Is there a way to lock in the Bible Explorer results once it is done? I find it frustrating that after it took so long to return results, I lost the results as I click on any Bible window. I want to be able to view other Bible verses after I get these results. I could understand (but would not love it) if the window that was active when I lauched Bible Explorer controlled what is displayed in the Bible Explorer window. But I would prefer that I be able to type in a reference in the Bible Explorer window and then browse to other places without this window doing another search on whatever verse I go to.

After messing around a bit I determined that Bible Explorer defaults to "Follow" whatever Bible you click on. So if I have multiple windows open, it will display results for whatever Bible I click on, not just the one that was active when I launched it. To prevent this from happening, you have to click on the Bible Explorer Resource Panel and choose None for the Link Set.

Harry,

Click on the orange/white star in the Bible Explorer window pane, then select to "None" from the Link Set.

My constant lament during Beta testing.

When Bible Explorer OR Power Lookup (etc.) are triggered by a right click from a word or bible verse the default should NOT be to follow.

This is absurd. How are we possibly supposed to go through the information in these tools when as soon as we access an item the tool changes....

I have a problem that I can set Bible Explorer to no links and leave it open in the layout.  If I shut down Logos 4 and start it back up, it's been reset to follow again.  I reverted to using a custom PG since it doesn't have this problem.

Can I also add my pitch for the Bible Explorer - a most excellent tool - to be set the Link Set to default at "None" when opened.

Thank you.

+1 on the request to not follow by default.

I agree

Logos4catholics Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

You can open up 2 or more Bible Explorers and link one to say, "A", "B" and "None"

I made a copy of the Bible Explorer(right click on tab, select Open Copy in a new tab), and set the first to follow, the second to not. Saved it to my layout, problems solved.

Now I whish I could rename the tabs Surprise

When I right click and open a copy.. they both still "Follow" I have to set one to "None"

I have the same problem with Information, which changes as soon as you move the cursor. I want to be able to look at other verses or explore links in the Information Window without changing the content in the Information window. There should be an settings option like in version 3 called "Automatically Display Information". I would turn it off as I did in version 3.

while hovering over the word you want to explore, hold down the CTRL key. while holding it down move your curser to the information window and you'll be able to move around it. I think this is the answer your after.
