Suggestion: It would be helpful to be able to create a folder holding all of my commentaries, for example, on the book of Romans. Since some commentaries are purchased in sets and cannot be broken into individual volumes I would have to put, for example, the whole Word Biblical Commentary into the Romans folder. This makes it convenient to access the Romans volume in the WBC set with the drop down menu on the pane. The problem with this, however, is that if I want to access the John volume while doing another study, I have to remember it is in the Romans folder. Solution: Allow the Word Commentary set to be placed in both a Romans folder and a John folder by means of an alias. I tried to use different workspaces and its okay but I think aliases would be more effective. Thanks!

Good suggestion!


Actually, you can already do that by creating a new "My Group." It's a custom folder containing aliases of your choice of tools, texts, etc. Just create a new folder in the Library, under the My Groups category, then drag and drop whichever resources to it you'd like.


Any My Group folder can also be searched via the Contextual menu (right-click or control-click) on a verse reference or a word. That's a really nice shortcut!
