    Default How to hover (analysis window update) in Windows 8 (Tablet, BW8--EDIT:BW10) ?

    Is there a work around on Tablets (Windows 8) to update the Analysis window in BW8 by "hovering" over words?

    With a mouse & keyboard having the mouse pointer hovering over a word in Hebrew or Greek Bibles results in an auto-update of the Analysis window (in my case I was looking up goyim in WTT and have HALOT as my active Analysis lexicon). Holding shift will lock the Analysis window.

    But with a Tablet using a stylus or finger there is no "hover." You tap to select, double tap to double click, or press-and-hold for right click. But I have not found a proper work around for "hover" or "hover & shift."

    There is, of course, a workable alternative: Right Click (hold) to bring up a context sensitive menu and then select, "Look Up Lemma in Lexical Browser."

    I am finding BW very usable in Win8 on a high DPI tablet (1920x1200 on a 10 inch screen) but I am excited to hear future versions will allow users to customize icons (and hopefully scroll bars!) size.

    Ps. Totally off topic, but it hit me today that there are two tweaks (maybe already in 9?) I would like to see with the Browse Window. One would be related to the above--when you hover in the content window it could update in the Browse Window's analysis pane. The other would be for the browse window to put the selected verse in the middle, not the top, of the window.
