One of the many exciting new features of Verbum 6 is the Custom Reading Plan. Get the most out of your study time with a Reading Plan, newly customizable to help you learn what you want to learn, when you want to learn it.
Schedule your reading to fit your own calendar—shorter selections for weekdays, for example, and longer sections for weekends.
- You can choose your own pace and customize your reading according to your schedule
- You can create a plan from multiple resources—anything in your Verbum library
In Verbum, select the Documents tab and open “Reading Plan,” just as in Verbum 5.
What’s new is the third option, Custom Reading Plan:
Then, choose a book from your Verbum library, and highlight, left click, and drag a reading into the Reference box.

Tuesday I know I’ll be booked, so I only have one article from Chapter 2 of the Catechism.
Here’s my plan in progress with multiple readings. The orange box indicates where I drag selected text to create my next reading:
With the Custom Reading Plan, you can drag and drop the sections you wish to read from multiple sources, creating a reading plan that suits your needs.
