[sword-devel] Issues I have encountered

These are definitely some interesting bugs. I noticed that some strange
things were actually engineered into the front-end. Chapter 0 and Verse 0,
were at my first glance errors, but after playing a bit with it I noticed
that verse 0 of a chapter shows the chapter preface notes for the
commentaries, and Chapter 0 of a book shows the preface notes for the book.
MHC is on such commentary that works in this way. I wonder if when some of
these other bugs are addressed we could also look at the Chapter 0, Verse 0
"features" and implement them in a more intuitive way. I would have never
guessed that this is how I would find the preface notes.
In Christ,
David Trotz

> Some more bugs relating to the handling of the spin buttons, verse
references, chapter and book headings, etc:
> 1. If the verse is equal to 0, the chapter number doesn't stop at the end
of the book, but instead at 200. (This gets really

start seeing other chapter headings interspersed with access

> 2. Synchronisation between spin controls & what the commentary & bible
texts are showing works with 0's if you set them in the spin

shows verse or chapter 1. Also if you type in a verse with
> a zero you get redirected to the last verse of the previous chapter. And
if you put a chapter of zero you also get the previous
> chapter. If you put both verse and chapter 0, you get the end of the
chapter before the previous chapter.(And if you put in Mat 1:0,
> the text goes to Malachi 4:6 but the commentary jumps to Rev 4:1) Another
strange example: type in Mat 0:0 - it changes to Malachi
> 3:18. Now press the button for next chapter, it changes to Matthew 1:12.
Press prev chapter: Matthew 0:12. Press prev chapter:
> Matthew 1:6
