Two Linked BibleView Windows

Two Linked BibleView Windows

Class Objective: In this class, we show you how to open two BibleView Windows, and link them for viewing verses in one from the other window.




Why would you want to do this?

First of all, you must understand that theWord has a “default” manner of showing verses. This is for basic use. What I mean by that is that when a BibleView window has verse references in it (this can be from cross-references, from a commentary showing in the BibleView window, etc), then the default behavior of TW is to move the Bible to that reference when you click on it. This is basically okay and good, but maybe not always.

For example, if you are studying a passage in John, and you have various other things open, such as TSK as a commentary in that BibleView Window. In this case, you want the Bible in that BibleView to stay open to your sermon study passage (in John). So you can only mouseover the verse references, but if you click on them, you will move the Bible to them. You need to move the Bible to them to copy them into the clipboard for example.

Opening another BibleView window will help you overcome this cumbersomeness.




Click on the icon below the eye which is like a new Bible window icon (or just make sure you are in the BibleView window and click W). This will duplicate your Bible Window. Now in the new window click on the eye icon, and it will be the target for when you click on Bible verses in the first BibleView window.
