They are more consistent than Beta 3, especially Copy.

I would only add that Copy: for a Reference should be labelled Copy verse:, as it is for a Selection.

I still do not understand the logic behind the order of the right side.

IMHO it would make more sense to group like items (Guides) together. I would also place the Share icons at the bottom of the menu. Add to Passage List and Add to Canvas should be placed below Take a Note and Community Note. IMO

I agree. I also find it difficult to understand the reasoning behind the order of the items. 

I also wonder why Highlights and Notes are under the heading "Copy".

<Why are the guides separated?>

Philana has already spoken to this, I think in beta 1 thread. The menu provides (at the top) the most recently used APPLICABLE guide to the reference/selection? Others are then listed below. At least I believe that's what she said.

If that is what is intended, that is not the way it is working. The order the menu appears in my screen shot is the order it appears regardless of my usage history.

That description isn't quite right. 

  • The most useful tools are pinned to the top. (This of course depends on context; many of the lesser-used contexts don't have pinned tools.) For now, "most useful" means "as determined by usage data and the intuition of Faithlife designers." In the future, we may add the functionality for users to customize which tools they want pinned to the top.

  • The collapsible Guides group always lists your most-recently-used guide first, then all other guides (built-in, and custom-made) that support the context, in alphabetical order. I agree that it's odd to indent the collapsed items; I'll see if we have time to adjust that before shipping to stable.

Thanks for the explanation Adam.

That would be a nice enhancement.

This has been fixed in 8.9 Beta 1.
