It seems to me I used to be able to bring up say Anchor Yale Bible Commentary, to Matthew 15:1. At some point, I type into the little text box at the top of the AYBC pane "Luke 3:1", and since AYBC is a series it would open AYBC Luke. 

If so, this is broken - I have tried it with several series, and it does not open the new book in the series, it stays where it is.

It's still working for me. I don't have the volumes you mentioned so tried to get "close". Starting in AYBC John

I entered Romans 1:8

And clicking on the link took me to this

If you click the "info" button on one of the resources and scroll down it should show it is in the "Anchor Yale Bible" series

If the Series information isn't there / correct then it won't work properly.

What are you seeing?

I think so, but for clarification: this works only on desktop.

Apologies since unable to replicate. Also not have Matthew => The Anchor Yale Bible (88 vols.) Noticed Matthew is not in => Anchor Yale Bible Commentary Upgrade (2 vols.)

Starting in Mark 16, am able to change to Luke 3 (after waiting for pop-up to appear):

This helped, thanks guys. There is a bug, or at least a problem - the issue is the problem where the drop down takes forever to populate. I can't find the thread right now, but it has been reported and acknowledged for a long time. On my fast Mac it takes 17 seconds for the drop down to populate! If you hit enter before it completes, it does nothing - I had forgotten how slow this was. If you wait until the drop down populates, then click the link, it works. Try it - Type a verse and hit enter right away. Nothing. 

I wish I could find that thread, Logos said they have the issue noted and there is a problem. Why haven't they fixed it, I think it's been a year?

EDIT: found the thread - acknowledged by Andrew Batishko 10 months ago...

The Matthew volume used to be in the Yale Anchor set, but was pulled.

It would be really nice if series worked on mobile.

This is a performance regression introduced by the new “Added the ability to navigate by pericope in the navigation box of resources” feature in Logos 7.11 https://wiki.logos.com/Logos_7.11 

I've let the team know.

This is now fixed in 7.15.
