When I put a passage (e.g. Mark 8) to the command box, I  normally expect that it opens the Passage Study Layout.

It actually shows a list of choices but as I usually am impatient and expect some sort of predictability in the program, I just press Enter - and often I get surprised: it may open almost anything.

This is not a new problem although nowadays there may be more options available in the command box. Could there be a way to set some user preferences?

Assuming desktop ... the command box aka universal input box aka go box options are trained by the choices you make. Slowly it will move open Passage Study Layout to the top. I learned this after having the same complaint.

Seems to learn slowly. I'll try to be patient.

I'm in your boat too. Solidarity!

When I complained it was a bug, no one echoed my complaint. If enough of us find it a problem, perhaps we should ask Faithlife to change the default starting point.
