Post Feature request: clear display of current book and chapter
theWord is a great piece of software, and I really approach Costas' hard work in creating it. Here's a suggestion for improving it: make the chapter and verse clearly visible at all times in a Bible view.

When I'm reading in the Bible View, the current book and chapter are clearly visible at the beginning of the chapter, as shown in item (3) in this image:

However, when I scroll down, the only way to find the current book and chapter is by reading the text in the title bar of the book view window, below (1), or in theWord's title located above (1) if the current book is the active window. Item (2) in the image illustrates this difficulty -- the only way to get context for what I'm reading there is to look above (2) in the rather small (for my older eyes) title bar of the window.

I would therefore suggest making the text of the book and chapter always visible -- here's a mockup in which the chapter and verse and clearly visible below (2).

I just made this module for you to try. You will be able to view it in a few different ways as illustrated in the screen shot.
Set it as a commentary link
Set it in a small view
Set it as an inline commentary

Jon,

Thanks so much! That's perfect. By hiding window captions/titles and adding 50 pixels of left margin space, it works really well for me. Thanks again!

Bryan

You are welcome
As an added bonus, if you detect all the verse refs in this module you will have a popup of the Bible verse to hand. I am sure you know you can get multiple translations in the popup or your default/current one, so it is quite handy.
