Hi there.

I am following this tutorial at the moment: https://mpseminars.com/course/quickstart-logos-8/section/bible-study-with-go-and-guides-passage-study/

I expect the layout when typing "Luke 4.1-4" in the Go-box and then select "Open Passage Layout Luke 4:1-4" from the dropdown. Please find attached a screenshot as it should look. My Logos 8 layout does not have the "Exegetical Guide" tab on the left and the "Text Comparison" box below the "Information" box. My layout also only displays 3 Bibles and not 5.

Can someone please advise on how to get it like on the tutorial?

Thanks. Deon

Hi Deon

This looks similar to what we discussed in https://community.logos.com/forums/p/190118/1096185.aspx#1096185 

Are those ideas not working here?

Hi Graham.

Unfortunately not. Is there a way to change all my settings to default? Can you duplicate the layout as above? I think my Logos-settings are messed up.

Shalom Deon!

Your settings are not messed up. I am seeing the same thing and I am just as flabbergasted as you are. If my memory is not playing tricks on me there used to be five Bibles. I have no idea when these default settings were changed.

However, if you follow Graham's instructions in the other thread you can restore the situation as shown in the video. Just open the same layout as in the screenshot (i.e. add the exegetical guide, two extra Bibles, and the text comparison window), then go to the Layouts menu, search for Passage Study under "Home Page Layouts" and click <Replace with current layout>.

Thank you very much. I am so relieved. When I go to may layout, the option "Restore Default Layout" is greyed out, which to me means that the current layout is the default one. Thank you for putting my worries aside.

Thanks again.

I believe, but am not sure, that the default was changed from 5-3 in Logos 8.1

Graham,

it looks like Logos changed the default layout since that video tutorial. I changed mine accordingly.

Thanks again.

It seems like that.
