Using OneTouch®

OneTouch® is the easiest Bible Study software to use. The program is intuitive enough for you to get started on your study right away. However, you may not be aware of the huge number of features that are available to you. Let us take a brief overview of the interface.

In it's standard configuration, OneTouch® has three main areas: 1) the NavPanel, which helps you find information related to what you are looking at, 2) the Main Toolbar which is how you open Bibles, Commentaries, and other reference works, and 3) the Application Desktop, which either displays information on OneTouch®, a daily selection from a reference work, or the tabs you have open.

When a tab is open, an additional toolbar shows at the bottom of the desktop area. This is called the "Local Toolbar" and has buttons that apply to the currently focused pane and tab.

In general, you will use OneTouch® in the following manner: Open a reference work by clicking on the Main Toolbar button which matches the type of reference work you wish to open. Then you will use the NavPanel to get to related material, such as cross-references, reference chains, and smart-references.

OneTouch® provides several ways to use its various features so that you can choose the method that is most comfortable to you. The most commonly-used features are available through buttons which appear on the Main Toolbar, the local toolbar, and the Smart Tools panel. You can also access all of these features, and more, from the main menu. A right-click on your mouse will bring up the popup menu which includes many common features, including cross-references and smart-references. Finally, there are several short-cut keys defined that allow you to access some common features through simple keystrokes.
