When I use this tool under there interlinear option what do the little numbers mean?

I checked help and the tool documentation sheet but didn't see them mentioned on there.

It would also need helpful if the tool documentation was linked to it somehow. I didn't when know it had a help file until I saw it in the new resources section

The numbers show the sequence of the text when it is presented out of order. In Interlinear view, the version you pick first to be the top line is given in its order, and other lines may be presented out of their order. But, you can read those lines in the order that the numbers indicate.

The documentation should definitely mention this. I'm sorry it doesn't; I'll make sure it does as soon as possible.

If you're on Windows, you can press F1 while you're in the tool to get help. I don't think there's an equivalent Mac keystroke. You can always type help into the command bar at the top of the main application window and that will open the help resource, which should have documentation for all the features. If you then click on the inline search (magnifying glass) button on the help resource toolbar, you can type the name of the tool and thus find its documentation.

Hope that helps!

Neat. Thank you Eli. I tried the basic help file but that didn't say much. Then I saw the seperate tool documentation in my library and that was much better.

What I meant was if you click on the I in a circle it would be great if there was a link to that document. I'll try the way you described later.

Thank you
