Post Can't use mouse to select verse.
The chapter list always come up to the far left and when I move the mouse, the chapter list changes to what ever the mouse passes over making it unusable except on a touch screen - I have tested this on two different tablets (one is 8.1" display and the other 11.6").

It is a known problem, but the exact reason why the control does not behave.... I don't know.
It does work perfectly in Linux under WINE.
I can't recall if Costas reported the issue to the programmer of the control, and if so if it will be fixed.

@Costas, comment please.

These are standard windows menus, no custom control or anything.
Normally the chapter's menu should popup on the left if there is not enough space, something that should happen only for the books in the last column. I don't know why you always get it to the left. I cannot repeat it myself in Windows 10.
On my computer, even in that situation a quick move of the mouse makes it possible to 'target' the menu.

I orginally thought it may be a problem with the display driver, but by it happening on two different tablets that can't be. One thing that is in common about both the tablets is that they are touch screen.

Can't follow this, I would think it would popup on top if there wasn't enough room????

Works fine on my regular laptops, but no matter what I do with the mouse on the tablets, it doesn't - it will either jump to another book or remove the popup as normal with mouseover.

OK so that part is standard Windows control... So this won't get resolved.

So, I suggest using a floating Bible tree window (F8)

Thanks for the F8, but the location of the popup has got to have a "position" attribute. The way it normally works is relative to what is being selected by the mouse and that position has to be programmed - it is probably a module written and compiled by someone and just inserted into theWord.

I just tried Costas' quick move of the mouse makes it possible to 'target' the menu. and that does work, so I will use that until "Costas" gets it fixed :)

Just kidding,
God bless you both.
