Hello everybody, 

I'm trying to make my custom Bible to use in Logos 4. I'm sure I'm using the right syntax (got it from here: http://community.logos.com/forums/p/36862/276530.aspx#276530) because Logos reads and identifies the passage correctly. 

But my main concern is how do I make Logos to treat my custom Bible as any other Bible in my library. That is, how do I make it to show the text in the Comparison column? 

Any ideas? 
Thanks!

I added a PB Bible to a collection and then requested that text comparison use that collection.

Great! Thank you very much. I actually forgot to tag the resource as a Bible while creating the PB.

Btw, do you know how to make a custom Bible a default one?

Of the Bible? It's Slovak ecumenical translation. 
Of Logos? It's 4.5b (4.52.0.2176)

Hi Marek

To make your "default" Bible you need to prioritise it above all other Bibles in your library.

For details on prioritisation please see http://wiki.logos.com/Prioritizing

Noticed Text Comparison has a book (1 John) to compare so only one of the Top Bibles has verses visible in Text Comparison column.  One option is floating Text Comparison so can see verses in other Top Bibles.  My library prioritization has 2 commentary series in my Top 5 resources with Bible indexing so "Top Bibles" has 3 Bibles in Text Comparison, which can be compared with the Logos American Standard Version and a personal book bible version => American Standard Version 1901 - Personal Bible without Chapter and Verse #'s

Note: choose to not show base text since Greek does not match any English words.

To add a Bible in Text Comparison, have learned to type a comma, then Bible abbreviation, click desired Bible, then press enter (to add Bible to list plus update comparison).

An alternative to Text Comparison tool is highlighting verse(s) in a Bible, then press F7 to show pop-up comparison with that Bible plus next 4 highest prioritized Bibles.  If text not highlighted in Bible, then Bible location shown is used for F7 pop-up (limited to one chapter with scroll bar on right side):

Hi Marek,

I noticed that you imported a Slovak version?  I am a missionary residing in Bernolákovo and would like to have a Slovak version in Logos.  Do you know how I can do this?

He may still be reading the forum

did a search on this forum but did not find a docx file listed for that resource

[don't give up - keep looking - did find other posts requesting it]

[You might want to try starting a thread with the title Slovak translation in the suggestions forum]

Welcome to the forums. 

Since you're talking about an ecumenical translation, I would imagine that it is fairly recent and still under copyright? If so, it would be illegal to share the .docx file without special permission. You will probably have to locate and tag the text for yourself.
