      Description

      On this release it's only possible to scroll one chapter and you have to manually chose the next chapter in the Navigator.

      I want it to be totally seamless, so you can scroll through the hole Bible, between chapters and even scroll into the next Bible book.

        Mind if you look at this one again? I really think having a continuous reading mode helps one concentrate on reading; swiping left/right kinda breaks your cadence.

        In 1.2.0 I added something to the < button (to go to the previous chapter) so that it goes to the last verse in the previous chapter. I did that cause I was getting frustrated at wanting to read the last bit in the previous chapter to get context of the start of the current chapter.

        I'll take a look at this again soon, but it won't be for 1.3.0, sorry.

        I was just thinking, how about putting a marker that separates a chapter, like making the first verse marker a drop cap or putting a line between chapters? Or adding a goto button that brings you to the beginning or end of a chapter? Haven't really thought about it much, just thinking out loud.

        Thinking about v1.4.0 & looking at the remaining items here, saw that I didn't reply to you - sorry! Did you know you can tap on the time, at the top of the screen, and that lets you jump to the top of the chapter? I'm not planning on thinking about this for v1.4.0 – let me know if you're still interested in this feature in a possible future release...

        I'm going to close this, as I don't think I will implement this. Instead I have added swipe-to-progress (either forwards or backwards) & going backwards will take you to the last verse in the previous chapter. If there's enough support for continuous progression, I'll look into it, but I don't think it's too much of an issue.
        thanks!
