Working With Dictionaries

The Dictionaries are navigated by Tabs very much like the Bibles. To view a specific Topic either select a Topic from the Topic List, or begin typing in the Topic Entry and the Topic List will scroll with each character.

Any of the underlined references in any Dictionary 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. 


The Drop-down Arrow will display a list of all the loaded Dictionary modules even if some of the Tabs are hidden.  (See image below). The titles in Dark Red show the current entry is in that title.

The definition can optionally be displayed in the main Dictionary Window by making a change in Preferences.

When a word is left-clicked it will be looked up in the default dictionary. With the Alt key down, the word will be looked up in the current dictionary.
