Ok--this is barely worth asking, but I'm curious---why is Bible Picture #1 listed under Commentaries instead of Media? I don't look for it very much, but when I do I keep thinking it will be under Media and then a couple times I've had to search for it. According to my brain, or lack thereof, my second natural assumption is that it's under "Books." I guess I'm asking what the logic is so I can cement it in my pea brain and remember it from now on.

Thanks,

Scott

It WOULD make more sense to put it in "Media"... however ...

In Mantis, items in the "Commentaries" section are keyed to Bible book, chapter, and verse. This allows them to work with the BYOSB feature so that you can tap on a verse in a Bible and see related items.

The PIC1 volume came keyed to verses, so we had to put it with Commentaries so it'd show up in the BYOSB feature. It's a kludge, and we hope to eventually allow things to appear in multiple places.

We never conceived of Media that would be keyed to book, chapter, and verse when we designed Mantis.

Fair enough...makes sense. I'm glad I asked now because I hadn't even thought of trying to utilize it via the BYOSB feature.

Thanks,

Scott
