But if you're curious, this is what it looks like.

Did you run this on 1:1? If so, a bug has not been fixed; if not, the bug has spread like a virus.

1:1 of what book?

Any book - it causes the river to show no variation in the text while the spray chart shows variation.

Whenever I run it on any one verse, it shows no variation in the river but the spray chart shows variation. Perhaps that is by design? The granularity of the river must be one verse at a time. It's not a visual tool I've ever found particularly useful anyway, so I'm not too concerned about it and am not going to champion a fix for this. But if it's a bug, I hope it's been reported, and from what you said before, I trust it has.

I cannot do a text compare at all. I watched the tutorial and got my floating window but no "A" icons to enable me to show differences or show base text.

Is this feature only available in certain versions of Logos 4 (ie: like Plantinum, etc.) I have the Leaders version.  Or could it be the Bibles I am comparing (NIV, KJV,Message,HCSB,NASB95)

Richard DeRuiter:
Then select that collection from the drop-down list on the second line of the tab (just under the passage input box).

Richard, which "tab" are you reffering to?

Thanks, David

EDIT: I figured this out...please ignore the above entry.

I have the Leaders version.

Someone commented earlier in this thread that this feature is only available in Original Language and above.

Sorry, but I can't locate Compare Versions anywhere. How do I locate it?

Plus, I want to be able to compare all my Spanish versions...how would that happen? Thanks.

It's called Text Comparison under tools (only available in Original Languages and up)

Rosie...

Is this capture from the 4.0c beta, because my 4.0b (Portfolio) doesn't include it as a setting option.  I get Compare Versions...Bibles: and View:  Thank you.

Nope, I posted that on January 14, and 4.0b wasn't even in Beta yet, let alone 4.0c. So that was probably from 4.0a SR-3, judging by the dates in the release notes. I've usually always been up-to-date with the latest release. However when I just tried it now (in 4.0c Beta 1), it doesn't have all the options it had back then. This is what I see now:

I don't recall them saying anything about removing part of the functionality of this feature, so I'm puzzled.

What is interesting is that in the 3D mode which gives the numeric statistics, 4.0b does not provide the statistics on a single verse ... while the math may prevent the river map diagram the raw data should be available.
