Examples using Follow

  • When you have the Power Lookup tool open and set its linking to Follow, the tool will update whenever you click in a different resource.
  • Below are a few examples. Try opening a variety of resources and see how the Power Lookup tool works with them.

In NKJV

  1. In this example we have the New King James Version of the Bible open.
  2. We have the Power Lookup tool open with its linking set to Follow.
  3. Notice the footnote e, when you hold your mouse over it the pop-up reference appears. Also note that in the Power Lookup tool the reference e is present.
  4. Notice in the Power Lookup tool the reference e is present and the references that it referred to are shown under the reference.
  5. On the page showing in the NKJV there are 3 other references (f, g, h) visible. These are also shown in the Power Lookup tool. But the last two references are not visible in the tool. You can scroll down in the tool to see these references.



  • As you scroll or page down in the NKJV, the Power Lookup will update to show the references which are visible on the page you are viewing in the NKJV.


In Bible Knowledge Commentary

  • When you have Power Lookup open and set the linking to Follow, you can click in your commentary (the BKC is shown in this example) and the Power Lookup tool will show references that are visible on the screen of your commentary in the Power Lookup tool.



  • Clicking on a link in the Power Lookup will take you to that location in the appropriate resource.
