      Description

      You can't get to the last verse of a chapter.

      • The display at the top always shows the verse at the top of the screen.
      • As it limits scrolling to the last "page" it means that the "top" verse of the last page is the last verse number displayed as opposed to the actual LAST verse.
      • This is usually unnoticed until you want to link the last verses with commentaries, especially the likes of TSK (Treasury of Scriptural Knowledge) which is just a list of cross references. etc, where it can often be difficult to establish where each verse "commentary" starts and the use of the verse indicator in the title bar is vital.
      • The one way to correct this is to limit the scroll to the last verse rather than keeping the end text at the bottom of the screen. Thinking about it I suspect that currently it is likely not a coded piece and the scrolling probably simply stops when there is no more text to show.

        fixed in b5 --> try tapping on a verse number in the Bible tab and see if that solves this. Thanks!

        Sorry Nic, this doesn't resolve the issue.
        It offers an alternative method of getting to the commentary, but as the bible location appears to be synchronized between the Bible and Commentary tabs you can simply click on the tab to get you there.
        The problem with scrolling to the last verse in the Bible possibly applies more to the commentary than the bible itself. With the bible you still have verse numbering; not so with the commentary. You need to get the relevant portion referring to the verse to the top of the screen so that the header toggles it's number and indicates that the notes for the relevant verse has started.

        I've made some more changes that will be in v1.3.2 final release. I'm not planning on releasing a new beta, so take a look in the final release and let me know what you think.

        Commentaries now show their verse numbers, so modules like TSK should be MUCH easier to navigate. Also, Bibles and commentaries will be padded with newlines at the end of the chapter, so you should be able to scroll the last verse to the top of the screen. Marking this as "Fixed" in v1.3.2 (on the App Store now) and let me know if it resolves this issue. Thanks!
