Using theWord Commentary Links

Using theWord Commentary Links

Using theWord Commentary Links is a tutorial post on how to see and use commentary links (popups with the text for the verse).

Class Objective: To study through a portion of Scripture in the BibleView Window, using commentary links popups to lookup various commentaries on specific verses.



So what we are going to do in this class is to simply go over how to use the Commentary Links in the BibleView window. To use this feature of theWord, you will first need to open a BibleView window. Another requirement here, you will need to download some commentaries to use this feature.

Go to my module site, www.twmodules.com to the bookshelf page (http://www.twmodules.com/module-lists/), and there I have a dozen list pages with commentaries to download.

To quickly do this, in the left-hand column of the BibleView Window (press F11 to open a BibleView window if one is not open), and then at the bottom of the left-hand menu of icons, click on the wheel or cog (BibeView Window Options). Go down to Commentary Links, and click it.



A shortcut for this is to click in the BibleView window, and press “L” (no control, no shift, no alt keys, just “L”). This toggles the commentary links on and off.

Note: You may not see the left-hand menu Icons in your BibleView. If this is the case, then press Ctrl+T to toggle it on/off or hide/show.





What you should be seeing now is your BibleView window with a bunch of links under each verse, something like this…

Again you will note that this doesn’t work if you don’t have commentaries installed. Moreover, it isn’t worth much if you don’t have GOOD COMMENTARIES installed, so go to my site and download some.




In the image above, you will see passage of 1Corinthians 14 with the commentary links in yellow-gray. Passing the mouse over them will get the popup. If you have problems reading the entire contents of the popup, press shift and click in the popup window and now you can scroll it if it is more than what appears on the screen.
