Running Verbum 7.13.0.0017 on Windows, typing "Praxis" into the GO box on the Home screen and hitting enter runs a Topic Guide template that categorically prevents tabs being opened on the right side of the window. Only running a proper Topic Guide or Passage Guide from the Home screen seems to re-activate the right side of the window; even closing the problematic Topic Guide tab is not sufficient to resolve the problem.

You can activate that from the Layouts menu - choose the 2 Tiles icon at top left. Then you can drag a Tool/Guide/Document from the menu, or an open tab, into it.

Your workaround works, but the bug remains.

Let Faithlife decide...

If you enter a word like premium it will open a Search panel that occupies the full window; which is inconsistent to say the least. If you want to best utilise the space it also requires the 2-tile workaround.

That is an interesting inconsistency. I have no problem with the topic guide for "praxis" (only) covering the left half of my screen... I just want to still be able to use the right half.

This has been fixed in 7.15 Beta 1.

Dave,

You are correct, I’ve edited the release notes to reflect that.
