Good morning, everybody,

I often gather stuff from the Internet to incorporate into personal books. Sometimes that means I have multiple articles on one passage, and they aren't often in the same place within the starting document. Is there a way to format the book as a commentary and still get it to point to multiple spots in the book? Or would I need to save it as a different type of book (say, a devotional), so that I could get one book to display results that are under different headings?

Thank you!

Brian

Brian - I'm sorry, but you have lost me. Can you explain again? Can you give an example?

If you have multiple milestones** for one passage e.g Matt 5:11, and type the reference into the resource Find box it will show  e.g.

Matt 5:11

Matt 5:11

Matt 5:11

then you have to figure which instance you want!

This works for type Bible Commentary and Bible Notes, but the latter is a better description for your book.

 

** the milestone would look like [[@Bible:Matt 5:11]]
