What is it?

The Multiview Resources Tool is a feature that allows you to add guest resources to a host resource panel. All the visual filters and search results from the host resource are shared with the guest resources.

How does it work?

Add multiple translations of the Bible or even commentaries in the same panel with the Multiview Resources tool. The resources you bring together will share the same location, visual filters, and search results. Study original-language texts side by side with English translations. Search for a specific word and both texts will filter down to your search results. This tool treats multiple resources as one—and the applications to your study are endless.

Where can I learn more?

Very nice, I can now have related study bible notes show up when I want to quickly get additional information about the text at hand and just as quickly turn them off.so I can refocus on the text. Short-cut key is especially helpful in reading view. 

In setup below I have ESV, ESV Study Bible, Reformation Study Bible (ESV) and Lutheran Study Bible (ESV). Should work nicely to with NIV, NIV Zondervan Study Bible and Ryrie Study Bible (NIV) and other similar setups for other translations.  Fatihlife Study Bible could easily be thrown in the mix too but if often leads you deeper than when all you want to do is simple clarification on a point so I opted to leave it out.

I am enjoying this new feature. Possibly the best update in a while for the way I study the bible.

Agreed!  This is a very, very nice feature.  I'm liking the tight and compact layout of the multiview resource panes quite a bit.  They are much handier than throwing together the same link sets over and over again.

This is an amazing feature! I am curious how many are using this.....Anyone want to share how they are using this?

I find it useful with having the Greek text open and with the corresponding words filter it becomes even more useful......

Love this new tool. One suggestion: can you make it optional to show the multiple resource either side by side or below? This may work better for some layouts given the orientation of most monitors.

Thanks!

Thanks for the suggestion! I've passed it along to development.

Jacob,

Another suggestion: When using the multi view feature with lexicons, it would be great if there is not a corresponding entry that the resource would not display. For example TLOT is a great, but very targeted resource. If tied to HALOT and there is no corresponding entry, it would simply not display. this would allow for more targeted resources to be tied but not take up space if there is not corresponding entry. 

I think this currently works with the biblical reference resources such as commentaries.

Thanks

Just tried this, and you are correct.

As shown in my response to John above, I have one in a floating window for Greek lexicons and will build one for Hebrew lexicons soon.

Also have one floating window with concise commentaries. The presence of a Bible as host keeps things aligned better than putting a commentary first.

Then, I have one for my favorite Study Bibles—Actually this was my first creation. Recreated it with a Bible as host for the reason stated above.

My main screen features the NKJV. Then the floating windows have NIV84 and ESV because I am not sure I can create more than one Multiple Resource window with the same version. Perhaps I should try that.

NOTE: I have a 27" iMac which gives me plenty of room to spread the floating windows.

Jack, thanks for the tip. This makes it really easy to create floating windows with multiple resources that link easily to the biblical text.

This makes a lot of sense. I'll investigate on Monday.

It's kind of handy if you are reading multiple daily devotionals. Put all the devotionals in one panel, then create a shortcut to the main book. Then when you open that book each day, you'll get all the devotionals opened up to the same day.

I'm really liking the single interlinear ribbon shared by all the columns. With multiple Bibles in separate panes, each has its own ribbon showing only two or three words. With the shared ribbon spanning all the columns, much more context is visible.

It would be nice to be able to create a multiview resource out of the Vatican II Documents and the Vatican II Documents (Latin).  They are both indexed to the "Documents of Vatican II" index.
