Using the text comparison tool lets you quickly compare passages.

Either have multiple copies of a translation open or use a Passage List.

What are you trying to do?

A forthcoming version will let you do it in a single tab. It's under testing with Logos Now , I believe.

With Logos, there are often many ways to accomplish a task (that can be good or bad, depending on your perspective).

As another asked, tell us what you are trying to accomplish and we can probably be more specific.

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

If you are speaking of the Multiple Resources tool. It is not designed to view multiple passages. In that tool, all resources will follow the host resource.

I can only think of one way to accomplish this—open multiple copies of the Bible(s) in which you wish to view the multiple passages.

Thank you all.  I have a Sunday School lesson that uses three separate passages and I was wondering how to have all three up at the same time.  I realized I can open multiple translations and have them all open at the same time.

What a great bunch of helpers!

...and as a reminder, you can open them in floating windows so you can move them around on your screen, even off your main layout, where you can see them while you work.

Passage List is another way, which could be saved results from a search:

You can have multiple copies of the same translation open too using CTRL+SHFT+N (for window at least - not sure on what the command would be for MAC)

You can easily open multiple copies of the same translation in a few different ways. The easiest is probably to right-click on the tab and open a duplicate.

Some of the alternative methods (if you already have one copy open) are:

  1. Dragging a new copy of the resource from the library/shortcut bar to your desktop, instead of clicking on it.
  2. CTRL+clicking, on the resource in your library/shortcut bar, instead of just a normal click. (I presume this is CMD+click on a Mac.)

If you think about Parallel Passages you could open a Bible Harmony

For the Mac OS

Cmd-Click on a shortcut will merely shift focus to the already open copy of a resource. Shift-Click will open another copy in a floating window (thanks to MJ for the Shift-click tip—it has proven invaluable). I could not detect any response with Opt-Click. Ctrl-Click is the same action as Right Click (as it has been since Mac OS 1 when mice had a single button).

Cmd-Click on a resource in the Library will only select the resource in the Library window without opening it. Opt-Click on a resource in the Library window will shift focus to the already open copy. As expected Shift-Click selects multiple lines in the Library window.
