It is very difficult to use the Logos NASB version when it does not show the paragraphs.  It's frustrating to have to pull my Ryrie to know when the author is starting a new train of thought.

Thanks,
Rik

My version 2008-02-14T19:30:58Z shows bold verse numbers in Windows.

Confirmed. In Bible Text Only with ESV or NAS95, no verse numbers are bold. I did not attempt this with any other versions, but I would guess that the paragraph indicators are missing there also.

In normal view, bold verse numbers indicate paragraphs in my Windows version, as per the Explanation of General Format.

I'm currently reading from the NASB95 in my Mac version, and the paragraphs show up in bold by verse number.  For example: Matthew 1:1 is in bold, Matthew 1:2 likewise is in bold, and again for Matthew 1:12. 

If you look at the way paragraphs are noted in the NIV, you'll see that they are shown several spaces to the left of the verses belonging to the paragraph.  (Different way of showing paragraphs)

I don't believe the paragraph notations in the NASB95 is a bug.  Seems clear enough (bold) in my copy.

Regards, Charles

I stand corrected.  In normal mode the paragraphs are defined.  In Bible Text Only they are not.  Unknowingly I've been in that mode as long as I can remember.  What is the purpose of removing paragraph definitions within this mode?  If this is intended, could a moderator please modify my subject line.  It should be noted that I had queried both the forums and FAQs without success prior to posting. 

Thanks for the help.

That is true in the Normal view mode, but in Bible Text Only, the paragraph indicators (bold text) does not appear. However, I discovered that this is not a bug in the Mac version, for the paragraphs are not indicated in the Windows version either.

This behavior seems intended, as the display in the Windows version has the same behavior. Apparently, Bible Text Only means just that; Bible text with no frills Smile

OK, I see that now.  It appears to me that Bible Text mode is designed for cut and paste - notice there are no cross references or footnotes.  I probably should use it instead of cut and paste from normal mode.

Thanks for pointing that out to me.

Regards.
