Post Bookmark not showing
I created a book with sub topics of Chapter x. I created a bookmark in one of the chapters and when I try linking to it, the bookmark does not show; it will link to the entire chapter. I have done this several times before with modules I downloaded.

Steps used:
1. Create bookmark "MCC2_9_23".
2. Verify book mark exists with "Edit Bookmarks"
3. Try to link to bookmark:
A. Select text in module.
B. Select "Hyperlink" from context menu.
C. Select "a topic of this book/map"
D. Select book containing bookmark
F. Try to enter bookmark in "Topic/verse" - bookmark is not available.

I followed your steps, and i see no problem.
Is it possible that the book/map you link is not the same? Possible it's a duplicate?
First you have to select the 'Target/verse topic' and then, below that, the 'Bookmark' combo will show the bookmark. Do you follow this sequence?

The bookmark does not show in the drop down list under "Topic/Verse" as it normally does. I even went to "Edit Bookmark" (shows under "All Bookmarks"), copied/pasted and it does not show. I also changed the name of the bookmark and that did not help.

If you want I can send the book to you...

In the "Insert/edit hyperlink" dialog Step 1. Do you use the second target "a topic from the current module"(xxxxx)

The options only allow the selection of one item and I have to select as described in "3A" of my list to get the correct book. The default name in "a topic from the current module"(xxxxx) is the current module that I am trying to place the hyperlink in and it cannot be changed.

I have placed the bookmark in a "book" and I am trying to put the hyperlink in a "commentary". Yes, the commentary is accepting links, but not the bookmark I create.

I would suggest to make a compact USB install and copy just these two modules there and try from that setup

Question first: The book I created has "topics" and the hyperlink sees "all" the topics but not the bookmark. The help files says "create links in modules that point to another topic or verse"; does the bookmark have to be a topic to work? This really doesn't seem right because it eliminates the need for bookmarks if all the topics are visible anyway.

select the Topic first from the list, then the bookmarks will show that are in that Topic

Ok, that worked; don't know how I missed it.

What showed in the popup was everything in that topic (topic being "Chapter 9") after the bookmark; Example: The bookmark is for "23" but what shows is 23 and everything to the end of Chapter 9. Is there a way to show selective text in the popup?

Yes, you can do that: put another bookmark at the end of the passage you want to display in the popup, then
select at the 'Until passage' drop down '[Next bookmark]'
