Post Clicking Book-search results makes TW hijack wrong window
When I do a Bible search, and click on the results, the corresponding verse always appear in the active Bibleview window, I believe.

However, this kind of behavior does not occur in Book searches. I have about eight bookview windows open simultaneously. Can anyone tell me which one is used to display the results from a book-search?

Does it depend on which window is nearest to the book-search-view?

Does it depend on which window was the last window used before performing the search?

Does it depend on which window was active when I began the search? (this would be the most LOGICAL behavior to me)

Does it depend on the size of the windows? Sometimes I wonder.

I can never predict which window will be used, and consequently, I usually lose part of my window layout, having to go back and re-select whichever module was in the bookview window, before my click on the search-results caused the window to display another module. Ideally I may like to keep my top-most window on the left side of the screen as dedicated to the purpose of displaying all bookview search results, but TW will not allow such consistency in behavior.

If there is no clear answer to this issue, my suggestion is that you make it such that, when clicking on any search result, the corresonding link will always display the informaiton in the last-used (active) bookview window, regardless of where it is on the screen, how big it is, and how often it had been used up until that point. Otherwise, perhaps the top-most window on the left side, or perhaps you would allow the user the option of choosing which window should be used always, regardless of whether it was active. In any case, it ought to be consistent or else predictable.

It looks like that's probably not the answer you're looking for: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=6868&p=35690

It might still help to know how you have it set?

Oops.

Jeff, I did not realize that I had already posted this complaint back in February. My memory is failing me.

I also apologize for not responding to your comment back then. I hardly ever do that, so I somehow missed your post. I am very sorry. I make a point of responding to any suggestion, whether good or bad.

As the original post has a screenshot, allow me to continue the discussion here: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=6868&p=35690

Hopefully someone will delete today's post here on this page, in the meantime, as it is an unnecessary duplicate.

No problem. You did respond, I just posted my last question today. Sorry for the confusion, I just remembered the topic sounded familiar and reopened the old topic.

Ah O.K. I misunderstood.
