Is there any way to enter multiple bible references into logos in one go?

For example, Say I'm reading through a book and it provides a reference to Romans 1:22-23 and Jeremiah 2:12-13. It would be great to be able to quickly refer to these verses on logos (without slowing down my reading of the book). I want to be able to quickly type these references into logos and view them quickly.


It would be great if it were possible to just enter these references into logos and have only those verses appear:


Romans 1:22-23 (ESV) 
Claiming to be wise, they became fools, [23] and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles.

Jeremiah 2:12-13 (ESV) 
Be appalled, O heavens, at this; be shocked, be utterly desolate, declares the Lord, [13] for my people have committed two evils: they have forsaken me, the fountain of living waters, and hewed out cisterns for themselves, broken cisterns that can hold no water.

Create a verse list, specify the "Style" as "References and Text in One Column", click on "Add", then type in the verse references separated by a semi-colon:

Rom 1:22-23; Jer 2:12-13

It may not be the ideal, but that'll do it.

Thanks Debra,

I have played with the verse lists, they work but they just take so long to do when you're wanting to just quickly check out some bible references. They are very tedious.

It would be great to be able to just use keyboard shortcuts.

For example, when you come across bible references while reading a book it would be really quick to be able to press Ctr+Shift+G and type in 'Rom 1:22-23; Jer 2:12-13' and have the verses show up.

Now that would make logos an awesome program!

Sorry if I am not understanding your question, but why can't you just hover over the reference to read the verse?  That is fast.

Joe, that's true (it's nice and quick then), but I'm talking about when you're reading physical books, internet papers, etc

Well there is your problem David, you are reading paper books... :-) 

Seriously though, I see now what you are asking about.  No solution, but a valid suggestion.

What about just opening two Bible windows in Logos, typing in a reference for either window. Can you switch between windows using the keyboard? If so it would be very quick to do.
