Verbum Mobile - Linking Tabs

Linking tabs in the Verbum mobile app causes them to scroll in sync. This is helpful if you want to toggle between a Bible and study Bible or commentary. You can have multiple linked resources based on the layout you choose.

 

Link Tabs

Note: On tablets, you can have up to four tabs on a screen and on phones you can have two. The process for linking is slightly different on the different device types.

Link Tabs on a Tablet

  1. Open one of the books you’d like to link together.
  2. Tap the tabs icon Tab Switcher
icon at the bottom of the screen.
  3. Tap the split tab icon Split Tab
icon in the bottom right corner to show a new book below your open book.

  4. Or tap the layouts icon Layout icon to choose from eight layout templates.

  5. Tap the Add New -
Plus icon to select an additional book.
  6. Link tabs by tapping the link icon Link
icon under each book title. Notice that you can create multiple linksets (A, B, and C). All books linked to the A set, for example, will stay in sync across all panels.

  7. Tap Done in the top right corner. The tabs you’ve selected are now linked and will remain in sync as you read, scroll, and search your resources.

Follow Only

Set a book to follow only, so that moving in one will move the other, but not the other way around. For example, link a commentary and Bible to Follow only so that navigating in your commentary won’t move your Bible.

  1. Follow the instructions above for linking a book.
  2. Tap follow only.
    1. On tablet

    2. On phone
