Not always the case. I re-started Xiphos three times yesterday and each
time the problem was there. Later, it re-started OK .... It's a
difficult one to repeat - seems spasmodic. I'll let you know if I find
out anything more about it.
Now I'm getting into using Xiphos (in preference to BibleCS), I have a
wish list. A preferred mode of use for me is with the free-floating
bible and commentary windows. It would be great if I could exit the
program and on re-start, return to however I left the layout (this might
be two different bibles plus a commentary). Also, it would be nice to
be able to toggle chapter/verse linking between two or more
Sometimes it is useful to have two different translations looking at the
same chapter/verse and sometimes I want to have one bible version open
on different books. All these things I can do, but have to track the
windows manually when looking at a bible and a commentary in separate
windows. I'm quite happy to go on doing this if I'm the only person
that wants to use Xiphos in this way.
