I found an absolutely perfect one-year Bible reading plan developed by the EWTN Coming Home Network (http://www.chnetwork.org/free-resource-updated-version-of-our-read-the-bible-and-the-catechism-in-a-year-guide/), and I am looking for a way to (easily?) import this into Verbum 7. 

How can I format the data so that when I copy-and-paste the reference list into my reading plan it will end up something like this?

Day 1: Gen 1, Ps 1, Mt 1.1-17
Day 2: Gen 2, Ps 2, Mt 1.18-25
Day 3: Gen 3, Ps 3, Mt 2
Day 4: Gen 4, Ps 4, Mt 3
Day 5: Gen 5-6.8, Ps 5, Mt 4

I suspect that I may have to first create a passage list, and then create the reading plan from it. But I am not sure that this will give me the results I am looking for.

Has anyone been successful in doing a similar thing?

UPDATE

I did find within the Generate a Reading Plan module, a division named Old & New Testament, Psalms & Proverbs Each Session, that produces roughly the same results. Happily this plan does include the Apocryphal/Deuterocanonical books, so I am good using this for the upcoming new year.

I must admit, though, that I would love to see if there is a way to create a plan with more fine-grained control that will follow exactly the plan developed by the CH Network. Geeked

You may have seen that I linked this thread to Phil Gons request for additional plan suggestions.

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

To automatically create one that is even closer, generate an automatic reading plan for your preferred Catholic Bible using "Ge–Job; Pr–2 Mac | Mt–Re | Ps" (without the quotes) as the reading range. Smile

I really like this, however when I try to create the plan it passively complains. As you can see in the attached screenshot,

The reference range box is red and the Save button is greyed out. What am I doing wrong here?

In the NRSVCE, 2 Maccabees is placed with the historical books rather than at the end of the OT, as in the RSVCE (which I'm guessing Sine Nomine is using), so, for the NRSVCE, change "Pr-2 Mac" to "Pr-Mal" and it should work.

Yes, that did the trick! Big Smile

I did learn something new in this little exercise, namely that we 0se the pipe symbol (vertical bar) to separate the passages into the desired groupings. Geeked

Many thanks for all your help with this, and a very blessed new year for everyone!

Your guess was right.
