When I click on the Faithlife symbol in my toolbar, I get what amounts to notes on the verses. When I click on the Lexham symbol in the toolbar, I get an interlinear version. I just want the Bible text, with the verse numbers. I see the Visual Filter option. The Faithlife filters don't offer what I'm looking for but the Lexham filter does. But after I've checked the options I want, the text is still interlinear.

What do I do to get the Bible text with verses?

Hi Pat - and welcome to the forums.

Sorry but I don't understand what you are asking. I don't understand, for example, what you mean by the "Lexham" filter.

Pkease explain again in a bit more detail and, if possible, post screenshots using the paperclip icon.

Graham it sounds to me like the OP has a shortcut to the Faithlife Study Bible and the Lexham SBL Greek Interlinear on their toolbar, but is trying to open the bible, perhaps the Lexham English Bible - maybe they have the free essentials package. 

If someone at their computer can give some instructions with screenshots to help out OP on ways to open a bible, LEB, I'm assuming they have.

Hey, Graham. I'm not likely to forget your name that's my husband's name. And thank you for the prompt reply. I don't know how to make a screen shot in this program. When I went to HELP, it would return anything on that word. So here's my description.

I have on my toolbar (on the same line as Documents, Guides and Tool) an icon for the Lexham English Bible. When I clink on it, it opens a tab called The Lexham English Bible (in the form of  Greek Interlinear text). Right below the tab name is a space to enter the scripture reference you want. The the right of the scripture reference are 2 lines that look like this    //     . If you put your mouse on this symbol, you see that this is the Parallel Resource Sets. If you move one more to the right of that symbol, you come to three dots (one on top and two on the bottom, like the abbreviation for "therefore."). If you put your mouse on this, you see that this symbol is called Visual Filters. I think this is the icon I want to get just Bible Text with verse numbers (instead of the Greek interlinear that comes up). When I click on this icon (the Visual Filters icon), I can check many things and I thought by cheeking "Bible Text Only" and ""Chapter/verse Number" would give me a standard format for a Bible--English text (and English text only) with Chapter and verse markings. So that was the filter I was referring to. It doesn't get me what I'm wanting.

So, how do I get to a standard format for the Lexham English Bible, with chapter and verse markings (Chapter divisions optional) so I can just read the chapter I'm wanting to read? If possible, I like footnotes, like a study Bible, but that's not required.

I have a similar problem with Failthlife Study Bible. When I click my Faithlife icon (next to my Lexham icon in the toolbar), I get the "Study" part of the Bible because there are notes on various verses of the passage I want to read. But there's no Bible with just the text and chapter and verse markings (Chapter division is optional). 

In both cases, I'd like to read the Faithlife Bible and the KLexham English Bible text but don't know how to get there from here!

Thank you for taking the time to help me with this. I hope I've been less confusing in my description.

Pat

1. The Faithlife Study Bible is just the notes; the text is the LEB

2. If you continue moving to the right of visual filters you will find inline interlinear which has the options to remove the Greek.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

Pat apologies I misunderstood some of what you were saying in your post, and because I was on my phone at the time and could not remember your name so used OP, much nice to use your name.

There are two ways the interlinear can be displayed with the LEB so I created a quick video below showing the two options and how you can turn off and on their display. As MJ noted the Faithlife Study Bible does not include the bible text but in the video I have shown how you can use both the Lexham English BIble (LEB) and Faithlife Study Bible (FSB) together.

Hope this helps you out.

Thanks so much, MJ.

I had looked at that icon but it wasn't "lit up" so I just ignored it. After your suggestion, I opened Logos again and clicked on my Lexham icon. That inline interlinear icon was still not lit up but I clicked on it and unchecked the first box. Voila - Bible text! 

I am very impressed with this forum group. The response is so fast. Since I'm new to this program, I may have other questions and it's nice to know there are people who are willing to share their knowledge.

Glad you have it working

Please do post back with any questions about the use of the software - there is normally someone around to help.

Thanks, Graham, for the video. A picture really is worth a thousand words.

I didn't think to mention this to MJ, but the name Faithlife Study Bible caused me to think it was a Bible. I could get the commentary notes but didn't realize that was the study notes were the "Bible." 

Thanks for showing me how to link the two together - a wonderful feature. Now that you bring that up, I do remember it being in the 30 day training video. 

You mentioned that I shouldn't post questions about the use of the software since there was normally someone around to help. I thought the forum was the way to go so I'm glad for the correction. But if I don't use the forum, how do I get to the other "someone" when I need help?

Hi Pat

Pat Browne:

Yes I can understand that. Smile

Normally in Logos, Study Bible Notes are purchasable separately from the actual Bibles so that we can use them with the translation of our choice. 

https://www.logos.com/product/53349/niv-zondervan-study-bible-notes, for example, contains just the notes for an NIV Study Bible but you can get both combined if you wish at https://www.logos.com/product/53348/niv-zondervan-study-bible ,

Doc posted the video - and, you are right, being able to link them is really useful.

Sorry for any confusion  - but I did write "Please do post back with any questions about the use of the software" so sorry if that didn't come across.

These forums are, indeed, the place to post questions. Looking forward to engaging with you on them.

Funnily, I read Graham's reply as 'don't post' too. I was surprised. Then I read it again, and it said 'do post'!  I wonder why I read it that way.

Anyway Graham is what a Japan drama calls a 'faraway neighbor' .... somewhere north of France.  And he keeps a secret stash of valuable information that he obtained from somewhere.

I agree a study Bible sounds like a Bible. But Logos always keeps the study part separate, so people can match the notes to any Bible they prefer.

Thanks Denise - intriguing.

I wonder whether it was the additional "do".

Would "please post" have been clearer with the additional word suggesting the negative?

I carefully analized my error, and don't think syntax or semantics could cause my problem. 'do' emphasized the invitation, along with 'back'.

I'm going to get in trouble with Alabama, but I'm so used to his 'Please post on another thread' final sentence; I suspect my angst was revealed.  But that illustrates how meaning can float above words.

Well, there certainly is a difference between "do" and "don't" isn't there? Thanks for clearing that up. I didn't know where else to go to get questions answered if not the forum. Anyhow, you forum people are so nice to work with.
