Here’s a simple example.  I wanted to insert a screen print, but am new to the forum and don’t yet know how.

I have just two tiles open.  One tile has two Bible tabs.  The other tile has just one tab -- Text Comparison.  All three tabs are linked to letter “A”.

When I first enter a scripture passage (e.g. Matthew 28:1) in either one of the Bible tabs, the resources for all three tabs move to that passage.  But if I subsequently use the left mouse button to select a different verse (e.g. Verse 10), from the text in the active Bible tab, the reference in the passage field for that tab changes from Matthew 28:1 to Matthew 28:10, but… the passage field values remain at Matthew 28:1 in the other Bible tab and in the Text Comparison tile and there is no change in the text in those tabs.

All three tabs do stay in sync if I use the scroll wheel to scroll through the text in either of the Bible tabs, but a single click off the scroll wheel may cause the passage to jump multiple verses, skipping over the verse of interest.  All three tabs also stay in sync if using the up and down arrows to move one verse at a time in either of the Bible tabs.  The same is true (they all stay in sync) if using the “right” mouse button to click on a verse, but right-clicking also opens a context sensitive popup menu which I don’t want.

So if I want to look at Matthew 28:1, then move to Matthew 28:10, I have to do one of the following three things to get to Matthew 28:10.

  • Type Matthew 28:10 in the passage reference field.
  • Use the down arrow 9 times.
  • Right-click on verse 10, then close the popup menu that opens.

Does the left mouse button work for anyone in this scenario?

The behavior you describe is the same that I get when I tested it.

You might want to try cycling through the verses this way.

  1. Enable the Location Bar (see the tile menu)
  2. Set the option to Verses
  3. Click the down arrow to move through verses sequentially.

You can find guidance on how to insert pictures like I did above at

Thanks for the quick reply, Kevin.  Yes--the method in your reply corresponds to the 2nd bullet point option listed at the end of my initial post.  I was hoping there was a better way than having to go "click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click" on the down arrow to get to verse 10.  Smile  I hope the way the left mouse button behaves in this scenario is a "bug" VS. a "feature" and that it will be fixed down the road.

In the meantime, I'll check out the link you provided for inserting screen shots.  And speaking of "links", I guess I should also find a link to a Wiki URL that explains how to add links to posts.  Wink

Thanks again for your help!
