Earlier, I wrote about how to set up the Quick Navigation Bar (aka, “the Go box”) to quickly open resources. It can be used to navigate to references as well, and in the Libronix DLS, just about everything is a reference. I’ll look at two in this post: citations of Bible verses, and lexicon headwords.
The Quick Navigate Bar is already set up to open Bible references. Try it: Type
Ecc 12:12 into the Go box and hit
ENTER. Some version of the Bible should open to that verse. Which version of the Bible opens on your system depends on which resource you have set as your preferred translation (Tools | Options | Keylink…).
The Quick Navigate Bar can also be set up to navigate to other kinds of references, too. It simply needs to know what kinds of citations which data types it should expect. I’ve added Hebrew to my Quick Nav bar so I can type Hebrew words into the Go box to open my favorite lexicon: 1) Go to Tools | Options | Power Tools… on the main menu; 2) Choose the Quick Navigate tab; 3) Type
Bible, Hebrew into the Data Types text box; 4) OK.
Now, when you type a Hebrew lemma into the Go box (don’t forget to change the keyboard with
F2, or by using the Keyboard Selector in the system tray at the bottom-right of the screen) your favorite lexicon will be opened to that word. What’s more, if your favorite doesn’t have that word (or doesn’t have that spelling of the word), some other lexicon that does have that word will open.
