I have created a custom collection for the NT commentaries I prefer to use while studying. I have recently tried (again) using parallel resources and R/L arrows to move between them rather than having a copy of each open and I consistently run into the same problem. When I first open my layout and start using my commentaries, R/L arrows will cycle through all of my commentaries in my library for a given verse, even though I set up the layout with a much more limited parallel resource collection checked. Once I click on the parallel resource button and Logos gets around to showing the drop down, the parallel resource collection is checked and after that it functions as expected/intended. But it will not do that until I go to that parallel resource drop town the first time. 

It seems to me that this is a bug, that the software should recognize that a book is in a parallel resource collection without me having to tell it every time I open Logos to study. This has been a reminder on why I quit using parallel resource collections before and went to having lots of tabs. :-/ I don't use L5 on Windows so I cannot say whether the problem is unique to L5M or happens on both platforms. 

OSX 10.7.5; Logos 5.0b SR-2 (5.02.0743)

(update) - apparently Logos does not even always remember the parallel resource collection after clicking the drop down, I just had to redo the drop down/reminder even though I had just done it a few minutes ago. I think it is back to tabs for me until this gets fixed.

See this thread ... quite long ago ... since Logos 4 Sad

Actual Logos 5 remembers the Parallel Resources Set that you have previously selected; you can see the Tick on the PRS when you click the PRS button.

The issue seems to be ... you have the click the PRS button once ... for Logos 5 to use the previously selected PRS in a new Layout or new Session.  If you did not click the PRS button and use the L/R key it will always rotate around "All Parallel Resources" Sad

I got so used to it, to click the PRS button once, until you mentioned it.

There is currently an active case for this issue. I have added a link to this thread to that case.

This should be fixed in 5.2 Beta 1 and thus in a future Stable release.
