Thanks. I'm surprised I'm one of few who use the detached window. It
might be worth me saying why.
Example: I'm looking at the beginning of John's gospel. It obviously
has some similarity to Genesis 1. I want to look at Gen. 1:1 and John
1:1 at the same time. Then I want to look at various bible versions for
each. Xiphos lets me do that with the detached window for one version.
Next: I'm looking at a particular passage. I want the complete chapter
on screen in more than one version. Again, this works fine with Xiphos
using detached windows.
Third: I use the Revised Common Lectionary most weeks at church. I can
have all four readings for the day on screen at the same time. This
really is a big help when thinking about them prior to the worship ....
And so on .... I really appreciate the flexibility to do all of those
things. I wonder why others don't have similar requirements.
After all that, thanks for Xiphos. It's just great!
