Hello:

I'm reading a Spanish book and citations are like Ez 11,19-20, for chapter 11, verses 19 to 20 . But the reference scanner parses it as chapters 11, and 19 to 20. Is it possible to configure the format?

Thanks.

It depends. Unfortunately, at the moment the format of references is tied to the UI language of the app, which in the case of Android is tied to the UI language of the phone, which means my reference scanner will only understand a German format (looking like the Spanish one you mentioned) but not the US one with the colon in it. I understand that Apple users are able to change the UI language on a per-app basis, so if you are using e.g. your iPhone, let Logos run as Spanish and it should detect Spanish references.  

It would be nice if the scanner could be configured or even better had intelligent logic to understand multiple formats by itself.

Yes, please! A simple button to change language just for the the reference scanner would already help a lot.

Thank you. My UI (both in Android and in the App) are Spanish. Since the German version of the App recognizes the format stated above, it seems there is some issue with languages.
