  • Added support for all guide sections available for each key type. 

This was super exciting to me, and I'm thankful for the many sections that got added! The statement, however, doesn't seem entirely accurate.

I don't mind that the Bookstore section isn't included in a reference Workflow, but Apparatuses and Collections are significant absences. BTW I didn't check any of the other key types.

Might also add:

Release Notes:
Bug Fixes for Mac

  • Resources
    • Fixed a bug that caused the Information menu item to remain selected in the resource panel menu after being turned off. Thread, Thread
  • it only occurred after returning via the Done button
  • the same thread is quoted twice
  • that thread would indicate that it was not a Mac issue (it definitely was a Windows issue).

Hi Dave,

I've edited the notes, and you are right this was an Windows only bug. I'm sorry for the confusion, I was battaling a cold and copied the wrong heading into the notes.

Hi Reuben,

If you look in the Guides Menu, Collections and Bookstore are not available as single guide sections so they are not included. In the case of Apparatuses this section duplicates information found in Textual Varients section, you can find the same information in the Textual Varients, so that is why it was left out.

I see. I was checking against the sections that I could add to a passage guide. Why are Collections not available as a single section guide? This feels like a bit of a glaring omission...

I did find this later and prefer the behavior within the Textual Variants section!

Most other sections make sense as something you would want to pick your preferred settings and run it that way by default every time. It seems unlikely that you are going to have a single collection that you would want to use as a default for any time you want to use the Collection section If you want to have a single-section guide for a specific collection, then it's easy enough to create that guide yourself.

I lost this argument, too. I would have preferred that Logos let us decide if it was useful to us ... After all the Verbum Passage Guide has three preset Collection Sections that the FL "they" have not seen fit to make automatically available. I believe they should be ...

Ok, ok. But that is NOT unlikely in the WF editor! I want to display a specific (non-commentary; though that's even more important) collection in a WorkFlow. I can concede to the logic of not including it in the single guide section selection, but that doesn't apply to WFs.
