I know, sarcastic, and acerbic just in case.

But for goodness sakes, how hard can it be? I think my first mobile Bibles were 15 years ago, and they uniformly are able to match verses (link).

I'm on latest ios13 and latest Logos app. Two Bibles linked (top-NETS; bottom LES). And they just can't seem to find the same verse. Image after top is paged forward (bottom ignores):

Now, if I move the bottom to catch up, the top moves backward (oh thanks). And if I move the top backwards, the bottom always follows (works). Here's another forward page-turn:

And to show linked:

By the by, in the single-linking, an OT-only will show a blank page, when an NT-only leads, rather than just ignore no-match and maintain its view.

Hi Denise

I’ve just tried this and they link correctly for me - iPad and same versions of ios and apps as you mention.

Are you online when doing this? I don’t see why it should make a difference but thought I should check!

No, off-line. I'm also paging, not scrolling.

It doesn't surprise me, it works for you. Else, no one uses the app (or doesn't link).

I'm guessing they assume a larger ipad (I'm a mini). I say that because, it's incorrect after correct, suggesting they're calculating forward wrong (and not checking if correct).

As above, they link correctly going backward; just not forward. So, if it was my code, I'd see what the forward calculation is.

Been this way for years.

I get this on my 12.9 iPad Pro. I gave up on it in the end

Hi Denise,

I notice that you also have two split panels with links on all four resources.  In the desktop app, we can select A, B, C, etc.  The mobile app used to be able to set up linking between multiple resource sets.  (At least I remember the ability to link two resources in the same panel without involving other panels.)  This allows a person to have one split panel focused on Romans and a second split panel focused on Deuteronomy.  The desktop analog would be using link set A and link set B.

The current mobile app on iPad seems to only allow one inclusive link set group.  Is there a way to run multiply linked groups on the mobile app?
