Hello

I have a very basic question and hope someone can help me - please.

I am reading The Gospel of Mark in the NKJV (within Logos) and noticed that the Chapter Headings are too small to be noticed.  To me they seem to be non-existent all of a sudden.

Is there some way to actually get them to show up more pronounced or larger (by themselves) please?

I imagine its a visual filter setting of some kind....but do not see how or where to change this setting please.


Thanks anyone and everyone.

I was just playing around with the "One verse per line" visual filter, and it did change the display somewhat.

Thanks...I tried that now and it did make it a little larger.  I wish the word Chapter 9 was in there, don't you?  God bless you for your reply.

Yes, that would be nice. It has the chapter number without being preceded by "Chapter ". Also, the visual filter seems to decrease the font size of one group and increase the size of the other. I guess it's a tradeoff.

...to me it seems obvious that we readers would want to be able to see CHAPTER 9 more easily.  Developers and programmers are too advanced to notice this maybe.

Do you suppose Logos has focus groups where they send a rep out to sit in on actual working Bible smallgroups or studies?  I have to wonder.

No one else seems shocked that the Chapter Numbers are missing?  Maybe it is different with other translations of The Bible or something.

I saw it on the first verse of each chapter. I went to Amazon to see the likely format of the printed copy but there is no preview for most Nelson products.

Can replicate by choosing "One verse per line" visual filter.  When displaying Chapter/Verse numbers without "One verse per line", the Chapter number is larger:

ChristianBook has NKJV Nelson Reference Bible preview:

NKJV Study Bible published by Thomas Nelson has NKJV chapter and verse formatting like Logos without "One verse per line":

FYI: knowing Chapter and Verse numbers are uninspired (along with not aligned with Greek sentences in the New Testament); personally prefer to read without them displayed while using visual filter highlighting to "see" range of Greek verbal expression:

If want Chapter & Verse for a word, can click to update location.  Noticed Mark 9:7 has an imperative command from God: "Hear Him!"

Dreaming of option to quickly change formatting of non-bible text pericopes: e.g. change Black to Light Brown.

Minutiae about Chapter and Verse Number placement: Ephesians 1:3-14 is one Greek Sentence in UBS5 while Ephesians 2:8 has three primary clauses:

Ephesians 5:8 has two primary clauses plus starts a third that extends through Ephesians 5:10

Ephesians 5:15 has five primary clauses in one "verse".

Thankful for Logos 6 options to show/hide Chapter/Verse numbers and non-bible text.

Does anyone else notice the typo: "Transfuguration" from the heading text of Mark 9 NKJV?

Embarrassed Yes so reported typo; now to wait for NKJV transfiguration of pericope.

Thanks everyone for your input....I still think it should not be this complex to get a Chapter heading to show up.

I think one of the points KS4J was making above is that the word "Chapter" doesn't appear in the print edition.

I recognise this is different from an appropriate size for the chapter number

thanks Graham.  When you are looking for a particular chapter in a Bible book, its easier to find in a larger font.
