Hello everyone! I have been a long time e-Sword user, and love the program. Within the past couple of years, I've noticed that the Ctrl+L hotkey to get you to the reference entry box doesn't always work. This week I finally narrowed down when it works. It appears that if the mouse is in the menu and title bar region, it works. If the window is not maximized, and the mouse is anywhere outside of e-sword, it works. However, if the mouse pointer is in the Bible, Commentary, or Dictionary windows, the Ctrl+L hotkey does not work. In addition, if I have the cursor in the reference lookup box, and move the mouse over from one of the windows in e-Sword to another window, without clicking, the cursor disappears from the verse lookup window when e-Sword automatically makes the other window gain 'focus.' 

 

Here's the question...has anyone found a way to make the Ctrl+L always work? I use that shortcut constantly when I'm studying, and it's very frustrating for it to only sometimes work. Has anyone else had this issue?

 

Thanks!

I have seen the same change and am not real fond of it. Don't know of anything to do about it, though. Since the mouse is always at my right hand, I just go ahead and click the reference box most of the time when the hotkey fails, then key in my scripture choice.
