Limiting searches i.e. search ranges
Is it possible to limit the search range to portions of the Bible in ver. 2.x? I've been looking, but I can't find it!

Thanks.

BTW, I'm working on a writeup for our Christian Apple Technologies User's Group's wiki (formerly known as CMUG or Mac-Ministry--yes, we are going through a name change too!), and I guess I don't search much with MacSword, so this is an area I need to brush up on.

If you want to view my work so far, you can see it at http://wiki.catug.org/Mac_Sword.

Critiques and assistance welcome.

Hi.

You can limit the search range.
See this screenshot:

When in indexed search mode, the right sidebar contains range options.

Nice wiki. Lot of useful information.
Yoi probably know of our internal wiki?
https://www.crosswire.org/wiki/Frontends:MacSword

Btw. I didn't officially announced it but the rename it almost done.
A new version has been released and we are now hosted under a new domain:
http://www.eloquent-bible-study.eu

The old domain is still active though.

Oh, yeah!!! That right sidebar--which I never show when in Bible view mode! Duh. Thanks! I knew it had to be there somewhere.

Yes, and I like it, but I have a couple goals in mind with putting this on our wiki. 1. To expose the people on CATUG/CMUG more to the app (rather than Accordance), and also, hopefully, to attract more people to the group. ;-)

One of my plans, actually, is to let you take whatever you want, if you want it, for the official MacSword wiki. I would feel a bit awkward editing the official wiki, but please feel free to use whatever you want. I don't need credit, either. :-)

Maybe not officially, but the macsword web site is announcing it. ;-) In fact, it's caused me some consternation. I purposely left out the "Eloquent" change, because you hadn't announced it, but somebody on Mac-min asked me why I hadn't used the new name on the wiki! I can't win. ;-)

Unfortunately, I need to let further work wait until next week. I have three sermons to prepare for the next four days.

Ahh, yeah. I wrote this on the web page. If that's not official, what is? :)

It is eventually planed to add a wiki (also for more development information) and a dedicated forum to the WordPress page.

So, should I change the CATUG wiki to say Eloquent? Or should I hold off?

Re: Limiting searches i.e. search ranges
Well, that's the name now.

Thank you again for all your documentation work.
It is definitely very helpful.
