I've always wished Logos/Verbum provide an option (perhaps under Visual Filters) to hide the scriptural references listed within parentheses in books. Some books have a lot of Bible references which makes it hard to follow the train of thought visually and audibly.

To me, this would have made for a smoother reading experience, especially when using the Read Aloud feature to listen to the book while driving and thinking through the content written by the author. I would like to propose such an optional feature for both the desktop app and the mobile app (probably the web app also).

Does anyone else find such a feature useful? If there's enough interest, I'll write up a Feedback request.

I like your idea. I agree for audible, the references would be numbing.

Myself, I despise the arrows pointing to upper-case topics buried in the text. I'm surprised they're not neon and flashing. Las Vegas style. Eerdman's Encylopedia of Ancient etc etc.

Your VF could be sort of a Readers Edition for monographs, or similar.

I just doubt any self-respecting author would agree?

Yes

Meanwhile, Jesus kept on growing wiser and more mature, and in favor with God and his fellow man.

Not something I'd be apt to use but seems essential for the read aloud feature.
