Is there a way to change the default iOS text?

Yes. Move the text you wish as default to the top of the list in the Library view. To do so, tap the Edit button in the top right of the screen in the Library view. On the far right of the screen, touch and drag the three shaded lines for the text you wish to move. Simply drag it to the top of the list and then tap Done. The moved text will now be your default.

The default text module used throughout the app is set by which one is listed first in the Texts section of the Library view.  So to change the default text is simply a matter of editing the order of the texts in that section.

Oddly, I have rearranged the order, and the default text is still the 2nd text listed under texts in my library. No matter what I try, I cannot get it to change.

Have you checked the text set in the preferences?

 

Tool Display— Text and Alternative Text

Compare Text— Keyed Text

Search Tabs—Text

Parallel Tabs— Text and NT Text

 

These are the places I know that allow one to define the text to be used in functions controlled by these operations. There may be more that I have missed.

 

Oh my, I see that you were asking about iOS. Sorry! I haven't had much coffee this morning thus far.  :(  :wacko:

 

Now as to my iOS device I find mine is working as advertised in that a verse ref in any tool will be displayed in the topmost text of the library. I have always chosen a specific text from the library when opening another text , so I have never thought of a default text for this. The text version remains as the most recently used until I choose another text from the recently used list or the library text list. I am under the  impression that the top text controls the text to be used in amplify only. The search tool of a text window uses the current text displayed, though one may search with a different text by touching the text ID in the search tool, much as one changes the text displayed in the current text window by touching the text name at the top. Actually, I find this behavior pretty satisfying, for I am always changing my mind on what I want as a preferred text.  ;)

 

Of course, my understanding of the iOS may be lacking and I may be missing the point of the question you are asking. I look forward to learning more.  :D

 

Shalom,

Joseph

So I think in v2.4 or v2.5 of the iOS app there was a Hyperlink preference added under the Tool Display settings to set a first and second choice text for resolving scripture links.  I would have to look more closely at the code to see when these are used but my guess is that, at least for tools, the prior information about the iOS app always using the first two texts in the Library view may no longer be correct.

That's where it is. I was searching under Text Display for a place to change it. It seems the old convention of rearranging the desired text to first position is gone in favor of this. I'm not sure it's obvious, but as long as it works...

Thanks Scott! I had not scrolled down far enough to see this and my Text and Alt Text were set to the number 1 and number 2 text in my library stack.  ;)  Always learning/relearning something every day. Brent, you may ignore my previous comments.  :wacko:
