Feature Requests for Xiphos

Hi! I am using Xiphos on Ubuntu Intrepid, and being a student at a Seminary, I am using it for academic reasons, mainly focusing on using it for my Greek and Hebrew studies. For this reason, I have feature requests which will make it easier to use for such purposes:

1. In addition to the tabbed view of Bibles, would it be possible to be able to have them windowed? That way, it would be easier to view a chapter in its own context. (Like BibleTime does) I am aware of Xiphos's parallel view, but I want to be able to view the NetBible and the Greek in each one's own context. This is a feature of Libronix that makes translation so much easier...

2. I have come across the InvStrongs Hebrew and Greek lexicons (thanks to Charcoal on the #xiphos IRC) and I was wondering if it is possible to incorporate them with the normal Strong's lexicons: What I mean is that if i hover over a Strong's number, I want to be able to see the original Hebrew word, not just the transliteration in Latin letters. Is this possible?

Thanks for your patience with my demanding feature requests!

Love and peace,
Etienne Snyman

Re: Feature Requests for Xiphos

Etienne,

As you've di.scovered, you'll typically get a faster response on the users' mailing list. To summarize for anyone who stumbles across it here.

1. In the module tree, right-click, choose "Open in a New Window".

2. Get StrongsRealGreek and StrongsRealHebrew from the Xiphos repository (in module manager). I believe the official CrossWire dictionaries also have the original language words, but the dictionaries from Xiphos have the additional feature of "linking". Any reference in one entry to another is a clickable link allowing fast navigation.

Re: Feature Requests for Xiphos

These are under "dictionaries". You will have to make sure that you've selected the "Xiphos" repository first.
