Has anyone else noticed that when a tabbed resource is opened in a floating window, it opens about three lines further down into the text than what it displayed when tabbed?  (I have the locator bar shown in both, if that makes any difference.)  The problem is that after searching for a phrase or another piece of text, that is nicely highlighted by the vanishing circle, when opened in a floating window, the text that had the circle appear at has now disappeared, requiring scrolling to find out where it was again.  This has become quite annoying due to its repetitive nature when looking up commentaries and losing place in the text almost each time. Note that it only happens when the text shown starts within a paragraph - if it starts at a new pericope or entry in a dictionary, it seems to keep its place.  But this is very frequent when viewing commentaries.  Finding the place in the text is made worse if the width of the floating window is different to that of the tabbed window, as the paragraph text is wrapped differently in each.  In fact, the difference in how the text is wrapped may be the cause of the problem. One solution could be to have the first complete word displayed in the tabbed window have the disappearing circle highlight it in the floating window, at whatever position it appears in the newly wrapped paragraph text, also making sure that it is visible and not wrapped further up the window beyond that which is visible.

Yes, mainly commentaries do this.

John, you only have a window of a certain number of hours (I think it's 18?) after which you can no longer edit your posts.

Thanks Rosie - that makes sense.

No worries that you couldn't edit the title to say "BUG:" John. I've logged it as a bug on the wiki, so it should get noticed now.

I don't know what version you're using, but I was able to reproduce this problem in 4.0b Beta 7, so that's the version I reported it in, but I attributed the bug report to you.

Thanks Rosie - I'll log it there next time I have something similar.
