The first Tab of the Commentary Panel is always the User Notes & Commentary. See that topic for more details

Working With Commentaries

Like the Dictionaries  and Bibles, Commentaries are navigated by Tabs.

To view a specific Comment either select a Reference in the Bible Panel (If Link to Reference is selected) or open the Verse List by clicking the Show/Hide Verse List Button and select a Verse from the Verse List, or begin typing a verse in the Verse Entry. The Verse List will scroll with each character entered. Either Left-Click the selection in the Verse List or press the Enter key and the Comment will display.

A Blue Book Icon (graphic) is displayed in the Commentary Tab(s) when the selected entry is found in that module. To view the entry, click the Tab.  The selected Commentary module will show the selected entry.

Any of the underlined references in any Commentary Panel will show a pop-up of the verse when the mouse cursor is placed over the reference. Also, a left-click on the reference will cause that verse to be displayed in context in the Bible Window. 

Shown with optional blue background color

The Drop-down Arrow will display a list of all the loaded Commentary modules even if some of the Tabs are hidden.

The Toolbar Buttons on the Commentary Panel from left to right are:

This will show/hide the Topic List. It is hidden by default.

The Verse List is hidden by default because of the huge size of some of the verse lists. When the Verse List is hidden, Bible Analyzer does not have to load the thousands of verses into the Verse List. When the Verse List is showing, a delay in performance may be noticed on older systems when selecting a new verse or different Commentary

The Commentary Tabs and Display is only updated from a Reference when the Link to Reference Button is on. If it is off and a reference is clicked in any panel, even in the Commentary Panel itself, the verse will display in context in the Bible Panel, but the Commentary Tabs and Display will not reflect the new verse.

The behavior of the Tabs and Modules is much the same as in the Dictionary Window.
