Post How to stop switching between
Hi,

Is there any way to stop the focus goes every time to the List view when sending a verse to a List? Any toggle switch?

Thank you.

I don't think there is a way to stop the switching ( I could be wrong).
I would suggest opening another Bible window and make at "always floating" and send the verses to that.

Yes, that switching has ALWAYS been an irritation to me, too. Sorry.

At some point 3.0.7 an option was added to change this behaviour.

jump.to.verse.list.on.add=0


Default is 1 (true). Set to 0 if you don't want the Bible view to change to List when you add a verse to the current list (using CTRL+L, the menu, etc)

Just need to add it to the config.ini under the [General] section

This info is in the help manual under the section of 'working directly with the config.ini'

This setting does not appear to be effective in dnd from the search results. Probably a good thing.

Thanks. Nice trick! I did not know that one.

I would say that the solution you offer is a tiny bit complicated for the average user who knows nothing about programming, config.ini files, etc. In the long run, I would suggest adding it to the preferences, wouldn't you agree?

This is true of all the 'working directly with the config.ini options', however it is not been possible with Costas limited time resource to do this.

I see. I can certainly sympathize.

In fact, I never read through that chapter from the "help file," as I assumed that it was oriented more toward developers and programmers, or else toward functions that only more daring users would be interested in.

(You know how it is, whenever we are taught a hack that involves modifying the system registry; we always get a warning to back up the registry, and to be extremely careful, and so on, to the point that most of us just get scared off and don't even try the hack after all.)

So, regarding the chapter on Advanced Functions, I didn't know that it was a list of work-arounds and future improvements in progress for users that did not want to wait for them to be integrated into the GUI; otherwise I would have looked into it myself.

Maybe that section should be re-vamped to sound a little more user friendly. It could be re-named "Additional customizing options," (rather than "advanced functions"). That new title sounds more inviting and less venturesome.

The chapter could also include an introductory paragraph that said something like this:

"TheWord has even more useful features that will eventually be integrated into the menus or other visual aspects of the interface. For the time being, they can be easily enabled manually. In other words, instead of choosing your preferences using buttons and check-boxes, you simply type them into a little document called the "config.ini" file, located inside the main TheWord folder. In the next section you will learn how."
