I found this in help but it was no help


Parallel Gospel Reader Interactive
Displays a parallel view of the synoptic gospels (plus sometimes John), based on the synopses and parallels already shipped as resources (eg, Aland’s Synopsis). Allows user to select their preferred translation to read the text in, allows gospel columns to be hidden or shown at will, and allows the entire synopsis to be reordered by one of the gospels at will (eg, “I want to see only Matthew and Mark, in Markan order”).

Anyone have this feature and if yes can you do some screen copying and pasting to show us how it works please?  I have Baptist Silver 6.0 and cannot find it.  Sigh (and thanks).

I'm sorry to inform you that you don't have that interactive!

Here are some optional ways to get it:

This is not in Silver.

It is in Gold or the Feature Crossgrade

Thanks everyone.  I think that the omission of it in Silver Baptist 6.0 is:

  • Bogus
  • Silly
  • Sad
  • Ridiculous
  • Ludicrous
  • Jaw-dropping
  • Shocking
  • Lame
  • Unbelievable

I am pretty sure if I add the Chaplains Library I can get this $5.95 feature added.  Course I can always do this too, right?

https://www.logos.com/product/45041/logos-6-feature-crossgrade that looks cheap enough and may add some functionality.
I really am stunned and surprised this very basic functionality is not available in every base package, aren't you?

Sigh.

This was first time I tested this feature. It seems to work with some versions like ESV and USB4, but not with the NET Bible.

Long time ago I made my own parallel gospel set as a pseudoscholarly exercise and it would be nice if the user could import and use own divisions for the texts

I just downloaded the cross grade feature set for less than $25 with my student discount....it left out something called COMMANDMENTS OF THE LAW.  I will post a separate thread on that one next.

I know it is frustrating but all the information I had seen was pretty clear to get all new features you needed to upgrade to gold or above.

Well, Josh, I thought all these tools you're discussing were Logos Now.  Silver and gold have I none ... but a feature crossgrade have I? Indeed.  I forgot all about these. 

So I tried out the gospel parallels.  Worked great until I tried out greek.  Then my CPU went into hyperdrive (100%). I tried an english again.  It shifted down tp 27% and sat there. Hmmm ... checked the Logos.exe threads involved ... clr.dll copypdb .... over and over.

I'll stick with the good book.  Good luck with your silver and maybe gold.

You realize that you can make your own PB parallels with dynamic text so that the translation can be varied?

I havem't double checked but I believe that the Commandments of the Law is a Logos Now feature. I know it was added well after the initial release of L6

Perhaps with this information?
