I just got the Boice Commentary as it was on sale for $99.

If doesn't seem to be showing up as a group of commentaries. Here is a screen shot:

Did you prioritize as a series? I just tried it and it worked.

i ended up sliding them all into the prioritization pane. All of them worked except four -- Romans, Philippians, Mathew, John. (The Bible Speaks Today is Boice.)

You may want to check again, but I'm pretty sure it mostly is John R.W. Stott plus some other evangelicals from the second half of the 20th century (Motyer, Milne, Green), but not Boice

You may be right about that. I still don't understand why Boice doesn't show up as a set.

Do they have the series field filled in the library? If not, what happens if you put in such a field by yourself in all the Boice commentaries and then try to prioritize again?

Set them all to "Boice". No change.

Josh Hunt- "I just got the Boice Commentary as it was on sale for $99."

Fortunate indeed I paid $279 for my set- what a joke.

Did you see my screen shot above? You need to right click and prioritize the series!

Thank you for that, Alabama.  Really helpful with a different commentary series that I had bought, but hadn't prioritized.

Regular good, useful information from this forum!

Yes, I have done this with dozens of commentaries, but it doesn't seem to work quite right with this set.

It has worked for me on every other series. Notice the four items I have marked in red. These should be one series -- Boise.

Josh, when I just tried it with a self-assigned series, it worked. But: hitting "prioritize this series" puts the series to the end of the list, without taking out the formerly prioritized individual titles from this series (this is a good thing since you may have an exceptional commentary from a series higher up than the rest. So I would suggest you look at the very bottom of your prio-list to check for the Boice series - and take out the 4 individual volumes.

If there is no individual book in prio list, dragging over one of them will automatically prioritize the series by default.

Hope this helps,

Mick

Works for me (see middle of list):

Perhaps renaming the books caused the problem?

EDIT: Mick explained things better.
