Question:  Do Bible Commentaries that are built as personal books show up in a 'Passage Guide' or 'My Passage Guide'?

When you build it make sure you have set as 'commentary' and not as monograph, etc.- I usually set the subject field to i.e.- N.T. MATTHEW, OR O.T. GENESIS- this helps within Logos. Others may have a similar way to do this.

Yes - if they are created with a type "Bible Commentary"

The wiki article on Personal books notes (about Bible Commentaries): 

  • Mark text which comments on a verse with a milestone like [[@Bible:jn 1:1]]

https://community.logos.com/forums/t/36303.aspx is a thread containing an example and subsequent discussion

Thank you both for your reply.  I have them built as Bible commentaries.  I even deleted a couple of them and rebuilt, but they still do not show up even when I enter an exact milestone in the search bar.  However, I do have a few that I have built that do show up and they're built the exact same way which is why I'm confused.

Sounds like a problem with tagging.

Are you able to upload samples from one that works and one that doesn't? If so, we might be able to help work out what is different between them.

That isn't necessary, or did you mean it won't work if it has been uploaded?

Something else is wrong e.g. it doesn't fit the rule for the commentary collection.

Thread => Bug: 7.2 RC 3 Regression: Personal Book Discourse Glossary describes buggy Personal Book (PB) metadata change that silently disables PB indexing after upload (along with work around). Hence curious if PB Commentaries had been uploaded ?
