Changing Dictionaries with Key numbers

If this is something you do only occasionally, try just selecting the Greek word in the Mounce dictionary and amplifying to Greek Keys via the toolbar or Library.
If you want both dictionaries to appear each time you triple-click, try this. Triple-click a word to open the Mounce dictionary. This tab will automatically be recycled so it gets re-used the next time you triple-click. Now open the Greek Keys dictionary, switch the field to Key Number, and insert the LINK command using the keyboard shortcut shift-command-L. Be sure to link the Greek Keys to your Mounce dictionary. Now whenever you triple-click, the Mounce Dictionary will be updated to look up the new key number, and the Greek Keys will update to search for that same key number. Then you can just switch back and forth between the two tabs.
Hope this helps.

Tony, when you change the tool displayed in a window, it automatically defaults to the first field of that tool. We could try to make it switch to the most analogous field in a new tool, but it would be tricky and might lead to unforeseen frustrations. Here are two in-the-meantime solutions I hope will help.
Note that this does work differently in the iOS app. When you go to change the tool module to be searched, it will attempt to keep the field the same if it exists in the new tool module. Otherwise it will also switch to the first field like the desktop does.

Having said this, I think the iOS approach of keeping the same field (unless unavailable) is more intuitive.
I am truly thankful for all you folks at Accordance. You are helpful, kind, and friendly. A real treasure in this world today.
