I just upgraded to the latest Accordance.  Now I put the cursor on 4:1 of Genesis & to my surprise, a little window popped up under the verse number & extending to the right.  The window has a little triangle, like an up-arrow at its top left.  Inside the window it has (similar to instant details):

 

Genesis 4:1

1 Hebrew: kanah, to get.

 

I don't see any way to copy what is in that window.  And the Instant Details window is still at the place I put it at the bottom right of the screen.  What is that pop-up for, & why did it pick kanah out of the verse?

 

Thanks for your help.

Enoch,

 

Accordance has had an Instant Details popover since version 10.0.  You can access it by clicking and holding on a location, or option-clicking.  You can copy the contents with the Clipboard icon in the top right of the window.  It shows you the information on kanah because it is showing all of the footnotes for the verse, and likely in your text you'll see a little '1' marker.  Finally, the popover isn't mutually exclusive with the Instant Details window.  If you don't want to get a popover on click and hold, you can disable it in Preferences -> Instant Details.

I have the ASV up with Hebrew in separate window at its side.  So I guess what I am getting is the ASV footnote to that verse, though the display does not show a footnote number.  In fact I don't ever recall seeing footnote numbers displayed with any Bible text on Accordance.  The ASV has both number & letter footnotes; the letters being to cross-references.  But neither footnote set displays on Accordance -- perhaps there is some way to make them display.

The footnotes were added to the ASV fairly recently. You can add them in parallel from Add Parallel: Reference Tools.

Thanks, I saw that I could get them to display in preferences.  So now I see the Arabic numbered footnotes (1,2,3,4. . .), but not the letter notes (a,b,c,d,...) that key to the cross references.  Incidentally, Wilbur Smith told us in class (many years ago) that the ASV cross references were originally vast in number, so vast that it was decided that they could not be added to the ASV itself; so they were published in a separate volume.   Only a smaller selection was actually put in print in the ASV.   I recall coming across something like that separate volume as a free download.  I probably have it somewhere in this computer.  Since Smith recommended that volume, I drove across town and hunted it down in the Moody Bible Institute library.
