    Have you ever given thought to implementing a scripture memory tool? That would be a very nice addition.
    Thanks very much for SwordSearcher!

    I have thought of this often. The hard part is deciding on an effective method that can be incorporated into a functional tool. I am open to suggestions about scripture memory techniques people find effective that could be "digitized."

    The way I have done it with SwordSearcher, personally, is just to maintain weekly Bible verse memorization lists in a user book, and review the entries.

    Actually, I was just thinking of something as simple as flash cards. I've seen other tools that offer different types of "tests", such as having you type the first letter of each word in the verse to make the whole word appear. I have to admit though, your approach really is simple and painlessly obvious (which is probably why I didn't think of it). If I just list the reference I can mouse over it and see the text in the pop up window; that's really just like having flash cards.

    It would be great if I could set a verse or passage reference (or references) that would open in popup-type flashcards when SwordSearcher is opened, and/or that could be operated from within SS. There could be random words missing or phrases missing that would show when touched by the cursor. You could have one flashcard pop up at a time with 'Next' and 'Previous' buttons... And if a person didn't want to select the verses for the flashcards, there could be a 'Random' checkbox for SS to choose verses. That would be very digital. :) (The user should be able to set the duration of the verses in a set to be memorized - especially in the Random option. So the same verses come up each time... And a Keep or Pass option so if a verse comes up that you really don't want to memorize, you can send it on its way.)

    It would be nice to be able to put the flashcards into manageable sets, and to have a right-click option for the verses in the Bible panel to send the verse to the flashcards, and to be able to 'sticky note' a flashcard to the computer screen outside of SS, like a Get 'Em Done note. :)
