How do I change the Top Bibles on the iPad Mini? I can do this on my desktop easily. I want to be able to "stitch" a series that would show up in the Text Comparison tool.

As an example: I was successful in following the 24 May Blog entry on "Keeping Greek/Hebrew Skills Sharp" hoping the result of making a Hebrew-Greek Bible in the desktop's Text Comparison tool would transfer to the iPad Mini, but it did not. Restarting both the desktop and iPad Mini had no effect.

If this has been discussed before, please point me in the direction of the discussion.

thanX!!

It <should> come from the desktop preference. There is no way to re-prioritize Bibles on mobile (outside of selecting a "preferred bible," which would change the preference on desktop as well.

What do you mean by "'stitch' a series"?

Are you using "advanced" prioritization on desktop? If so, those preferences do NOT populate to mobile. I did verify that my text comparison list order does come from my desktop prioritization list.

It's a Mark Wardian term....from the blog post Dr Wooten mentioned:

"You “stitch” resources (any resources) together in Logos by putting them in a “Series.” 

https://blog.logos.com/2017/05/simple-tip-keeping-greek-hebrew-skills-sharp/#more-79714 

Given it was used on an official Logos blog  multiple times by a Logos emloyee it probably came across as official terminology for creating a series.

The way to put a Hebrew Bible and a Greek New Testament together is to open up your library, find each resource that you want to stitch together into your series, and open up its information. I suggest you put the Lexham Hebrew Bible and the SBLGNT together, and call the series “LHB and SBLGNT.”

I have experimented with and agree with Dr Wootten this is not working correctly. I created a user created series as described by Mark Ward i his blog post, just with a slightly less cumbersome name.

When using Top Bibles in the Text Comparison tool on iOS Version 5.15.2 (5.15.2.0192) top bibles displays the top 9 prioritized bibles except for the to a user created series Hebrew-Greek Bible. It does not ignore the KJV text which is also in a user created series along with the associated Apocrypha resource.

When using Top Bible in the Text Comparison tool on the desktop windows application (7.6.0.0037), the text comparison tool picks up the user created series and it works fine while I am in a new testament passage but as soon as I move to an OT passage rather than simply moving over to the Lexham Hebrew Bible and displaying the hebrew text, it fails saying there are no results for the references, yet when I treat the two resources in the series separately they work fine and find the respective references in without issue.  

Hopefully below screenshots will demonstrate what I might not have adequately describe above.

thanX!! to all who have replied and experimented with this cool idea. Perhaps it will port over to the iOS at some future date. I thought "stitch" was a spiffy word to use to describe this particular action. I broke my own rule about using colloquialisms without explanation. sorrySad.

God bless

I may be wrong, but I am not sure that the Text Comparison tool follows the text on its own. I think that assigning a Link Set is needed.

Yes you need to create a linkset which is what I did when I tried to get this to work I the desktop. i have set up a linkset A and a link set B for the two scenarios I tried.
