Using maps and atlases in the Olive Tree Bible App is a great way to learn more about the Bible. You can open your maps set or atlas in the main window to view a map there. This article will also show you how to zoom in on a map in the Parallel window in the Study Center.
Be sure you have a maps set or atlas in your Library before you start. To download books in your app, refer to this article.
Zoom in on a Map in the Main Window
To start, click on the Library icon to open the list of your downloaded resources.
Click on the maps set or atlas from your Library list. In this example, I will be using the Olive Tree Bible Maps.
When the resource is open in the main window, click on a map to open it full screen:
You can use control and the scroll wheel or a finger pinch on a trackpad to zoom in on the map. You can also swipe to the right and left on the map to see all the details if you are using a track pad. In the image above, you can see the left side of the map. Below, you can see how I have swiped to the right side of the map:
If you are using a mouse instead of a track pad, hover over the grey bar at the bottom of the map. After a couple seconds, it will turn into a scroll bar that you can click on and drag from side to side to see each section of the map.
To close the full-size map, click anywhere outside the map within the app.
Zoom in on a Map in the Parallel Window
Use the Library to open a Bible in the main window. Click on the green bar at the bottom of the screen that says Open Study Center. If you don't see the green bar, click anywhere within the app to bring it up.
When the Study Center is open, click on the Parallel icon that looks like this:
This will bring up a list of the resources in your Library. Scroll through until you find the maps set or atlas you want to open and click on it.
Click on a map to open it full screen.
From here, you can follow the same steps for the main window to scroll in the map and to close it. Since this map is long, I can also use the track pad to swipe up and down to view different sections of the map. On my mouse, I can use the scroll wheel to scroll up and down on the map. Once again, you can use control and the scroll wheel or a finger pinch on a trackpad to zoom in on the map.
