This is a rather basic question for Logos 8. How do I change the default Bible that is being used for lookups on Logos 8? I couldn't find it.

Welcome to the forums. Library | Panel Menu (kebab) | Prioritize resources ... top Bible is the default

Never mind problem solved you have to go to the library and change the priority.

Thank you for the reply I figured it out before I saw your reply, but thank you very much for helping.

This brings up a good point since you used to be able to quickly change the top bible from the homepage. I used that feature all the time but it's been removed in Logos 8 (unless I just missed it). I think this quick start feature should be restored to the homepage, especially for people newer to the software (and for people like me who switch their top bible a lot).

It's been removed for now because the homepage we cannot customize so look for it to come back later when we can customize.

I don't know that any commitments regarding the prioritization tool have been made as it relates to homepage updates that are forthcoming.

In terms of providing a quick way for users to change their preferred Bible from the Homepage, I'd love your feedback on a solution we're kicking the tires on. 

  • We're considering making a command to "Set preferred Bible to____" in the Go Box, which you could then save as a shortcut. That way, you could set up several shortcuts to change your preferred Bible with just a click. Do you think that would meet your needs?

It's okay with me. I just didn't know how to change it. I frequently change between different English bibles.

One good thing to come out of this - I now know I am not the only one switching Bibles regularly.

what is "priority" as I do not see that option when I click on "Libary" - I have three horizontal chevrons on immediate left (open or close sidebar), a search bar, change resource display mode, information, open floating window, and open or close popup menu.  I do not see anything with "priority"

Click on those three little dots at the far right top of the Library Panel. You will see "Prioritize Resources" near the bottom of the drop down menu. Drag resources into the Prioritization panel and order them as you like.

That would be a good idea considering that I change from different Bibles such as the NASB and the English Bible and the JPS Tanakh and the New American Bible.

My feedback :  follow the example of theWord (free Bible software) --  right-click on a Bible tab > make default.   Easy, quick, intuitive.
