A clarification, on the example that I had tried, Only the reference of
"Matthew 4:1" showed up in the main part of that window, the text of
that verse did not. Also does anyone have an idea why I am seeing so
much text (2 chapters) in the bottom pane of that window for both verse
lists and searches?

By the grace of God,

I think the entry in the help file you are referring to is, "If a range
given the first chapter or verse in the range is listed." As you said, 
"Matthew 4:1 displayed in the main part of the window." That was the
of the entry in the help file. But, I will change that entry to "If a
is given the reference for the first chapter or verse in the range is 
listed." I don't personally know if the long display of the preview
is a bug or a feature. There have been other questions posted on that
and I 
don't think anyone has answered. If it is a feature, it would be better
the target verse was a different color or highlighted. Same thing for
search preview. I like these long previews, but I would like to see
the target verse starts and ends.
