View Full Version : Suggestion: distinguish search and browse versions

It just occurred to me that I am constantly switching back and forth from the versions I search in to the versions I browse in.

For example, a large number of the searches I do are in the morphologically-tagged texts, but I never want to browse in those texts.

I would recommend finding a way to change the search version back and forth without changing the browsing version when you do so.

Perhaps like a search limit, one could simply type on the comand line:

b bgt
b esv

to choose a browse version that would not change with the changing of search versions. Once entering in a browser version one could change it whenever they want by typing b and the other version, or shut off the distinction between the browser version and the search version by simply entering b (without anything following it) on the command line. So the default would be to have search and browse versions linked, but a user could choose to separate them.

That's what happens when you provide such a powerful and flexible tool.... We'll keep thinking of ways to push the power and flexibility!

Thanks for all your work,
