Why wouldn't I want the actual Bible as I requested?

I've never really understood the patience of you all who type in long things in the Go box. Open is optional. You can type just the title (ore better yet, the short title) of the resource to open it. I'd just type nkjv in there to open this bible.

That said, I tried to reproduce this and couldn't at first. It has something to do with what resources you've had open most recently.

My first try:

After selecting "The Nelson Study Bible: New King James Version" from the list (and closing it) twice, I had trained Logos to put that first in the menu.

Perhaps there should be some rule that if a shorter title exists that matches more closely, that should always be first in the list, regardless of how recently the other has been open. They did add some logic at some point to ensure that when I type "The Message" in the Go box, it will always put Eugene Peterson's The Message first in the list, not any of the many resources that begin with "The Message of..." I can't find the thread in the forums where that was discussed.

I enter the long form for reporting errors because the short form (or author form) are more apt to have legitimate alternative readings, In real life, I am sure I enter the long form more often than others - a habit I picked up from teaching where the students need to see the explicit command before learning the quick forms. However what really bugs me in the drop down is that when I have issued a complete, unambiguous command it isn't smart enough to list it.

I find it strange that the resources part of the drop down list doesn't show the NKJV for you. Mine looks like this, I like t so far, but I surely haven't trained Logos for the resources listed and the last resource is only a rather loose hit for the command:

So do I. Usually I can figure out why I get odd results but very now and then I get a real puzzler.

I get Factbook results prioritized. Because "Open New King James Version" is....

The right book does show among the Resources listed lower down, at least.

MJ,

I'm having trouble reproducing this. Can you paste New King James Version into the Library, sort the Details view by Rank, and send us a screenshot?

Thanks,

Philana
