Residual follow-up to thread => The word grace and Strong's numbers

After updating to Logos 4.5b Beta 6, opening Bible Word Study (BWS) showed previous English search word, travail, but could not run BWS.  Screen shot shows story:

Irony: BWS for travail is a bit buggy.  By the way, NASB 95 is my # 7 Bible in priorities while AV 1873 is # 8.

Using Logos 4.5b RC 2, can replicate BWS issue after closing BWS, then opening from Menu (suspect working as designed, albeit design only remembers last word searched while forgetting Biblical resource context).

Also can replicate text display issue when scrolling up in a smallish vertical window (without Table of Contents):

Note: learned pressing command + tab to change programs causes Bible resource display to refresh.

With regard to the scrolling issue: a similar text display issue was noted previously in the forums (http://community.logos.com/forums/t/48487.aspx) and has been reported to development.

With regard to your issue in searching for the word "travail" in BWS, I recommend that you take a look at this section in the wiki: http://wiki.logos.com/Bible_Word_Study#Using_English_words

I believe that should answer your question. The wiki notes that:

 when you type a word in the Word box in English, Logos4 searches for your word in your Preferred Bible
Since the bible which contains "travail" is #8 rather than #1 on your preferred list, it won't be able to find it and you will have to do a right-click selection method instead. Thank you.

Observation: if have AV 1873 Bible open to Ecclesiastes 4:4 then right click on travail, then selection, followed by Bible Word Study (BWS), then BWS opens to travail and chooses AV 1873 for sections: Hebrew Words and Greek Words.  Close BWS.  Open BWS using Guides menu, then travail appears in location bar (not typed in), but since my highest prioritized Bible is ESV, which does not have Travail, cannot rerun BWS.

In contrast, can open Tools => History, then click "travail Bible Word Study" that opens fine with AV 1873 chosen in sections: Hebrew Words and Greek Words.

The current BWS implementation that remembers last search term does not remember corresponding context for last search term.

Personally wish BWS drop down list had an option to include all English words from all translations that can be selected in sections: Hebrew Words and Greek Words.
