Disappointed that the recently downloaded 'Classic Commentaries and Studies on the Pastoral Epistles Upgrade (10 vols)' merely contains the 'Early English History' version of Thomas Hall's commentary.

This means it isn't tagged as a commentary so won't show up in passage guide etc. Also the locator bar lists wrongly almost the whole commentary under the section 'Errata'. And Greek terms are simply replaced by 〈 IN NON-LATIN ALPHABET 〉

I've checked and there is (now? I don't remember seeing it when I bid on community pricing but may have missed it) a warning on the product page to this effect. But it still falls short of what I expect from a Logos commentary. Surely it wouldn't take much more time to have someone go through it and tag it properly?

The collection was only $13 on Community Pricing, but nonetheless I agree. The Early English History bundle is pretty useless for proper study, because of the poor OCR and lack of tagging. That's fair enough for those who choose to buy that (it's product page is pretty clear about what you're buying). But I don't think its volumes should be included in 'proper' Logos packages.

You're right, too, that the warning wasn't there when you pre-ordered. It's been added in later. Here's an archive of the page from 2017: https://web.archive.org/web/20170313053547/https://www.logos.com/product/39084/classic-commentaries-and-studies-on-the-pastoral-epistles-upgrade
