I would like to see a new Notes feature under the Editor page configured to Strong's Numbers possibly called "word notes" that would correspond to a dictionary module as Study Notes corresponds to a Commentary Module.
I'm not exactly certain as to what you are getting at. With that said, Strong numbers in all of the note editors can be automatically seen by the tooltip. All one needs to do is type, e.g., G123, or H123, and then place the cursor over it, and up pops the definition on what ever Strong's Numbered dictionary has been selected.
The Dictionary definition can be pasted directly into any of the note editors by clicking on, e.g., Paste Into Study Notes, from the context menu. This is the same as all of e-Sword's references.
However, to have what one can see in the Bible window of a note, programmatically this would, if not impossible, be extremely difficult to do due to the type of controls that are used in e-Sword. Biggest problem one has to overcome is where to put the marker (an icon, or some other indicator) showing a note, or reference. It can be placed in an rtf text box or text control, but would only show up for that particular reference. Then one has to remember that reference and actual dictionary resource used; thus making it really difficult.
Furthermore, when it comes to the one we see used in Bible Windows, it doesn't matter which translation of the Bible one uses, as the marker is set next to the actual Scripture (Chapter and Verse) reference. But when it comes to dictionaries and commentaries, there is no such place where to place the markers for notes.
Theoretically, great idea. But in practice, extremely awkward and nigh impossible.
