I sometimes find that I would like to create my own cross-references, without tying them to a note file. For example, in the ESV Titus 1:15 alludes to Psalm 18:26, but does not directly reference it.

Is there a way to create cross-references so that they show up when I hover the curser over the cross-reference letter in the text?

No. But you could create a Highlight style that mimics a cross-reference letter and use its Labeling feature for the cross-reference.

I often desire to create my own cross references without having to use the cumbersome note method.

Dave, would you elaborate on how your proposed method would work.

Thanks

It uses highlights, which by default use the cumbersome note method. Sad

The older suggestions that came up when something like this was requested was to reference folks to one of the big cross-reference resources. I haven't seen anything that would change that, though there are some people (like Dave) creative enough that it wouldn't surprise me if the answer has improved.

My thanks to the various MVPs. Without them Logos would have died early. They were the only real help available.

Except you don't have to use the cumbersome note!

  • Create a highlight e.g. Cross Reference
  • Use Text Before in Insert Text
  • Tick Prompt to enter attributes for the label
  • Choose Bible Reference for the Value Type.

You can add multiple Reference's when using your CR highlight, but the reference is "read only" - alas!
