• There are two New Testament Genre Coding's. I'm guessing one should be OT?

• There are also two instances of NT Wright's Christian Origins series.

• Furthermore, while I'm glad for the new popups, so that I can know for sure what resource you're referring to (something that wasn't always clear before) and also see the individual prices:

  • I would still appreciate a link to the product page (and I'm guessing new customers would appreciate it even more).
  • If you scroll along as you read, the line you're hovering over is going to be near the top, which means that you have to scroll down again to be able to read the popup, and then scroll up again to get back to where you were, and then scroll down again the next time you find something interesting, and then scroll up again...
  • It's not that easy to copy a title... (to paste it into the search box in order to get to the product page you didn't provide a link to).

• I can't seem to get the 'dots' to behave correctly. First they were on Diamond no matter what I did. Then when I tried the "New to you" view (Yes) they suddenly moved to Platinum, but only shows for things that are new both to L5 and to me. Those that are new to me but not to L5 lack dots:

• This is even more odd:

'Arrows' for two options:  

'dots' in two columns:  

and again no dot at all for things that are new to me but not to L5.

• It seems that, just as before, it's still impossible to print the chart with the 'dots'.

• Can you please confirm that when we own all but one or two volumes of a large collection, we still get a discount for the volumes we own, even though the collection shows up on the chart as 'not owned'?

I don't see any dots colored in. I am running Chrome, if that matters.

Yes, please.

Another oddity:

When the dots don't show, collapsing and expanding the headings will make them show up. Only it takes a bit of time to do that with all headings...

Btw, I preferred it when different packages had different colours on the dots. Much easier to know what package you're locking at.

• In L4 Bible Word Study: Septuagint Translation was included in OLL and higher. In L5 it requires Platinum. Is that intentional, or just a typo? It seems a bit weird to suddenly move such a feature four whole packages higher.

• Just to put things in one place: there are some resources in this thread that seem to need a "License included. File coming later" footnote.

Answered in Do you lose Septuagint Translation if you upgrade L4 Platinum to L5 Gold?

• The Customize button should be called something else, perhaps Add-ons or Additional offers. When I first saw it, I immediately clicked it, assuming it would customize the prices and/or the 'dots'. I was rather surprised to be taken to another page. And judging from some other forum posts, I am not alone in being confused.

• All 'License included, File coming later' footnotes are missing, as are footnotes for only partially completed resources, and footnotes for texts that substantially differ from the printed versions (like Bibles missing apparatuses). These kinds of errors could get you into some substantial legal troubles, I suspect.

Not fixed after all. I looked in the wrong place. The error is under Data Sets.

• New editions of existing books should have "rev. ed." or something like that after the title.

• There should be a link to the Catholic base package pages. In fact, there are probably several webpages that should have such links.

Button text should be a verbal call to action. Nouns are discouraged.

Having a button on a product page that doesn't have any connection to that product is, IMO, just as confusing, if not more.

The way it was originally designed was to add the selected product to a pre-cart cart (which shows up in the sidebar of the Top Products page), which would require another action (i.e., clicking Add to Cart or Checkout) before it would be added to your real cart. We hope to role this out soon.

Big Smile Is "role" a verb or noun in this instance? Wink

Touché. It's actually an infinitive, which is a verbal noun. :)

It's actually a noun as in a role in a play.  What you wanted was "roll."

Right. Having admitted the mistake, I was commenting on the homophone. But since use in context determines meaning, I'd argue that role was actually functioning as an infinitive, which is a verbal noun.
