Library Tabs Appearance

Top  Previous  Next

Select the File menu and click Preferences. Select the Library Tabs Appearance page.


Library Tabs are the tabs used to switch between the various library modules (Bibles, Books, Commentaries).


Library tab font settings controls the font and color used for the "abbreviations" (such as KJV or Easton) that appear on the resource tabs.


Library tab appearance controls the style of the tab.


Shape controls how the borders of the tabs appear. Choose a shape that is most visually appealing to you.


User Modules: Show Pen Icon: when checked, tabs for user-editable modules (such as your personal commentary module) will include a "pen" icon making it easier to identify your personal modules in the Book and Commentary panels.


Alignment controls the horizontal configuration of the tabs. Selecting Single Row makes tabs appear on a single row and adds buttons for scrolling the tabs left and right, and a drop-down button for selecting the tabs from a menu. This option is especially useful if you have installed dozens of third-party SwordSearcher modules and want your tabs to occupy less space on screen.


Tab Color controls the background color of the tabs:

The Active tab is the currently selected library resource in the panel.
Inactive Tabs are the other tabs available, but not currently selected.
Inactive tabs with corresponding entries are tabs for library modules that have an entry with the same title. This color is used to "highlight" tabs with similar information. See the help topics on Books and Commentaries panels for details.


The sample area gives you a preview of how your settings will appear.
