Take a look at this, I've search for the Acts 6:7 in this commentary and got a list of places it occurs, but I don't understand how to GO to any of those places. What am I missing?

You don't need to "Go" anywhere

The inline search is just showing the articles containing your search term.

Or am I missing your point?

Because the references are ambiguous - equally referring to the reference in a bible as well as in the commentary, you have to right click it and select a Link to the commentary on the RHS (if it is also a resource link)  e.g.

Otherwise clicking will take you to the natural destination for a bible reference i.e. your preferred bible

Not working. I can't capture the pop-up like you did because when I click on my screen capture app the pop-up goes away. I tried searching for "Paul" instead of Acts 6:7 then right clicking on one ocurrance and didn't get anything on the right side of the pop-up.

I'm searching in a particular book, a commentary on Hebrews. The only reason I have for searching is to actually go to the places in the book where the text "Acts 6:7" occurs. I suppose if I wanted to just look at an article that contained the word I could, but I expect the in-line search to let me actually go to where the search-text occurs because it works that way when I search a Bible.

Try changing the option above the search string from "Sentence" to "Article". This will allow you to see then entire context of the search results. You can navigate between results by changing the "Article" option in the locator bar to "Search Result" and then using the up and down arrow buttons.

IMO, this ought to happen automatically in a resource when an inline / intra-resource (Ctrl-F) search is open / active.

So here's what your suggestion led me to. If I search Four Views on the Warning Passages in Hebrews for Paul, with the setting on Sentence, I will get this, which you can see does include links that will take me to the desired location:

However, when I do the same search in "Hebrews.The New American Commentary" I get this, which has no such links:

So, so far, it seems the issue relates to the particular reference work, something I don't understand.

Further information about searching "Allen, David L. Hebrews. The New American Commentary. Nashville, TN: B & H Publishing Group, 2010."

If I scroll down in the search results eventually I'll come to links that will take me to the search results:

Clicking on Hebrews 1:2 shown above will take me to the very place the excerpt is located, not the start of the commentary on Heb 1:2 (which can be pages long) which is just what I need and expect.

However the multiple results for "Paul" that land in the extensive portion of the book before the verse-by-verse commentary don't provide any way to get to them.

Have a great day,

Changing Article to Search Results allows click on arrows to navigate Search Results:

Copied resources to new Tab followed by changing Article to Search Result then used down arrow to jump forward to next Search Result.

Well, maybe it helps your understanding a bit to see the Inline Search not as a replacement for the Ctrl-F find, but as a Filter, which in fact it is: you are already there, you don't need to "get to them" since you view a filtered version of the resource that only shows the search hits plus surrounding text (the size of those chunks is determined by the Sentence / Article / Paragraph selection).  

So the question is not to go there, but to know "where am I now", when you jump from one search hit to the next. For me, it helps leaving the ToC open (click the two pointed arrows >> top left in yours screenshot to open it), since the current chapter is bolded:

hope this helps a bit. Clicking on a milestone tag like "Hebrews 1:1" opens a new tab to that position - seems this works only for indexed positions

Oh, I understand the problem now. The grey headers at the start of each section are not displaying. I haven't yet been able to recreate this problem, but I'll do some more investigation.

This is a bug in the application.

You can work around the problem by entering any page number in the navigation box at the top of the panel and hitting enter. Then rerun your search. This will change the default navigation to be based on page numbers for that resource, which will allow the headers to be correctly displayed.

This should be fixed in the next release.

Thanks for the tip about Search Results, perhaps it will be useful but I don't see how at this time. I still maintain that normally the Inline Search allows me to see a list of places something is found in a book in a way that allows to me to look at its immediate context and so quickly select which place I want to go to and allows me to go immediately to the location in the book where my search hit. In this book however that usual functionality works in part of the book but not all of it.

This is now fixed in 6.12.
