Dictionary jumps to word clicked on

Postby srice » Sat Sep 12, 2015 3:44 pm

I may have mentioned this before, and perhaps there is a way to turn this off that I'm not aware of. I'm always clicking on a window to highlight a verse, or select a window so I can control that window for scrolling or something of that nature. Every time I click, the dictionary jumps to that word. It drives me buggy. I kind of wish that there was a way to do either or:

1. Shut it off via preferences (Perhaps this is an option and I cannot find it?)

2. Qualify the dictionary search with a separate button push. For example, if I push Alt and click a word, it would look it up in the dictionary, but other wise would ignore the click.

Am I missing something? Overlooking something? Perhaps I'm just a click-a-holic that needs to learn not to click so much.

In the Dictionary Toolbar there is a Sync Button that is on by default. Just toggle it off and word clicks will not activate the Dictionary Panel or make the word the Current Word.

The same can be done for the Commentaries.

Posting this for even myself!

If you click on the Dictionary window, and then select the 'Link' icon, you can shut-off the dictionary from jumping to a word that is clicked! I thought it was in there somewhere. I often overlook things like this. I hope this helps someone else.
