Does anyone know if there is a Mac keyboard shortcut which enables one to change the bible passage that you are viewing without using a mouse or trackpad whilst in Reading Mode?

In other words I would like to move the cursor to the box where you can type the bible passage. I can navigate to this using the Tab key when not in Reading View, but can't seem to find a way to do this when in Reading View. Is this possible?

For example I am in Reading View and using the space bar to read further through the text, then I decide to look up another passage - I can't seem to do this without using the trackpad to manually click on the box.

I can look up a passage and leave the cursor in the bible passage box, (and then theoretically move to another passage) - but I can only read the page viewed, I can't read a longer section and then change the bible passage without using the trackpad.

Any help much appreciated.

Ctrl+G

There's a list in help

EDIT: Tab works for me in reading view. Opens to the reference box to type a ref or press ESC to close.

Thanks for suggesting this Randy.

Though sadly this suggestion doesn't work on a Mac.

The onboard Logos Help file also includes keyboard shortcuts for Mac. In this case, it's CMD+G.

Oops. Sorry, I didn't notice this was a Mac question.

I don't see that one in the Help file. The list of Mac shortcuts is considerably shorter than for PC. About 122 for PC vs 88 for Mac.

Thanks for this suggestion Adam.

⌘G does work on Logos Mac to navigate to the bible reference box.

However this functionality does not work when one is Reading View. 

What I am after is a way to navigate to the bible reference box whilst in Reading View by keyboard entry. Perhaps this is not possible, and if so it would be great if this functionality could be included in a future update.

Many thanks.

⌘G works for me in Reading View. I tested using NIV and UBS4, on 7.13 (alpha, but that shouldn't make a difference in this case), OS X 10.12.

Can you provide more specifics on the resource, Logos version, and OS you are using?

Good to hear that it works for you Adam - so it must be something my end...

After more experimentation I think it is because I had too many panels open simultaneously.

Once I started with a fresh layout and a smaller number of panels  ⌘G  began to work as expected - great!

Now that I can enter the passage via the keyboard - is there another keyboard shortcut to return the focus back to the bible text? This is so that I can then work through the text using the space bar / cursor key again - or do I have to use the trackpad in order to bring the focus back to the bible text?

The ideal would be to be able to chose the passage from the keyboard, and then read on from that point without having to use the trackpad at all. Is this possible?
