Select this menu item to create a new commentary article.
The Commentary Pane displays the commentary text for a selected Bible reference. The commentary text is displayed via three "tabs", dividing the commentary information into verse-specific text, chapter-specific text, and book-specific text. In this way, all relevant information for the current reference is readily available--at the verse, chapter, and book levels. The tabs enable you to move readily between these three levels of information for the current reference without losing your place in any of them. Click any tab to bring that tab's information to the front of the Commentary pane.
Commentary text will often contain references to Bible verses and Strong's numbers. Double-click any of these references to view the related information. (Note: Where the information will be displayed depends on your personal preferences and system settings. See Options | Preferences Advanced for detailed information.)
Use the next/previous Commentary buttons (located on the lower toolbar) to view additional commentary for the current Bible reference, from other Commentaries. When no other commentary is available these buttons will be grayed out (inactive) and their pop-up hints will state, "There are no other Commentary reference works for this Bible reference."
