Post subject:  Feature Request: Bible Sets with Folders in Bible View

I love the way books can be organized into different sets with various folders in each set. This allows me to have a set of commentaries with folders such as whole Bible, NT Only, OT only, individuals books, etc. This organizes my books very well.

Currently though organizing Bibles can rather hard. I would love to have the same feature in the Bibles. I could envision a set that has Greek/Hebrew Texts with folders of NT, OT, or LXX. I could also see a set of main texts divided into literal, dynamic, or free folders.

Hi, this is a great suggestion. It is in the list of features to-do, already.
viewtopic.php?p=11225#p11225

But in the meantime one can use the "set tab icon" feature of the Bible view icons (right mouse click on a Bible icon" and set them to corresponding colors, e.g. green colored icon for OT, Red for NT, blue for Bibles that have OT&NT. Then you can if you wish group these together.( manually )
Note that now you can have sets (that are shared) in the Bible search view and the Compare Bibles view. You can then have search sets, the results of which can be right mouse clicked (when you get to the verse level) and displayed as a set in compare mode. So these are useful at the moment.

Thanks for the information. I never thought about using colors to organize my Bible.

This is a great feature, I really hope it doesn't take too long to enter the pipeline. :)

To be honest, i think that this might be 'too much' (maybe not?).
I understand why one can have 1000 reference books, but how many Bibles?

This would be useful even for few Bibles. There are several useful ways to group Bibles -- by language, by translation method, by base text, by individual taste, etc. It would be very handy to have the possibility to alternate among this various groups when doing study.

Hi Costas, I think that the present features for, "compare", "search", and "multiple Bible translations in a popup", answer your "maybe not?".
Translations are already being grouped so it would be useful to have the suggested feature if you are a user that finds the other grouping sets useful.

I think this would be very helpful. Especially if I could go into file > preferences > Bible texts -- and click on a group rather than click on/off individual Bibles. Sometimes I want to use certain Bibles and other times other Bibles. This idea would save time making those adjustments. I like the idea but I see its priority being in the mid-range of importance.

I have to say, this has got to be the feature I miss the most in theWord...
