When I open the Daily Reading zone, it opens with the list on the left, and in another zone to the right the reading for the day in my default text, ESVS.

If I select a word in the text and amplify, say, in Eerdmans Dictionary or IVP-NB Dictionary, a new tab opens in the left zone (the zone that has the date and passages list), and the right side zone (the zone that had the reading for the day) now does one of two things:

i. if the tool amplified into has scripture hypertexts, then the right zone will display all the hypertexted scripture passages.

ii. if the tool amplified into has no scripture hypertexts, then Accordance searches searches the Alternate Text as specified in Preferences > Tool Display, and since the article contained no scripture hyperlinks, the right zone just becomes blank.

So far, the behavior is more or less logical and, even, convenient in that it displays all hypertexted scripture links.

The problem is once the right zone displays the result of the amplification, there is no way to go back to the original text from which I amplified the word in question. The only, and cumbersome, way to go back to the text is go back to the chronological (or Devotional Readings) tab, and then click the text link. It seems to me there ought to be a back arrow or something to go back easily to the original text content.
