This tip is given to help you hone your theWord skills.
Quick Finding a verse
SITUATION: Let’s say you are writing something within theWord (in a BookView Window). You want to insert a verse. Where is that verse that says you should worship only God? Well, you remember part of it, that it is in Matthew 4 in the temptation of Jesus in the desert, but you don’t remember exactly where it is.
SOLUTION: Because you know that theWord uses automatic versification, you can use this to your advantage to easily and quickly find the verse. I call this “Quick Finding a Verse”. (Note. I know the word versification does not exist formally, but for use in Bible Software, this is the process of making links to the Bible for verse references.)
1. Type the first part of the reference, the Book and chapter. “Mat 4”. Hit space, and it is versified.
2. Move the cursor over the just made reference.
What you notice here is the popup box with the entire chapter of Matthew 4 in it.
3. Now shift and move the cursor into the box, and slide the right bar down until you find the verse you want.
This way you can quickly find your exact verse reference. Of course, this presumes you know the right Book of the Bible and chapter, but even so, it is very quick.
