I am also having that problem. Also I'm having some issues with dark mode. When the update bar appears, it comes up as an unreadable yellow bar with white text. See below.

I am also having issue with the day automatically changing to today. Also, can we do something about the unreadable yellow bar with white text.

Joseph Luna:

I'm having all kinds of problems in trying to reset my reading program to a different translation which by the way, I already started a few months ago. No matter what I try to do, it reverts to today. it is very frustrating. 

Hi Joseph,

We are working on fixing this issue. Thanks for letting us know about it.

Hi. In the pretty new Logos 9, the readings calendar is not shown properly in Mac. Actually, it is not shown at all.

I was wondering if the Logos Help documentation on reading plans could be updated.  My post was a long one so I posted it in a different thread.

I love the new reading plan update. Finally, I can put something meaningful into the reading plan the way I design it. Thank you. 

I have created a past reading plan into a note and that worked fine, however, I like the reading plan update and wonder is there a way to import a reading plan into Logos 9? I don't want to retype it all over again, as it is about 4 bible chapters a day, all year. (LIFE Journal Reading Plan).

How could the two wiki's be updated i.e. what needs to be clearer?

Wiki (Advanced): https://wiki.logos.com/reading_plans 

Wiki (Basic): https://wiki.logos.com/Reading_Plan_$28Basics$29

To reflect the questions I asked in the linked post.  I know wiki is a free guide but I really feel that Logos needs to explain how better to build your own custom reading plans and/or layout what is possible and what is not.  There are some great reading plan examples in the advanced section but I had difficulty figuring out how to do one.  The answers were not obvious to me but my bulb is dimming as life moves on

Most of your questions are answered in the Basic Wiki:

1. concerns a Plan from Todd Chipman, where you had the basic idea for use of |  to indicate the readings that had to occur together, but it is a demanding task to input all the readings as he gives them.

2.Kevin answered that quite well i.e. you enter the readings in the sequence given, but you can't guarantee they will be read on the same day as Todd's plan. If you set the plan to read every day except Sunday for one year, you could get close. But it is a daunting plan to try to emulate. The wiki gives you the basics and you have to experiment to see what works.                                                                                                                                                                                      

3. You enter passages as described in the wiki i.e. in the box "New reference range". If you first typed the passages into an external document (a good idea!), copy it and paste into the "New reference range" box. A Passage List can't contain the  nuance of the pipe | character (Point 1).

4. The Basic wiki explains how to enter days in the week..

So you need to explain what was not clear in the Basic wiki

Mattillo:

How does the read later list work? There are no videos on it and all the training site does is mention it.

You can click on desktop and mobile but both those videos seem older and don't explain it.

From site:

Logos 9 introduces a new workflow for creating reading plans that is optimized for reading books chapter-by-chapter at your own pace. To access this new reading plan builder, select a resource in the Library, then click Start reading plan in the Library's information panel.

The Read Later list in the Logos mobile app allows you to create a queue of books you'd like to read in the future. In the Logos desktop application, you can find and manage books on your Read Later list via the tag #ReadLater.

Hey Matillo, I had the same question and couldn't find an answer in this thread. You probably already had your question answered elsewhere, but just in case others had the same question, I found the answer in this post:

"Read Later is currently only available on our mobile app. However, when you add something to the Read Later list on mobile, we add a special tag to that resource (#ReadLater). You can view what books have this tag on desktop by visiting the library and filtering down to that tag. You can also add that tag on desktop to any resource that you want to have show up in the Read Later list on mobile. 

If we hear from users that they enjoy the Read Later list on mobile, we'll likely bring it to desktop as well."
