In the Passage guide, I noticed that mousing over a commentary's title gives the "title page" of the resource rather than a preview of the hyperlinked article.  By contrast, I discovered today that mousing over the same commentary in the Explorer window gives exactly what i would expect, a preview of the first couple of paragraphs of the article.  This mousover preview is wonderfully useful, but as the explorer window is not yet rearrangable, i'd like to see the Passage/Exegetical guide fixed.

I debated whether this was a bug or a suggestion...but for the life of me, i can't imagine why someone would want to read the title page of a favorite resource more than once.  The important thing here is the linked article.  In addition, the little star icon refers to the article rather than the book, so the mouseover could serve as a nice reminder of the article's content.

This is consistent throughout PG wherever a resource title appears. It has ever bothered me as I click to go straight to the article. You might want to look if there is a suggestion on user voice.

I actually prefer the current arrangement. That's because I have several similarly named commentaries, and I often can't work out which is which, without hovering over them. When I'm deciding which to click on, I'm much more interested in who the author is than the first few paragraphs of content.

I prefer to see the article but it would be nice if in some way we could have both the resource and the article for those who need to see the resource info.

That should read

"It has never bothered me ..."
