Hello,

I've recently acquired the Lutheran Study Bible and would like to make it the Commentary that appears in the passage guide window when first opening it. I've made it the highest-priority commentary, and it is the first one *listed* under commentary, but I still have another volume appearing in the window when I first input a new passage. Is there a way I can change this?

Christopher:

What passage are you searching for? If the commentary doesn't cover that citation, or area it very well might be that it would not show up because of that fact.

It's consistent across every passage I've tried. What I want to be my priority commentary is a study Bible, which covers every section of the Scriptures.

Christopher:

So that I can attempt to reproduce what you are experiencing could you tell me in detail all the variables of your search (including where in L4 you are searching, the citation, what books you want to be involved etc.)

Sure. From the Home Page, I type "Psalm 39" (not in the command bar, but in the box beneath), which takes me to the Passage Guide. It opens in a three-pane view (one long pane on the left with the passage guide, and two panes to the right - on the top are some Bibles I have prioritized - ESV, NKJ, Lexham LXX Interlinear, Logos LXX, BHS/WHM 4.2, and on the bottom it opens to the Concordia Self-Study Commentary.) What I want is for that bottom-right pane to open the Lutheran Study Bible on the bottom. That is the work that is highest in priority among commentaries; in fact, it is the third-highest priority in my list, right after LSB 1-Year Lectionary and ESV.

Thanks for your help; let me know if you need any more information.

Regards,

+Christopher

I had an idea while typing the previous message. As an experiment, I removed the Concordia Self-Study Commentary from my priority list altogether and then resubmitted the search. This time, instead of the Concordia Self-Study Commentary, the bottom-right pane had the Apologetics Study Bible. I'm wondering if Logos isn't treating the Lutheran Study Bible as a "commentary"?

I tried this on the Windows version. I noticed the book in question showing up under Commentaries, but would not allow me to prioritize. I spoke with the Q/A lead and she thinks it is a bug so she is filing it. I will as well on the Mac side.

Thanks. Just a quick update: it's still behaving in the same manner in Alpha 20.

I'm not sure when exactly this will be fixed but it is not an issue with Logos but with the way the book was put together. They have to rebuild it in order for it to work properly.

Just curious. I came across this thread and am having the exact same problem only I am trying to set my new ESV study bible notes as the default commentary. Was a solution ever found?

Thanks,

Prioritizing Library resources appears to work in Logos 4 Mac Release Candidate 3:

Wiki page has Library prioritizing information => http://wiki.logos.com/Library

Ya, it works to prioritize the list of commentaries in the passage guide, but I have placed the ESV study notes at the top of the priority list and yet the IVP commentary series opens in the panel beneath my bible panel.  For some reason the ESV Notes aren't being recognized as the default commentary to open when i search. 

Is that making sense?

Thanks,

Chase Replogle

Apologies - not know how to replicate.  In my Passage Guide, clicking on "The ESV Study Bible" in commentary list opens ESV study notes to search.

Curious screen shot - IVP Commentary and ESV Bible show Link Set A on resource icons, but have different verse references (not match Passage Guide search).
