Does anyone know how to create a Bible milestone (in a "Bible" personal book) for the Letter/Epistle of Jeremiah? I've tried @Bible links with LJe 1, LJe1, LJe 1:1, LetJer 1, Baruch 6:1, and others, but the link still is not properly processed by the Personal Book Builder. Every other book (including apocryphal books) works except this one. Note the links even work here in the forum, but Logos just won't process them as a @Bible milestone tag.

Thanks!

The problem is the different ways in which this letter is referred to. If you look at this page, you'll see the problem: http://wiki.logos.com/Bible_Verse_Maps#Letter_of_Jeremiah

The standard Bible datatype considers the first chapter of the letter to be chapter 6 (as do most English Bibles, such as the RSV/NRSV). So you'd need to type your reference as LetJer 6, not LetJer 1.

If your PB includes a lot of references like this, you may want to consider using a different Bible datatype that aligns more closely with your own usage.
