Post Add function popup in bookviews
Hi,
I don't know if it could be done but I would like to see function added that allows popup when mouse hovers over word in books, etc.

Like it can be done in bible view but also have that function in books too.
Some books I have foreign languages and it would be nice to assign a lookup dictionary to specific books.

I notice I can right click on a word and if a dictionary has that particular word in its entry, it can be looked up.
It would be quicker if I could assign a chosen dictionary(s) for definition on a given word.

Thanks.

Thanks for your request.
We considered such a feature some years back, but decided that lookup was good enough.

I agree lookup is good enough.

But I think it would be even better if somehow I was able to choose which modules theWord would search. In the Bible view this feature is awesome mainly because I choose the valuable modules to be searched.

As it is, the 'lookup nnn in' feature in book view searches the entire library. Cant I be allowed to choose what is to be searched?

Regards

I am not objecting to the suggestion.
We can use the features that are there already.
However as a workaround you can open a second Book search, window that you could set to search subject only and specific modules of a set only.
Now you will have all the results displayed, which you can hover with the mouse and (CTRL key depressed will show content)
