Trying to create a reading plan for a non-bible source.  The Summa Theologica.  I would like to only read the S.C. and Resp. paragraphs in my Reading Plan.  Did not find a way to specific that correctly on the reading plan list, so I created a text file of the references.  I have not been able to import or copy/paste the list back into Logos/Verbum.  Trying to import in to a Passage List, no references found.  Trying to paste, Logos/Verbum stops responding.

How can I create this reading plan?

Thank you

Cliff

Cliff:

The most straightforward way is to open the resource you want to read, then open a Custom Reading Plan window. Highlight each daily reading section, then use the 'choose selection' choice in the custom reading plan to add the section.

There is no automated way to do this. It's all manual.

Speaking of manual, it sure would help if Logos had a manual to show how this is done, wouldn't it?

My thanks to the various MVPs. Without them Logos would have died early. They were the only real help available.

BTW, Cliff,

If you have no idea what I'm talking about, let me know and I'll post more detailed instructions.

Thank you.

Was really hoping I could at least import the RP or PL to save on the work, tons of references. Oh well.

I can get it to add a small reference to the RP, but this paste "STh., I q.1 a.1 s.c., resp., a.2 s.c., resp., a.3 s.c., resp., a.4 s.c., resp., a.5 s.c., resp." or larger really sends Verbum to lunch (the previous will eventually return, but larger, maybe I don't have the patience - seems to be an exponential increase in time to wait with each new reference added to the line).

Thank you very much for the help.  Now to decide if I want to wade through the document to paste the content (thousands of references) into the RP or just skip (don't read) the sections I don't want to read - 'cause Verbum will successfully create a whole document RP.

Thanks

It make be better to try to do it in lectionary format i.e. as a reading cycle although reading cycles currently don't work. They can be built from a file - I usually used excel but that's not the only option. It you want I'll test a couple of things out and see if we can make it work ... what you lose is the ability to mark things as read, adjust if you fall behind etc. ...

Sure, would appreciate any help and knowledge gained on how to use Verbum better.

Does the Import File feature of a Passage List only use Bible references?  Seems odd that I can add non-Bible references to a PL, export those references, but can not import them from file.

Thank you
