My computer defaulted to my top 5 bible choices. Can I add more than 5 bibles, like Wordsearch can?

Hi Jerry ... welcome!

https://wiki.logos.com/Text_Comparison

I have over 50 in mine, sorted by translation date (using mytag from my library).

How in the world do you manage a window popping up with 50 translations in it? I could see that many in the preferred list, but not the Text Comparison. I presume that means it is never in columns.....

Is there a way for the Text Comparison tool to have different translations depending on the Layout that is open? I could easily see wanting different translations to compare when I'm studying a passage then when I'm using Logos for devotional reading, as an example.

Another example: We've two pastors that primary cover the preaching. One uses the ESV and the other the NASB. I could see establishing separate Layouts for each where the Text Comparison tool uses the corresponding as the primary version against which comparisons are made.

Richard Ogg:
Is there a way

You're right ... it's in a vertical. My chrono-ordering allows watching how the english meaning-matching shifts, over 400 or so years (very similar to wave-theory).

Regarding different TCs, layouts remember a specific instance's text reference and selected Bibles. So, even in one layout, you can have multiple TCs. In my case, I have an english series, a greek series, and a latin. Very efficient.

The big english one takes a while to load (older pc but ssd).

Welcome Big Smile

One way is selecting specific Bibles (can drag into desired order: e.g. Textus Receptus English Translations)

1611 NCPB => The New Cambridge Paragraph Bible with the Apocrypha, rev. ed. (NCPB) description includes Blog link => https://blog.logos.com/2017/06/youve-probably-never-seen-real-king-james-version/

Another way is selecting a Collection. Screen shot shows Bibles in alphabetical order, which is not apparent due to default short titles (Interlinear needs Internet: currently know of 19 Bibles enabled for Interlinear Text Comparison):

My collection "Bible Compare Interlinear" uses MyTag:InterlinearTextComparison
