This morning I decided to experiment a little. I've got my Bible text open, and am looking at commentaries. Rather than opening up one commentary at a time, I thought I would open all those I'm interested in, and then use the keyboard to cycle through them. The problem is that Control-Tab (  I've also used Command-Shift-]  ) doesn't cycle through the tabs in my commentary panel, it cycles through ALL the tabs in ALL the panels.

Isn't there a way to cycle, from first to last, through the tabs in a particular panel?

What am I doing wrong?

Try Ctrl+PageUp and Ctrl+PageDown

I'm using a laptop, so no Page keys. Thanks for the suggestion, though.

Here's my suggestion for achieving a *similar* workflow to what you're attempting:

1. Create a collection containing the commentaries you wish to use.

2. Select the "show in parallel resources" checkbox

3. Open one of the chosen commentaries, then from the parallel resources button click the header of the column containing your collection.

NOTE: If you have multiple collections that are shown in parallel resources, you may need to navigate to another panel.

4. BINGO! You can cycle through the chosen commentaries using only the left/right arrow keys!

That's an interesting idea, thanks. I hadn't thought about using collections in this way.

I don't suppose there's a way to create a Collection from currently open resources, is there? That would be a great feature to have.

On my laptop I can use Fn + Up/Down key for Page Up/Down. Pretty sure that all laptops have some way to do it.

You can do it in two steps:

  • Create Bibliography from open resources
  • Create Collection from Bibliography

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

Got it, thanks, that's helpful in a lot of ways

That works on my Mac, too, but it's paging down in the open resource, not cycling through tabs in that panel. Thanks for the suggestion, though, it was worth a shot.

In this case, you need to add Ctrl of course (Ctrl+Fn+Up/down)

Tried that, Ctrl-FN-Up/Down does nothing at all. Tried Shift-FN, Option-FN, CMD-FN, no dice. Thanks for the suggestion, though.
