Jump to Verse

Post by hryoung »

I would sometimes just put a book and chapter in the verse field to jump directly to that chapter upon hitting enter. From there, (my curser was not in any field just the general view window) I could type a number and the view would jump to that verse.

I must have changed the setting somewhere because now this ability is no longer functioning for me. I didn't realize how often I used this option. I would be appreciative if there is a known fix to this.

Thank you in advance.

There are many shortcut keys for different views or global ones. Best to skim the Help through at least once.

Have you tried checking the settings or preferences? Maybe there's an option to toggle it back on. I'm shock that there are some verses that we can keep jumping towards haha
