biggrin   active verse focus
My request is for the selected verse to become visible as well as highlighted. Right now what happens in BT 1.4.1, is that I change the verse in the menu bar of a bible and the first verse in the chapter comes up. I then have to scroll down to the verse I have tried to move to.
I would also love to have my ability to highlight and copy scripture from the search window returned. This used to be possible, but was lost in 1.4. I would also not mind if the whole context was NOT displayed in the search window when a found verse was clicked. Because it has the same problem as the normal Bible window, you have to scroll until you find the highlighted verse. I would like to have only the found verse visible as an option. (forgive my ignorance if it already is, and I just have overlooked it.)
Howard.

Re: active verse focus
Hi,
yes, this is a bug. KDE 3.2 (I think) didn't handle the anchors the same way as 3.1 did, so 1.4.1 is broken.

In the next version we'll have a nicer rendering and jumping to the verse again. The searchdialog will also jump again to the verse.

Do you want to select text in the preview display of the searchdialog and copy that by CTL+C? Or something else?

Yes, or at least be able to right click and select copy. Right now I have to highlight it, go to OOo and click the middle mouse button to copy it over.
