have been able to get to from the collection page.

Martin, I know that you know this (from here ), but for others visiting this thread: the current workaround is to open a link within Logos 5 to the not-owned resource, which will open a preview tab. Such a link may come from another resource or a Reading List, may often be guessed or one just ask about it in the forum. Then one just needs to put it into the command bar (or anyplace else, such as a note, a PB or a Reading List...) , thus command logosres:nicnt66ro  will open a preview to Moo's NICNT commentary on Romans, which has no real preview in the series. Obviously this is no real help for those who are surfing the website, but it helps a lot to check out the resources buried in collections.
