    I will confess I don't think I had ever used the popup command line, but just because David mentioned it, I thought, Hmm, might as well try it out to see what it's like...

And even if it doesn't, I read the Help files and pretend I knew about it all along (shhh!)
    Ah, Michael, how familiar this sounds to me. It applies to so much of my spiritual and moral life! There, to be sure, I know much more of what's possible than I use; but I do continue to read the Help files.

    I had the same problem with my HP laptop a while back. Someone (maybe Adelphos?) pointed out to me that for my setup, you need to hold down the "fn" key (down near the left control and alt keys) when hitting F1, and it will bring up BW help instead of Windows help.

    Right you are, Lee. (I tried it.) Thanks. I am on an HP Laptop, by the way! I guess it must be an HP thing. Again, thanks.

    Glad to pass on the help that I received myself. And it does seem to be an HP thing with any function key in any program.

Not sure just yet what I might use it for, but I bet I'll think of something. Thanks, Michael!

    Long ago I learned something to the effect that in rabbinic logic there is an expression איו לדבר סוף, "There is no end to the matter," referring to a logical infinite regress. But I would like to apply that expression, in a positive way, to BibleWorks, its capabilities, and its interface!
    I have found the popup command line very useful when I want to navigate while using the Parallel Versions window. Click in the pane you want to be the master version, then enter the reference you want in the popup. Note: you have to enter the full reference -- the popup edition of the command line will not remember book or chapter.

    (I just tried F1 in the Browse Window Header, and found this gem):
    Open Popup CL - Opens up a floating command line which allows the user to change verse references or do a search. This is intended primarily for use with the Parallel Versions Window, which can sometimes hide the Main Window command line.

    By the way, a right click in the header area of the Parallel window gives you the same context menu as the main browse window header, so you can invoke the popup command line right there.

    Say, that is nifty! I often use a big honkin' Parallel Versions Window to compare translations, and it completely hides the main BW window. I'm sure I'll find that popup CL handy there! Of course, if I use it to search, I have to go back to the main window for the results list, but still it looks useful.
