These are little things, but they would be cool features.

1. Global Verse Divider Preferences

I have "Use decimal verse divider" turned on in the Text Tools preferences. However, that preference only applies to text tools. The instant details window still uses a colon, and the user note's edit window still uses a colon. I have to manually change the verse divider for every note I create. It would be very cool if the verse divider preference took effect globally.


2. Clickable Browser

In OS X, many UI controls can be toggled by clicking their label text. For example, open the Appearance preferences in System Preferences. Click on the text beside any of the radio buttons. That will toggle the radio button.

This would be a cool feature for the Browser disclosure triangle on tool windows. I know disclosure triangles in OS X usually require a direct click (as in iTune's folders), but those are instances where the labels can be edited. Since the "Browser" label is static, it could be used as a "button" to trigger the disclosure triangle.

I suggest this because I keep finding myself clicking on the Browser label rather than the triangle. It may enhance usability to have a larger target for toggling the Browser. And the same principle would apply to the "More Options" disclosure triangle as well.


3. Relocate Prior Button

I understand why the Prior navigation button is located at the bottom of the window next to the field containing the current location in the text. However, using a Web browser all day has me trained to go to the upper left corner of the window to go "back". I don't know how this could be implemented, but I imagine I'm not the only one who automatically goes to the top left of the window to navigate.

Thanks
