Feature request: Greek click on word -> Strongs link

Hi,

I'm a satisfied user of MacSword and would like to make a suggestion to improve the usability of the product.

At present when viewing the Greek new testament, to view the strongs definition you have to enable "view strong numbers" and then click or hover on the link.

This is fine but renders reading of the text more difficult with all the brackets and numbers.

I think it might be nice to have the possibility of the word being clickable (or "hoverable"). clicking on the word would show strongs definition and morphological analysis.

There is something of the sort on some bible websites.

Anyway thumbs up for the good work.

Hi.

Yeah, I thought about this as well.
But while it's technically doable it's not trivial to implement. But it's on the roadmap.

I'm not a programmer but I was thinking if it is somehow possible to use code from the xulSword project which does just that.

BibleTime does this as well, but uses a special "mag" pane, which I can imagine simplifies things for them. But yes, it is a wonderful feature. Oh, and BibleTime also shows morphology together with definitions.

In NSTextView, the class/technology that we use in MacSword for the text display (same as in TextEdit) you can tag a word or a range of characters with information. This could be done here, that the links are replaced and instead the words are tagged so that when you hover over them the information can be display as tooltip or elsewhere.
