The "Go" help me to open the top commentary already. How about if I want to open the top two automatically?

I don't think there is any way to customize the default layout that opens up when you type a passage into the "Go" box on the Home Page. But it has been asked about often enough that I think it's time to propose that as a suggestion.

You can override the default Passage Guide and Exegetical Guide that come up from that "Go" box by creating custom guide templates and naming them "My Passage Guide" and "My Exegetical Guide." So maybe you ought to be able to override the default layout that comes up from the "Go" box by creating a layout and calling it "My Layout." (I'm not sure this would be the best implementation though, because some users might naively create a "My Layout" that has nothing to do with Bible study -- maybe a devotional reading layout or something -- and then their "Go" box won't work; it won't bring up anything useful if they type in a passage, and they'll be confused).

However, in the absence of this, a quick trick that I learned at the Morris Proctor seminar which will get your second top commentary to open very quickly once this default layout comes up: double-click on the blank space to the right of the + which is to the right of the tab of your top commentary.

Result (in this example)...

It all takes about 2 seconds.
