I noticed just now that links to the Ancient Christian Commentary Romans volume that are cited in the Lexham Bible Guide: Romans are broken.  Although I own the ACCS Complete Set, the guide tells me that I don't own the ACCSNT06 resource. 

I presume this is happening because the ACCS Romans volume is in its 2nd. edition and that the guide is tagged to the 1st. ed.  However, I have both the first and second ACCS Romans editions in my library.  Is Logos updating the Lexham Bible Guides when it releases new editions of tagged resources?

I asked essentially the same question regarding linking in Mobile-ED NT331 to Moo's Encountering the Book of Romans 2nd edition. Short answer - don't wait for it.

If the two versions of this ACCS volume are based on the same print edition then missing links to a second version may receive attention. The first edition of Moo's Encountering the Book of Romans exists as two unique Logos versions each linked separately in NT331. Similarly for the second of two versions of Wallace's Greek Grammar Beyond the Basics based on the same print edition a substantial re-tagging effort is underway.

When based on different print editions the magnitude of sales for the relevant resources may influence when such editing/tagging is done.

I think this case is a bit different.

There is a second edition of ACCS Romans, but the issue is not one of keeping up with new content, but with linking the right resource. 

The first and second edition or ACCS Ro are actively updated by Faithlife (2014 updates). But you will note that the first edition already has "Rev" in its filename.

 

This goes back to the re-issuing of the series some months ago. Logos produced the ACCSREVxxx files on publisher request, maintains only those files and gave all owners of the old files the new ones for free with the recommendation to hide the old. Thus ACCSxxx files without REV are deprecated for all practical purposes and don't even come up on https://www.logos.com/resources/LLS_xxxxx like any existing resource should. 

Usage of ACCSNT06 instead of ACCSREVNT06 therefore is a bug and should be corrected.

This is essentially what happened with the first edition of Moo's Encountering the Book of Romans. The publisher withdrew rights to the images in this book thus resulting in a second Logos version of the edition, without images and with a new filename.

According to the example of tagging in the NT331 resource I would expect the tagging in the Lexham Bible Guide to be resolved for the 1st edition ACCSREVNT06. Tagging this Lexham Bible Guide for the 2nd edition of ACCS I believe will depend upon how well both resources sell.

Thank you both for confirming the issue.  I will give Logos a call and report the issue as well.
