i don't know if this has been reported yet (too many PB post & could not find one), but my PB Bible is not showing up in L4's Text Compare. It allows me to add it to the Bible list, but the text under it does not show up. i have tried using fields and milestone, but haven't figured out the sequence to get TC to show it.

EDIT: i even remove the superscripted verse number and add Bible data links, but still doesn't show up in TC.

steve I am likely wrong but think you have a either or option:

 

1. {{field-on:Bible}} and {{field-off Bible}} need to be in each verse

Or

2. you only have one [[@Bible:BB cc:VV ]] milestone covering the whole range

Dominic,

Bohuslov has built Bibles and reported that you could mark using this field at the beginning and end of every chapter.

(above excerpt from this post http://community.logos.com/forums/p/36257/273366.aspx#273366)

Although i could be wrong. Perhaps someone from Logos can answer both of our questions.

Thanks

EDIT: also per your item #2, if you don't mark each verse with a milestone L4 cannot pick out individual verses when you use a verse range.

I was able to compare my test Bible with other Bibles with the syntax below. If I clicked in the area of the Bible milestone so that 'John 1:1-2' appeared in the active reference box, I was able to press F7 to display the Immediate Compare popup pane and then click in that pane to open Text Comparison with the same list of top Bibles, with my test Bible first. I was also able to open Text Comparison on its own, select my test Bible and another, and press Enter to see the verse reference (John 1:1-2) and passage text compared with the other Bible.

[[@Bible:John 1:1-2]]

{{field-on:Bible}} [[1 >> John 1:1]] In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. [[2 >> John 1:2]] He was in the beginning with God.{{field-off:Bible}}

Thank you Melissa!

i must have had some invisible formatting interfering with my milestones. i started a new test document and they are working now in TC.

I now was able to use Bible Field on and off in one Bible I just finished with plenty of notes and cross-references. I switch off Bible Field even before just one letter and on right after that. Each reference and non-Biblical text is excluded and all of it works great. When I switch Bible Text Only - I see just biblical text and verse numbers.

All of my PBB Bibles work in Text Comparison and F7 tool.

Just a few screen shots to illustrate what I just said in the previous post:

P.S. It is not final version of that Bible. Just wanted to show how the field on and off works.

1... The docx file:

2... Now the result in Logos:

3... And finally, Bible Text Only switched on:

I have googeled and searched the forums, but the help texts about FIELDS in personal books / Bibles are very poor and general.

Why can't we get a small bible book (Philippians eg) in correct docx format to learn about correct inclusion of headings, footnotes, alternative texts, linear or nested {{}} and so on...? 

It is tough to assign 1000+ chapter headings manually a WORD-format, not to speak of footnotes etc. When I enclose footnotes with {{field-on:footnote}} and {{field-off:footnote}}, it doesn't work.

I would help quite a bit in writing your own bible translations in WORD if we get some elaborated example text. Anyone prepared to publish one? Thank you!

Uwe,

welcome to the forums!

I think you should find docx-files for bibles in the files forum - after all, the thread you answered to was pretty old.

Welcome Big Smile

An example using the Book of Mark that also includes Red Letter would be helpful.

Another thread has several Bible examples => Some PBB Bibles for you to play around with ?

For footnotes, have not needed field-on and field-off for footnotes inserted into docx file.

Have you read the wiki http://wiki.logos.com/Personal_Books#Create_the_book which has a link to http://wiki.logos.com/Adding_Footnotes_to_your_PB ?
