      Description

      I guess the current version of the dictionary search function is not designed to be used for Strong's numbers per say.
      (it used great when i used a "normal" dictionary with continuous search as you type... i really like that function)

      however.. before i tried that i had strong's selected and thought i would search what words there are for faith.
      It got a bit confusing when it started to jump to a certain number (05617) with the first keystroke and staid there as i continued to type FAITH. (the word 05617 was Hosee (i.e. Hosea)

      After i changed to a glossary kind of dictionary (Swe1917Of) it worked really good. (although the last 15 words in that dictinoary had empty explanations)

        If you find problems in any of the modules, feel free to add a bug report to http://www.crosswire.org/bugs/browse/MOD noting it

        The "search" in the dictionary tab only searches through the list of keys, so when you type a letter while you have Strong's open, it will jump to the very last entry (it does a string compare, FYI).

        I have no plans to add search to dictionaries at this point, so I'm going to close this bug and say it works as intended – please comment if you're not happy with that!
