Recycle Windows Preferences
Posted 08 April 2006 - 03:53 PM
More often than not, I don't want the windows to recycle. I work with user tools with the lectionary readings and the readings for non-lectionary sermon series to pull up tabs for each of the readings. Having to remember to turn off recycling in each window after I've clicked on the link in the tool is a bit of a nuisance; I frequent forget, and then have to redo my "amplyfing" to a new text window.

Also Command click on a thumbnail opens the picture in a new window instead of recycling an open window.
Perhaps these will help.

I did know about clicking the icon, and I was thrilled when it was added, since I was one of those who requested it. It is helpful, but it's not quite as convenient as what I'm thinking of (which combines both the recycling preferences discussed here and the opening text sets as panes discussed elsewhere). Here's the context I'm thinking of:
Each week I set up a workspace for my sermon prep. I use the Revised Common Lectionary, so I always have four text tabs: Old Testament Reading, Psalm, Epistle, and Gospel. Since I am a United Methodist who sometimes attends a text stuy with (ELCA) Lutherans, sometimes I have two OT and Psalms tabs, as the Lutherans use the "alternate" OT/Psalm readings during Ordinary time. The OT tabs are set up with two English translations, the BHS-W4 and LXX1. The NT tabs have two English translations and the GNT-T. I have a workspace saved in this configuration. To set it up for the given week I have to:
Click on the OT tab
Turn on recycling
Click on the RCL User Tool
Click on the OT Scripture link
Click on the OT tab
Turn off recycling
And then repeat this process for the other 3 (or 5) readings.
If, on the other hand, I could a) control-click on a Scripture Link and choose a text set to open in one tab and have recycling turned off, my process would be:
Click on the RCL User Tool tab
Control-click on a reference and choose the appropriate text set
repeat the last step 3 to 5 times.
That said, I have no idea how difficult it would be to make this possible, nor do I know whether there would be enough interest in this combination of features to justify the effort.
