When I have an outline on Paper, I click on a verse and a Bible opens up.  Is there a way that Accordance could have a Bible open up that has the search window in it so we can just type another verse and it'll jump right to it instead of having to open another Bible and tie tabs.  I think it'll make life easier.  I do like the ability to click "show all text," but even then, the verse you need to look up it's like in the middle in red instead of at the top.  Is there anyway that could be fixed too (having the actual verse on top on red even if "show all text" is on).  Having these two capabilities would really help.  1) Search window on the same Bible opened by Paper when clicking on a verse to be able to type other verse references and 2) Have the verse show at the top of the Bible even when the "show all text" function is on.

Am I making sense?

Thanks! :D

 

Ps. I could've sworn (or maybe I was dreaming) that during one of the updates a search window for verses was available on the Bible that was opened by Paper when clicking on a verse.  Anyway, hopefully that change can come in a future update.

Thank you for the feedback!  Regarding (1), we'll consider this as an option moving forward, but really the purpose of a Search tab is when you want to search.  If you are simply referencing or reading verses, the Text tab you see there should be sufficient.  Have you tried typing your verse in the bottom right corner to jump to it?  Really, the only thing missing from this tab is the search box, so I wonder how necessary it is.  Regarding (2), the verse showing slightly off from the top is actually a deliberate decision.  If we are showing all text, surely the text before the verse is fairly important to the context, like the verse afterwards.  Otherwise, people would always have to be scrolling up to see what was right before the verse.

Thank you for the tips Joel! Iโ€™m going to have to try that. I didnโ€™t really think about that box at the bottom. As far as the other one it makes sense what you were saying about previous context verses. I guess itโ€™s just a matter of getting used to it.

Thanks ๐Ÿ‘๐ŸŒž๐Ÿ‘Œ

Sweet! Thanks Joel! The lower right hand corner little box worked like a charm! Now I'm able to type other verses that may come to mind and it'll jump right to it! No more opening another Bible, unless it's a different version for comparison purposes.  

 

Thanks again!
