Default Layout and default book questions

Hi all,
My project has two book collections, the local language one and the French Louis Segond. I’ve set it to default to verse by verse (interlinearized) and to come up in Luke chapter 1, since we have the audio for Luke in the APK. However, it comes up in Matthew 1 and single pane. I do have a contents menu, with the NT as one item, a glossary as another, and a topical index as a third. Is the contents menu stopping my default options from working? Has anyone else successfully got a project to open verse by verse, and at a specific book and chapter?
