Hello Bohuslav,

I am not good in formulas, can you give me these to change Gen 1:1 in form required by PBB?

Or is there a place to look this up? I have some Dutch Bibles here I want to convert for personal use :-)

Hans

P.S. Of is er een Nederlander die al een bewerkte tekst heeft? Zeer aanbevolen! (= Dutch)

if its on the WWW David post a link, without looking at PDF cant offer much help...

However if you can get it output in plain text with 1 verse per line in:

BOOK CH:VS TEXT  format, then  I have a import tool, and will be happy to run it though for you.

Has LOTS of non Bible text included such as ANNOTATIONS and comments on BOTH sides of the Bible text
and is under copyright as of 1998 or so[I will not be able to pass it around]
Getting it in to BOOK CH:VS TEXT  format is almost as difficult as copy paste each verse [but I want it - even if I need to do it one chapter at a time]

I've found another source that is not under copyright and have most of the book of Genesis done as a test. Unfortunately, it's not my highest priority at the moment but if Logos doesn't do the notes, I will get around to it.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

Hello Hans,

All the syntax needed for the PBB building is in the help file under Personal Books heading. Also you can find a lot of help in Wiki. The formulas to make a needed syntax from the reference depends on the tool you use. In MS Word it is one way and you can see some help in the FIND and REPLACE tool under advanced options (or how it is called, I use Czech Office).

Most changes I usually do by saving document as HTML and use PSPad editor to do it. The formula for changing a simple reference to the needed syntax would be: <p>([a-zA-Z123]+ \d+:(\d+)) replaced with <p>[[@Bible:$1]]$2   if the reference starts with a simple paragraph beginning. This way you can also create Bible books devisions and also chapters, just before any reference 1:1 you add the name of the book taken automatically from the reference and also chapter taken from each reference \d+:1 (each first verse starts a new chapter obviously.)

I think ideal would be to learn how to do all this changes directly in MS Word. It has a lot of options in the FIND and REPLACE tool. The best would be to use makros in MS Word. If somebody would make those, it can be of great help.

Bohuslav

If I ever get to the ""notes"" I think I will put them in a Commentary [some of the study Bibles are split into two files] [But my current plans are to do just the Bible text chapters as I need them in my personal study - Was using copy from the PDF and paste into Word - Now do into PB and save for any latter use - (that is don't wait for me)]  [And this text does not seem to be on anyones 'high priority' list]      [Re Copyrights - the PDF I found on the web may not have permission to be there - the copyright holder was selling it and it looks like others just posted it - have not had contact with the copyright holder in two years or so]      And thanks to all that have posted sample docx files.  They have gotten others up and creeping. [the words used are normally up and running but at the speed we are going creeping is a better fit]

Mark Barnes:

A few years ago I wrote a script that converted various public domain Bibles into a MySQL database. Today, I wrote a script which converted them from MySQL into Logos PBB format. Most of them crash the compiler, but the documents below compiled successfully for me in Logos. (Although not all the Bibles are in English, I'm afraid all the book names are in English.)

Apart from adding links and milestones, no formatting has been added at all. They'd need tidying up to be useful. But you might like to play around with them, and at least it demonstrates how Bible links and Bible milestones work. I'll add more Bibles to this messages/thread as I test them.

 

Mark, can Bibles with alternate versification be produced in their native versification instead of using a workaround to modify or 'squeeze' the texts into a standard 'English' (KJV) versification? In particular, can deutercanonical context be included?  If so, what versification schemes are supported?

Before Mark answers your questions I would suggest you try to use [[@BibleNAB:Genesis 1:1]] mapping. I used it for my Bible with the deuterocanonical books and it worked quite well. I had to do some adjustments though in a few places. Logos has about 80 mapping systems. It would be great if we can get access to that information. I just experiment till I get desired results. In any Bible when you right click any word and go to Reference and use Search this Resource command, you will see the Bible mapping version in the search line:

Bohuslav, thanks for that info.  If there are about 80 mapping systems, there may well be one that will come close to what I need.  I'd rather wait to see a comparison of the details of these mappings, though, before experimenting, as the main goal of my project (www.anbioblanaofa.org) is already completed and I don't have much time to work on additional formats (Logos) at present.

I understand. We need to hear from Logos on this however.

I agree. 

It would be really great if we were able to produce PBB Bibles (with publisher's permission, or from public domain), and share them.  I wonder if this is something that Logos has envisioned when preparing the PBB feature, or whether it is something that has been found to be possible by users?  In any case, it would be great to have some guidance that we could use, even if PBB was/is not directly or originally intended for this purpose.

Who should we contact to request more information?  Or is it likely that someone from Logos pick up on this thread and reply?

Thank you!

salut Geroge, 

Imi poți spune te rog cum ai creat acest document cu Biblia? Vreau să creez si eu unul cu un Dictionar din Pradis, și nu imi apare cuprinsul. 

Mersi
