What is the Explorer tool?

  • The Explorer tool acts like a mini-Passage Guide which will Follow the active resource or you can have it follow a linked resource. As mentioned, it is not a full Passage Guide. Unlike the Passage Guide, it can dynamically show you useful information without having to type a passage and search.



Opening the Explorer tool

The Tools Menu

  1. Click on Tools in the top menu.
  2. Click on Explorer in the drop down menu.

The Right-Click Context Menu

  1. When you select a word or series of words in a resource and click the right mouse button, a pop-up Context menu appears.
  2. Now if you select Reference on the right side you should see Explorer on the left side of the menu. When you click it the reference will appear in Explorer.
