StudyClick Options

Top  Previous  Next

Select the File menu and click Preferences. Select the StudyClick Options page.

 

These options are for configuring how StudyClick works.

 

There are a lot of options to choose from here. Generally, the default options described in the StudyClick section should suit most study flows well and it won't be necessary to change these. Power users will enjoy being able to configure these options.

 

Under Bible and Verse List Panels you may configure what happens when you use StudyClick in Bible and Verse List panels. Under Book and Commentary Panels you may configure what happens when you use StudyClick in Book and Commentary panels.

 

For example, you can configure Bible panels to open the Webster 1828 dictionary when you Ctrl+Click a word in the Bible, and the Book and Commentary panels to open the Topic Guide when you Ctrl+Click a word.

 

When I hold CTRL and click a word... Choose what happens when you Ctrl+Click a word. This is your primary action.

 

When I hold CTRL+ALT and click a word... Choose what happens when you additionally hold down ALT and click a word.  This is your secondary action.

 

StudyClick actions you may use are:

 

Open the Topic Guide
Opens the Topic Guide and pre-fills the click word into the text box for lookup.
 
Search the Bible (immediate):
Search the Bible for the word without opening the search dialog. Also shows a preview popup as you move the mouse pointer over the words showing the first and last occurrence of the word in the Bible.
 
Search the Bible (with options):
Same as above, but opens the search dialog so you can modify the search first.
 
Open the closest matching entry in Webster's 1828 Dictionary:
Also shows a preview popup with the definition as you move the mouse pointer over words.
 
Open closest matching entry in current book:
Works best when a dictionary is your active book. Also shows a pre-view popup with the definition as you move the mouse pointer over words.
 
Open closest matching entry in the book I select for lookup: (see below) Choose your favorite dictionary. Also shows a preview popup with the definition as you move the mouse pointer over words.
 
Full Library Search (immediate):
Search your entire library for the word without opening the search dialog.
 
Full Library Search (with options):
Same as above, but opens the search dialog so you can modify the search first.

 

Use this book module for lookup: for StudyClick actions that involve a lookup, you can specify which book module to use, such as your favorite dictionary.

 

For Bible searches started with StudyClick, you can choose to always use a specific Bible module (regardless of which Bible module is active) by checking When I use StudyClick to start a Bible search, always use this Bible module... and choose which one you want to be used.

 

A special StudyClick action for Bible verse links can be selected under When I hold CTRL and click a verse link:

 

Open the verse in a Clone Bible Panel:
See Clone Panels. This allows you to open a "new Bible panel" to avoid losing your place in the main Bible panel, and still read the full chapter context of a verse.
 
Set the verse in the Verse Guide Panel:
See Verse Guide Panel.
 
Open the verse in the Topic Guide:
See Topic and Verse Guide.
 
Perform "Go To Verse" actions:
This is like typing the verse reference into the Go To Verse and Search box on the main toolbar. See Sync Options.
 
Open the Find Related Verses Tool.
 
Open the Passage Analysis Tool.

 

This option also works in the non-linked Bible panel verse tags as you hold down the CTRL key and move the mouse pointer over the verse tag.
