I notice frequently that the "ctrl F" window obscures the word/verse one is searching for.  Is there any possibility that in future releases this will be rectified?  Because it hangs down over the highlighted find:

I think allowing the beginning of the verse to show just below the box would be ideal:

 

Thank you!

While this doesn't correct the problem, it is a work-around:  If you have the locator bar bar displayed (Ctrl+Shift+L or select if from the arrow menu by the book cover in your picture above), it adds a bar that moves the text down, so it won't be covered up by the Find bar...  I keep the locator bar on for all my resources - just a personal preference.

Tom, this works just fine, thanks!  I suppose we could quibble about having to have the locator pane showing, but it works for me.  Actually, at least in books, I have liked the locator pane.  I didn't in L3, but have in L4.  I didn't even realize (Embarrassed) that you could turn it on and off (should have known that, from L3 days).  Your suggestion helped me discover how to do that.
