Two questions:

1. Does the Instant Details Box display more than one verse at a time inside User Tools? For example I have Genesis 2:16-17 but only Genesis 2:16 is displayed the the instant details box.

2. In Preferences Tool Display, I have ESV as my default translation and the ITB (Indonesian) as my alternative translation. Is there a reason every I open the program I have to switch it from AF? I have to right click and reset the "Set Tool Display" every time I open it, back to the ESV and ITB because ASV is selected in both default and alternative.

I know there must be something simple, but I can't figure it out.

Thanks

In case it helps, the ITB is a User Bible.

Justin,

1. No, it doesn't show more than one verse at a time. You can set up two separate hyperlinks if you want to see both verses in the instant details box, or click on the link to see both verses in a separate tab/window.

2. When you say "open the program" do you mean start Accordance? If so, then you need to set your default search text in Preferences -> Search Window. To change the default text/alternate text for a user tool, hit command-t, select the text(s) you want, then choose "Use As Default." That will only affect that tool, I believe, but it should make it consistently use those texts. Otherwise, I think it chooses the first text in your search text list to show in instant details (in user tools). I do not see a preference item to set the default/alternate texts for user tools, but I might be missing it (the regular tool option preferences do not seem to affect user tools in this regard).
Soli Deo Gloria,
Robb Brunansky

On the Training DVD David explains how to make a user note look like a single note connected to several verses. I have done it a couple times but usually the bulk of my notes is, well, my notes. It is like type the reference as several verses that I am working within or the chapter. Then enter my note for v.3 and delete the reference then a note for v.5 and delete the reference and so forth through the passage as needed. The expanded note scrolls as a set of notes without the references showing. Might be a little tidier I guess.

I like Davids trick for using white type on white boxes for maps for tests also.
