An individual needed to set up a simple link between their Bible and the Catechism of the Catholic Church. This simple task is a pain in the rear to put it politely ... and for a reason I had complained about in beta testing.

Problem 1: The Bible Passage Guide selection list does not include "Collections" although that is the only Guide section that provides the right function. So I have to create a guide with an unwanted section - I chose "Commentaries"

Problem 2: With the Commentaries section present, I find there is no "Add" function ... to get it to show, I must provide a reference and run the section that I didn't want in the first place. Now I can add the Collections section i.e. what I wanted in the first place, using Setting to point it to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, link it to my Bible and delete the unwanted Commentary section.

This is such an unnecessary convoluted mess that I consider it a bug, not a suggestion, that Collections be available in the Bible Passage Guides list.

MJ,
I have the option to add a Collections guide section to any Guide keyed to a Bible reference. Can you provide a screenshot of what you are seeing?

You could also "Make a new Guide" in the Guides menu and create a custom guide with just that section. This way you don't have to run and edit a guide. Let me know if this is what you are trying to do?

No add collection ...

You are correct - this does work. I am so used to running single sections from the menu I didn't think of this option.

I think because Collections are so specific this allows you to save multiple guides for different collections. Or you can add more than one collection section to the same guide if you wanted to have more than one.
