I'm using the Logos app on my iPad 6, and have set up a split screen so that NASB is on top and UBS5 is on the bottom, and have linked the two books.  Yet, when I select a text reference in one, (e.g. Heb 10:19 in NASB), my UBS shows text beginning in the middle of Heb 10:17.  Sometimes the "offset" is even worse.  As a result, I cannot see the same verse range in both windows.  Adjusting relative window size does not fix the problem, though I can sometimes get close.

Is there any way to ensure that the verse requested appears at the top of BOTH windows?

Sorry Benjamin, this is not currently possible, but we are hoping to make this available in a future version of our app.

Thanks, Joe.  This seems to be a pretty basic thing for linking texts, particularly two Bibles in THE ultimate Bible app (which it really is!).  Since the links must be syncing to underlying tags, one wonders what those tags must be if not the book:chapter:verse tags.  

I am currently beta-testing for the next iteration of the app.  My hope was to get this issue communicated to those developing it and see if it couldn't be addressed in this version (or certainly the very next one). 

Thanks for all you do!

Logos has had trouble verse linking for many years. On the app, you have to de-link; the desktop is iffy, but close.  Seems to be device-type specific (app), and panel-size on the desktop.

EDIT: Not detracting from Benjamin's USB5 problem, but I just checked out the new Freer collection (mobile downloaded!).  But it really has trouble getting the verse display to match the text display (not yet, so far).  But that's ok ... only Bible text in Logos 'Bible' Software. Smiling.
