I open book of Ruth and expect that clicking on the Add Parallel (button) > Reference Tools > Biblical Studies Accordance will offer me «The Gospel According to the Old Testament» series books (in this case, «From Famine To Fullness The Gospel According To Ruth»). It doesn't. It shows only 3 resources. But in that section I have more than 40 resources. Could you please fix this?

 

The same relates also the the Info Pane. After the commentaries section Accordance could show relevant Biblical Studies resources. It's all about making the resources I already have more accessible and visible.

 

(P.S. Perhaps not all resources need to be shown in Add Parallel menu, but only the relevant ones, about the currently opened Bible book.)

The only type of resource that can be added in parallel to a commentary is a Tool that has a reference-based structure. If you look at the Table of Contents in "From Famine To Fullness The Gospel According To Ruth", you'll see that it's not organized by reference, but by chapter, based on a series of topics. Accordance will only display those Tools that have the ability to sync to a Text.

OK, that sounds logical. But in that case is there any way to make those books more visible as an option for further studies when a particular Bible book is opened? (Separate section in the Info Pane?)

Yes, they recently added My Toolset to the Info Pane, for exactly that purpose, and you can move it up in the list, too.
