Hi. I am still using BP much, as i find it is the best of its kind for searching and copying which i do much of, by God's grace, but i would like to reduce the size of the search window more than it is allowed, in order to have the Bible view window side by side the search view, without having to shrink the Bible view even more than it is. I can only reduce the search view now to a little over half the size of my 19'' monitor.
Another improvement would be to enable the same "copy verses" function which the Bible view window offers, for copying a selected text in the search window, rather than just "copy selection with links" or without links.
As it is now, to get the full copy function you have to left click twice on a search result, which results in losing the search window. Perhaps at least the latter could stay up after a result is selected, if the window could be made smaller so side by side was better enabled.
Even more of an enhancement would be a combination "Go to verse" bar and Search bar, which would recognize search words in distinction from a bible reference, and show the results in a search window, like the address bar in some browsers doubles as a search bar.
Also, my custom copy string [header: " Body: $text " Footer: ($range)] places a space between the closing quotation mark and the text, as in
"¶And Nathan said to David, Thou art the man. Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, I anointed thee king over Israel, and I delivered thee out of the hand of Saul; "(2 Samuel 12:7)
Is there any way to eliminate the space? And the ¶ while still showing them in the Bible view?
Another question is also particular to me. In the interest of speed with stiff fingers, i use AutoHotKey and scripted the CapsLock to key to function as Ctrl+C (CapsLock::^c ), so that it copies whatever is selected [I also have the ESc key as Paste (Esc::^v) and NumLock as Esc (NumLock::Esc)]. This works in most every other program, but for some reason when i try to copy using this in BPB, it brings up the comment box. Can i change this?
Finally, I look forward to seeing ver. 0.5, and pray it will enable copying as formatted, so that the supplied words in italics are retained.
Thank God for you heart to provide this precious tool, and thanks for your working to improve it. From the activity on this forum, BPB does not seem to well known, but God can change that.
