Hi, I'm surprised that I can only get the NASB to format in separate verses instead of flowing in paragraphs. Is it me or is it the only way to display the NASB? My other Bibles can display in a paragraph style.

Bibles such as the KJV or NKJV will flow the way I want them to:

I do know about the Logos 6's option, "One Verse Per Line," but that is unchecked in my NASB window.

I like to work in NASB but I'm sure getting tired of its refusal to display two sequential verses back-to-back so it flows well for reading.

Thanks!

Greg

I don't use the NASB, so I went and checked. It's not just you...mine formats the same way.

My thanks to the various MVPs. Without them Logos would have died early. They were the only real help available.

Hi Greg- 

the NASB translation is officially "line by line," so it is presented this way in the text. There are copywrited editions in paragraph form, but logos hasn't produced those copies. If they did, it would be a different resource. I think it's unlikely logos would carry it.

That being said, the bold verse numbers do indicate a new paragraph. Yes

Thanks to all of you! I'll move forward knowing it's not just some crazy setting I haven't properly set.
I've used Logos for years but typically set my Bible views to 3-columns. In that mode, the NASB appears a little more "paragraphy." Now that I've returned to wanting one single, wider column the line-by-line NASB really stands out and got me concerned about it.

I always appreciate your help!

if you have the NASB 77 it displays in paragraph- I use it along side my 95- I wish there was a paragraph version of the NASBU, would buy it in a heart beat.

I just upgraded to Logos 6 from Logos 3, and to my great disappointment realize that the NASB version is single verse format.  With the amount of passages that I copy and paste into powerpoint, this is almost a game changer.  Why would they have the paragraph format in version 3 but not in version 6?

Try clicking visual filters on the toolbar, ( the 3 circle icon)  then be sure "Bible text only" is unchecked.

Are you sure you're comparing the same versions?  As Whyndell said above, both the original (1977) version and the updated NASB (1995) are available in Logos. The original is in paragraph format, but I'm pretty sure the NASB95 resource has always been one verse per line, which is how the print copies are too.  If you had a license to the original NASB, then you should still have access to it in Logos 6. However, the NASB95 is the main supported one that has an interlinear.

Also, if you were using L3, you might need to do something to make sure your old resources are included in L6. (I never used L3 and am a Mac user... I <think> I read that you might need to do something, but I might be wrong. I have been before.)

If you were using L3, you needed to synchronize your resources with the server on a regular basis so that Logos knew about your current licenses.  It's possible that some things could get missed if this didn't happen every time new resources were installed.  Plus, the L3 license server isn't available anymore. Customer service would be needed to resolve any L3 license issues now.

What is interesting is that many of the other major Bible software packages have the NASB 1995 in paragraph form.

I found that I am able to buy the 1997 version, which is in paragraph format, for $25.  But I'd like to avoid that version as the poetic texts include the thees and thous as well as some minor differences in translation throughout.  It just doesn't make sense, as I am sure that in version 3 I had NASB 95 in paragraph format.  That was this morning before I upgraded.  It's just hard to accept considering the amount of money invested and the amount of time I spend using the program.

Just out of curiosity... can you grab a screen shot?

This is Bible text checked; without checked, the space between verses is eliminated (but still a new line each verse)

I am upgraded now, so I can't use the old program.  I had version three with the free upgrade to 4 (same texts as version three).
