When I put a verse in the Passage Box, a preset layout appears.  I would like to modify that layout and have the modified layout appear every time I use the Passage Box.  Is that possible?

Hi Mauricio - and welcome to the forums

Currently Logos does not display the layout name - people have asked for this but no commitment from Logos to deliver this capability

Hi

Apologies - I missed your question when responding to Mauricio.

E Hatch:

When one uses the Passage Box, the layout which appears is the preset one to which you refer. This can't be modified.

However, what you can do is - instead of using the Passage Box - run your own Passage Guides or Exegetical guides directly from the passage you are interested in from any Bible. For examples of how to do this please see http://wiki.logos.com/Passage_Guide

Steve Clark - one of the regular forum contributors - has come up with a way to generate a floating layout of your design as documented at http://wiki.logos.com/Creating_your_own_Custom_Go_Box. This provides a lot of flexibility and capability but involves some work.

Hope this helps - but please post back if you still have questions

Graham

I found a work around that I like that seemed easier to me.  It's new, so I may have to make modifications.  I constructed the layout the way I wanted it to be.  I then linked all the various parts so that they would work together.  I then saved the layout.  Now what I can do is open the saved layout.  When I put the Bible text into either the Bible section, passage guide or exegetical guide, all the rest immediately go to that text, just as if I had typed it into the Passage Box.  The process is still the same, except the steps are reversed.  Instead of typing the verse in the Passage Box and then having a layout appear, I choose the layout and then put the passage into the layout.  I can see some limitations with this process, but it was quick and should meet my needs.  I tried the link you sent me to, but had unfavorable results and it was much more complicated.

Possible modification idea: add a Bible in a different link set with send hyperlinks here, which allows a verse reference to be clicked that changes location in hyperlinked resource without causing other linked items (passage guide, exegetical guide, other Bibles to jump to new verse).

Wiki has => Send Hyperlinks here
