Post Linking multiple dictionaries failure
I love this software, but I've been experiencing an annoying phenomenon.
Tell me if this happens to anyone else, or if I can do something to resolve it.

The Issue:
I want to use two dictionaries at once (Mickelson and KJC). With one BibleView window and two DictionaryView windows open, I click on a strongs number within the BibleView, but only one dictionary (Mickelson) displays the content. The second dictionary window remains unchanged. If I un-link the first dictionary (by toggling the "link" toolbar button), then the second dictionary works as expected.

Whether I interchange the modules between the two windows or also if I last activate either window before clicking a strongs number, it produces the same results.

If I change the dictionaries to something else (like BDB and HOTC), then once I click on a strongs number, the last dictionary to have focus changes to Mickelson, and the second window remains unchanged.

Commentaries do not behave this way. I can have two commentaries open, and both update as I scroll from verse to verse.

My Settings:
Mickelson's is set as my default Strong's dictionary.
The link button is selected in both dictionary windows (plus "Link Dictionaries...", "Commentaries", and "if inactive" in the related dropdown menu as well).
On "Word Click Options", all five boxes are checked
On "Word Lookup Dictionaries", I've tried both checking and unchecking "Lookup words in dictionaries as mouse moves over Bible viewer", and when checked, selecting all dictionaries that I want to use. I even tried using "Separate Dictionary sets" to no avail.

I am using The Word version 5.0.0.1450 on a Windows 7 64-bit PC.
So what can be done?
