Using the Bible Text Only filter

Most print Bibles include a lot of extra text in the form of footnotes, pericopes, chapter headings and introductions. If you prefer not see this extra text, you can disable it in the Visual Filters menu.

  • Open a Bible.
  • Click on the Visual Filters button.
  • Choose "Bible Text Only"

This will strip all extra text and formatting from the current Bible, including the paragraph formatting in some Bibles. This filter does not affect all Bibles. It only applies to the specific Bible it is applied in.
