In Logos 3.x I was able to develop a Psalm a Day reading plan through the BRP.  The Data for the Reference field looked like below and produced a plan when set for 150 days that gave an entire Psalm for each day.  When I attempt to do this in Logos4, I get the Psalms broken up, even though I set the beginning date and end date at 150 days. . .

The Daily Proverb option also is MIA here. . .

Is Logos4 able to offer this functionality?  There must be a way to make this work in Logos4 as well, right development team?  Without this functionality  the BRP loses 1/2 of my Bible Readings per day  :-(

Thanksin advance for your feedback, insights and help here.

Blessings and a Happy Advent and Christmas Season to All.

At the moment David, this isn't possible.  I am hoping that there will be some additional development in the reading module as well.

One of the issues is extra-biblical pericope's.  Now that L4 enables you to set up a reading plan for that New Commentary, or Pastoral book you bought  as well as the Bible, there is a difficulty introduced between versification and chapter divides.  I don't believe this problem is insurmountable.

The good news is that I have seen the programmers repeatedly jump on issues of this type and fix them.  Threads like this go a long way since the programmers also read them. 

I can almost hear one of them saying, "Oh, I know how to code that up right quick...."  Well I can dream can't I?

Hmm Sarcasm is my love language. Obviously I love you.

I too would really like to see a "chapter per day" or "do not split between chapters" option in the L4 reading plan. Thanks.

I, too, am hoping this functionality will be restored.

This may have been a "quirk" in L3, but when I manually entered ranges like this in L3, a day's reading would not go to the next item in the set.

Example: If I entered "Psalm 1; Psalm 2; Psalm 3; Psalm 4" as my range, Psalm 1 might be split up into multiple days, but the reading would only include Psalm 1, not Psalm 2.

With the current setup, there is no guarantee that I will read one Psalm or even that the Psalms will be completed. One day in my attempt to replicate my old Psalms reading plan in L4 has "Psalm 6:title-7:8" with the rest of Psalm 7 combined with Psalm 8 the next day.

I know for some reading plans (chronological, for instance), it might make more sense to try to even out the amount of text to read each day, but it would be nice if there was an option to split sections according to the user-entered range -- the L3 behavior. For my plan, that would mean that one day I'm only meditating on 2 verses (Ps 117), then two days later on 176 verses (or split Ps 119 into 22 sections, like I did in my L3 plan), but that makes more sense for me for the Psalms.

The best part of Logos 3 BRP was  the Psalm-a-day and my chapter of Proverbs each day reading plans.  Then I could break down the rest of scripture as I saw fit as well. . . Maybe one day. . .

I also recall that Logos 3 allowed for pericope boundaries or chapter boundaries when setting up the reading plan.  Please Logos give us back these options. . .

Blessings to All

Hmmm. . .  interesting note dept:

When I set up my OT and NT reading plans -- all breaks are chapter breaks not pericope breaks.  I now have a Proverbs BRP that breaks on chapters as well -- wonder why this doesn't work with Psalms???

Yes, I would love the Proverbs-Psalms chapter a day setup in L4 BRP. Further, it would be even more WONDERFUL to add the Proverbs-Psalms  repeatable sequence to my BRP in addition to and integrated with my  chronological daily reading plan.

This is stimulated by my wife reading Proverbs-Psalms daily in a repetitive mode in a paper book version because this in not yet available on the Mac Bible Reading Plan that we have discovered.

Perhaps the Logos team might comment on their response to these comments on this very attractive feature of Logos 4 not only for us who have been Logos fans for a while, but also as an attraction to pull in new Logos users since daily Bible reading is such a common activity to the masses of Christians.  Cool
