Hello.

I already got the NA28 with the critical apparatus. Now I wonder if It's compatible with Bruce Metzger's NT Commentary -> https://www.logos.com/product/2190/a-textual-commentary-on-the-greek-new-testament

or do I have to set up something?

Buy away! Good choice.

Like any commentary and text, you link the two resources (upper-left book cover, when a resource is opened). And Metzger is looking at an older NA/UBS, but pretty much the same.

thanks for the response

but I didn't understand.. will it connect to my NA28? Because on Metzgers Commentary's it only says NA27. 

"It also makes a great companion to the German Bible Society Bundle, which contains the critical apparatus of the NA27 Novum Testamentum Graece"

yes it will, since both resources use bible milestones as index

See NA28, Metzger and the NA 28 apparatus linked:

thank you! :-)

btw a quick question since you use the same NA28 that I do. For example, in John 1,1 when it says "In the beginning" in greek, there is displayed some white pen with an information that says: "So and so many people marked this". What is that? I have another NA28 Edition (a blue cover book, not the black one on your display), and there this pen is not displayed. I dont even know the difference between those 2 NA28's that I got. I got them both from the German Silver Basic Pack which i bought in May 2017.

It is called "Popular Highlights". This information is only available when more than a (small) minimum number of users highlighted the same text - I think it was first introduced by Amazon Kindle. If it shows, it sometimes gives a feeling like taking a well-used university textbook into your hands: it can help you as generations of other students already marked up all relevant stuff, so you can fly over and just take in the 'abstract' - or at least you feel a comradery when seeing this once in a while: you're not alone in having to work this through. But it might get overwhelming, and disturb your own interaction with the text (some people even like to disable their own highlights to get a "fresh" look at the text - one more advantage of electronic books in Logos as opposed to paper).

You can turn it on/off for a specific resource or for all resources where it might apply.
