Greetings, and wishing you all a happy and peaceful New Year,

Using the latest version of Verbum 9 on my Mac running macOS Big Sur, I noticed the "Replace with Passage" service is not able to expand non-sequential Bible verses.

For example, "Psalm 99:3" and "Psalm 99:3-5" work, but "Psalm 99:3, 5" does not work. 

I don't understand why, because "Psalm 99:3, 5" works just fine in the "Copy Bible Verse" tool within Logos. It seems the two tools are related, because the "Replace with Passage" service uses the formatting specified in the "Copy Bible Verse" tool.

Any suggestions?

Thank you

Replicated "Replace with Passage" on macOS 11.1 Big Sur (Logos 9.2 Beta 2 & Verbum 8.17 SR-2) not being able to expand non-sequential Bible verses while "Copy Bible Verses" can (using abbreviated ps 99.3,5 OR full verse reference Psalm 99:3, 5).

Thank you for verifying. I now know it's not only me. Hopefully, Faithlife will chime in and let us know what to do.

I just tried with Logos 9 on my MacBook Pro and it had the same issue: the "Replace with Passage" tool does not work with non-sequential verses (i.e., Mt 5:1, 2).

Hello,

It's been a while since I posted this, but have yet to hear anything from Faithlife as to whether this is a bug or intentional behavior. I know it's hard for Faithlife to respond to every message, but it would be nice to hear back.

God bless

While Faithlife's staff have quite a presence on the Forums, (which in my experience is a rare thing for companies) it is primarily here for users to help each other. The company has undertaken to monitor the suggestion forum (and a new thing which I have still to get my head around).

You may be luck with getting a response here but you should not expect one.

As a general rule of thumb, Faithlife does not support partial verses or non-contiguous verses.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

Thank you, I appreciate your replies. 

MJ Smith, when you say Logos generally does not support partial verses, are you speaking about the “Replace with Passage” tool specifically? The “Copy Bible Verses” tool DOES work correctly with non-sequential verses. I can’t imagine it would be too difficult to update the “Replace with Passage” tool to do the same, since they already implemented it wonderfully in the “Copy Bible Verses” tool. 

Also, part of me wonders if this is something that just popped up in Logos 9. I need to download a copy of Logos 7 and Logos 8 to see if those supported non-sequential verses in the “Replace with Passage” service. 

Thanks again

Hello again,

By way of update, I download Logos 8 to see if the non-sequential verses would work in "Replace with Passage," but sadly it did not. I then downloaded Logos 9 in Windows running on my Mac via Parallels, but no luck there.

Finally, I used some AppleScript to get it to do what I needed.
