You suggested trying to break Cloud Resources. Too tempting!

Issue #1

I opened a power lookup using a TDNT datatype. It gave three results (TDNT, Abridged TDNT and ESL). With the power lookup still open, I removed TDNT and Abridged TDNT from my library.

Result: All three resources were removed from Power Lookup.

Expected result: The ESL result would have remained.

(Re-running Power Lookup then displayed DBL and ESL. I've no idea why DBL didn't display the first time. I'll look into that and report separately.)

Issue #2

I then also removed ESL and DBL from the library, and clicked on a TNDT reference.

Result: Power Lookup reported that "No resources in your library contain this reference".)

Expected result: A 'web preview' window would open to one of the resources I haven't downloaded.

Issue #3

If Issue #2 is too hard to fix, there's still a problem. Because Power Lookup reported that "No resources in your library contain this reference".) But…

Result: Power Lookup told me I could purchase a new resource.

Expected result: Power Lookup would tell me that I have undownloaded resources that (perhaps) could have opened this result.

Thanks, Mark, this is exactly the kind of thing we are looking for. 

Issue #1 perhaps isn't optimal, but I don't think it's unreasonable to require reopening the panel before changes correctly take effect. 

Issue #2-3 I absolutely agree that we shouldn't prompt you to purchase something when you might already own an appropriate resource. We'll work on a solution.
