I have a couple of Bibles which I developed myself. They refused to pop up using beta 1396 even though they were selected in the preferences tab. I checked them against Bibles that do appear in the pop-up and discovered that the only difference was that I did not have an "id=" statement in the Bible module. As soon as I include an "id=" statement, that Bible will also pop up.

Willem,
I still cannot repeat that no matter how hard I try. If you can repeat it consistently, then i need your help. Please, find a pattern or a module and tell me the exact steps so I can reproduce.

Just discovered the alternate versions show in Bible Search view! Two things about that: the only version that is identified in the left margin is the first one; the alternates aren't identified. It would be helpful if they were. Second, could there be a setting in the Bible Search view to turn alternates on/off? Most of the time I would prefer to see search results for the specific version only that I've selected.

There is just the setting in the Advanced tab that allows you to only show the alternatives when the Shift key is depressed.

[Edit] I think I missed the point here. Perhaps a screen shot would clear this.

Not sure about what you mean by that.

On the left is the reference (Matt. 9:36) plus the translation id (KJV+TVM) for the first one. Below it are the alternate versions - ERV, LEB, and NET. But, they aren't identified in any way.

Another "feature" I found - if you have selected "Only display alternate translations when SHIFT key is pressed" and you resize the search results window without pressing SHIFT, the alternate translations disappear from the results. To get them back you have to press the SHIFT key and re-run the search. I didn't expect the search results to change simply because the window was resized.

Honestly, this is a side-effect, or a 'bug'. I never intended the alternate version to appear there (although they do). Does everyone think that they are useful there? I think I should remove them, they don't make any sense since you can turn-off the text and mouse-over to get the alternates.

Seems confusing to have alternate translations shown there. There is already a feature to search "sets" and then the feature to right click and compare them in the Bible compare view.
