Set Your Preferred Bible

Verbum allows you to set the default Bible version that will appear when you click a Bible reference in a resource or report or when you perform a search.

There are two ways to set your preferred Bible: through the Command Box and through prioritized resources.

Command Box

The Command Box will be accessed in a slightly different way, depending on whether you have Verbum configured with the Application Toolbar at the top or on the left. (For details on changing this, please see this article)

If you have the toolbar at the top, the command box will appear just to the right of the Tools icon.

If you have the toolbar on the left, and in expanded view, the command box will appear just to the right of the Verbum icon.
