I want to create a reading plan similar to the M'Cheyne that will auto generate each day that consists of multiple books of different genres. I know I can semi-do this through the drop down that lumps together OT, NT, Torah, Prophets, and even OT+NT+Prov+Psalm.

But I want to customize which books are read together, such as 1 Samuel and Romans. I would even be happy if I could select the M'Cheyne or "The One Year Bible" but begin on day 200 or something like that to move ahead and not begin in Genesis for the 4000th time. 

I cannot figure out how to do this apart from creating a completely custom plan, for which I would have to create each day individually, which is unrealistic when looking beyond a weeks worth of readings.

Some of the examples listed on this wiki page may give you some ideas. It will still involve creating your own custom plan, but these examples may provide a starting point that you could edit and then create.

AH! I just figured it out. Under "generate a reading plan," you need to type in your books in a certain way.

Separate books in each section by a "-". Such as "1 Sam-Job"

Then you separate that reading from another with "|" 

So your end result will look like: "1 Sam-Job | Matt-Acts | Psalms" 

That would give you a plan in which you would have 3 readings per day, with a selection from Samuel, Matthew, and Psalms.
