When I search, for example, the journal library, and it shows, say,100 results, all I can see is a short text snippet, but it doesnt show the heading of the title/article it came from. I have to manually mouseover the text to make the title popup. This can be annoying to have to mouse over all 100 text snippets. Is this normal, or is it a config thing unique to my computer?  

 

I note that there is no config/text formatting option for this panel.

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.

So does this mean it's not a bug, Accordance is intending to hide the name of the research each search result belongs to?

I think the intention was simply to reduce clutter, that to see more information you would mouseover a snippet that interested you.

Ok, cool, I wasn't sure if it was just my computer bugging out. Reducing clutter really is important.

 

But in this case (Im not sure about other people) but when I am doing a journal search, i.e. "Journal articles that mention eschatology and 2 Cor 3" and then I scan down the results, I am not interested in the text of the article, but the title of the article to see if it comes near to what I am looking for, which means I have to mouseover every search result.    

 

So put succinctly, i my head, I am doing a search for "The titles of all journals articles that contain xyz data".

I reckon a keyboard shortcut or option to be able to toggle these details on and off would be a great feature.

 

Default would be off but can be switched on for those times when you want to.
