How can I get the Text Comparison tool on the right-click menu? When I right click on a text reference in a monograph or commentary, I would like to have the option of automatically opening up the Text Comparison tool to that verse. Right now the only way I know to use it is to go up to the menu, open it, then type in my verse and execute. I would like to streamline this some.

You can press the F7 key for Text Comparison

To clarify, if you are in a commentary and hover your mouse pointer over a verse and then get a popup.  While that popup is displayed, you can hit F7 and you will get the text comparison of that verse.  (If you want the text comparison tool to open, just click inside the text comparison display anywhere and the text comparison tool will open and your can modify the translations you want to compare.)

Excellent! Thanks Jerry and Bro. Mark! Exactly what I was looking for.

One more quick question--When I open Text Comparison, it always opens as a 3rd panel docked on the far right of my screen. I would prefer it to always open a floating window. Is this possible?

Only if you right click on the tool or the tab and choose "open in a floating window".

To clarify, it won't open in a floating window, it will always open in that third panel (depending on your layout it may be a different numbered panel, but always a dedicated panel).  Then, you can right click it into a floating window.

Brother Mark:
To clarify

Please forgive my straight forward manner of speech.  I truly meant no offence.  I always appreciate your comments on the forum and meant no harm.

Okay, Brother Mark ... I'm now perplexed. 'It will always open in that third panel' ... 'Then you can right click it into a floating window.'

The word 'always'? At least for my installation, a right-click from the start can pop it into a floating window. Or did I get confused?

To clarify (with profound apologies to Jerry for not putting a smiley in my previous clarification, to make it clear that I was being playful), the right click is done on the Text Comparison tab vs. the comparison text.

I hate seeing people only halfway confused so I'll try to push you over the line by giving another suggestion. Big Smile At least, I don't think this one has been given yet. Let me know if you do not understand how to do any of the following.

1. Put the text comparison tool on your shortcut bar.

2. If you want the text comparison tool open on your main window (as opposed to a floating window) simply drag the icon from the shortcut bar to where you want the text comparison to be.

3. If you want it in a new window, right click the shortcut and select "open in floating window" from the drop down menu.

This will save you the step of going to the tool menu or from hitting the F7 button.

Yet another suggestion for Text Comparison is setting Link Set to Follow so can scroll in Bible(s) with Text Comparison following verse change(s).
