Sometimes, or even often, when I click a footnote it will bring up a resource that is in my library. When I click it, I get options for bibliographic entry, but it does not open that resource to the location indicated by the footnote. Is this a feature or a bug? 

I thought that if a resource was in my library, footnotes would always link. Maybe I'm missing a setting?

No. That requires manual tagging by FL. For "Logos edition" resources, the goal is to have them all linked, but that isnt always the case... This is especially true when a resource B was added after resource A.

I have found that the rule is if the resource was produced afterwards, Logos doesn't go back and tag it.  I have found this to happen so many times, I just stopped reporting it.  With this being the biggest selling point of the software, you would think they would scan a book's footnotes and ensure the references are hyperlinked.

No they do... but it may be many, many years. Resources are routinely updated... it just takes awhile to get back to them.

Not being serious, but on the product page, they should show 'Last Updated'. Fair warning.

Thank you, all for the insight. I guess I'm not doing something wrong, anyway. I can find the resources, but tagging is really nice.

Is Faithlife hiring? I could do piecework tagging references!
