Will tooltips and links be added to the morph parts like the LN and other word info entries have?  I hope so - they would be very helpful.

Tim. would you please expand a bit on what you want? the morphology is already "translated" in the text that follows. Are you wanting tooltips to provide definitions based on the morphology scheme?

As I recall, in the old version of the information panel, you used to be able to hover over a morph term, like "nominative" and a tooltip gave you a brief definition, and if you clicked on the morph term, it would open a dictionary with more info on that term.

I see what you mean. Yes, I remember that as well. Before the Info Panel "make-over" (which is nice and more helpful) you could hover your cursor over "genitive" and it would give you a little pop-up that would give a brief explanation of what a genitive was. I would like to see that returned as well.

I know this doesn't entirely address the issue raised, but it might be an adequate solution to what you're looking for. In the word-by-word section of the exegetical guide, you have exactly this ability. Simply hover over words like "genitive" and you'll get a pop-up with definition:

I hope this helps!

I'll create a case to get this fixed. Smile

Hi Jacob - thank you for the tip, but as you probably know, we users are click-sensitive, especially when we had a shorter path in the past.

Hi Angela - thank you for creating a case for this.  My Greek morphology is weak (and Hebrew morphology is a big blank).  These quick tooltip reminders and direct access to the dictionaries are very helpful.

I agree with Tim. Please do not remove features that were in previous versions if you can avoid doing so.
