While I am reading a commentary, sometimes I need the bible text at the same time to be able to follow the argument, I can't see how  (and perhaps its not possible) to open up the bible along side a commentary. Is it possible?


My top 5 feature requests:
  1. 15pt font size for reading text (bible, journal articles, commentaries, etc...)
  2. Improved searching for Journal articles. (So we can search for journal article by verse + english text)
  3. Display Journal titles in journal search results. (Imagine a google search where you saw the page text but no headings?)
  4. Improved greek text search—i.e. allow searching of all greek text the same way you would search LXX+NT, i.e. LXX+NT+ApocFathers+etc...
  5. Phrase (sympathetic) highlighting.

You Need the bible on the left pane and commentary on right pane.

You can only open two panes from text so open bible first.

Tools only support one pane so if you open a commentary first, you cant add a second pane.
