How can I add the full Daily Text with comments?
While the Daily Text comments are not included with the programs because of copyright issues, it is possible to add this information yourself.

How do I add the Congregation Bible Study schedule?
While displaying the Bible Study tab, right-click on an item in the Bible Study area and select Edit from the pop-up menu. In the dialog box that appears, enter the Bible Study item for that date (for example, jd chap.14 par.18-26).
