    Hi!

    In the Dutch Epub I downloaded from jw.org I can't find refences in the verses.
    If I change the Bible to the 2013-English version, I see references.
    Am I doing something wrong? Or is there no Dutch Epub with references on jw.org?

    Regards,
    Morten

    Hi @Preben Keld Grønholdt - as Gabriel mentioned, I only added the cross-references for the specified languages, which represent the main languages of users of the app. I can look to add support for Dutch as well if there is enough demand from users. The cross-references are not included in the EPUB files - I am supplementing the EPUB files with the cross-reference data.

    Hi Matt,

    If the cross-reference could be added in Dutch: I would love that!

    Regards,
    Morten

    @Morten Croese - I have attempted to add support for Dutch cross-references and footnotes in the latest version 3.2.

    @Preben Keld Grønholdt - no promises, but I will try and add support for Danish in the next update.

    Hi @cyclecat it looks like there is a new German 2018 Revision. The EPUB itself does not contain any cross-references sorry which is why they are not appearing.

    Yes, this is the New World Translation, 2018 edition! However, the jw library app contains cross-references. I therefore thought that the cross-references would also have been adopted in the Equipd Bible.
    Sorry, then I got this wrong!! Thank you for getting quick answers!

    I understand it can be confusing. There are many cross-references and adding them to the EPUB would explode the file size. JW Library does not use epub files. Thanks for understanding. I may be able to improve this situation for you but it won't be in the short term as I am currently snowed under.
