In L5 Mac (I havent tested this on Windows yet), the first day of a reading plan has too little and the last day has too much.

Steps to repeat:

Create a reading plan to read a single book of the Bible each day for X sessions, where X > 2.

For example, create a reading plan for 5 sessions with the passage set to "ga,ga,ga,ga,ga". This should give you all 6 chapters of Galatians once a day for 5 days. Instead, you get Ga 1-5 for day 1, Ga 6, 1-5 for days 2-4 and Ga 6, 1-6 for day 5. If you try it with a larger book, like John it is even worse.

This worked as expected in early versions of L4, but not in later ones. I was hoping it'd be fixed for L5, but it is still not working.

Also, the frequency selector is displaying a unicode escape sequence next to each: "\U2026".

Hi Joshua

It behaves the same way on Windows

I did some additional testing on this. There is the same issues when sessions=2, so if the number of sessions is more than 1 it will have probs.

It depends on the book. Fails as described also for John, Jude, Romans, and Genesis, but works fine for James, Colossians, and Ephesians (these are the only ones I've tested).

So, number of verses does not seem to matter because it fails for small number (Jude) and large (John), though I have not seen it work correctly on a bigger book.

It also seems that the larger the book, the more skewed it is. For example, if I create a 2 day reading plan to read Genesis twice, I will be reading Genesis 1-42 on day 1 and Genesis 43-50, Genesis 1-50 on day 2:
