I use Logos 6 and wanted to set up a reading plan with a devotional book. My issue is that when I do that it enters the cover, contents page, title page, acknowledgment's page etc as part of the plan. This throws the daily devotional part of the book out of sync and so the 1st of Jan reading ends up in Feb! Anyone know how to customize the plan so that one can set a page or book section as the beginning point for the reading plan?

If the plan otherwise works okay, eg. if the book has a page per daily devotional, and a page index or headers per day, simply adjust the starting date into the past (so, if there is 35 pages front matter, start the plan on Nov 26th, whatever makes the Jan 1 devotional fall on Jan 1 in the plan's calendar). Then you may want to not go for "in one year" but for "in XYZ sessions" (XYZ being 401 in my example: 366 days in leap-year 2016 plus the front matter), which will bring the Dec 31 devotional to Dec 31 in the calendar.
