Was support for interlinear text ever added to Personal Book Builder?

For example, could one build an interlinear personal book of parallel passages from the synoptic gospels that are particularly close in their readings? Could one build a reverse interlinear personal book of one's own translation and the underlying original language (Greek or Hebrew) text? Could one study a passage from the Geneva Bible, the Bishop's Bible, and the KJV to discover which influenced the KJV more?

There is no interlinear support in Personal Books. You would have to know what Greek/Hebrew text was used for a Reverse Interlinear. Geneva and Bishop's may have been translated in part/whole from the Latin Vulgate (KJV was partly so). The Text Comparison tool would be useful to compare these translations, if the influence is the English language.

Hi, Dave! Thanks for your response.

The problem I've been having with the Text Comparison tool is that it only works for Bibles that have a reverse interlinear data set already. I was hoping there might be a workaround with a straight interlinear markup. But apparently there isn't one.

Thanks for taking the time to reply!
