Lookup in index question
When selecting text in the Bible (or commentary), right-clicking on it, then choosing, "Look up in index." It switches to the alternate Lookup/Search in the same tab.

However, if I "Lookup in index of" [any Bible], including the one currently in use, the alternate Lookup/Search opens in a new tab -- just like "Lookup in default dictionary" and
"Lookup in Dictionary [select dictionary]."

Is this the way it is supposed to work, or should "Look up in index" also open in a new tab like all the other right-click lookups?

Re: Lookup in index question

IMO this is correct behavior. Because this operates in the same module. It is not necessary to open another tab for this.
Whereas if looking up in an index of another module it is necessary in order to not change the module of the tab where the initial request came from.

Thanks, Manfred. I understand the logic behind that.
