Here are ideas for two new feature:

1. It would be great if the Instant Details box displayed two Bible versions when the cursor is passed over a Bible reference in a resource. Most useful would be an English AND a Greek/Hebrew version. These could be displayed in parallel columns or over/under each other.

2. I would like to see the Instant Details box display the derivative words or root words when the cursor passes over the numbers in Strong's or NASV concordance. Currently, one has to click on these highlighted numbers to see the words from which the Greek or Hebrew is derived.

John:

1. The option you suggest would require a lot more settings to interface and save. What is so hard about clicking the verse reference, and then setting up the Text window the way you want it, with as many versions as you want? Click each subsequent reference, or click in the first and drag to the last, to update the window and see all the references in all the panes.

2. Basically you are suggesting that a link in a tool that goes to another entry in that tool should display that entry in the Instant Details. I can see that this would be useful in Strong's dictionaries where the link is just the number, but less so in tools in general where the link word is usually the entry itself. And the problem would be that many tool entries are much too long to display in the Instant Details.

What do y'all think?
