Here is a modified screen shot of what I wish e-sword looked like.

The e-Sword Icon on the Main Toolbar opens a drop-down Main Menu (File, Bible, Commentary, Dictionary, Tools, Options, Download, Window, Help)

Header Bars of Bible, Commentary, Dictionary, Editors house all the main icons for use in each window

Single Row or Multiple Row Tabs can be selected for each window independently using the Up-Dn Icon just before the Pin Icon.

Editor Window has all editor tools on 2 Toolbars, or movable bars.

It's not programmably difficult to do. All it takes is a few (four) Boolean statement in an if statement. Its just setting something to be set up to programmably read as either true of false, and that's about it. Its something that I've done in a program I've written some time ago where the options are given using a couple of radio buttons.

private void rbnSquare_CheckedChanged(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
//Reset the cursor
txtLength.Focus();

//Hide the Height textbox and label
txtHeight.Visible=false;
lblHeight.Visible=false;
}

private void rbnCubic_CheckedChanged(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
//Reset the cursor
txtLength.Focus();

//Show the Height textbox and label
txtHeight.Visible=true;
lblHeight.Visible=true;
}

This is just an example of how one can programmably change things in a program during an operation. And its something like that is all that can be done by just having either a few extra radio or check buttons added.

I trust this bit of information is helpful.

Blessings,
Stephen (Php 1:21).

Niobi,

We are unable to modify e-Sword. There's no where for us to put Stephen's code or any practical way for us to use it. Only the developer has the source code. Stephen is showing one way he believes it could be done. If Rick likes it, it might happen. Otherwise it won't and that's pretty much that. :)

Hi OK
It was an idea that Dyan came up with. It look like another nice way to study e-Sword from.

I won't say anything else about it.
Peace out (good night)

From the POV of A11Y, that is very bad design.
If you were to eliminate the icons, and use a menu with functions names, it would be much better, from an A11Y POV.
