I have seen this in more than one resource; but today I just got irked enough to screenshot it and complain.

I have seen this a LOT in Steve Gregg's "Revelation: Four Views" but I suspect that is due to spasmodically attempting to keep up with the columnar alignment issues such a book creates.

Back to the EEC James commentary however...

HOW in the world does a digital edition book go from page 365 → 370 → 371 → 367?

Granted this is a screenshot from a resource no longer for sale but what is going on here?

Hmm Sarcasm is my love language. Obviously I love you.

This is a quick bump to give the post more visibility. 16

Thanks for bringing this to our attention. I can't speak to the other resources where these errors have occurred, but for EEC James, because this volume has been retracted from publication, we won't be correcting these errors for this resource specifically.

So even though it is a resource we have paid good money to Lexham Press in order to have it in our libraries your refuse to fix this resource. it‘s a Lexham Press title, not a third party title. Thank you Lexham Press for your inaction on this issue.

Ah, at last an honest expression of FL's predilection for "sloppy" -- unfortunately, I prefer "polished". But then again, I thought the resources we purchased, we purchased with (at least minimal) maintenance for life. You may rightly object to my sarcastic/catty tone but it really does represent my reaction to your post.  Other times, that would not be true but ...

I agree. This is unfortunate. Though I would not expect new added features, the stuff that should have been there from the beginning should be fixed. I also wish they gave DrV a chance to revise instead of canning it

I agree.  I would hope that this does not set a precedent for other resources.

I don't have this resource, but would like to echo that it is a horrible idea to leave known errors in place because Faithlife was sloppy in checking for plagiarism. That was the company's fault, not the buyers. They should get bugs fixed, even if no new tagging will be added. I hope this gets reconsidered.
