14 The Analysis Window - Overview

 

  

The Analysis Window occupies the right third of the BibleWorks Main Window. Its primary function is to display an analysis of the Biblical text in the Browse Window. It also provides the user interface for the BibleWorks Editor and the BibleWorks User Notes facility. The various functions of the Analysis Window are accessed by a set of tabs across the top of the window. The functions of these tabs are described below.

Using Analysis Tabs

 

Each of the tabs represents a separate tool to help you analyze the text in the Browse Window. To activate a tab all you have to do is click on the tab. There are many times when you want to use two tools at once and have them both visible. You can do this by splitting the Analysis Window into two columns. Each column will have a portion of the total tabs available. To split the Analysis Window click on the long red arrow on the right side of the tabs. The BibleWorks Window will then look something like this:

 

Configuring a 4th Column

 

Note that there are now two Analysis Windows. You have the option of displaying the Analysis Tabs in either one or two columns. You can switch back and forth between one column mode and two column mode by clicking on the red arrow on the upper right of the first Analysis Window column. You can rearrange buttons in an Analysis Window simply by clicking and dragging with the left mouse button. You can also move tabs from one column to the other by the same procedure.

 

If you right click on the red tab you will see a context menu with two configuration options. One turns the tab wrapping on and off. The other affects how the Analysis Window is split into two windows. If "Maintain main window size" is checked, the total BibleWorks Window width will be preserved. If it is not checked, expanding the Analysis Window will result in a second Analysis Column that is the same width as the first, thus making the BibleWorks Window wider.


The Word Analysis Tab

 

The Word Analysis Tab displays lexical and other verse-specific information automatically as you move the mouse cursor over text in the Browse Window. The information displayed in the Word Analysis Window depends on the nature of the text under the mouse cursor, whether it is Greek, Hebrew, or other-language Bible text tagged for Strong's numbers. For details see the section on the Analysis Window.

 


The Resource Summary Tab

 

The Resource Summary Tab contains an instance of the Resource Summary Window.  This is a Window that displays a summary of available information related to Greek and Hebrew words under the mouse cursor in the Browse Window. It includes a list of abbreviated Lexicon entries as well as a list of locations where the current verses is cited. For details see the section on the Resource Summary Window.
