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 
free-floating windows.

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.

God bless,
