I recently purchased the NT Use of OT (Beale-Carson) commentary which is filled with links to other resources in my library. When I hover over a Bible text reference or abbreviation it shows immediately in the Instant Details window. However, if I hover over LXX, MT, or Pseudepigrapha references, nothing pops up. I can click on these links to go to those resources, but cannot see them in Instant Details. Apparently, this behavior is true of other modules as well. This is a serious disadvantage in reading mode since it exits reading mode to show the other text.

Chat Content:

Ryan: [17:41] Welcome to our real-time support chat. How can I help you today?
Mark Mills: [17:41] Instant Details does not pop up when I hover over LXX or Pseudepigrapha references in my NT Use of OT (Beale-Carson) commentary
Ryan: [17:42] Hi Mark! Thank you for your question. Let me check on that for you...
Mark Mills: [17:46] I don't get MT references either, I just noticed.
[17:47] I did figure out how to get OT and Apocrypha displayed, which works fine.
Ryan: [17:50] Yeah, unfortunately the details do not show in the Instant Details window. If you click on the reference, the text should open in a new text
Mark Mills: [17:51] Yes. So is it a problem with that particular resource?
[17:51] I have not tried this with other resources.
Ryan: [17:52] that's what we're researching...one moment...
[17:55] We just tested it with some other modules and they are all the same...I would recommend posting a request to change that aspect of Instant Details in our Forum
[17:56] Our programmers and developers do frequent the Forums and pay attention to what our users would liked changed
Mark Mills: [17:56] Thanks.

Mark,

At the moment, those are what we'd call "external hyperlinks," so they don't pertain to the verse order that the commentary is set to work with. Most of our modules are keyed to work with the versification you'll find in KJV. As such, they do not specify a particular Bible. This offers the flexibility for you to choose the text (CMD-T) that you'd like best to show up in Instant Details.

 

As a developer, however, when I see LXX or MT, I create a external hyperlink that is specific to one Bible text (LXX or MT) and only LXX or MT will open. This has the advantage of getting you to the particular text that is mentioned in the commentary, but it has the disadvantage (at the moment) of not being the kind of link (as our normal Scripture links do) that shows up automatically in Instant Details.

 

So, to clarify, what you'd like is "Instantly viewable" external hyperlinks that could show up in Instant Details. Sounds like a great request!
