I just ran into something that I would like to be able to see in all my pop up Bible Ref.

As you can see in the screen shot I have the Spanish RV 95 open and have clicked on one of the note links (i) and the result is when I hover the mouse pointer over the verse refrence 1 cor 11.2 it pops up both the RVA and ESV text.

This I like,Big Smile

Is there a way to set Logos4 to pop up and show two difrent versions of the text (instead of just one, the perfered bible text) ?

 

Does any one know how to set up Logos4  to do this?

Unfortunately not. This only works if resources have been tagged in a particular way, and most have not. You can, however, press F7 whilst hovering over the Bible reference, which will achieve something very similar.

I like it too. It would be great to be able to see both the original language and a translation at the same time. Please write a suggestion in the Suggestions forum, and I'll vote for it.

F7 will will show your highest prioritised Bibles. Perhaps you can prioritise an original languages testament without causing other Logos features to work in ways you don't want.

Yes, it will. But using F7 takes... what? 10 times?  longer than a simple popup. Moving the cursor over links as you read is doable; opening and closing TC for each link is not.

Doubtful.

You don't need to open and close TC. Just press F7 whilst your cursor is hovering over a link, and popup showing one version will disappear and be replaced by a pop-up showing multiple versions (see the screenshot above).

Yes, but a) it doesn't close again when I move the cursor away from the link, b) it doesn't change content when I move the cursor to another link, and c) it's so big it covers the next 2-10 links or so. So I do have to open and close it for each separate link. For popups I don't have to press or click, open or close, anything; I just have to move the mouse around a little.

This feature would be especially useful for reading grammar books, allowing to view both the original text and a translation. Could we somehow get this the TO-DO list?

F7 comparison can show verses in original text and translations. Hover mouse over Bible reference in grammar resource (pop-up shows verse(s) in one Bible), then press F7 to show Top five highest prioritized Bibles, which can include original language plus translations.  Logos 7.2 screen shot shows Ecclesiastes 1:9 in original Hebrew plus four translations (one is LXX Greek) from a Bible reference in a Hebrew grammar:

FYI: Logos 4 and 5 are no longer supported => https://www.logos.com/support/free-support
