There are some problems in displaying the Qur'an in different versions in a passage list.

1) The verse number is included.

2) When multiple verses are cited, only the verse numbers (linking to the verse) appear.

3) Look at the bottom of the two middle columns: "Sura 18" shouldn't be there, it's the heading of the following sura. Same tagging error as exists in a number of Bibles.

4) I can't seem to get the two versions of the Quran that I have to both show up, no matter what I do. But I'm also seeing other weird behaviour, so if others [on Mac] can't replicate this, I'll try again after next restart.

Text comparison is also buggy for the Qur'an.

1) The verse numbers are included.
2) The verses don't line up correctly.
3) Surah headings are included, even at the end of previous Surahs.

Yes, because the Pickthall and Shakir translation are both called "The Quran" it's difficult to get Text Comparison to recognize them both when I type them in. The way I've gotten them both open is by opening a new Text Comparison window, and then type in a Surah. It will automatically change the versions from Bible versions to Qur'an versions.

So it wasn't just me then. Seems the issue I reported as a) at 'BUGS': Unhelpful dropdowns was far more serious than I thought.

Creative! Doesn't seem to work on Mac, though.

Or, wait, you said TC. Yes, it works for TC, but not for PL's.

I can replicate and will submit to development.

Thanks, Tommy. Any timeline or status updates on getting this fixed?

These bugs were submitted two years ago, right after the collection came out of Community Pricing and Pre-Pub, and they still haven't been fixed. Will these ever be fixed, or are these texts simply not a priority?

Keep asking about the problem to keep it on the radar.
