I am enjoying the additional speed and efficiency in 4.3 for Mac. However there are a few items that have changed or I am having issues with that disrupt my workflow:

1. My information window is set to click, not hover. When I click on a word in an English RI, I get the definition for the surface text and then the lemma. In prior versions if I clicked on the lexicon link (EDNT), the lexicon would open to that entry. This link no longer works.

2. The text comparison tool is somewhat touchy. In the example below I opened the tool and then changed the last text from the AMP to the NRSV. You will notice that the link is still to the AMP. Lastly it appears the font has changed on this tool and cannot be adjusted.

Again, I appreciate the effort put into this update.

John, I feel your pain. This broke early in the beta process. It has been known over the course of 7 beta cycles and 3 rc's. This issue has been repeatedly raised, however, this seemingly simple item to fix, that did once work, was never given the attention. It is a frustrating pattern that has been well documented in the forums.

John -

I seem to be having the same difficulty.

Thanks for the confirmation. Hopefully they will have opportunity to address these issues soon.

Likewise can replicate both issues.  Workaround option for lemma is right click on word in Reverse Interlinear, click Lemma or Strong's number for quick lookup in 10 lexicons (top 5 prioritized Lemma's, top 5 prioritized Strong's), thread => searching strong's numbers includes screen captures of my library priorities.

Also noticed information lookup for Strong's highest priority does not match right click:

Note: clicking on "Vine's Expository" or "LXGRCANLEX" in Information highlights entry instead of following link to resource (wonder if clickable area for link needs to be brought forward).

Thanks for the workaround. I am aware of it. Hopefully they can return the function to its previous state as well as maintain consistency with the windows version.

I should probably be more specific: the issue with the Information Panel should be fixed in an SR. I'm not sure what the status is on the comparison tool.

When originally reported, it was unclear to us that the problem with the Information Panel was a regression (as opposed to something that had never worked on Mac). Sorry about that!
