I would like to suggest the possibility of changing the search text through the Argument Entry Box. This is a feature that I used a lot in BibleWorks to quickly switch to a different bible version through the command line, and do a search command straight after.



An additional feature would also be to include command-line entries for the additional 'Range', 'Scope' and 'Bracketed Words' options (because for now they can only be accessed by clicking the '+' buttons).

ant,

 

There is a [Range ] stand-alone command. Such as in:

love <and> [Range Matt-John]

 

See the help files on Stand-alone commands

Sometimes I'm so helpful even I can't stand it.

Switching between texts can be expedited by shuffling through your five prioritized texts with control+(1-5).

Hi Joe,

Yes, I already know about the RANGE standalone command. But this isn't the same as the 'Range' feature accessed with the 'More Options' button. Dr. J showed in Podcast 82, at the 2:48 mark onwards, that there is a difference between the 'Range Option' and the 'Range Command'. The feature that I would like to request is, along with 'Scope' and 'Bracketed Words', to also have access to the Range Option (and its corresponding feature) through the command line.

 

Thanks!

Hi James,

 

Well, that's right...I'll try and get used to this way of switching through the prioritized texts.

 

Thanks,
