I don't know whether this is possible yet or not with a keyboard shortcut, but what I would like to have is a quick way to step forward or back one verse at a time. For example, a couple of new buttons could be added to accomplish this, as in the hypothetical screenshot below:

This would save time typing on the command line or using the dropdown boxes.

Thanks for help and consideration of this.

David Kummerow.

Maybe I'm missing something, but you can already do this if I understand you properly. The scroll bar immediately to the right of the browse window has up/down arrow keys for this very purpose.

But clicking there just produces a dropdown list. What I would like is two designated buttons that step forward or back one verse at a time upon immediate pressing.

Thanks,

Forget the suggestion: I found what you were referring to Scott!

The buttons were there all along:

Seems like it doesn't matter how long you use this program, there are always some of the simplest things to discover.

At the moment I'm doing work requiring the use of BW for about 8-10 hrs a day, and dedicated buttons doing this will help me considerably.

Thanks for your help!

David.

I have been using this program for years, and I still find things I never knew about before. So join the club.

Now that's a scary thought... :rolleyes:

There is a keyboard toggle that I like much better than trying to hit those little up/down arrows with my mouse.

With the cursor somewhere in the browse window, hit CTRL-SHFT-DownArrow
Now when you use the down/up arrows, the text moves by verse.
Repeat the CTRL-SHFT-DownArrow, and it will revert back so that the cursor moves down/up in the cursor window.

By the way, David, in case you don't already know this, you can type only the verse # on the CL if you want to simply go back and forth in the same chapter, i.e., if you're in, say, Genesis 1, you can simply type 17 on the CL to go to verse 17, and so forth.

Also, if you want to remain in Genesis but switch to another chapter, you don't have to type the book name, so if you wanted to go to, say, Genesis 37:1, you could type on the CL simply 37:1, or 37 1...

I suspect you already know this, but just in case...

My, my. That's one I didn't know about either.

Thanks for that one, too! I've got a couple of options it seems.

Interestingly, if I hit CTRL-SHFT-DownArrow/UpArrow I toggle "Scroll Mode". To go to the next or previous verse I have to hit CTRL-DownArrow/UpArrow.

Thanks also Scott for pointing out what you did -- as you assumed, I already know about that and use it all the time. Little things like this make the program extremely flexible and usable for different users. But for those that didn't know this, the hopefully they're reading here...

Thanks,
David.

Who on earth is that?! Certainly not "MGVH", I would assume?

I'm hoping that is a complement. If so, you're welcome. If not...

PS: I did vote for Pedro!

PS: I did vote for Pedro!Thank you!!! You've restored my belief that some folks on this site take study breaks once in a great while.

It was a TOTAL complement!

(I voted for Pedro too. Summer Weedly is a poop.)

Hmmm. Seems I'm entirely ignorant here. I've never seen it. Study breaks currently for me really just involve playing with my young son or playing a board game with my wife.

But maybe we should rent this Napoleon Dynamite some time from the video store...

David.
