I am very excited to see the custom reading plan option and have been attempting to create a chronological plan of the NT as there is not one pre-loaded.  However, the Add Session remains darkened.  I have tried to follow the step-by-step instructions but have had no success.  Is there something small that I have overlooked?  I did check our version:  6.8.

Thanks - Jeff's Wife, Kristi :)

Welcome Kristi! Smile

It might help to have more details. For example, can you post a screen shot? Give a link to the instructions you are using?

Thank you very much!

Each time I attempt to create a plan and input the passage, the Add Session never goes live and I never have the option of adding to that same plan, or at least that is what is seems.  If I need to leave this dialog box for any reason, e.g., to open the Snipping Tool, the reference bar clears and I lose whatever I just entered.  The plan will then appear in my list of documents, but it's empty as I've never been able to Add Session.

The directions are from the Logos manual.

It's not showing any references typed in ... what happens when you enter you scripture passages? Does Add Session appear then? I believe you enter all the passages for a given day before using Add session.

Had you hit enter before you moved elsewhere? If your reference was invalid it will clear ... and I need to test to see if you must hit enter.

Jeff Spangler:

I did this in Logos 6, following the instructions applicable to Logos 4 found at:

https://blog.logos.com/2011/11/logos-4-create-a-chronological-bible-reading-plan/

You have to pick a standard reading plan (not pre-defined, not custom). Other than that, it worked pretty much as the article described. I've been reading from that plan since Jan 1. It works out to about 3 chapters per day.

After you enter a reference in the text box, you need to select one of the provided options in the popup list that appears (by clicking, or by using the up/down cursor keys to select the desired reference and then hitting Enter).

This will add the reading to the current session, enabling the "Add session" button and allowing you to add another reading to the same day if you desire.

Eureka!  I didn't realize that Logos was providing the popup below for me to make a selection of the suggested reference!  The Add Session does appear now.  Thank you, thank you!!
