Floating and Docking the Windows

Bible Analyzer 4 introduces a new interface with an advanced window manager. The manager allows the floating and docking of windows in many different combinations and positions.  Double-clicking or dragging the caption of Dictionary, Commentary, or Results window will float the window allowing it to be repositioned and resized.

Floating windows can be docked by dragging the caption to the desired position shown by the docking indicators. Placing the cursor over a section of the docking indicator will display a faded hint window in the location where the window would be docked if the mouse button is released.

The main Toolbars can also be repositioned by dragging and also hidden or shown from the View Menu.

The image above shows the Dictionary Window still floating but the caption area being dragged to one of the docking indicators. The shaded blue area shows where the window would be docked if the mouse was released.

All window and toolbar positions are saved on exit and restored on next start. User layouts can also be saved.


MultiButton Control

There is a compact button control on the main toolbar that contains six buttons. These allow quick and convenient manouvering between windows.

·     The J(ump) button toggles whether a click on a expanded window will jump to the object of the click. That is, a click on a word will display (jump) to the definition in the current dictionary; a click on a reference will display the current commentary, etc.
·     The B(ible), D(ictionary), C(ommentary), R(esults) buttons will expand/contract the corresponding window. It will also cause the window to display if it has been closed and dock it if floating. A second click will expand the window.
·     The L(ayout) button opens the Layout menu allowing saving, deleting, and restoring saved layouts.
