When searching for information via the Strong's number Hxxx or Gxxxx I typically use the BTSCTVM+ dictionary. If there is a lot of info the dictionary text seems to get cut off. Have also seen the same symptom in other dictionaries. It looks like the Dictionary window probably has a character or word limit to what it will display.

Is there a way to increase this limit or to be able to see the remainder of the information provided - while still using the Strong's numbering hyperlink in the bible window?

You can try to higher the screen-resolution or smaller the Tooltip Font size (Options Font Settings) if you have good eyes.  See the Tooltip window rather as a preview.

 

It depends what Strong number that you are looking for example:

G5207 son, G1080 begat, are very big especially if you use combined dictionaries.

I don't recommend BTSCTVM+ because it is incomplete in the concordance.

Thank you for the response. Perhaps my question was worded poorly. It is not the tooltips window I am questioning. I agree it is best suited for a preview. It is in the Dictionary window when I have selected BTSCTVM+ dictionary. For example if I select the word "saw [H7200] and I scroll down through the dictionary window the last portion I see is...

 

 • respecteth, 1
 Job_37:24 
 
 • saw, 303
 Gen_1:4; Gen_1:10; Gen_1:12; Gen_1:18; Gen_1:21; Gen_1:25; Gen_1:31; Gen_3:6; Gen_6:2; Gen_6:5; Gen_9:22; Gen_9:23; Gen_12:15; Gen_16:4; Gen_16:5; Gen_18:2; Gen_21:9; Gen_21:19; Gen_22:4; Gen_24:30; Gen_24:63; Gen_24:64; Gen_26:8; Gen_28:6; Gen_29:10; Gen_29:31; Gen_30:1; Gen_30:9; Gen_31:10; Gen_32:2; Gen_32:25; Gen_33:5;"""

 

After the last reference (Gen_33:5) it is followed by """

I believe this is indicating there is more info to follow but it can't display it. I am thinking this is a word count limitation in this window and this is what i am trying to get around.

Maybe this is what you mean by "incomplete in the concordance"?

The King James Concordance in the BTSCVM is not the complete concordance as Katoog stated, in the the complete concordance the number of cross references for the word saw is 306 and all 306 are displayed along with additional variations of the word saw

The BTSCTVM+ dictionary has the most errors of all the concordances, so I don't use it anymore.
'''' is probably an error in SQL database of the BTSCTVM+ that is ignored by the maker.
If you use it for the TVM of verbs then should you better use NSBD(T) that is Niobi aka Patchworkid's Study Bible Dictionary (Teachings).
