It would be helpful if the 4 Texts that make up the Apocryphal Gospels resource didn't all look the same in a library search. I can identify them by hovering, but that's slower than reading the text already displayed on the screen. Unfortunately, the same text is displayed for all four (Greek, English, Latin, Greek 2). The short title (e.g., APOGOS-T) would be one way to distinguish them.

A few things that you may know, but perhaps others don't:

1) You can expand the size of the Library window to fully view its contents.

2) In the Accordance Preferences, under "Appearance", you can change the font size of the items in the Library.

3) If you feel the Library window is taking up too much space on your screen, you can have it appear as a popover on top of your workspace. That option is in the "Workspaces" area of your preferences.

4) If you use the Library as a popover, you can use a keyboard shortcut to have it appear and disappear. I've mapped it to Command-L (Control-L in Windows) to make it easier to remember. You can change your keyboard preferences in that section of the Accordance Preferences.

Thank you Mark. I didn't remember all of those options. I'll use a popover and make the library wider. I think it would be best for the Library to display the short name of resources when the full name doesn't fit, as panes do. However, I wouldn't give it a high priority.
