Floating and Docking the Windows
Bible Analyzer 4 introduces a new interface with an advanced window manager. The manager
allows the floating and docking of windows in many different combinations and positions. Double-clicking or dragging the caption of Dictionary, Commentary, or Results window will float the
window allowing it to be repositioned and resized.
Floating windows can be docked by dragging the caption to the desired position shown by the
docking indicators. Placing the cursor over a section of the docking indicator will display a faded
hint window in the location where the window would be docked if the mouse button is released.
The main Toolbars can also be repositioned by dragging and also hidden or shown from the View
The image above shows the Dictionary Window still floating but the caption area being
dragged to one of the docking indicators. The shaded blue area shows where the window
would be docked if the mouse was released.
All window and toolbar positions are saved on exit and restored on next start. User layouts can
also be saved.
There is a compact button control on the main toolbar that contains six buttons. These allow quick
and convenient manouvering between windows.
