First, I really like the Custom Home Page layouts for Bibles. It works well, and removes the annoyance of having unnecessary panes opening every time you tackle your Reading Plan. 

My difficulty is that I have two English ReadingPlans (OT & Psalms) and a Greek Reading Plan (NA28). I have NA28 & BHS set up as a series, and have set up a layout with the NIV2011 on the left of the pane and my NA28/BHS series on the right so that I've always got the original-language text showing (see below).

This works fine for my English Bible readings (OT & Psalms). For my Greek reading, however, it doesn't work well. As I'm reading using the layout in the image above, if I scroll the Greek text (which is what I'm reading) the English text doesn't scroll along with it. What would be really helpful for me would be if I could have Custom layouts for each language (English, Greek, Hebrew) so that my Greek reading opened with the Greek text in the "driving seat" of the layout, and my English Bible Reading opened with English there (as above). 

I do recognise this is a very minor and slightly nit-picking request, but it would certainly make the user experience of this feature somewhat smoother.

Thanks for the suggestion.

As a workaround for now, you could set a common custom series on NA28 and BHS. Then put one of those in a separate panel from NIV2011. Then put both panels into a common link set. Then scrolling will be linked, and it will automatically switch back and forth between NA28 and BHS as needed.

Thank you - I was wondering about doing that, so I'll give it a go.
