I was just curious if you ever thought of updating the the TCR so it can scroll along like other study Bibles?

Hi Dan, not sure what you mean here - my TCR will scroll along in parallel with my main text - what are you seeing?

My mistake I was not finding it under the parallel menu i was searching under study bibles and cross references I see now that it is under Biblical Studies.

I only actually thought of it noticing someone asking about the TCR in another forum. In general I find the NIV Thematic Study Bible far more useful.... it is a pity Zondervan only allows you to sell it as the DICTIONARY OF BIBLE THEMES  version of it now. I realize it is virtually the same work but having it able to parallel the Bible text is nicer in my mind (maybe it still can, as I do not own the dictionary version in accordance I am not aware of it's behaviour, but then again I wasn't able to find the TCR in the menu either (always hate when you can;t see something in front of you)).  B)

Well, Dan, if that last emoticon is your avatar...take off the dark glasses! ;-)

And FYI, dictionary of bible themes is an English tool, so not organised by bible reference (you would' expect it to be). So can't be displayed in a parallel pane.

I suspected as much, but didn't want you to think I was being rude about your glasses. My cousin has v photosensitive eyes and similar glasses. :-)

This was the editor's desire. I tried to explain how reference tools work in Accordance, and its usefulness as such for this resource, but he was insistent on it functioning as it is now.

All I can say is thankfully I own the Study Bible version... that makes it truly a useful tool.... the dictionary implementation seriously cuts down the usefulness in my mind.... But guess it is not for us to say we are just the users....
