I have been trying to find out what textual commentaries are available through FL but my search has not been very productive. 

I know of Metzger's NT textual commentary and Lexham Textual notes on the Bible.

Anything else?

I'd not heard of textual commentaries until you mentioned them today.  A quick google revealed this thesis, which you could always turn into a Personal Book:  http://etheses.whiterose.ac.uk/296/

That's an interesting question. In the OT, the DSS Biblical index is carried as a normal commentary (commentary section) vs a textual commentary.  I'd guess it's something of an oddball.

Also this probably is not major but long-term, I'd hope Logos can allow finer assignments of resource type, so that PBs can be put in the textual commentary section, instead of the commentary section.  Almost all of my notes that I put in a PB are textual commentary.

Plus I think the EG still needs some on-going work.

- Transcriptions > comparisons seem randomly parsed. The listings are never complete (relative to the library), and the click-on results don't pull all the sources listed (even though they're in the library).

- Sources like Philo's apparatus for the OT don't get pulled in (whether a textual commentary or an apparatus).

"God will save his fallen angels and their broken wings He'll mend."

There's this on the LXX:

It's probably worth it's price, but it's not cheap that's for sure!

NET Study Bible focuses a lot on textual commentary issues, and usually offers a nice summary of the more important issues.

As well, Word, Hermeneia, and Anchor Bible Commentaries tend to comment on these issues in some depth.
