BUG: Advanced Prioritization Range Works, But Disappears

I've been working on prioritizing my commentaries today. I've set Advance Prioritization Ranges for each, which work just fine, but they stop showing up once I've closed my Library and re-open it. So, basically, you can't see what the Range is or whether you've set it!

In the attached screenshot, I have set the Range to "Matthew" and it does work with the Passage Guide. But the Range no longer shows up, so you don't know whether you've set it or not.

Any chance of getting this fixed?

EDIT: I'm running Logos 5.1a SR-1 (5.1.1.0600) on Mac OS X 10.8.4.

I can't reproduce in Windows, but can you give an example of exactly what you are setting and whether results differ for individual resources vs a series.

Adam,

After reading your thread, I check all my advanced prioritization. See my screenshots that show some strange name instead of ESV. So there seem to be some issues with advanced prioritization for Logos 5.1a SR-1 (5.1.1.0600) for Mac. My other Advanced prioritization are OK for both Mac and Windows.

Dave,

I'm setting the Range to "Matthew," for example, for all the Ulrich Luz Hermeneia volumes. It works just fine and, initially, when setting up the range, the word "Matthew" shows up in the Range just like it's supposed to. As soon as I close out of my Library window, however, and go back and click "Set Advanced Prioritization" again, the word "Matthew" isn't to be found in the Range field, but it works as if it's there.

So, in other words, the Range has been set to "Matthew," just like I put it, but the word "Matthew" "disappears" and you can't see whether a Range of any sort has been set.

Does that make sense?

Confirmed (not ESV this time, though):

Also note the cut off letters with larger font size.

And I notice two more parity issues comparing the screenshots above: on Windows "Prefer these resources:" is in bold, and titles having advanced prioritizations are in italics. Minor, but more readable, and presumably very easy to fix.

And while I'm at it: is there a case for making the advanced prioritizations collapse/expand? I've always found them extremely annoying. They waste space, take time to scroll through, and generally disturb the layout of the panel and the ability to get an overview of one's prioritizations.

If you set the range as follows for Puplit Commentary: Matthew, Vol I

the setting will disappear. You must set it as follows:

The example in your screenshot would work in PG because the Volume specifically applies to Matthew!

The key part is that you must first set the "of this type" drop-down (the first one) to "Bible" before entering a Bible passage in the "in this range" textbox.

I found two more Prioritize bugs, so I've started a new thread for all of mine at BUGS 5.1a: Multiple bugs in Prioritize.

Thanks for the help, everyone. Apparently I wasn't using the range field correctly. (Not that it's particularly easy to figure out...)
