While it might be wonderful to have totally flexible arrangements of the panes, we do have to be practical. How would that be programmed, and more importantly, how would the user control and determine the arrangement. These interface issues are very important to us. Right now you have an upper switch button to toggle between the vertical and horizontal arrangements, and pane switch buttons to move a pane between the upper and lower rows. Plus you can drag the bar of a pane to rearrange it. This all works cleanly without requiring a totally new interface element.
These I am aware of and use variations of these arrangements. And I'm very happy with these improvements to flexibility from older versions.
Even if there were sufficient demand for this new feature to justify the programming investment, we would also need to come up with an interface. We have so many exciting new features in the pipeline, should we delay them for this?
I confess, my request is purely based on whim and personal preference with zero
understanding of the kind of programming work it would take to implement it. If it is something that would delay other really cool "features in the pipeline" then certainly do not
"delay them for this." However, I would certainly appreciate it being put on the list of possible things to do, be it 6 months or 5 years from now when you all actually consider
I guess, I was wanting a little more flexibility to an already flexible and versatile tool.
As I think about it. I could probably construct a work around. I could have two tiled work spaces, one with the bible text from top to bottom and another with multiple panes and tie the two so they scroll together. This could work sufficiently, but it wouldn't provide the seamlessness of having it all within one tab. But I guess this will remain in my list of out-of-reach hopes and dreams
Thanks for all your hard work and innovation (and responses to all the demands both great and small from your users)!
