Ken Avery:

Is there a way to show the Interlinear text of the translated and original language side by side when doing Text Comparison?


i"m not 100% sure of what you are asking, but does this come close? To create this I put the three translations in side by side panes, linked them all with "A" and set sympathetic highlighting to yes. Highlighting text in one translation/text highlights the corresponding text in the other.



I know what your talking about know I think. When you first run a text comparison it is set to "auto" which means Logos determines if you want verses on top of each other or side by side. If the pane is too narrow they are on top of each other, if it is wider they are side by side. Drag the comparison tab to the Bottom Middle. The blue section should span allong the bottom of the screen. Drop it there and they should go side by side. You can also force it to go vertical or horizontal. See below picture. The easiest way is to hover over the passage you want to compare in a translation and press F7.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."
