There's probably no way to set this up, but is there a way to designate a different Preferred Bible for different areas of the program? For example, use one that shows up in reports, a different one that launches when I open my daily devotional, etc.?

Thanks!

Indirectly only. Open a bible and select Send hyperlinks here from its menu. Popups will still revert to your Prioritised bible.

That's what I thought. Forgot about Send Hyperlinks Here. Good idea for some stuff I need!

Thanks!

Daily devotional option is advanced prioritization.  Wiki has => http://wiki.logos.com/Prioritizing

Interesting. Would that work when launching the Daily Devotional from the Home page where it opens the devotional and Bible?

Yes, by clicking calendar day to open devotional, then click verse to open Bible that has advanced prioritization for use in calendar devotion. 

Note: clicking devotion name causes highest prioritized Bible to open along with calendar devotion.

OK so still clicking on devotional name on home page would open preferred Bible and devotional, not the other Bible, correct?

Peace, Nathan!           *smile*

             Just beginning to think about your need ....              How about a specially created parallel resources collection of some especially "esteemed" or "desired"  translations that you could access easily using parallel resources .......            just tried it for myself as an experiment ... opened one of my devotionals ... it took me to ESV ... then I used "parallel resources" to see how Eugene Peterson's "The Message" handled the passage ....

Philippians 4:  4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. 5 Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand..........

Good idea. I'm trying that now, and it does work. It's an extra step, but it works.

I've never really thought about using different translations for different aspects of the software until just recently when I started trying something. :-)

Thanks!

Correct.

Guide Templates can be customized with different Bible settings: e.g. My Bible Word Study has three Greek Words:
