I tried to include 3 one-volume commentaries/study Bibles and the 3 translations to which they applied. There appears to be a limit of 5 resources and I need 6 Crying. however the listing of the resources and their display is inconsistent.

  • the header tab converts Haydock to a pipe
  • the drop-down menu loses the Douay-Rheims translation
  • the actual pane drops the Ignatius Study Bible

There may be a limit but I have a Bible and seven commentaries open here

And - due to screen width limitations - this is probably more than I would want to work with.

Thanks for testing this stuff out.

On your first point, I'm guessing that HCBC and ICSB:NT don't have an explicit abbreviation, so those two titles are not showing properly in the header tab. We should be generating an abbreviation for resources that don't have an explicit one (like we do in the configuration drop-down).

On point two, Douay-Rheims doesn't show up in the list, because it's the host resource, and you can't switch that out. You can only select/deselect the guest resources. In other words, you have opened a resource panel for Douay-Rheims, and are selecting which other resources you want to view along with it. We may change this in the future, but it's not planned to get in right away.

On your third point, does Ignatius Study Bible include commentary for Genesis 24? Does it work if you remove one of the other commentaries? I'm not aware of any particular limit on the number of panels, but perhaps there is a minimum size to each resource. Can you make the panel wider to see if it's just hiding off the right edge?

I'll check on these issues at work tomorrow.

Oh, hey... I see you've encountered the bug where close the locator bar only closes the bar in the first or last resource (depending on if you use the panel menu or the "x" icon). No need to report this, as we've already got a fix internally, but this is the kind of detail we'd really love to have noticed before we finish the beta. Please pay attention to the little details as you use the multi-resource view. We'll appreciate it a lot! If something looks funny, definitely ask!

There is indeed a bug that incorrectly skips the title of resources that have no abbreviated title. We'll get that fixed up.

Ignatius Study Bible is only for the New Testament. If a resource does not support a range of verses that includes the current location of the main resource, then it will not be displayed. If you navigated to Luke, you will see that Ignatius properly shows up. This feature allows you to do something like adding a Greek New Testament and Hebrew Old Testament, and be able to see the appropriate original language without having a third of your screen be wasted space.

True. Smile I wasn't specific enough. Her screenshot indicates that she added the New Testament resource to the configuration.

I amend my statement to: "The Ignatius Catholic Study Bible: The New Testament" is only for the New Testament.

But shouldn't serial resources handle the multi-volume aspect? We don't want a column for each volume.

We have plans to support adding an entire series to the multi-resource configuration, but at this point you need to add each individual resource you are interested in.

Even now though, you shouldn't get a column for each volume, because only the volume with the valid navigation position will be displayed. Try it and see.

In the meantime, if you add a column for the OT resource and then a column for the NT resource right after it, it will seem as if it's one unified column, since the NT column will be hidden when you're in the OT, and vice versa, but one or the other will show up in that spot in the sequence of columns.

This should be fixed in 6.6 Beta 3.
