Open verse list from commentary in new window?
Posted 30 March 2009 - 10:19 AM
When viewing a commentary, for example, and there is a list of scripture references on a line, I *thought* that you could COMMAND CLICK on the line with that verse reference list in it and it would open up a new verse reference tab. But now, it is opening up a new tab laid out exactly like my default settings window (with multiple panes, but strangely not with the exact font sizes, background colors, etc.) with the full text (context) of the first reference only.
Am I mis-remembering this feature? If so, how do I do what I want? I'm reading a commentary that gives a list of verses, I just want to open them up in a new tab with just those verses.
Thanks for any help.

This is still working fine for me. Are you sure you are clicking on the first link of the list, as opposed to the text of the entry? I've attached a screenshot of where I command-clicked, and it worked for me. Finally, you may have the 'Show All Text' button clicked at the top of your window. You are still then seeing all of the references, but since you are showing them in the entire biblical context, they are marked with bookmarks.
I am clicking on the verse reference, and the cursor changes to a magnifying glass when I hover over it, so I think I am in the right place. I do not have the "Show All Text" button checked. However, I see that earlier in the paragraph that I clicked on there is a reference to Exodus 1-15, so it's no wonder I thought it was purely a context reference. Using the forward/backward arrows on the bookmarks does take me to the next verses, which are individual verses.
Still, I am puzzled why it is opening in the "Starting Settings" pane format rather than just opening a new tab with only the verse reference list. Is that intended? Can I shut that off?

Actually, it's inserting a text pane with my primary translation before the others, so if I had eight panes on my starting window, I will have nine panes in the resulting window after I cmd-click on the verse references.
