The 9.3 beta 1 release notes have:

Sermon Builder

  • Added a word count/time estimate pop-up to the Sermon Builder.

This seems to be a small permanent floating indicator at the bottom right of the panel and it is no longer visible in the info pane. Is this correct / is this how it is intended to function?

I like the ability to see a time estimate without having to have the info panel open but I'm not keen on it where it is as it obscures a small part of the sermon text. Could the popup be made optional so I can choose whether it is visible or not?

Totally agree Graham. I like having it where it can be seen, but it is in the wrong place. It would be better if you could move it.

I just wanted to flag this again - and would like a response from someone at Faithlife.

As can be seen from the screenshot below, this popup obscures part of the text of the sermon which means I can't see part of what I am writing. Please can this be addressed

Microsoft Word's placement at the bottom of the window is ideal; it's small, doesn't cover anything up, costs very little real estate, but is always present. For what it's worth, I prefer the current placement over having to go looking for it, but would rather have it not covering up text.

We have moved this to a status bar at the bottom in 9.4 Beta 2.
