Opening and Adjusting the Split Window
The Study Center is in the split window. It can be opened by tapping the green bar at the bottom of the screen that says 'Open Study Center'. If this bar is not showing, tap the screen once to bring up the toolbar.
Adjusting the split window size depends on whether you have your device in portrait or landscape. When your app is in portrait, tap the three-line icon in the upper right corner to adjust the size. When your app is in landscape, the tab in the center of the border between the main and split window will allow you to adjust the size. If you drag the bar far enough that the split window is too small, the Study Center will auto minimize.
When the app is in portrait mode, double tap the three-line icon to open the split window full screen. Double tap the icon again to return the split window to its previous spot on the screen.
Study Center Options
There are four Study Center options that can be opened in the split window. As you navigate between the different tabs your place will be saved. Here are the options:
As you read along in your Bible, the Resource Guide follows you and looks in your Library for any information that is relevant to your reading. The information in the Resource Guide will update automatically as you scroll through your resource in the main window.
The Resource Guide is designed to quickly move between information from your downloaded resources that relates to the Bible text. By design the Resource Guide tab will return to the menu when you return to the app.
To save your place we recommend Parallel (see next section). Parallel is designed for reading two resources in parallel for long periods will save your place while you use the resource guide or other apps for further study.
The Parallel tab allows you to view a library item parallel to your main window. With this layout, you can compare different translations or view a commentary or study notes next to the Bible text in the main window.
In the Notes tab, you can view, edit, and create notes.
In the Lookup tab, you can see all of the information in your library that relates to a particular subject. When you first tap this tab, you will be presented with a list of possible topics. Tap one to view all the results. If you don't see a topic you want to tap on, use the search option at the top of the list to locate a topic quickly. Tap the topic at the top of the window to switch between topics.
While using the Resource Guide or Parallel, you can link your Main window with the Study Center.
There is a setting to choose if windows link to the Main window. Follow the steps below to edit which windows are linked:
- Tap the Settings icon on the toolbar (gear icon).

- Window Linking settings can be found at the bottom of this list.
While Window Linking is turned on, if you look in the lower right corner of the Resource Guide or Parallel tabs you will see one of the following icons.
Unlinked - This icon indicates that the windows are currently unlinked. If you scroll in the main window, while this icon is showing, the Resource Guide/Parallel window will not scroll along. Tapping the Unlinked icon will Relink the windows.
Linked - This icon indicates that the Windows are currently linked. If you scroll in the main window, the Resource Guide/Parallel window will follow along. However, if you scroll in the Resource Guide/Parallel window the link will be broken. If you tap this icon you will lock the window link.
Locked Link - This icon indicates that the Window link is locked. When the Link is locked the link will not break, unless you tap this icon again to unlock the link.
