The "Research" is a very handy function to use. I am wondering, whether it is possible to search one verse, for example, gen 1:1, and only show the contents of the exactly paragraphs of each commentary? Which looks like what the function of "Add Parallel" shows? Because most of the time, when I use "Research" by verses, it will also show up more information than what I need and it takes a lot of time to filter them.

I am not 100% sure that I am getting the question but perhaps this will help. In the gear wheel menu of the Research tab there is an option to "Show Excerpts" or "Show Full Text". When I select full text it seems to show the full paragraphs.

 

Is this what you are looking for ?

 

Thx

Thanks, Dan, however, this is not what I am looking for. If you use a normal tab zone with a Bible text, then you can add parallel commentary tools which are directly move accompanied with the Bible text when you change to the other verse. For the contents of these commentaries, tools zones will normally start from the beginning of the texts of each commentary. I am wondering whether it is possible to do the similar way in research only show the verse paragraph in each commentary. It will be one paragraph for one commentary.

I'm sorry but think I'll have to leave this one to someone else. I don't know if what you are looking for can be done.

I suspect I'm still not quite understanding what you want but I rarely use commentaries in parallel panes to texts to be absolutely honest.

Hopefully someone who does can help better.

 

Thx

Right-click on a verse reference in your text and select "Research" and "Commentaries". That will open the Research pane with a search for the verse reference you right-clicked on. But this searches any commentary that includes any range of which your verse is a part. To narrow your focus to EXACTLY John 1:1, and nothing else, simply put an "=" sign in front of John 1:1 in the Research pane and hit "Return". This will dramatically narrow your search.
