Is there a way to set a passage study layout to change based upon prioritization? For instance, I don't want a commentary series to open necessarily. I want my top priorities to be opened. I used bestcommentary.com rankings to go through my library and see what the best resources I have for each commentary are, and have prioritized accordingly. 

Ideally, when I type a passage in the passage box on the home screen, I would like to see a passage guide and exegetical guide show up in the top-left corner, the FSB in the bottom-left corner, the ESV (multiview with NA28/BHS) in the top-right corner, and my top priority commentary in the bottom-right corner (i.e. IVP NT Commentary for 1 Peter, NIVAC for 2 Peter/Jude, PNTC for Johannine Epistles, NIGTC for Revelation).

Does anyone know how to make this happen?

For this you need two things:

To set up the layout you want use Custom Home Page Layouts - introduced at https://community.logos.com/forums/t/122221.aspx 

To ensure that you get the commentary you want you will need to use Advanced Prioritization - outlined at https://wiki.logos.com/Prioritizing#Advanced_Prioritization 

Does this help?

This is what I have set in my Logos Library, but when I attempt to modify the layout, it uses the same commentary for every book instead of using my preferred commentaries. See attached image of prioritization in my library, plus the result of typing a passage from Matthew, and a passage from Revelation. Essentially, the Revelation one is correct, but for Matthew, I would like my NAC to open, not the NIGTC. 

Does that make sense? Is there a way to accomplish this?

Your prioritization of commentary is reflected in the Passage Guide results, but it will not affect which books are used/opened in the layout i.e. you have to open the preferred commentary from the link in PG, else the home page Passage study will just use the commentary series (NIGTC) that you set in a custom layout.
