    • The Information window can be used with virtually any book in your library.
    • You can direct which information will show up in the Information window (see Setting up your Information window).
    • And you can control when the information appears (by Hovering or by Clicking). See Hover/Click option.

  • Information which can appear includes:



How do I open the Information window?

From the Tool menu

  1. On the top menu click on Tools
  2. In the drop down menu click on Information

The Right-Click Context Menu

  1. In your resource right click on a word or footnote.
  2. A pop-up (Context) menu will appear. Click Show Information at the bottom.

 

How to get information in the Information window

  • You will need an open resource.
  • In the resource, click/hover over a word or data type reference link:
    • an entry from a dictionary, lexicon or encyclopedia may come up in Information, as well as the text of references.
    • nearby footnotes may also appear.
  • Moving to another word in the text will bring up information on the new word.
  • If Hover (see Hover/Click option) is selected you can move the cursor without changing the content by holding the Ctrl key down.
  • Click a link in the Information panel to open a resource or tool to the referenced location.




Setting up your Information window

  • The Information window allows you to control what information is visible in its window.
    • This can be useful when your system may be slow. You can disable many of the items that you don’t normally use.
    • This can be helpful when too much info is showing in the window, you can turn off what you don’t need.

Hover/Click option

  • Click on the Information panel icon and a drop-down menu will appear.
  • Select an option for Update on:
    • Hover means that Information is updated when your mouse hovers over a word.
    • Click means that Information is updated only when a word is clicked and it could be more efficient than Hover if you are running on a slower computer.
