Hi,

Recently I have set my Logos UI to Chinese Simplified, just to test drive and familiarize myself with the UI.

If Logos can consider to enhance how Bible Reference could be entered like in the English UI, I think many of us will be very appreciative.

Some problems I discovered (consistency), as I run through the 66 Books of the Bible is as follows:

Book names not recognized

  • Exodus

Book names recognized but reference number cannot be entered

  • Psalms 1

Abbreviation of Book names works (# of Characters indicated below)

  • Numb 1  (4) Characters
  • De 1       (2)
  • 1 kin 1    (3) (spaces needed between 1 and kings)
  • 1 chr 1    (3) “
  • 2 chr 1    (3) “
  • neh 1      (3)
  • es 1        (2) 
  • pro 1       (3)
  • eccl 1      (4) (thankfully this one works if not I would have problem spelling it)
  • isa 1        (3)
  • jer 1         (3)
  • lam 1       (3) 
  • ezk 1       (3) 
  • hos 1       (3) 
  • oba 1       (3)
  • mal 1       (3)
  • mat 1       (3)
  • mar 1       (3)
  • luk 1         (3)
  • act 1         (3)
  • gal 1         (3)
  • phil 1        (4)
  • col 1         (3)
  • 1 thes 1    (4)
  • 2 thes 1    (4)
  • tit 1           (3)
  • phile 1       (5)
  • heb 1         (3)
  • jam 1         (3)
  • 1 joh 1       (3)
  • rev 1          (3)

Book names has to be spelled in full for Bible Reference to work

  • genesis 1
  • Leviticus 1
  • Joshua 1
  • Judges 1
  • Ruth 1
  • 1 samuel 1 (spaces needed between 1 and samuel)
  • 2 kings 1
  • ezra 1
  • job 1
  • song of solomon 1
  • daniel 1
  • joel 1
  • amos 1
  • jonah 1
  • micah 1
  • nahum 1
  • habakkuk 1
  • zephaniah 1
  • haggai 1
  • zechariah 1
  • john 1
  • romans 1
  • 1 corinthians 1
  • 2 corinthians 1
  • 1 timothy 1
  • 2 timothy 1
  • 1 peter 1
  • 2 peter 1
  • 2 john 1
  • 3 john 1
  • jude

Hi LimJK,

Thank you for taking the time to list all of this. What Chinese character set are you using when typing the abbreviations?

Tommy,

Thanks for your reply Smile I am using US English as I type the English Bible Reference.

I noticed another interesting side effects if you enter the first character only, I noticed Logos starts parsing and analysing the input string and giving the wrong reference most of the time, eg. single character e, j, l, etc. I thought Logos should not try to generate a reference based on 1st character entered, where you really don't have a basis to guess what bible reference it is going to be Smile ... just a thought from a lay person Smile

Any Bible, I tried Chinese CUV Traditional with RVI (genesis 1), CUV Simplified (de 1) and ESV (exodus).

I am using Logos Chinese Simplified UI 7.4 SR-1, with US English Keyboard when I enter the Bible Reference

I was able to replicate differences for over a dozen books of the bible when entering book abbreviations in the ESV between the English and Chinese Simplified UI. I've submitted a case and linked to this thread.

Thanks, LimJK.

Tommy,

Just like to highlight a related case on the input box of Home Page, entering English abbreviation of Bible Reference is not respected.
