Reading Plan for Code of Canon Law - Hideous Results

I decided that perhaps it is time for me to at least familiarize myself with the Code of Canon Law, and I created a six-month reading plan to read it through sequentially. In creating this plan, I used the following settings:

Read All Passages
in Code of Canon Law: New English Translation
every day
starting today 
and finishing in six months ,
by myself .

And the results came out really hideous, as shown in the attached screenshot. It makes me dizzy just looking at it, and does not make for a pleasant reading experience.

Am I doing something wrong here?

I am using Verbum 7.6 SR-1 (7.6.0.0037) on macOS Sierra (10.12.5).

I can replicate your results but don't immediate recognize the pattern in the odd repetitions. Please report this as a bug, inserting the word BUG at the beginning of the title and using the paper clip icon to insert the screenshot so it displays directly in the message.

MJ, I see that you added some additional supporting screenshots to my bug report; many, many thanks for that! Ummm.... I feel a bit foolish asking this, but how DID you get your screenshots to appear in the post? I used the paperclip like you said, and all I got was that little blue box. Could it be because I saved my screenshot in the wrong format (jpg)?

I think there is a problem on the Mac with jpeg or jpg - one works but the other doesn't IIRC. Unfortunately, I'm on a PC so I didn't keep the details in mind.

MJ, guess what? I was able to upload jpeg screenshots in another post here today (Reading Plan with Custom Layout).

I created those screenshots in the same exact way that I did the others, using the same software, on the same Mac. You will not believe what the trick was. Surprise I just changed the file extension from .jpg to .jpeg before uploading it. Go figure!

This indicates to me that is a limitation of the forum software, and I do appreciate your pointing me in the right direction!
