verse display by entering in dialogs
I have used Bibletime under Mandrake 9.1 and now Gentoo. I first downloaded an RPM which seemed to work. Maybe it's me. I'm not much into manuals. In the rpm version of 1.3 when I entered a book, chapter and verse, the first verse of the entered book and chapter would always be displayed. Scrolling down would show the entered verse in red. I have seen this in that RPM and on a slackware machine as well as this installation of gentoo. I had a friend who compiled 1.3 from source on the mandrake installation. In that version I could enter a book chapter and verse and the selected chapter and verse wouldbe displayed first in red. I can't figure out which configuration option it is in bibletime's interface. Is it a compile-time option? How is this functionality accomplished? Thanks.:)

Re: verse display by entering in dialogs
Do you mean jumping to the chosen verse?
This should be the default behaviour,, but it seems it's broken on some KDE 3.x versions.

I'm sorry that we don't have a good bug-fix for this at the moment,

Re: verse display by entering in dialogs
Anyone have jumping to verse working? It doesn't seem to work in 3.2. I am wondering which KDE 3.x versions have jumping to verse working?

The next BibleTime will have a fix for this.
I think KDE 3.1.5 was working, but I'm not sure.

Hello, I'm using SuSE 9.0 + KDE 3.2.1 and this feature doesn't work for me, too. But to my surprise, it does if two translations are used parallel in the same window. Don't ask me why wink

Re: verse display by entering in dialogs
That's because BibleTime creates HTML code for the display windows which is interpreted correctly by KDE < 3.1.something and wrong by >= 3.1.something.

The next BibleTime will have a fix for that.
