When I search for example "Ignatius" these are the only two resources that come up on my android. In order to access the upgrade volumes I have to search for each resource separately:

i.e.

1] Hahn, S., & Mitch, C. (2010). Genesis: With Introduction, Commentary, and Notes. (Revised Standard Version and Second Catholic Edition, Eds.) (p. 3). San Francisco: Ignatius Press.

[1] Hahn, S., & Mitch, C. (2012). Exodus: With Introduction, Commentary, and Notes (Second Catholic Edition, p. 3). San Francisco: Ignatius Press.

[1] Hahn, S., & Mitch, C. (2013). Daniel: With Introduction, Commentary, and Notes (Second Catholic Edition, p. 3). San Francisco: Ignatius Press.

[1] Hahn, S., & Mitch, C. (2014). Job: With Introduction, Commentary, and Notes (Second Catholic Edition, p. 3). San Francisco: Ignatius Press.

[1] Hahn, S., & Mitch, C. (2012). Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and the Song of Solomon: With Introduction, Commentary, and Notes (Second Catholic Edition, p. 3). San Francisco: Ignatius Press.

Is this how all multi volume commentary and upgrade volumes are handled? I like to have multiple commentaries linked but that is unreasonable if I have to link hundreds when it should only be a dozen. They should be condensed and put in to one resource for every series. This takes away a lot from the accessibility of the product. I bought my library specifically to be used on the mobile platform. I very rarely use the laptop anymore

If you search under “title” for ”commentary and notes” does this bring up all the commentaries for this series?

You seemingly have a question in your title which you didn't ask in the body of your post. Yes, "multi-volume commentaries" are available (and visible) within the app. I am not an android user and don't have any help. It may be that you need to rebuild your library index, but I dont know if that is possible for you.

As mentioned in the other thread, entering "Ignatius Study Bible" in the search will pull up all the volumes.  You may want to look at Graham's reply there also.  Even though scrolling across different volumes is not currently supported on the mobile platform, it has been requested. 

I note that you work primarily on the mobile platform - you can do "split screen" view there and link so resources scroll in sync.  I'm thinking that an intermediate solution would be to open the corresponding commentary in the spilt screen window as you move from one book of the bible to another where there is a supporting commentary to open.

I just checked that functionality in iOS and it works fine with just a few taps.

EDIT:  I forgot to mention that there are some Android training videos here:  https://www.logos.com/training/android

I used the corresponding iOS video on "Using Multiple Resources" to provide some  helpful information.
