I don't mean this to be snippy, but why not just switch to the NIDOTTE and have Accordance look up the same word I'm already looking at in K/M?
Yes there are extra steps and ways to do it, but ideally, Accordance would show me the word I'm already looking at.
I'm looking at it in the K/M. It knows the strong's key from the ESV triple click. When I change the pop-up menu to the NIDOTTE, it would be cool for it to automatically open to that word. That's why I mentioned that it would be cool if Accordance had a little extra AI and could relate the strong's key to the g/k key when necessary. Or even have it understand the g/k key, the hebrew word, transliteration, etc. based on the strong's key. Then, if you switch to a tool that doesn't have a strong's key, Accordance automatically uses one of the other attributes to find the word in the tool to which you switch.
Basically, when you first do the triple-click search, Accordance stores all of the available fields and values for that word in some kind of "search array" (or "search object"). The object's properties contain all of the data for that word (strong's key, g/k key, hebrew, transliteration, etc.) which it gathers from whatever sources Accordance has avilalble--or some kind of back-end master lexicon. When you switch to a tool that doesn't have the strong's key, it calls a method from the search object to determine which property the tool can use then inserts one of the search object's other properties into a field the tool does contain.
Instead, every time a tool doesn't have the field for the current search value, I have to manually tell it to use some other field to search that tool (and possibly have to go back and get the correct value for that field from the previous tool). I am doing the work that could be contained in the search object.
Accordance is awesome, I know I'm just getting greedy. :-) I would just like to be able to triple click the ESV then switch to whichever Hebrew (or Greek) tool I want and have it know which word I want to see based on the info passed when I triple clicked. Otherwise, I'm just relooking up the same word over again using different methods. I want Accordance to be smarter than me and know what I want before I want it. :-)
