StudyClick

Top  Previous  Next

Any word in a Bible, Verse List, Book, or Commentary panel can be instantly turned into a clickable link. All you need to do is hold the CTRL key as you move the mouse pointer over the words. Once you start using StudyClick you will find that it saves a lot of time, reducing the amount of typing or clicking you need to do to accomplish searches or lookups.

 

The following examples show how StudyClick works with the default settings. You can change what the links do in StudyClick Options.

 

CTRL+Click

 

StudyClick sample: Holding CTRL while moving the mouse pointer.

The sample image above shows what happens when you hold CTRL and point at a word.  The word "inspiration" has become clickable, and a pop-up shows the first and last use of the word in the Bible.  Clicking the word (while still holding CTRL) would show all of the verses in a new Verse List.

 

CTRL+ALT+Click

In this image (above), CTRL+ALT is being held down instead.  Clicking the word (while still holding CTRL+ALT) would open the Topic Guide for the word.

 

A Different StudyClick option

 

StudyClick sample: using Webster's 1828 Dictionary for word lookup.

StudyClick sample: using Webster's 1828 Dictionary for word lookup.

 

This shows one of the many additional options you can choose from for StudyClick: lookup in Webster's 1828 dictionary. The preview shows an excerpt of the definition, and clicking the word would open the full definition in the Book panel.

 

Tips

 

To use StudyClick on more that one word at a time, you can mark the words first with your mouse, and then use StudyClick on the selected text.

 

Words that are already linked will not change into StudyClick links.

 

StudyClick with Verse Links

 

Verse links have special meaning in SwordSearcher and work differently with StudyClick. By default, when you hold down CTRL and click a verse link, a Clone Bible Panel will open for the chapter in which the verse appears, so you can examine the full chapter context of the verse without changing your place in the main Bible panel. Different options are also available on the StudyClick Options page under When I hold CTRL and click a verse link... Also, you can CTRL-click the non-linked verse tags in the Bible panel for the same effect.
