The Reading Plan allows you to export to text file. I was able to mimic the format and put my own verses into a text document that I want to import into Logos 6. How do I do that?

I am not sure what you are trying to do... You can "export" a reading plan so that you can have a printed copy... but reversing the process isn't possible. It might be good to know what kind of plan you are trying to create.

I was able to generate my own list that looks like this

[ ] January 01, 2016 Ecclesiastes 1-2, Psalm 49, Romans 1
[ ] January 02, 2016 Eccl 3-6, Rom 2
[ ] January 03, 2016 Eccl 7-9, Rom 3
[ ] January 04, 2016 Eccl 10-12, Rom 4
[ ] January 05, 2016 Genesis 1-3, Rom 5
[ ] January 06, 2016 Gen 4-5, Rom 6
[ ] January 07, 2016 Ps 53, Gen 6-8, Rom
[ ] January 08, 2016 Gen 9-10, Rom 8
[ ] January 09, 2016 Gen 11-12, Rom 9

...

Seems kind of weird why I wouldn't be able to just import the list into a reading plan.

I have long been a proponent of beefing up the ability to create and share more advanced reading plans... not just bible ones either. However, "importing" a reading plan isn't straightforward. There would have to be a clearly defined syntax and ANY deviation would ruin the plan. Most Logos users aren't computer programers.

He didn't. You can't import reading plans.

Which is a pity. But you can import a Passage List and then generate a Reading Plan from it.

The export is to create a simple manual checklist to use outside of the software with a print bible, hence the set of square brackets at the start of each line for you mark as completed that days reading.

There is no simple way of importing a list into the software to create a reading plan. To create a complex custom reading plan you a combination of passage lists (imported from text files)  and other reading lists (based on passage ranges and set for reading on specific days e.g. Saturday and Sunday only).

I realise it is not possible to import a reading plan, but I am trying to copy one, so create a new one based on an old one. I was using a custom reading plan, hadn't entered all dates yet, but used it, and kept updating adding an extra month to the plan. However, I got a bit behind, and got past the last date. No problem for the desktop, I could add new entries. But the Android app shows an empty plan, and crashed when selecting options. So I am looking for a way to copy to a new plan, which I can then see in the app again. 

Any suggestions?

I don't fully follow. If you don't mind, please create a new thread. It might be helpful to have some screen shots. If the issue is about creating a plan, use the L6 forum. If it is about crashing on Android, use that forum.

You have to create a personalized book. And after you have created a personalized book. Then select "Generate a Reading Plan." 

If the book you have create has 365 individualized lines with Bible References. Logos will atomically recognize the references and generate a yearly plan

Hi James,

Sounds like it would work. Attached is a screen shot of my personalized book, but when I try to generate a reading plan using this, it puts everything on January 1. How do I designate what goes on day 2, etc? Apparently, hitting the "Enter" key in Word is not enough.
