It would be helpful to have the grammatical tag parsing guide included in the Instant Details for those of us who are still novice at Greek and Hebrew. An example of how this could work is:

-- Click and hold on a word shows Instant Details popover just as it does now
-- Command-click and hold on word shows Instant Details popover of key number just as it does now
-- Option-click and hold on word shows Instant Details popover with expanded information on the grammatical parsing
-- Command-option-click and hold on word shows Instant Details popover with key number info AND expanded grammatical info

For example, give the guide text for what "present," "middle," "participle," "masculine," "singular," and "nominative" mean like one would find in the Greek Parsing tool.

wishing G1014 bou/lomai boulomai
boulo/meno/ß boulomenos Verb present middle participle masculine singular nominative to will, want

Something that would be nice too is if the Instant Details window is open already, then allow for grammatical tags as links in the popover version of Instant Details which when hovered over will then show up in the Instant Details window. For example, click and hold on a word, popover shows up with grammatical tags with links, hover over a grammatical tag link and info on that tag shows up in the Instant Details window.

Thanks for your consideration,

The definitions are available in the Help. You will find them here: Comprehensive Reference > Grammatical Definitions.

I don't think we can or should do popovers or further instant details on popovers.

I can appreciate your desire to have assistance in learning the jargon, but I think the proposal would overload the simplicity of the program. The only additional feature which I would like to see in the popover options is to amplify right from the Popover—but I understand why this was not implemented. The triple click serves this function. On the other hand, there is a great deal of simplicity gained if the Mac app mimicked the iOS popover in this nature. Apple seems to be setting the precedence for symmetry between both an iOS and Mac experience—but I'm not a software engineer so take my comments with a grain of salt.

To help you learn the jargon quicker, you might consider purchasing the Zondervan Pocket Dictionaries. And perhaps setting up a grammar study WorkSpace, whereby you can set up an interlinear, some grammar and syntax helps, and some of the pocket dictionaries.
