Thanks for yor reply Pastor.Baldwin (or should I say Mark? :D )
I'm not a programmer but i'm interested in the code because i finded very usefull and i thought i could learn about this tcl/tk language. I'm very happy with the word software and your application. That's the whole issue. Also, as you probably noticed my native language is not english (sorry for bad writing or mispelling), i'm chilean so my language is spanish but in the spanish forum there's too little activity...

Since your offering maybe you can help me with this task, I have several books in english (most of the material is in that language) and there are words that i don't understand (some new, some archaic) so i have dictionaries of english (webster, english-spanish, king james, etc) do you know if there is a way that when i mark (enlight) a word this can be searched in the dict. and show results in a bubble window? (just like any bubble featured in theWord).

Maybe Costas could help us with this because i think many of us (non english speakers) would like to read some no native language books...

I hope i made my self clear enough.

Best regards.
In Christ,

Manuel.

Hello Manuel,
you can use the search function for this. Create a custom set of dictionaries from the Book search view. Then, right-click on the word and select the 'Find...' menu. It will be searched in the set you asked and the results will be displayed at the Book search view.

Thanks Costas, I'm actually using this form of search but what i'm proposing is that this behavior could be ported to a bubble pop up, like a firefox add-on type.

Maybe this could be done using tcl/tk rutine type.


Thanks a lot for your reply.
Regards.


Manuel.

Costas,

Could the word lookup function that the Bible View has be added to Book views? Mouse over a word, it looks up in the dictionaries you have defined, displays definitions in a popup. It would be a handy feature and sounds like what Manuel is asking for.

Costas, i'll try to explain my self.

The idea is when I blacken a word with the contextual menu i select Find... and then the results appear in a floating window (A bubble like with commentaries in the Bible view), in Firefox exists several add-ons that translate on the fly. I know this is ambitious but it would be very helpfull for non english speakers like me.

either way, I'm very thankfull for your quick help and good will. :D

In Christ.
Manuel.

OK, i see now...
Will add this in my list to consider!
Thank you,
Costas

P.S. Let me say though that the 'Lookup' menu already searches the dictionaries for the word you right-click on without having to do a 'Find...'

Thanks Costas, but I just tried what you said in your PS and even though I right clicked a word this doesn't trigger the look, instead I had to use the Find...
¿could this be for my sotware version 3.1.3.1054?

Regards.

If you right-click on a word in the book view, you have a menu 'Lookup'. There is a sub-menu with all dcts that have a match on the topic for this word,

Hi dear Costas.
Do you have any update regarding this subject? I'm still waiting for this capability.

God bless!
Manuel.
