I noticed that as I cycle through the commentaries for a particular passage such as Rev 3:10-- when I get to a commentary that does not have this exact passage (it might have Rev 3:7-13 or maybe Rev 4:1-2 because it does not mention 3:10 - these are two ranges that came up) the following commentaries start tracking not with my original Rev 3:10 but with whatever came up previously and eventually they no longer show my focus passage and get completely off track.  This is very frustrating.  I tried this same thing in another bible program I have and even when a commentary did not have the exact passage it always came back to the focus passage when it was available.  This does not happen with L4.  Is there a way to get the commentaries to center on the original passage you put in when you cycle through?

If I was not clear in what i said then just try this for yourself.  Pick a commentary that references Rev 3:10.  Then use the right cursor key and keep cycling through your commentaries to get info on this passage.  Keep going even if a commentary here or there does not reference this passage.  Then go back the other direction (left cursor key) and see if the original commentary you started with still references Rev 3:10.  If you have the same issue I have then as soon as you hit a reference that no longer matches your original passage (rev 3:10) then your commentaries will now show that passage instead of your original one as you continue to cycle through in either direction.

I've found this before and have raised a bug report http://wiki.logos.com/Bug$3a_Inappropriate_passages_are_matched_in_Parallel_Resources

In 4.0c beta it sticks quite well to the original passage throughout the parallel resources but it should not match inappropriate passages like Rev 1-4.

That's good news.  I was hoping that if this was a bug it would be fixed soon.
