Well. I'm wrong -- you can set it when you choose the text
font. That's not very obvious, though...

I noticed that the search results list doesn't use the color scheme,
only the verse display at the bottom of the window does.

(I forgot whether I asked this before) Why is the cursor position set
when I only move my mouse around? I am using sword right know to
prepare some papers and it is very annoying to have the current module
set to the commentary all the time because I moved my mouse over it --
especially when doing searches!

Also, it is something that is not customary to the Windows GUI... it
is equivalent to suddenly introducing focus-change-on-mouse-over for a
window (equivalent in confusion, I mean).

Also, I finally understood why the verse selection mechanism feels
wrong for me. I have to press the upper arrow button to increase the
number. That means, if I scroll the verse list *up*,  it will cause
the text display to scroll *down*. This is also illogical because
right and bottom represent the "future" in current GUIs, whereas left
and top represent the "past". So by pressing the lower button I would
expect to move forward.

Unfortunately, I am not sure what to do about it. Win ME's Date/Time
Settings use these arrows the same way, although it also feels
wrong. How do others feel about it?
